Pure Karbolyn has quickly become one of my favorite products. It's versatility is amazing as you can pair it with amino acids
and modern BCAA
. I also added in a few grams of Beta Alanine
. I took those pre/intra workout and took my creatine with it because it helps shuttle the nutrients into my muscles faster then just taking them with plain water. I also took this post workout and mixed it with my aftershock which was okay but wouldn't recommend it unless you pick up orange.
Pure karbolyn is derived from potatoes, rice and corn. It supposedly is absorbed through the stomach faster than malto, Dextrose
, rice, bread and pasta. Now onto the next.
Intraworkout effectiveness: I felt it the first day i tried this mixed it with mBCAA
unflavored and it masked the taste. On leg days this was perfect 1 and a half scoops 75g worked awesome to Combat
intense squats and leg presses. I was still sore but had enough energy to power through a long leg day. For upper body days i would get an intense pump almost immediately when i use this comparable to N.O. pumps. I take C-BOL
now and it gives you a pump by itself so i paired the two and my muscles felt Engorge
d through the entire workout.
Post workout: I used one scoop with aftershock at first for some extra carbs to help Spike
insulin and quickly recover. Added pump. I felt like i recovered a lot better while taking this intra and post workout it's not E-BOL
but there's a difference.
Other things i noticed: I started this at 215 and now i'm at 223. It's 200 calories so it's helping me add some more carbs into my diet. Along with my stack of C-BOL
, Hydrobuilder (recently added last week)/aftershock, and recently added up your MASS
it has helped me lean bulk over the past few weeks.
Depending on how you dose it it'll last a month i would take about 2 and a half scoops on workout days. The price is roughly about 40-$50 for a 4.4lb container. At least it's not vitargo where you can only get it for 60+ dollars. It does the same job as vitargo imo. I got more of a pump from this and it doesn't turn to sludge when mixed with a protein as when i mixed this with vanilla hydro whey it tasted awful but at least it mixed cleanly.
I'm still on board with intraworkout supplementation to ensure that my muscles are receiving the proper nutrients it needs during workouts when I'm tearing my body apart with squats deads and bench pressing. It also can be used pre cardio as many others do to give you some extra endurance and energy. I don't take pre workout
s with caffeine anymore so i can attest to this giving clean energy.
I'm keeping this as a staple because it greatly pairs with amino acids
, whey almost anything you take intra or post workout can be used in conjunction with this. I think it's best used on a bulk or lean bulk as well. Competitors can use this as their carb source pre contest loading. Also doesn't cause a bloat like maltodextrin or Dextrose
. And you actually feel this hit your muscles unlike waxy maize.
In closing i believe this product is worth the money as intra workout and post workout supplementation is important and everybody wants to build muscle and carbs are key in doing so. Karbolyn is the happy medium in between vitargo for most for me it's the same with a better price and clean mix with a pump. Pick this up and add Amino
s and everything i mentioned above and watch your performance improve.
Any questions let me know and i'll be happy to answer. Hope this helps those who are on the fence about this.
