    Intra-Workout Options


    I've been lurking for awhile, but I haven't seen much about intra-workouts lately. So I'm curious what are the best options out there from the intra-workout category?

    I really like Compete right now, and I use it as both a pre-workout (in conjunction with Hemavol for non-stim purposes) and as an intra-workout. So I drink it before and during my workouts. The Tangy Tangerine is probably the best tasting supplement in any category I have ever had.

    Cellucor Cor beta BCAAs is my favourite if you want a intra product that is chock full of extra goodies.

    Recently though, I've been using Glycofuse + Aminolast.

    thats because intras arnt really that useful for a typical liftr. if youre an athlete with crazy long workouts, or you work out fasted for awhile, then thats a different story

    my vote goes to gatorade or any other sugar/electrolyte mix

    I like to use my BCAAs intra workout. It really works the best for me. I would really consider a decent supp to stack this with but my main ingredient is BCAAs. I enjoy MGNs BCAA Extended Performance. I can get you some samples if you would like just send me a private message. Good luck on your training.

    Compete is good( I like the tangy tangerine flavor). It can be used as a pre and intra and be stacked with other products such as Hemavol! You should def check it over on nutraplanet

    FINAFLEX Bcaa+SAA has been treating me very well and the green apple and blue raz flavors have been getting great reviews. My recovery has been the best its ever been which is always a good thing!

    I like to use iForce Compete.
    I have also used Biotest Plasma.

    Both work great, just depends on what you are looking for exactly. Plasma comes unflavored and recommended to be mixed in 2000mL of water. Compete is easier to handle and sits better in my stomach.

    Compete.

    The effects are noticeable your very first dose. It tastes amazing, and its entirely non-prop blend.

    i can't wait to try compete

    all i've ever really used was regular bcaa's, compete has the carnitine in it which intrigues me on performance inside the gym

    Alright. Thanks for the information, I've looked into all of the products that have been mentioned so far. I'm probably going to go with Compete and some type of fast absorption carb source.

    I've used Xtend several times in the past as well, and I will surely use it again in the future. Going to try something I haven't used yet this time around.

    aside from the price i like it a lot.
    if VPX's carbonx came in fruit flavors i'd prolly use theirs instead.

    not a fan of AAEFX so i wont buy karbolyn, and PS's Karbolic didnt mix as nicely as other ones.

    never tried gaspari's carb or allmax but eventually will.

    For the average gym goer the best way is plain old fashion water. Better for your teeth too! But for someone like me where volume is key bulk bcaas2:1:1 plus a mio squirt or 13 will be enough. I use nothing but water atm. If I had to pick a product though I would choose compete.

    Compete is a fantastic intra for all the benefits mentioned thus far - it's the one thing that I always have on hand (besides our peppermint infused fish oil) and won't compromise on...two scoops of Fruit Punch mixed with a gallon of water gets me through the day paving, and through my workout, and I couldn't ask for more noticeable benefits, a better flavoring system, or a better value.

    Please let us know what you think - your feedback is valuable to us, and we want to be sure to deliver results to the consumer. Also feel free to contact me or any member of the rep/Minions team if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
