    intra workout nutrition - which product?


    Was looking to get some 'intrain' by controled labs, but it's now OOS.

    What other product is there on the market which is similar? Looking to sip on something throughout the workout with BCAA's + electrolytes and any extra goodies

    since elite whey tested in at around 20% less protein than advertised, I have lost faith in dymatize.

    purple wrath has 7g EAA, I wonder how much of those is BCAA?

    LG's product looks good, but all 3 flavours are OOS

    recoverpro looks ok as well, but never come across a 4:1:1 ratio before

    You weigh 143lbs(you only need 1 scoop), someone that weighs more will have to use more, so it won't last very long for someone that is 200+lbs. Although, the Berry Banana flavor sounds delicious!

    i think 200 plus is still 2 scoops which will still last as long as about 2 or 3 xtend jars, and i don't like purple wrath, so i'd still go with the chain'd out

    Xtend is $43 for 90 servings w/ 7g BCAA (630g total) per serving ($.478/serving)
    Chain'd Out is $34 for 60 servings w/ 7g BCAA (420g total) per serving ($.567/serving)


    Someone's not very good at math.

    RecoverPRO is $43 for 147 servings w/ 6g BCAA (882g total) per serving ($.293/serving).

    200+ requires 3 scoops. I agree about the PW though, I got burned out on the taste of that stuff(both flavors), but it does have an awesome nutritional profile.

    can't always go by what they say, a jar of xtend lasted me like a month, i've been using chain'd out at a scoop and a half everyday since october 7th, and i still have a few weeks left of the stuff

    My standard concoction is: 10g Leucine, 10g Whey Hydrolysate, 10g Pepto-Pro. Recently, I realized that the EAA in LG's BC+EAA is a hydrolysate blend and began using that with my Pepto-Pro instead. I highly recommend the Kiwi Watermelon.

    If, however, you want just straight up BCAAs, as some prefer, RecoveryPro or Bulk Leucine w/ some Citrus Dew Flavoring is the way to go.

    LG bc+eaa has everything any other formula on the market has except beta alanine which can be added dirt cheap in bulk from NP, it also has a better price point and better taste (which becomes important when drinking during a WO).

    I was going to go with BC+EAA, but all three flavours are OOS at the planet.

    I'm thinking purple wrath at the moment TBH

    A tub of RecoverPRO will last seemingly forever.

    I'd check out either LG's BCAA+EAA or AI's RecoverPRO. Good values and effective.

    I'm with you. Try your own concoction. I do Zero cal Crystal+Bcaa's.

    Sometimes I'll also do 'White flood' mixed with BCAA's.

    This is a personal preference, but H2O for me. I just don't like drinking anything other than water while working out or training. Unless I'm pushing for hard for hours, such as my long runs/marathon etc then I'll eat and/or drink something to sustain, looking for quick carbs, BCAA's, and a few protein. If it's to purely be a drink then like mentioned above, 4:1:1 ratio's preferred.

    Many peri-workout supps vying for your dollar. I like bulk raws which offer greater flexibility in customizing. My current choice:

    - 100 grams waxy maize or 50/50 mix with sugar
    - 25 grams of cold processed whey, inclusive of di-tri peptides and multi-gram dose of colostrum proteins
    - 25 grams of BCAA's
    - 10 grams of creatine monohydrate. Alternatively, 1 gram of Kre-Alkalyn
    - Dash of sodium
    - Crystal light to taste

    This drink provides high molecular weight carbohydrates needed to replenish glycogen/stimulate insulin release, complete proteins and EAA profile along with generous amounts of BCAA's and research proven creatine monohydrate. The smidgeon of sodium is included to facilitate uptake of those nutrient that are sodium dependent to cross the cell gradient (creatine is just one).

    Protein shake with BCAA before you workout, water during, Gatorade directly after, then another protein and BCAA shake within 30 mins. I've been doing this forever and it works great for me.

    If you really feel the need for a supplement during your workout, I'd mix in a scoop of BCAA powder with a 20 oz Gatorade and save some money.

    Considering you want BCAAs then Intrain may not be the best choice. Yes it does have L-Leucine but the only other free-form amino acid is L-Glycine.

    If you want all the amino acids in free-form and from WPH, along with Electrolytes, I would recommend IntrAbolic.

    If you are simply looking for BCAAs, then there are many great viable options, such as:
    - RecoverPRO
    - ICE
    (2 of which i prefer for just BCAAs)

    Intra-Aid is the bodybuilder's workout drink. In one serving you get:

    8 grams of high quality hydrolyzed whey
    10 grams of Free Form Amino's including beta alanine and all the EAA's & BCAA's
    electrolytes
    a great carb blend
