    Recommend an Intra-Workout Supplement..


    Hello, I just finished a tub of Intravol, wasn't half bad really. I've tried some intra-workout products like Volumaize, Purple Wraath, Synthesize, and SizeOn which was my favorite. Anybody wanna recommend me a new one please? Thanks and cheers!

    good choice

    you can also go with Xtend and/or Purple Wraath

    i say and/or because i actually stack these two with good results.

    if you go that way, i recommend Xtend watermelon and Purple Wraath in juicy grape

    Thanks for the input guys, and Ultima sounds pretty good, but isn't it a big creatine kinda product? Are there good results with it? Thanks!

    Man looks like youve already tried em all. You really love your intra-workout supps huh? I never tried one, what exactly are you getting out of em? energy or just starting the rebuilding process even earlier?

    If anything Id suggest protein and or amino acids for intra workout. Definatly if your one of those long workout sessions guys. Im almost always not.

    Ultima seems to be more of a preworkout product. I didn't care for the dose of beta alanine in intrabolic. Any bcaa or eaa product should suffice for an intraworkout supplement.

    I really liked Training Day Game Time, but I drank it before. Having to digest durring a workout is a drain on energy, as it pulls more blood to the GI.

    How come nobody mentioned Intra-Aid Citrus Burst from Universal Nutrition ??

    That's by far the best tasting and best preforming intra-workout supplement I've tried (PurplE WrAAth is a very close second).

    After I dose my Formex and X-Force pre-workout, I mix up 2 scoops of IA in a big bottle of smart water and I'm ready to destroy some weight !

    It's a shame they use a proprietary blend thus leaving the consumer to rely on the manufacturer to sensibly formulate the product. But looking at the product label, I would think 2 servings are likely to be required thus making it quite pricey.

    This is what I have been doing. I have Xtend and mix additional leucine and glutamine + WMS. I am looking at ordering BA and some Citrulline Malate in bulk and might add some of that in as well.

    I dont use glutamine at all, because from reading I was under the impression its mainly used only when cutting to maintiain muscle.

    Is that true or can it be used bulking effectively as well? and is it best used intra workout like you do?

    sorry for all the questions!

    Glutamine gets used by your small intestine for energy before making it into the blood. It's the prefered source of energy for that organ. If you want to IV it, it could aid recovery.

    The reason I have been using it is cause I have it laying around. Make myself feel good for throwing another thing in there!

    Also, intra aid looks good, I just kinda wish it had some citrulline malate in there.

    1 serving is plenty. With 1 serving of Intra-Aid you get 8 grms of high quality hydrolyzed whey, 10 grms of Free Form Amino Acids, 10 grms of carb & electrolytes.

    I am not a big fan of prop blends either however I understand why they are used. It would do us no good to put out an underdosed product. We have a 30 year reputation and we are not going to risk it by putting out ineffective products to make a quick buck.
