    "The first naturally flavoured whey product I have tried without stevia, and its pretty good. I find stevia to have an overly sweet lingering taste/texture(?) thats just disgusting, and this whey has none of that from what I can taste."

    "Good pure whey that doesnt make me bloat or spew gas. Its a bit sweeter than I like but I'll have to try other flavours. It does mix completely and consistently just using a shaker cup. Good price for a good product."

  • Product Name: Vega Sport Pre-Workout Energizer

    8.9/10 Soft alert enhancer

    Effectiveness: 9/10
    Value:8/10


    (+) Boosts Energy,Convenient,Easy To Take,First Dose Results
    (-) Taste takes getting used to, oily residue on cups after mixing

    How did you use it?: Before Exercise

    "The taste at first was shockingly tart, but by the end of the bottle I have grown to like it. It doesnt mix completely though, so the slime green coloured drink has some undissolved chunks left over on the bottom. Theres slightly oily residue on the inside of plastic mixing cups after drinking.

    With a single scoop, this has to be the most unique energy booster I have tried. Its a soft boost, that seems to take you to about 100% without any hint of jitters, shakes or withdrawal afterwards.

    This is very different than the typical high caffeine energy boost given from most products that are more like a high flying rocket boost that shakes your body and crashes to the ground a couple hours later.

    This is more like a strong steady climb to maximum altitude where it stays for a few hours and everything just works better during that time."

  • Product Name: Allmax Creatine Monohydrate

    9/10 It is what it is

    Effectiveness: 9/10
    Value:9/10


    (+) Builds Muscle,Convenient,Easy To Take,Good Value

    How did you use it?: Everyday

    "Seems to be just pure creatine, which is what I wanted. I can mix it with high glycemic drinks around workouts if needed, or just add it to a shake for regular maintenance doses. As standard creatine after the loading phase muscles feel fuller, and work capacity stays more consistent day to day than without it."

    (+) Boosts Energy,Convenient,Easy To Take,First Dose Results,Good Value
    (-) Pills are sticky

    How did you use it?: Before Bed

    "I havent done a zinc test but I may be deficient. Just one of these pills for a couple nights has a noticeable effect on the standard testosterone indicators for me, skin and hair get more oily, morning 'alertness', more energy at least for part of the day even with less sleep. I cant say if it really increases strength but I like the other effects it has for me."

    5/10 First try at using engineered workout carbs

    Effectiveness: 5/10
    Value:5/10


    (+) Boosts Energy,Convenient,Easy To Take,First Dose Results,Mixes Well,Tastes Great
    (-) Questionable actual effectiveness

    How did you use it?: Before Exercise,During Exercise

    "I tried this before; before and during; before, during and after; workouts and found before and during seems to work best. I think using just protein right after a workout and taking the sugars as energy before and during works best for me. I did enjoy the flavour over just having water at the gym, but I'm not completely sold on the effectiveness. There might be some added energy (how could there not be with all those carbs!) during the workout, but I cant say with confidence. My capacity and loading increased normally the past month while trying this product, though higher sets may of come easier."

  • Product Name: Allmax Isoflex

    7.8/10 Consistent performance from Allmax

    Effectiveness: 8/10
    Value:6/10


    (+) Builds Muscle,Convenient,Easy To Take,Mixes Well,Quickens Recovery Time,Tastes Great

    How did you use it?: After Exercise,Everyday,Before Bed,Between Meals,Every Morning

    "After 5 containers and 3 different flavours, I can confidently say the quality of Allmax Isoflex is consistent from batch to batch. I definitely like the chocolate flavour the best, and 95% of the time it mixes 100% in a shaker cup. Fast acting proteins like Isoflex seem to work best for me as an after workout protein shot for recovery, sometimes taking a couple of shakes within an hour, then having solid food. Having some Isoflex first thing in the morning with oatmeal and just with water just before bed on a hard training day seems to also help reduce soreness and improve recovery overall. The product is priced at a premium for what amounts to just good whey isolate, but getting just good isolate from the big names doesn't always happen."
