best intra workout drink?

  1. best intra workout drink?


    howdy guys how ya'll doin on this wonderful spring day?

    I have a quick question:

    what do you guys think is the best drink to be drinking during your workout?

    My brother has a whole tub of Xtend that he doesn't use so I was thinking about giving that a try, any suggestions?


  2. Universal Nutrition's Intra Aid. Hands down the best intra workout drink I have ever tried.

  3. Just use the Xtend, you already have it so why not use it?

  4. Best is Intrabolic by Athletic Edge Nutrition.

    But you have some Xtend on hand so just use that. Its pretty good stuff.

    Intra-aid universal !!!!!!!!! THe bomb and the other are good too

  6. anything with a bunch of BCAA's in it. thats all you need. nothing fancy. i recently started doing like 20g of the nutraplanet bulk BCAA's and i also just started german volume training... it helps out soooo much. i think you will be happy with xtend.

  7. I like PurplE WrAAth Lemonade by Controlled Lab's and Intra-Aid Citrus Burst by Universal Nutrition.

    The Intra-Aid Citrus Burst seriously tastes like those orange twin popsicles you can buy in the supermarket with the different flavors, it's that good, lol.

  8. 8 scoops of xtend intra-wo would be great considering your weight. I usually use 10-12 but I'm a bigger fellow. Also, mixng it the night before is nice if you want to avoid choking down a bunch of BCAA scuds. I'd load up on the water earlier in the day; a large dose of BCAAs tends to dehydrate me a bit during my work-out. If you wanted to go the carb route, bulk p-slin with waxy maize is my absolute fave.

  9. Rhyno- 8 scoops seems a little excessive doesn't it?

    The recommended use is a little unclear stating:

    As a dietary supplement, mix 2 scoops in water shake well. Depending on bodyweight (< 160lbs: 2 scoops), split the dose before and during workout. Then it says regardless of body weight, consume 1 serving immediately post-workout.

    Does that mean the initial 2 scoops I should drink before/during and then another 2 scoops after? Or 2 scoops before, 2 scoops during, and 2 scoops post? That would still only add up to 6.

  10. Believe it or not, I love Muscle Milk. Great energy, pumps & fast recoverry.

    Flame away!

    I like muscle milk too... but I doubt it has much at all to do with your pumps.

  13. xtend works fine for me, no DOMS. Though the lemonade tastes like piss, get the watermelon flavor.

  14. You already have the extend, so use that. If you want, get some carbs to throw in with it. And i agree with zero, get the watermelon flavor.

  15. i love me my orange xtend!

  16. I have 'refreshing grape'

    I'll let you know just how refreshing it is next week when i hop on my workout program.

    Yes, it is basically a megadose. I guess you missed the whole "megadosing xtend craze" back in '06.

    In all seriousness, high doses of xtend (or BCAA's in general) are pretty powerful. When I used to go 12+ scoops, I'd get back-pumps during my workouts. Give it a try, if 8 is too much drop down to 6 scoops.

  19. i currently stack xtend (watermelon) w/ purple wraath (grape) to get the EAAs and BCAAs... next i'm gonna try the LG BCAA+EAA product.

  20. Scivation Xtend is my only intra drink. I love it!
    I'm Back...

  21. 25g BCAAs +
    5g mono +
    1/2 x Jack3d +
    2 x Swell +
    6 x Glycergro

    Sip 70-80% intra and slam down the rest after.

  22. CAN we just say Intra-aid is the bomb!!!! 31.00 ducks for see below.. Intr-aid oh how I love you oh how you make me feel in the gym oh intra-aid you are a freind to me when my mind and body refuse to rep one more, you give me the power to move Mountain tops intra-aid you are the one for me, so if you are ready for somthing that will love you in the gym drink Intra-AID!!!

    If you buy bulk EAA's, BCAA's, Beta Alanine and the other goodies you will make a mix with a much larger per serving amount than anything you can buy in the store.. saving a ton of money in the long run too.

    Not to be a tool either, but someone with initiative would use his general knowledge gleamed from experience or at least the search function on AnabolicMinds to answer that question.

    The time taken would be rewarded with the gift of accomplishment and knowledge itself.

    Glad you fellas are liking Intra-Aid. It is the bodybuilder's workout drink. I used to homebrew my own intra workout drink but I am glad that we have Intra-Aid now because it's a lot easier and tastes a heck of a lot better than my homebrews.

  38. LOook at my monster stack. Karbolyn intrabolic and pslin. It is awesome.
