    -10g of Aminos and Hydration Compounds per Scoop
    -5g 3:1:1 BCAAs per scoop
    -Includes Concentrated 3x LeucineTM, a combination of Micronized L-Leucine, Leucine Nitrate and Leucine Peptides
    -5g Aminos and Hydration Compounds per scoop
    -Glutamine, Citrulline addtl. premium Aminos

    -Alpha-Hydration Formula 2500mg

    Alpha Amino has a 3:1:1 ratio. As far as I have read, any product with a higher ratio of leucine does not provide any added benefits. It also makes it harder to flavor the product and mixability sucks with the higher ratio. It has leucine nitrates and peptides which is a plus. The hydration complex makes this product versatile and can be used for any athlete. The only complaint about the profile I have is the blends are not fully disclosed, other than that, it would be perfect. I just have a thing against blends. 9/10

    Mixability

    For both samples, I used 20 oz of water. The mixability was perfect, no extra leucine particles floating around. No clumps either and this was without the wire ball in my shaker. 10/10

    Taste

    Lemon Lime was just like one of those yellow generic lollipops one gets as a kid at the bank or doctor. You know, the one where there is just a see through wrapper with nothing on it. More lemon than lime. 9/10

    Recovery

    It is hard to rate this after only two servings, so I am not going to give it a rating. However, my DOMS are where they would normally be. I use BCAA's for all my workouts, so it is unchanged as to the other product I was using prior.

    Overall

    Alpha Amino is a pretty good value for what one gets in the product. The taste is great, there are no particles, and the profile is solid. 9/10

    Sleep is probably the most underrated part to this game! I hate going over 2 minutes. I start getting really bored lol. When I had a training partner, it was cool cause we could talk and catch up, but solo it blows!

    This is also my first tun of -Epi, I'm curious to see if it lives up to the hype.

    I think that straight sets are harder than pyramiding whether it is strength based training or hypertrophy.

    Lower Power


    Overall, I did a lot less sets than I would normally do on my power leg days, however, this was very tough. I was spent by the end. One thing I noticed was the little ache in the back of my knee was there slightly on a few reps of squats. It did not bother me on Roman Deadlifts, but once I did lying leg curls, I could feel the tightness. Probably due to my leg being almost locked out. It did not hurt, but was there. I did not feel anything yesterday so I thought I was good to go. I don't see this as a set back though, I'll be fine.

    My triceps are still a little sore, surprisingly, from Thursday, hopefully they do not get in the way tomorrow.

    So I got a lot of samples in the past two days, so be on the lookout for a lot of reviews. I still have plenty of samples from my old stash to try as well. I have a doctor's appointment on Tuesday, I will keep you updated with that.


    Training

    Back Squat 2-3 min rest

    215x5x5x5
    220x5,6*

    This week calls for 5x5 with the last set being AMRAP. I originally wrote I was going to do my sets at 205 pounds, but decided to go with 215. After the third set, I pictured Boone being next to me saying stop being a little girl and go a little heavier. I went with 220 and it proved to be a good weight since I didn't kill the last set with a bunch of reps. I would have done 225 if I was resting 3-5 minutes.

    Roman Deadlift 60-90 sec rest

    235x5,5
    240x6*

    This week calls for 3 sets of 5 with the last set being AMRAP. Went heavier due to the same mindset on the squats. I perform these dead on the ground. I make sure I keep my lower back flat with the ground and pull the weight up. I keep a slight bend in my knees.

    Leg Extensions 60 - 90 sec rest

    160x8,7,7

    Lying Leg Curl 60 - 90 sec rest

    90x8
    95x6,6

    Seated Calf Machine 45 - 60 sec rest

    135x8,8,8
    140x6,6

    Standing Calf 45 - 60 sec rest

    230x7
    215x7,6,6,6

    Went lighter because I did not think I could get quality reps at 230

  8. AntM Reviews BPI Iso HD Vanilla Cookie

    First, I would like to say thank you to @TheFugitive for sending me a copious amount of samples and allowing me to review them. I also want to apologize for not having a picture, I took one, but do not know why it didn't save.

    Taste - Vanilla Cookie i not all that descriptive. I would say this tasted more like a vanilla cream more than a vanilla cookie. It was a very heavy tasting flavor. There was also a slight odd after taste, was it bad, no, but it wasn't mind blowing either. If I had to compare it to something, imagine take the cream from a cream puff and just eat that, without the pastry.8/10

    Profile - Very good. One scoop is 32g and provides 120 cals, 25g of protein, 2 grams of carbs and 1 gram of fat. It also does not contain any taurine/glycine. Anyone can fit this powder into their daily diet. 10/10

    Mixability - Perfect. I do not drink shakes. I bake with protein or in this case, for a test/review, combine the powder with non fat plain Greek yogurt and make a pudding. The mixability this way was perfect. Not clumps when just mixing it with a spoon and the powder did not stick to the sides of the bowl. A little thicker than I thought it would mix, but to me, the thicker the better. 10/10

    Overall - I would highly suggest this product to anyone looking for an isolate powder. Are isolate powders necessary, not really, however, if one is lactose intolerant, I would definitely give this a shot. The name of the flavor is open to interpretation. I was expecting something light, almost like a vanilla waffer. The taste, to me, is more like a heavy vanilla cream. There is a slight odd after taste, but it is barely noticeable. One suggestion I would make to make the flavor true to its name is to add real vanilla cookie pieces. I think that would give it some texture and more of a vanilla cookie presence. 9/10

    Taste - So I had a sample of the lemon and decided to try it out. The lemon flavor was very subtle and had absolutely no sweetness, I was expecting it to be sweet. However, it tasted like really watered down lemonade. 5/10

    Price - A tub of 125 servings can be found for $40-$45. That is a very good value. However, just know, you are only get BCAA, there are no additives. It is just flavored bulk BCAA essentially. But the price is on point. 10/10

    Profile - 6 grams of BCAA per serving, not bad at all for the price, but it is a 4:1:1 ratio which makes the mixability a little off as you can see in my picture. Due to the leucine, there were many particles floating at the top of my shaker. 8/10

    Overall - If you are in the market for bulk BCAA, then this is an option. However, do not expect a product that is flavored well. I would rather buy bulk BCAA and add my own flavor packet or drops to flavor it. 7/10

    AntM Reviews Stimholic

Size:  174.8 KB

    Taste - I had the red apple flavor. The flavor was very flat. It was not bad, but it wasn't red apple. To make it more like a red apple, there needed to be more tartness/sweetness. It was not bad, but I didn't feel a refreshing feeling while drinking it that I would get from an apple. 7/10

    Focus - Focus was top notch. I would say just under the range of tunnel vision like. I was able to focus on my training session without a problem.. 9/10

    Energy - One serving, one scoop, gave me enough of a kick to get through my training session. I would not call it "stimholic energy" but it was subtle and I did not crash after at any point.8/10

    Overall - The flavor does not live up to the name, but it is a pre workout product. That being said, I would much rather have a product that delivers results than has an amazing taste. Pre workouts are only consumed to aid me in my training session, I do not look for enjoyment out of the flavors as I do in protein powders. The name is a little misleading. At one scoop, there is enough energy and focus, but nothing off the chart. I was expecting one serving to give me the same energy and focus that most products do at two servings. However, I felt as though it affected me the same way most other products do at one scoop, maybe one and a quarter. It is still a solid product though. 8/10

  9. Nice reviews! I was pretty excited about the vanilla cookie but know I might leave it for later ha.

    Glad I managed to help motivate you through telepathy just remember, every week you should try to bump the weight or the reps. Strength days are all about progression.

  10. AntM Reviews BPI Best Protein Chocolate Fudge

    Attachment 120577

    I must say, I was really disappointed with this flavor. A better name would have been chocolate or milk chocolate. When I think of a chocolate brownie, especially with the picture on the label, I think of something thick, rich, and decadent. This was the complete opposite. It was just like a regular milk chocolate with nothing special about it. It was not sweet, bitter, or anything of the sort. This flavor pretty much fell flat on its face in my opinion. Yes, I did use Plain Fat Free Greek Yogurt, but I always have my protein like this and I used the same amount of yogurt I normally do. So it was overpowered by the yogurt.

    Push Hypertrophy


    Weight - 146

    Weighed in lighter than last week by .6 pounds. I am going to increase cals by 50 on high carb days, in the form of carbs. My cal total for those days will not be 2600.

    Despite the decrease in weight, my strength is better, as you will see by my numbers today compared to last week. I look a lot leaner too. This stack so far is pretty good, here are my findings one week in. Hunger is a little higher than normal, I look leaner, strength seems to be going up, sleep is amazing, and libido is really high.


    Training

    This week calls for 7x6 with the last set being AMRAP.

  12. AntM Reviews BPI Best BCAA

Views: 195
Size:  137.3 KB

    Taste - So I had a sample of the Grape flavor. It was perfect, it tasted like a grape flavor lollipop. It was not overly sweet and the taste was strong, even in 24 ounces of water. 10/10

    Price - I have seen it for around $23 for 30 servings. This seems pricey, and it is for only 5 grams of BCAA, but I will address this in the next section. 6/10

    Profile - 5 grams of BCAA per serving and a CLA Matrix for fat loss highlight Best BCAA. Honestly, I do not by the fat loss properties and think the product could do without this. Also, the price is high because Best BCAA uses "OLIGOPEPTIDES" which is "The oligiopeptide-based branched chain amino acids may act as a better transport vehicle, allowing for more efficient metabolization, greater bio-activity, enhanced onset time, and a generally improved BCAA model. And, the scientific minds at BPI Sports didn't stop here ..." and then the ad talks about how new scientific research has shown this model is the best, etc. However, there are no references to these scientific findings. Maybe I'm being over critical here, but if a product is going to state scientific research, it should be referenced. Personally, I do not buy into this, maybe someone has literature that will change my mind. Just talking into account the profile minus this new BCAA model, it is average. 7/10

    Overall - The one flavor I had was spectacular. there are absolutely no complaints there. However, I think the product is oerpriced for what is in it. If the product was cheaper, then I would recommend it. Maybe if I see something more concrete about this new BCAA model, my mind would change. Also, I do not think the CLA matrix is needed. 7/10

    When I first opened the packet, I was given the sweet smell of bananas. The smell was great, it was an aroma just like bananas that are just about to go brown, when they really give off that banana scent. I mixed it again with plain fat free Greek yogurt. Upon tasting it, I was given a nice banana flavor. A little weak for my liking, but it was noticeable. After I ingested it though, there was a pretty noticeable artificial after taste. This has been consistent with the three samples I have tried so far. Once again, disappointing. The banana flavoring is good, but the after taste absolutely killed it. I do not know if all of the flavors are like this if mixed with Greek yogurt, which would be odd. I have never had this problem with so many powders before. Maybe it is something BPI does with the flavoring that does not agree with Greek yogurt. We will see how the Vanilla Swirl is. I also have the Cutler Total Protein left too.

  13. Was looking forward to the banana too.. Very bummed in the bpi proteins so far. The flavored pre's/bcaas/etc were amazing but the pro's flat suck.

  14. I woke up early this morning for whatever reason. I don't feel tired, so I guess even though I only got 7 hours of sleep, it was enough.

    Anyways, decided to take two pictures of my quad since I had a little vascularity upon waking and after a low carb day. First has a flash, second does not and shows the vascularity better.

    Pull Power


    Faxed my application and other materials in for that state teaching job. I found out that the woman that will be training me for the summer school position works in the human resources office where I faxed everything to. I have to butter her up when I see her next Monday! I decided to take my car in since I heard some noise from the rear brakes. There goes $320, but better to get it done now than wait for it to be 10 other things. Training went very well today. Weight and or reps increased on everything. I was surprised how smooth deadlifts went since my legs were still a little sore yesterday! Also got another sample pack in the mail, this one from ALLMAX. Be on the lookout for those reviews.

    Training

    Deadlift 2-3 min rest

    285x4x4x4x4x4,6*

    This week calls for 6x4 with the last set being AMRAP. I was only going to do 275, but felt a little daring.

    Weighted Wide Grip Pullups 60 - 90 sec rest

    10x3,3,3,3,4*

    This week calls for 5 sets of 3 with the last set being AMRAP.

    V Attachment Cable Row 60 - 90 sec rest

    120x8,7,7

    V Attachment Lat Pulldown 60 - 90 sec rest

    120x7,7,6

    Machine Row 60 - 90 sec rest

    105x7,6,6

    This is a seated chest supported machine with several different handles. I used a regular overhand grip, about shoulder width.

    AntM Reviews BPI Vanilla Caramel Whey HD

    Attachment 120646

    I had a sample of this lying around from a previous order and decided to give it a go. If you're looking for a heavy caramel taste, you will not get that, but there are hints of it. It mixed thick and immediately reminded me on one thing; eating vanilla cake frosting right out of the container. Yes, when it was that thick it had that exact taste. Whey HD can be great as a frosting for baked items. It is a solid powder and I did not have an artificial after taste. It also tasted more true to the name f the product, although, barely. I would give this is shot.

    Legs Hypertrophy


    I will have an interview at the Vitamin Shoppe next week some time. I told the GM how I wouldn't be able to start until August since I am doing summer school and working at BJ's still. Apparently, the lady I would be replacing is transferring to a store in Florida since that is where she is moving, but she won't be leaving until the beginning of August. That works out perfectly. Ideally, I would have a full time teaching job for September and would begin the third week in August, but it would be nice to have the two jobs for the two or three weeks prior. Again, this is if I get a full time teaching job.

    Applied to two more school districts in my state today. There is a third, however, their direct site does not say they have a social studies opening, but the site where the districts post openings does. I'm also going to start applying for substitute positions as a fall back. I am going to look for normal full time jobs as well, just in case. I would much rather sub though since I would be gaining experience.

    My hips, lower back, and glutes were so sore today, but I still pushed through. All lifts either went up in weight, reps, or both.

    Pointless to look at everything, since it is above. This was the watermelon flavor. It was a nice light flavor, barely any sweetness to it. This was probably because it was a half serving. Even at a full serving, I think this flavor would be more refreshing and light than sweet. It tasted like a generic watermelon, nothing more or less.

  19. AntM Reviews BPI Best Protein Vanilla Swirl

    The aroma was a light vanilla. However, when I tried it for my first tasting, I had the same experience as the others in this thread concerning the Vanilla Swirl. It was almost flavorless. I love vanilla, it is my favorite generic flavor, but this would be at the very bottom of all the vanilla protein powders I have tried. Very disappointed overall with this flavor and the line as a whole. Out of the BPI flavors, I would go

    vanilla cookie>banana>vanilla swirl>chocolate fudge. I am trying the Cutler protein on Thursday, I think.

  21. yea a lot of my AT/Kinesiology courses say not to do it.. however if you do them, do not *******, or really even com close to locking out,keep your leg bent at like a 150 degree angle but keep constant tension don't let the weights hit the rack and point yoru toes either inward or outward. actually does wonders for the lateralis and medalis of the quad ive found

    jelly of that vascularity ant... soon Ill be there. at least im hoping so. I remember a time I had a few quad/calf veins poppin out at 200lbs

    I love them. I will never stop doing them. Just like @iThrow stated, do not lock out. Any leg exercise can be a knee killer if you're locking out with a load on them. Also, make sure you control the load.
