    Between those two I would go with VPX but I personally use this vvvv and it's a really good product and the price is much better

    I've used powershock, in fact I have another tub on my counter. It doesn't compare to Anabolic Competition, just compare labels and look at the dosages. In AI you're getting a full gram of Agmatine, most competing products sprinkle it in. You're also getting more nitrates as well.

    That alone makes me prefer EAAs!
    Only problem is that if one eats a meal 1-3 hr pre-wo there will be all the eaa's still in the blood to fuel the full effects of bcaa's. So if your not training fasted a bcaa product is just as good as an eaa product.

    I have agmatine on hand, actually is by MF lol, but I'm too lazy to measure it every time so having in that would be great.

    How does it taste?

    Solid point for sure, something I have read many times.

    This is true, but i see two flaws:1) the food eaten must be a complete source of protein2) the amount of EAAs in said food is potentially lowFor example, theres only 18mg of Histidine per gram of protein in complete food source.Taking an EAA product you would absorb them all at once, in much larger amounts. And we know timing of nutrients around a workout is essential to success. Theres too many variables to factor in for this to be a legit reason to pick BCAAs over EAAs.

    funny how you started a thread asking about picking specifically from two and people still ignore that and recommend something else!

    i fill my shaker to the brim, so w/e it is will be watered down for sure.

    but i was looking at those too. im sure the vpx stuff will taste chemically, like their shotgun and synthesize, which were good products but tasted awful.

    anyhow, open for 20 and under recomendations. but 55 bucks, no thanks.

    also thought about xtend, i know that stuff taste pretty good.
    I agree, VPX does have a chemically nasty taste. I didn't like their Power Shock and their Synthesize was even worse, like drinking concentrated Robitesum cough syrup, flavor wise. I did a very comprehensive review on BSN's Amino X on bb. Formula is ok but taste is much better.

    Me! If i'm going to be drinking it all the time, I shouldn't have to gag it down and try to keep from puking. There has been some wonderful advances in flavoring and with the large diversity of products out there now, there's no need to settle for junk IMO.

    I have to agree with you on taste... can completely derail a workout if you are sipping on cow piss.

    That said my post workout shake sometimes makes me wanna puke.. I guess thats why sometimes I stretch out my workouts... I just have a hard time drinking 10g bcaas mixed in a casein shake.... (also my stomach cant handle milk proteins... just drinking it up cause my mom sent me a bottle cause she thought I wanted protein from america....)

    I understand the use for eaa's. The debate will never end. I was just throwing some food for thought out there. I got that knowledge from layne norton myself. The "truth" is always different depending on who you ask lol.

    I tend to agree with your approach here when bulking.

    Not great, but I mix it with a sugar free raspberry vitamin water and that does the trick.
