Hoooooge shout outs & special thanks go out once again to Brandon Sojka, as well as SR Myokem reps Clippy & Hulkish.

Coming off my most recent meet, I was a little disappointed with how much I let my weight get out of hand. Even though I was able to PR in every lift (all-time & meet PRs), I managed...

The cheesecake desserts pictured on these wrappers make you think you are about to cheat on your diet resulting in the need for additional cardio to assuage your guilt. However, looking at the solid ingredient profile on the back of the wrapper proves that this couldn’t be further from the truth....

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...

Greetings and good morrow to all. I was recently running a high-protein, low-calorie diet and happened upon these lovely little gems in a Giant food store. Quite simply, they were the cheapest and highest in protein of all the to-go shakes on the shelf, so I figured I would pick some up (this is including...

Wonderful site.

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)

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)

Read some of the reviews on this product; it seems like a top-notch whey product. If I wasn't lactose intolerant, this is the protein I'd take. It's not overly processed like some (e.g. Isopure), which means the protein content is not as denatured. Try it brah.

It's a great choice for a whey blend - mid range concentrate plus a top notch isolate and no fillers or added garbage except flavoring and thickener.
Price is nice and the taste fantastic. Only place where it suffers is it's a bit low in total protein %.

There's also Cellucor Cor Performance Whey that is practically identical to Machine Whey and equally awesome in flavor - bb.com is having a buy 2 get one free sale on their 2lb jugs. So for like $6.00 extra you can get an extra lb and 3 different flavors.

You can't go wrong with either one - I've seen Marc recommend the Cellucor when his was out of stock.
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.
