    Xtend serving size


    So I just got my Xtend by Scivitation in from NP. I am 6'3 245lbs and the jar recommends that people greater than 180lbs take 4 scoops and then a scoop after the workout...at that rate the jar will be empty in a week. Is it necessary for me to take such a large does? Would two scoops suffice? I take superpump 250 35 minutes before my workout and drink whey after. My plan is to sip the Xtend during my workout.

    What do you guys think?

    There's 180 scoops in there... so it should last quite some time with 4 scoops. You're a big guy, if you're even reasonably lean - 4 scoops in an appropriate dose.

    I'd probably go with 3 scoops before/during your workout...

    I do 2 scoops, but I'm quite a bit smaller than you...

    if your taking whey protein post workout then it's not that necessary to take the xtend.

    I think he has the 30 serving, not the 60. You can just do 3 scoops, and skip the PWO dose and instead of your normal protein shake.

    I take 4 scoops as well. I fly through the stuff at this dosage though which is the only downfall.

    I am right at 180lbs. I will have 1scoop xtend, 2 scoops vasocharge preworkout. Then 3 scoops for during workout. Somedays I do AM cardio, so I will have 3 then. If I am not lifting, I take 3 scoops sometime during day. If I lift afterwork and don't do AM cardio, I fix a bottle with 3 scoops to work and start my day with that. Typically, I use 6 scoops a day minimum. I get the xtend and vasocharge combo (smoking deal-around $59 for both) and only take vasocharge when I lift. Both usually run out around the same time. Right at a month, maybe a bit longer.

    I think it depends on if your cutting or bulking. If your cutting you will definitely want to be utilizing the dosing protocol. If you are bulking I think you could get away dosing it lower and slowing down your utilization of the product.

    just sayin

    So is vasocharge something I should look into to add to my current regimen. I am taking nothing serious, just a few helpers.

    two scoops superpump 250 pre workout
    4 scoops xtend during workout
    3 scoops whey protein isolate post workout

    If you are taking superpump you dont wanna take vaso too. But you can get vaso with xtend for a really good price.....and I love vasocharge.

    Has anyone tried the new Blue Raspberry Xtend yet? I think that will be my next flavor if I can get the combo deal with it.

    I used to double up on Xtend but the flavoring was too concentrated for the amount of water in my shaker, so I use 2 scoops Xtend + 10g BCAA.

    So I figured out what was making me sick with the Xtend. Apparently my roomate wanted to try the Xtend to see if he should buy some, well he used his whey protein scoop in my Xtend and left it in there. I usually am in a rush to get to the gym so I mix my sups rather quickly and I have been using that scoop which is easily 2.5 times bigger than the scoop that comes in Xtend. Today my workout felt great and no sickness. O and I have been reading alot on Superpump 250 and alot of people hate on it. Should I be using something else? It hasn't been giving me any G.I. distress.

    If you don't have any GI reactions to Superpump, I don't see why you wouldn't continue with it. I got a huge rush with it, but got the squirts too. lol Everybody reacts differently.

    After you finish the tub of superpump 250 you should definately try vasocharge you
    won't have any stomach issues with this product and the stim is not that strong as
    other products but you workout stamina, energy, and pump will be fantastic. Vasocharge
    and JP8 from Diesel Nut. are the 2 preworkout powders that I rotate using and both are
    products I highly recommend.

    Vaso and Xtend combo is THE way to go...you basically get the Vaso for $5. I was taking 12 scoops a day(of Xtend), for a while. I drank on it all day. Never had any problems with the gut. I also tried Chained out by ALRI. Their flavoring is incredible.

    I agree with most of the people who said it is probably Superpump getting you ill. Try backing off the dose a little and see if it helps, or maybe taking in a little more water with it.

    I know I should have bought the combo, but NP had a deal that if you bought vasocharge you got a free tub of scivitation's whey protein. I bought the lemonade I believe. If I didn't have like 3/4 of a tub of Xtend at the house I would have bought the combo.

    BTW, I just got my Blue Raspberry xtend in and it is pretty darn good. My staples are grape (just finished) orange, did a watermelon (ok, not favorite), and now Blue Raspberry. 1 scoop of this with 2 scoops lemon vaso rocks.

    I have generally been using two scoops of vaso pre workout and then 4 scoops of Xtend during workout. Then whey immediately after.

    I got the large tub back around May when they released it for a limited time and loved it. I'm glad they re-released it, and I grabbed another large tub of it. It is THE best tasting flavor they have period.
