  1. Scivation Xtend or Modern BCAA


    I've been looking into an intraworkout and these two have been the two highest rated. Has anyone tried both of these and can compare the effects?


  2. My vote would be for Xtend

  4. AI RecoverPro Red Raspberry.

    There's a nasty rumor not to trust me on this, but if you read all 50 pages of that thread you'll see it was just a lark!

    Seriously, AI RecoverPro Red Raspberry, best value BCAA!

  5. My vote would be modernbcaa

    - good flavors
    - higher ratio of leucine
    - sustamine wont start smelling funky if your mix sits a while...as I usually mix some and sip throughout the day

  6. Xtend, simply because there's more data on the 2:1:1 bcaa ratio than the the 8:1:1 USP labs uses. But both are definitely solid products, either one would work

    It is a true statement, you can almost NEVER trust Milas. However, he is correct with this one. Red Raspberry is very good and quite affordable. I have also tried both of the other one's, the xtend and MBCAA's. I like them both but find xtend to be a better ratio, flavor, and mixing.

    Optimum nutrition makes a unflavored bcaa which is less than 20 bucks for 60 servings. Goes great with crystal light and a spoon of optimum nutrition creapure unflavored.

    Red Raspberry RecoverPRO is definitely the way to go on this one. Just whatever you do--do not get the lemon. Seriously. It's a total Brit's flavour. And as has been stated, Milas is most certainly not trustworthy. He is also a pathological liar. I, however, am not. So, his lie happened to be a truth and my truths are always truths...ya dig?

    And I've used both ModernBCAA and Xtend (not the new version, though) and both are fine. I prefer 4:1:1, though.

    I do like ON and get their unflavored protein powder (Any Whey) but I've had unflavored BCAA's and they taste incredibly foul, even when I tried to disguise the taste in something else.

    I haven't gone to the lengths that kingjames has, but if I'm using any unflavored BCAAs, I want them mixed with a flavored BCAA product, which tends to be stronger than Crystal Light or anything comparable.

  12. I haven't used either of those two things you have spoke of but I've heard a couple nice things about xtend and 3 nice things about modern, so I know they're both good. I honestly think it's not that big of a deal which one you go with, I think it's more about preference. That's why I drink Lemon flavored RecoverPRO, it is tasty and perfect, and also the only recovery drink I've ever used in my entire life. I prefer it, and so should YOU.

    I can't imagine biting a lemon but I agree on the RecoverPro Lemon flavored.

  14. I suggest everyone makes a HOMEMADE version of xtend like I do. Buy the 1 kilo BCAAs, bulk glutamine, bulk citrulline malate, and then get some b6 capsules. Buy a really cheap food scale. I do two servings during a workout. I measure 14 g bcaas, 5 g glutamine, 2 g citrulline malate, and pour in some of the b6 powder from the capsules. Add some flavoring packet and BAM xtend cheaper than the real thing.

    yeah I'd think I'd need much more flavor masking to down it. I still got 3/4 of a tub of PP's unflavored iBCAA's. Mixes very well, probably one of the best, but the taste is like Milas breath in the morning.

    You sir, are a complete liar as well. Don't try to mislead the OP with that Lemon trash. We all know Red Raspberry is where it's at, they have plenty in stock so no need to worry about the secret getting out.

    Seriously though, I've tried working with the bulk unflavored BCAA, and it SUCKS. Doing that with crystal light actually costs more I've found, than getting a good deal on RecoverPro. It's totally worth it to get a good flavored BCAA you'll enjoy and drink rather than a tub of rubbish you have to choke down and end up not using.

    I've mixed bulk (not NP's) BCAAs with GV flavoring and I didn't like it at all. I used grape and I can't recall the other flavor; cherry, maybe (but I had the individual travel packets, not the big container--not sure if there's any difference, as in store, I only saw the big containers with sugar and not the 10cal/serving, like the individual packets). The big thing for me, though, is that I mix my aminos in a half-gallon jug and drink them through my entire workout; not just in a normal-sized shaker. So that's where the biggest difference lies for me, probably.

    yeah the unflavored are nasty but I'm not sure about this one. I always like to get feedback from other people before I buy another tub of aminos. I got too many open ones now already. Some cause I wanted to try them and some because I'm going through them slowly cause they really suck.

    Modern BCAA's taste wasn't bad but I thought the mixability was terrible, no matter how I did it.

    The whole container (of the cups) into a kilo kills the taste. The packets require at least all 6 packets and some...

  33. Does the grape do a decent job of masking the taste? I have tried this before with other powdered drink packets and it didn't work too well

    Sorry I didn't see this reply before I posted.. Have you tried other flavors and are they as good at covering the taste or is it just grape?

    IIRC I may have tried fruit punch.

    The fact that the grape is strong enough that there is zero BCAA taste is a good indication of the potential for other flavors to do as good a job. Although grape is notorious for effective masking.

  36. AMS Body Mortar CF

    I love this stuff, mixes well tastes great and carb free.... it says 30 servings... i swear theres more cause an entire jug lasts me almost 30 days and i double dose it every workout day (5days a week)... Has a great 4:1:1 profile +glutamine...

    Also its CHEAP. Like 20 bucks at most places.

    I do have to agree with you on the body mortar but I love my carbs so I go with original.

  38. It is a little pricey, but Core ABCs is the best BCAA supplement (and then some) that I have tried. I have also used Extend and enjoy the taste of Core ABCs much better.

    oh believe you me, I love the carbs.... just not intra workout... I want to stimulate GH release as much as possible and save the insulin flood for my post workout meal.

    Just me.

    Also when dieting and taking things like Rauwolscine or ephedrine that is best taken on an empty stomach 30min-1hr before food (avoiding insulin) then I like to drink aminos first thing in the morning while these are kicking in to prevent catabolism.

    plus their CF version is greatly flavored, I usually HATE diet drinks with sweeteners.... I cant even tell the difference with Body Mortar CF.

  40. Xtend's new formula for blue raspberry is delicious. its a little too delicious actually, which causes me to pointlessly drink too much of it.
