Excell strawberry is top notch. You could also go with bulk BCAA's and flavor them with Crystal Light. I prefer powder because they're cheaper.

Nutra's bulk... It may be a coincidence but sonce starting it in the last 2 weeks I am bigger than ever. I am sitting at 218 at 5'10" and today my girl looks at me and goes, holy **** your arms look huge it's rediculous... haha

Soon to be on Excell. Can't wait. Then Maybe some bulk if Excell doesnt go good, which i highly highly doubt.

Scivation Xtend - Lemonade or Watermelon
Add some Bulk Citrulline Malate if you aren't taking more than 4 scoops of it for workouts. I recommend Stamin02 by Ergopharm. You can find it cheap if you look hard
When Performance is EVERYTHING.

I would have to say Xtend would be a good deal. I bought a kilo of BCAA from Nutra b/c their price is so great, but I find Xtend mixes better, is already flavoured and has Cit Malate too at such a tiny increase in price that it's worth it in convenience.
If NP starts selling some bulk Grapefruit flavoured BCAA's, then I'd be sold even though I still have like 800g of bulk BCAA's lol.

Excell, Purple Wraath, Xtend..they're all great. One other thing I like to do is buy some bulk leucine to add into the blends.
06-03-2007, 08:45 PM
I couldn't handle the Purple Wrath taste. Don't get me wrong, far from horrible. I just couldn't see myself taking it everyday 2-3 times.
06-03-2007, 08:58 PM
any input on xtreme formulation's ICE?
i still have 1.5 tubs of wraath to finish but ill be looking for a different flavor to try after them. the grape definitely isnt bad, but i wish they made additional flavors.... gets kinda boring

I've always taken the pills, but it's the beginning of the month and Vitamin World has Xtend for $25 so I'm going to pick it up since all you guys say it's good. I trust you guys. Question now: Read the directions and I'm confused. Are you to take 2 scoops prior AND 2 scoops post? Not such a good deal anymore if so....
06-04-2007, 04:28 PM
Wildberrry Lemonade ICE is a very good flavor. I love ICE because it mixes almost instantly and completely. Pretty hard to beat.
Based just on flavor, strawberry Excell is probably my favorite single bcaa product that I have ever used. Watermelon Xtend is pretty darn good, too.

depends on your weight, you may need 6 scoops of xtend
06-04-2007, 09:14 PM
Alright so I decided to order Watermelon Xtend, I just cant say no to a watermelon flavored supplement. But heres my next question, I'll be taking 6 scoops due to my bodyweight. So how exactly should I split it up?
2 prior, 2 during, 2 post? 3 prior 3 post? 2 when I get up, 2 post, 2 before bed? Should I be taking it during?

i've been doing 2 servings of purple wraath with all my weight workouts and have been losing decent amounts of fat on my cutter (currently 250 pounds)
i also do a serving as soon as i wake up and then hit my morning cardio session... i figure its a good medium between the "cardio on empty stomach" and "protein shake before cardio" approaches
(i just consider BCAA to be "protein that u dont digest because its already broken down" and 1 scoop xtend/purple wraath/ice would equate to like 30g protein's BCAAs with this thinking)
06-05-2007, 12:01 AM
Seriously, BCAA... WOW
Maybe it's a coincidence but in the 3 weeks wince I started adding 40-50 grams BCAA around workout time I have been gaining like I never do... Could be the Yellow gold, I am not sure but right now I am stocking up on both! :clean:
06-05-2007, 07:21 AM
Pretty similar, so maybe decide depending on budget. From the ones I have tried, tastewise -
xtend lemonade > xtend watermelon > excell strawberry > xtend grape.
If you are looking for an EAA product, I would highly recommend Purple Wraath.

Says 2 scoops pre/during (I'm under 160lbs) then 2 after. So that's ONLY on training days?
06-05-2007, 11:58 AM
I would recommend either Bulk BCAAs (wow, Nutraplanet sure has a great price on these...imagine that) flavoured with Crystal Light, or going with an Xtend-type supp, with added Bulk Leucine.
Sip on this while working out.
You might also look into mixing up a batch of your favourite BCAA product and leaving it next to your bed at night. If you wake up for any reason, chug a few gulps to support anabolic recovery.

I was at Vitamin Shoppe today so grabbed some Xtend to try. Will tonight.(Watermelon) I was going to be ordering some Excell though. Anyone have the Mango? The only bad thing is that Xtend was the little one. I have to do 6 scoops to my bodyweight...instead i'll be doing 5 pre/during and 3 post, then later 5. I need to buy alot of BCAAs due to bodyweight i guess.
06-05-2007, 06:14 PM
I would say head over to tp.com and cusomize your own blend. They have a bunch of additives(many of which you can't find in pre made mixes) and the blend I made came out to be cheaper (about 5-10 bucks) than any of the other premade powders.
06-05-2007, 06:21 PM
My point man. I was figuring 30 servings then saw you should take it pre/during and then another post which cuts that for me to 15 servings. so all of a sudden it's not such a cheap supplement anymore.
I just did one serving pre/during, do you guys think I should get the post one as well? And it's for train days ONLY correct?
