    Best & Worst of 2013


    What is the best & worst supplement that you have used in 2013?

    Best for me was ArA(X-Gels) without a doubt.
    Worst for me was PreSurge. All it did was gave me explosive diarrhea

    Stimul8 (And I may be biased, but I'm honest)

    Edit: I won't mention my worst as it doesn't really matter and I'm not in to forum wars.

    Too many options...


    Best: AS forkolin-95 in terms of effectiveness,
    my favourite new addition is definitely Select Protein though, quality protein source that tastes phenomenal.

    Worst:
    Anabolic Designs product Ravenous seemed to do nothing but cause GI distress and make me sick with continued use.

    Bias alert: Best - PF3 by MAN Sports. Un*****ed recovery and lean growth.

    Best non-MAN - Cellucor Cor-fetti protein. Found a recipe for a Cor-fetti protein cake with Cor-fetti icing and it's been a fun breakfast/snack.

    Worst - Jack3d Micro. (2013? Can't remember.) 10 scoops in and I dumped it. Did absolutely nothing for me. In fairness, Jack3d Advanced is a much better product IMO.

    worst: betaine HCL powder from a smart provider of powders... was labeled as betaine anhydrous. Lets just say taking 3 grams of this stuff on an empty stomach made me feel sick as **** each time until I realized they mislabeled their own product. Still awaiting my refund.

    best: alphamine, reduce xt


    dissapointment but not worst: oxyelite vanilla protein. Taste was very average for a vanilla, not bad, but not great

    I stopped ordering from SP. My last Betaine was over one year expired, and my last THREE orders were all missing products. It's a joke now that mike stopped working with them

    Best: reduce xt and pump igniter
    -reduce xt works for me every time, no stims either which is a nice addition to any cutting stack
    -pump igniter is by far my favorite pre workout so far- I really liked the agmatine addition to this pre workout

    Worst: DAA and Vanillean
    -probably just me but DAA just caused mood swings and zero difference in performance
    -vanillean I took a whole bottle while dieting and noticed no results beyond what would be ecpectes for normal dieting/training however I will say raspberry ketone type products don't do it for me

    It may act as a GDA, which can potentially increase the depth of ones sleep through increased GH pulse during the night.

    The only effect I noticed from the vanillean was a warmer body the first few times pre exercise, not really thermogenic just warmth. This effect subsided and through 2 bottles I didn't notice increased fat loss or body comp effects. The day after I bought it Cooper made a post on its under dosed and relatively ineffective ingredients, well those comments were true.

    For body composition TMG at 3g has been special for me, very underrated. Note though it has been continuous use.

    I take Agmatine and LCLT pre bed and my sleep is much deeper with them, leading to a greater GH release. I wake up refreshed and my body always requires a nice stretch which I have not had recently, I also feel taller after continuous use; albeit I am 23 and still probably growing. In saying that, I am sure agmatine has played a role in assisting growth with the improved sleep.

    Are you able to locate Coopers post regarding the underdosing, I am curious which ingredients he thinks are. Cheers
