I order 99% of my supps from bb.com but there are some things I want that they don't carry, so I tried smartpowders this time. They offer 10% discounts too, and their prices are roughly the same. No free gift though, so I guess 10 bb.com t-shirts will be enough

It took 3 days for them to get my order out though, so there's that.

If you had to buy local (lower mainland) where do you usually go? I decided to check out Reflex and the rep there cut me a deal on some stuff there, where as at Popeyes, the guy there was incompetent and used lines out of a book and didn't really try to budge on the price.

I ask this because I can't really get a Pt. Bob box

bb.com ordrers shipped via economy come by Canada Post = cheap and no duty. I was happy. (I don't have the Pt Roberts option because I live in Victoria)

If you're from Surrey, check out the one on King George and 76th inside "Platinum Fitness Gym" they usually know their shit and also give you free stuff (protein bar/shake bottle) with your order.

The Reflex in Richmond is willing to change price too (not sure where you went). The Popeye's in Richmond is also good, though I've never asked him or had them offer a discount

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

Did a quick google, 5/6 of the protein in syntha 6 are derived from milk, so I guess there is a certain level of lactose in it.

If you want, I can give you a quick sample of it, I haven't opened it myself :P

Neurocore is vastly underdosed. I am liking this focus xt stuff, no ED this time. I am going to up the dose of oxiracetam next time.

Most pwos are goofy, I'll help you guys figure out the best stack. So far I have narrowed down the stuff that does help

Caffeine
Choline
Oxiracetam (will also try aniracetam)
Probably 1,3 but I never tried it myself.

What doesn't work? Check your label, and if it's not listed above, probably that seriously though, for the most part that's true. You get more from creatine and beta alanine than anything a pwo has to offer. Aside from that, the next option is steroids.

Anyone try out cytosport muscle milk protein? It's probably the best tasting post-workout shake I've ever had... Has all the essential vitamins in it too.. Check out the ingredients, its the full package..

Yes it's fucking delicious. I switched to monster milk, it has better macros for me. Tastes almost the same

So I took the time to break down a popular PWO, Assault. Here's what I came up with:

In case you are windering what the colour codes mean:

green = specified on the label
orange = educated guess, should be pretty close. Estimates based on leftover amounts in each blend, etc
red = shot in the dark guess at dosage. Estimates based on usual effective dosage in other supplements
black = who fucken knows

Spoiler!


So what does that say about Assault?

1) You are geting a lot of caffeine. 300mg of caffeine per scoop - hey you just drank 3 Red Bulls! If you were wondering why you feel 'wired' after this, it's the high caffeine content, along with a good amount of L-Tyrosine and Taurine.

2) You do get some choline which is good, and will be what causes all of the 'focused' feeling you would get from it.

3) You can skip your creatine dose for the day

4) And you only need to take half a beta alanine dose that day

5) And that's it. This is basically three diet Red Bulls with some choline, creatine, and beta alanine. Actually it's not TOO bad for $2 a scoop, since that's about what a can of Red Bull costs anyway. Everything else listed here is either dosed way too low to be useful in a PWO, or just useless completely.

Hope this helps people out a bit! It was fun to research
