Ok, due to the miracle of close dating products, I picked up a tub of this stuff for 8 bucks. Just finished it up, heres the review:

a pre note: Alot of people are either reviewing the amp wheybolic 60 or amp 100 percent whey. This is a completely different product in itself, just fyi.

Ingredient profile: Lots and lots of leucine, this stuff actually has an 8:1:1 ratio in it which surprised me, I dunno if it was intentional or not, but it actually made this product alot better then it could have been. A little too many carbs for my liking, but I can deal, just have to...

Taste/mixability: I got the strawberry flavor. If taste is a big concern of yours, buy another product, i did get this because it was close dated, not because it was my choice. It mixed fine for me as well.


Effectiveness: This stuff was pretty decent, that 8:1:1 ratio definately helped with recovery. Definitely made me denser. Endurance and strength went up a little. Nothing compared to modern BCAA but still pretty nice.



Value: Its expensive unless you get it close dated and have a discount like me.



All in all, if your strapped for cash and can get it on sale, it wont be THAT disappointing. Other than that, maybe this product is not for you.

I'll do my best to write a review on this product because there really isn't much to say.

Effectiveness: It worked decent I guess, I used it at school to just get good protein in throughout the day. I take a shake every day at school (along with my food I bring) and whenever I finish a different type of protein I always buy a different one to see which ones I like and work well as far as keeping me full and the taste. So with that being said this actually did keep me nice and full but I think the fat content in it kind of attributed to that so it wasn't necessarily a "good...

I take a shake every day at school (along with my food I bring) and whenever I finish a different type of protein I always buy a different one to see which ones I like and work well as far as keeping me full and the taste. So with that being said this actually did keep me nice and full but I think the fat content in it kind of attributed to that so it wasn't necessarily a "good full" in my opinion. I beileve it had about 3 grams of fat per serving which was only 20 grams of protein so not real lean. But per serving it had 22.5 grams of aminos with 4.5 grams of Leucine and 3.5 grams of Glutamine so I guess that was one of the few upsides, the other upside was tatse.

Taste: Now this was without a doubt the best part of this protein. The chocolate flavor with water was great! And I'm typically very very picky when it comes to chocolate or vanilla flavored proteins and usually I have to use milk to make it taste decent, but with this it tasted great! It went down very smooth and left no funky after taste like some others have done to me. Also I wasn't burping the flavor later on in the day.

Mixability: Mixing was odd, because I always used a blender bottle with 12 ounces of water each time but sometimes it just refused to mix and other times it just took a few quick shakes and it was perfect. So mixing was kind of hit and miss, and if I tried to drink it without fully mixing I would gag.

Value: I got 2 bags each with 12 servings and I bought one got the 2nd one 40% off so value was decent 24 servings for 31 bucks I believe. But with the other proteins I've purchased I certainly won't be buying this again.

Bottom line: I know this isn't a great review but this wasn't a great product and there really wasnt much I could say about this other than it tasted good.

  • Smooth

this is a mediocre protein. I would recommend. It is gnc brand and their taste just isn't up to par with other proteins.

One thing I will credit this protein for is how well it mixes. It literally disolves in milk no problem.

Gains: I don't know how to gauge protein in regards to gains, I never see a difference so I go for bcaa content and taste when it comes to whey, this is lacking...

Overall: decent product but I would recommend some better proteins out there.

Goodness gracious. What a god aweful smell this has to it. I bought it because i ran out of MyoFusion and needed some protein to get me through the week. I went to GNC they gave it to me for $17.99 for 24 servings. Don't think I'll ever go into another GNC store b/c they suck. The vanilla flavor taste an smell is comparable to horse shiit. Even more than that it's laggin in the protein...

I went to GNC they gave it to me for $17.99 for 24 servings. Don't think I'll ever go into another GNC store b/c they suck. The vanilla flavor taste an smell is comparable to horse shiit. Even more than that it's laggin in the protein department w/ only 20 g per serv. It claims to have Leucine and Glutamine. I didn't notice any improved recovery though. More important than taste is results and efectiveness. I didn't notice any increased muscle, recovery, muscle hardness. I have to say GNC has 2 good products being GNC AMP XXX and GNC Wheyabolic Extreme. Spend a little more for one of those if you like GNC depending on your goals.

Ive tried a couple of other whey proteins before and this supplement is definetly up there because of its results, but the most expensive out of all. i definetly love the taste of chocolate and although it was a little thicker, its taste made it taste like a milkshake. i definetly recomend this to you guys, just try to get it on sale.
