    Xtend how many scoops do you use


    How many scoops do you use. I am currently using 4 to 5 scoops during my workout. I am about 195 10% bodyfat. I am interested in finding out how much others take and in relation to their weight and estimated bodyfat. I am not cutting or bulking.

    I like the "electric orange" idea. I'm going to have to try that when I buy some Xtend.

    None yet. I have tried the watermelon though. Never taken it regularly. Still have a giant bottle of pills left.

    Every evening, I take a 32oz Nagalene bottle, fill it to the 30oz mark and place it upon a digital scale and zero it out. I take some Xtend (I use orange flavor), and add until the scale registers 30g. I then zero the scale out again and take Beta Alanine and add until the scale reads 10g. Zero out again, and add SuperCarb until the scale registers 30g. I put this in the fridge and drink throughout the day the next day. On training days, I'll drink one of these over the course of either of my training sessions. I am going to add in some bulk NP BCAAs to up the BCAA's I get everyday from 30g to 40-50g. The flavor is sweet so adding some unflavored BCAAs will not make a difference as this mixture tastes of an orange soda without the carbonation. It is a good replacement for those who drink soda daily.

    I mixed the grape and apple together and it was pretty good. I am going to be experimenting this week since I got my order last week.

    BTW, I use 4 scoops with 5g of bulk BCAA and 5g of extra Leucine along with 5g BA. I mix that in a shaker with 24 oz of water, drink half, add in 25g SuperCarb, refill to 24 oz, and drink the rest while training.

    I have watermelon, grape, orange, and lemon and mix all the time. Best combo is DEFINITELY orange/lemon. It makes like a citrus punch. I also mix grape and watermelon because I dont really care too much for either flavor, but theyre a bit better together.

    I do 2 scoops before morning cardio, and 6 scoops while i'm lifting. I kill about 3/4 during my lift, and the remaining 1/4 while i'm walking to the cardio room.

    6'8, 293, probably 18%bf (currently cutting)

    sure thing!

    right now while cutting, i just do something like this:
    8am 2 scoops xtend
    9am 8oz (after cooking) grilled chicken, 1c brown rice, 1 egg
    12pm 10oz (before cooking) 95% lean ground beef, 6oz yam with spray butter and splenda
    3pm 2 scoops WPI and 1/3 of a serving of TrueMass (love the flavors)
    4pm gym... 6 scoops xtend.... then cardio after lifting
    530pm 8oz grilled chicken, 1c brown rice, 1 egg, 1c broccoli
    8pm 8oz grilled chicken, 6oz yam with spray butter/splenda
    11pm 70g MPI and 1/3 serving truemass before bed

    i'm trying to keep my carbs moderate this time, because i'm on 750mg/wk cyp and 400mg/wk tren e and still want to try to get some gains out of it, while leaning up.

    but when im bulking.... bring on the buffets!
