MuscleMeds has put together a post workout drink to compete with the likes of its sister company’s product MHP Dark Matter and one of my favorite supplements, BioRythm Afterglow. I went into this trial period with an open mind and hopes of great recovery from start to finish but found that I wanted...
Upon looking at companies lifters enjoy, I keep running across Iron Legion. Their products get good reviews and are at a reasonable price considering their high quality. XI-KT caught my eye because I wanted to cut down over summer, tis the season.
I ran this at 1.5 ML a day for roughly 40 days(2 bottles)....
So my first review on this site (CATCHY, QUICK SUMMARY) as follows
Now we all know many factors play into those things above, but in comparison with other products, and after consuming a few tubs of this, I stand by my reasons. I'm not going into depth with the ingredient profile or anything fancy,...
Whats up SR? Its been awhile since Ive written a review, between work and vacations I havent had a chance to use anything effectively. Anyway I saw a few reviews for this product and since I've always had problems sleeping I figured "what the hell, its only 17.99" So i purchased a product and all I got...
To start off I am an ameuter bodybuilder and athlete and have gotten into ph's to enhance not only my physique but athletic abilities also, so give me some mercy if mess some things up.
To give a background on the product Mass drops it is combination of the two AMS supplements Decavol and 1-andro. These...
I'd like to submit a quick and simple review on this product.
My brother recently bought Iron pump and within 2 uses and making him sick both times, decided not to use it anymore.
He gave me the rest his entire tub and I used it for the last month. At first I didn't like it at all, the taste seemed...
To start with I must say, I'm a great fan of BPI's products - I would especially remark blox - a blend of silk amino acids. If you look at kinetic's profile you'll see that it has 4 grams of saa - same amount as blox, 2.5 grams of bcaa (quite a low dose to my minds, that's why I took 2 servings) and...
Hey everyone, thought I'd mix it up and try out some other type of supplements for once. When looking at Nootropic's I was initially going to try out Onnit infamous Alpha Brain. The reviews on AlphaBrain were either really good or extremely terrible so I decided to look elsewhere.
I liked this supplement pretty much. It gave good amount of energy and alertness, increased (a bit) pumps and taste was definitely on top, just to say electric punch was the best fruit punch flavor I've seen thus far. mixability was great, would give it 10. As for effectivenes energy and focus were definitely...
Upon getting to the end of the container of Rhino Revolution, I began to feel terrible after workouts. I felt as if my heart was beating out of my chest and almost as if I was coming down from drugs (don't know what that's like first-hand). I also had a friend that had the same experience without me...
Ok first off I would like to thank my Muscletech rep for the free bottle of this to try. With that being said I'll jump right into and also for those who do not know Iovate makes both muscle tech and epiq.
Profile(taken from GNC.com)-8/10
Creatine HCl 1500mg Beta-alanine (as CarnoSyn®) 1000mg...
The people are quick to respond to questions and there pre made stacks are pretty awesome. Ive had tons of great shipping times with them while deployed overseas. They are affordable as well which is huge. Not a flashy site and there not deep in protein and what not. Will continue to use them for the days to come.... (More)
Read some reviews on the site i can't answer bias for the myokem product since im a rep, but take a look around at some logs and see if it fits what you want.
alphamine is also a solid product that has some rave reviews.
pretty much with the ban on ephedrine and DMAA fat burners have been hit pretty hard. take a peek at some logs and read some reviews and you will find your answers.
I didn't have a good experience with Alphamine, though it may be a really good product since most people had awesome results. So far the strongest fat burner I have tried has been Oxy ECA Black from Lecheek.
Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals actually makes a clone of OEP called Hydroxy Elite. The supplement store I work for sells it so I assume it's available online as well. So, I would assume that would be the closest thing to it.
Also, I've tried Thermanite by Genetic Edge Compounds and it's unreal as far as potency. I'd look into that as well, it's got DMAE.
I've decided to bring Creatine HCL back in my life after a long, long stretch using Creapure and most recently Kre-Alk. I weigh 240. I was thinking 4 scoops/pills preworkout and none on my "Off Days". Assuming I don't care about how long it takes to reach "saturation", does this dosing strategy seem effective?
Anyone really swear by HCL? I was impressed when I tried it 3 years ago but I wasn't very experienced with supplements at that point..
To play devil's advocate here...i'm not really a big fan of creatine HCL. It just never seemed to work for me, IMO you can't do better than micronized creatine monohydrate.
I have tried all different kinds of designer creatines, ranging creatine magnesium chelate, creatine ethyl ester all the way through creatine glycerol phosphate and creatine blends. They all are cool in their own way, and all overpriced. Some respond better than others, some are heralded as kings such as kre-alk, while others forgotten.
You just can't do better than good ol'fashioned micronized creatine monohydrate....but it doesn't hurt to try.
Creatine is only effective when you maintain saturation by taking it everyday. With that said, 3-4 pills/ scoops should be an effective dose. I also agree with kris that designer creatines are overrated and over priced. I only use creapure. 2000g of ON creapure is about $30.
I kept my answer simple but as Kris and AS79 have pointed out - creatine mono is king. However, since you've been running and using the "king of kings" - Creapure, then Creatine HCL is the a good choice to experiment with as id Creatine Nitrate. Here's a really, really good doc on creatines. (It's a bit on the techy side):
And if you do decide to go with HCL, then you can always defray a huge portion of that cost by buying it in bulk. Something like Promera ConCret is going to run almost $30 for less than 50g of HCL and Muscle Feast sells 200g for $11.99.
Thanks for the reponses, pretty much in line with what I was thinking and somewhat bummed about from a cost perspective. Promera doesn't sell Concret very cheaply at all, no larger serving size then 48 per container. Do any of you know a good place to buy this product as a bulk powder? Is there a patent issue with this? Seems like a rarity. The more I look at Nutrabio's HCL or Creafuze, the better and more cost effective these begin to look.
I'm trying to lean out, i just finished up my stack consisting of mts drop factor, core hard, and yohimbine hcl...i had pretty good results, but am now giving shred jym a try to see how they compare. would it be better to run the shred jym with an anti cortisol/anti estrogen like core hard or erase pro, or to use the shred jym with a natty test booster like mts barracuda? My goal is to continue to lose a little extra fat while maintaining as much muscle as possible. thanks.
