Muscle Feast Protein Bars

Not so much a "protein bar" as a "food bar" - chock full of whole food goodness and whole food simplicity.

Overall: 9 | Effectiveness: 9 | Value: 7


As with all Muscle Feast products, the goal is to be as simple and effective as possible. This is without a doubt one of the two most pleasing supplement bars that I have ever tasted. Every bit as comparable with YouBar and superior to both ANSI and Quest in taste and texture. Is it really a protein...

I started using ActiGin 8 months ago and haven't stopped since. I've tried many different pre-workouts and have never been satisfied with how I felt during my workouts.

Well, it's an amino acid product. I don't feel any different while taking it but that's to be expected.

The first time I tried Volt I made the mistake of taking 2 servings. Usually 1-1.5 servings of a pre-workout does the trick for me depending on how the ingredients are dosed, so I'd say I have a moderate stim tolerance. About 10 minutes later I was absolutely wired. Not too surprising but it hit me much...

July 16, 2014


Greetings, SR world. Since I've made multiple purchases from SizeUpSupplements in the past few months, I figured I'm now qualified to type a review of my experiences with them. Categorical breakdown:

Selection: 10/10

I have to give this site a 10/10 in this category because they have a plethora of products available. When browsing through the online store, the following categories of products are available (this is lifted directly from the site):

Amino/BCAA Mood/Sexual Enhancer
Clothing Muscle Enhancers
Creatine PCT/Organ Shield/Cycle Support
Ephedra New Products
Gear Post Workout
Glutamine Pre Workout
Joint Support Prohormones
Protein Sale Items
Sleep Aids Stacks
Test Boost Top 10 Cutting Supplements
Top 10 Mass Gaining Supplements
Vitamins/Minerals
Weight Loss

If you take a look at each of those categories you will immediately notice that this site is more geared toward HARDCORE supplements versus some of the more softcore stuff. However, I was shocked at the diversity of the pre-workout, intra-workout and post-workout supplements available for purchase as well (notably they have over 60 pre-workout brands). However, what really stands out most prominently is their selection of prohormones, PCT, and on-cycle products. If you're into cycling on pro-hormones (which I am), this is the site for you. But as aforementioned, they actually have a surprisingly robust selection of the more "conservative" and "subtle" products as well.

Prices: 10/10

By far the best prices for prohormones I have EVER ENCOUNTERED. I would be willing to bet a significant sum that no competing online retailer can match their pro-hormone prices. Blows StrongSupplementShop out of the water, which was my previous go-to site for all of my pro-hormones and cycle support. Citing a specific example: I purchased LGI T-var 20 (90, 20 mg trenavar pills) for $29.99 from this site. Strongsupps has LGI T-var 15 (90, 15 mg trenavar pills) for $33.95. I upgraded to 20 mg pills from the 15 mg ones and paid LESS. Their softcore products also have excellent and competitive prices. Citing another specific example: BPI Sports PUMP HD (30 servings) is $22.99 on this site. BB.com sells it for $28.98, Supplement Warehouse sells it for $26.91 while GNC.com sells it to Gold Card members for $39.99 (lmao what a joke). If you can beat Supplement Warehouse on the price of ANY PRODUCT, you deserve a 10/10 in this category.

Customer Service: 10/10

I had a delay in my shipping the one time I ordered and Chase (a SizeUp representative) e-mailed me back promptly to explain the situation. A storm had hit the area and there were some minor delays in shipping, which I understand is out of their hands. He still gave me a free t-shirt with my next order to compensate for the MINOR delay that occurred (I got the product in 4 business days). Prompt and sincere return e-mails AND getting a free shirt for a shipment delay deserves a 10/10 all day.

Shipping: 8/10 (Two shipping categories: Speed and Price)

Shipping Speed: 7/10

This is the only minor flaw associated with this site, but it may just be due to my geographic location (I live in PA and their warehouse is in MI). Shipping doesn't always occur same-day and the speed isn't the greatest in the world. If you order on a Monday I would anticipate it shipping out by Tuesday and delivery occurring by Friday or Saturday. Strongsupps.com and BB.com definitely has the advantage in this category, as shipping is always same-day and delivery takes no longer than 2 business days. However, this just means you have to plan accordingly and re-stock your products in a time-efficient manner, under the assumption that you will be receiving your product in 3 or 4 days. Not THAT big of a deal and will NOT stop me from continuing to buy all of my hardcore goodies from them.

Shipping Price: 9/10

I have paid only $3.99 for shipping each time I purchased products from their site. StrongSupps has amazing shipping speeds but their prices are outrageous anymore at $9.99!! BB.com is around $6. Shipping prices are fair considering the speed.

Overall: 10 + 10 + 10 + 8 = 38/40 which is a 95% or 9.5/10. I give this site an A due their OUTSTANDING prices, courteous customer service and awesome selection. If they improved their shipping speeds I would absolutely rate them a 100% A +. I would recommend this site for sure.... (More)

The four main criteria are reviewed as follows after my two times patronage with this company.

Selection - I have to admit they do have almost what I chose and wanted because they basically acquire it from somewhere else - and this leads to the next issue:

Delivery - low rates as one may be tempted, but the delivery takes forever and the only excuse they made is that customs are giving issues. 16 days after delivery, USPS made an attempt to check for the so-called despatch info and number (trackable or otherwise), they confirmed the PRODUCT HAS NOT BEEN MAILED OUT or the series of so called tracking info is NOT in their database. When you buy an item from them, they do NOT have it in stock immediately, rather, they obtain from elsewhere and this can cause a week delay.

Customer Service - the others said it all - it's a disgrace to the fitness product industry.

Prices - somewhat competitive, especially with items which are ON RECALL or OUT OF STOCK due to failure at the pharmaceutical checks.

Overall - Try elsewhere. Their selection and cheap prices are not worth all the agony in try to make sense of their response, non-delivery and worst of all, atrocious customer service.

PS. I have to patron them twice because the product I wanted was not available at bigger companies like bodybuilding.com or A1supplements.com - and I have had it. Forget the damn product.... (More)

Animal Pump Universal Reviews

I'm also taking Kre-Alkayln EFX Pro, when should I take the kre-alkalyn?

They are both pre-workouts! They both have caffeine in them. Should I just save the kre-alkalyn? Should I take the kre-alkalyn later in the day? Should I take the Kre-alkalyn some days and the animal pump on others to avoid building tolerance? If I just save the kre-alkalyn, will I be getting enough creatine from the animal pump?

Thanks

I would use either the Animal Pump or the Kre-Alk Pro as a pwo and then the regular Kre-Alk on non training days. Animal pump has 3 g of creatine in it so it's right at the edge - I usually take 3g of creatine. But keep in mind that the Kre Alk Pro is really on the low end of stimulants so theoretically it could be combined with Animal Pump as a pwo.

Damnit - I meant to say that I normally take 5g of creatine - sorry for the typo. But like I said up above, combining the Animal Pump will boost your creatine and I don't think the added 75m of caffeine is going to put most people over the edge. But, as always, test it out first and see how they make you feel. Since the stims in Animal are in a prop blend, it's hard to say what the caffeine content is to be exact, but the forums on bb.com says 275mg of caffeine and that sounds about right, so you'd be right around 350mg plus other stim ingredients - so that should be on the strong side. Plus creatine would be around 4.2 grams which I personally think is better. Of course you could just take either Kre-Alk later in the day as well. Hope this helps.

MTS Machine Whey vs Musclemeds Carnivor

I know that Machine Whey tastes better than Carnivor but who wins between the supplement facts and what would you pick?

Carnivor is hydrolyzed beef protein isolate while Machine Whey is whey protein concentrate. Machine Whey IMO is a much more complete product, I would pick Machine Whey over Carnivor any day.

I agree with kris. Machine whey is a better option. Most people use carnivor if they are looking for a non-milk based protein. I would also recommend checking out PES protein. Great taste and profile.

Kris and AS79 make good points, but if I may add my own two cents;

I've used both and which one is better depends mainly on your preference and goals. I found carnivore to be more helpful in recovery and gains due to its creatine content and beef protein benefits. However, if you prefer a good general whey with great taste, machine whey wins.

In summary, which one you choose really depends more so on your goals.

There's a lot of stuff about Carnivor's label that should cause you to think - first off, 10g's of added filler with things like gelatin, maltodextrin, dyes, flavors, silica, etc. If you want creatine then buy it separately; it's dirt cheap. If you want the benefits of beef, then buy beef. Like AS79 said, unless you have a compelling reason to buy a beef isolate (like non dairy or paleo), there are better options out there and look to your overall diet to dictate recovery far more than any single product. Just my personal opinion.
EVP Evogen Reviews

good pre workout replacement?

there isn't much on here about evp, so i am a little worried about giving this product a try...that being said, i feel like i need to give a non stim pre workout a try because i currently am getting 200mg caffeine twice a day from my fat burner. i have been taking my usual pre workout (300mg caffeine), however i feel that i need to cut back on the stims and give my body a break. i bought evp today and plan on running it at 2 scoops.

has anyone used this product, or does anyone have any insight into it's effectiveness or it's ingredient profile?

thanks!

I was given a tub of this and didn't care too much for it. The ingredient profile is alright, nothing spectacular or anything.

The first issue is that you are taking in 500mg of caffeine a day. Now the way you word it makes it seem as if you are taking you PWO everyday. If this is the case then here is my advice - DO NOT take your PWO everyday. It is not necessary. Take your PWO on days when you are really sluggish and actually need a boost.

Otherwise you become dependent on the stimulants, and your workouts become epic fails without them. This holds even more true when you are taking in an extra 200mg from your fatburner.

There is no need for you to take a PWO that has 300mg when you are getting 200mg from your fat burner. Thats just 500mg of caffeine you are exposing your system to which does nothing but make it more tolerant to that degree of caffeine.

Take a break from it while on the thermogenic, I dont think the Evogen will help too much; since you bought it its not like it will hurt or anything.
