    Default LD Reviews SAN BCAA Pro Reloaded & Fierce Domination!

    Special thanks to Poison and the SAN for sending me two samples of Blue Raspberry BCAA Pro Reloaded and 2 samples of Blue Raspberry Fierce Domination.

    Workout 1
    1 serving Fierce Domination in 16 ounces water
    Flavor
    For my palate, 16oz of water gave me a great flavor presence without it being overpowering. Unlike other blue raspberry products, this wasn’t overly tart or sweet, but rather a refreshing tropical-like blue raspberry that left my palate begging for more lol

    Mixability
    In 16oz of water and after about 10 seconds of shaking, which was probably too much lol, the product mixed perfectly. Now I didn’t let it sit to see if sediment would begin resting. I like how there was no artificial blue color, which means SAN didn’t add unnecessary fillers.

    Energy
    I had decent rest the night before so my baseline energy was pretty high. Upon entering the gym I noticed myself decreasing rest time of both warm-up and work sets, which is a good indicator of energy to me. Leg day for me involves ~200 total working reps so Fierce Domination helped me to plug away. I did start fading a bit during GHRs and HLRs however

    Focus
    Great focus during the top set of my back squats – since I’ve adjusted my squat stance in the past month or so, I really found it easy to hone in on what muscles were working during each rep. Focus also stayed high during high rep deadlifts and leg press but faded during GHRs and HLRs.

    Pumps
    Really noticed a pump in my quads after leg press and in my upper back and hammies after BBB deadlifts. Not so much of a pump after back squats, but it can be hit or miss for me in general.

    1 serving BCAA Pro Reloaded in 20 ounces of water
    Flavor
    A nearly identical flavor to Fierce Domination, which is a good thing lol. Sometimes flavoring on BCAA products is weak and you can taste the bitter BCAAs. However, 20 ounces gave me something nice and refreshing to sip on throughout my workout.

    Mixability
    Once again, no fillers so the product wasn’t artificial blue which is a plus! After the first round of mixing in my shaker bottle, the BCAAs stayed mixed quite nicely and there wasn’t sediment accumulation or foaming.

    Endurance/Recovery
    Fierce Domination gave me the slight energy boost going in to the workout, but BCAA Pro Reloaded helped to decrease my rest period between sets, keep me hydrated, and helped me to power through my high volume leg day. I felt a bit fatigued during GHRs and HLRs, but otherwise, I felt strong and plugged away throughout the entire workout.

    Thanks for checking in and stay tuned for Workout #2 with the Fierce Domination/BCAA Pro Reloaded Combo!

    Workout 2a – 1 scoop of BCAA Pro Reloaded in 20 ounces of water

    Endurance/Recovery
    I think BCAA Pro saved me intra-workout lol. Going in to the workout, I had moderately low energy levels and after a failed attempt at a barbell complex circuit, I lost all focus and energy. I decided to hit some ancillary work with high volume and the BCAAs definitely seemed to helped reduce lactic acid build-up intra workout. Also, the extra protein/calories were nice and gave me a nice boost. BCAA Pro definitely was not to blame for today’s crappy lift session.

    The flavor and mixibility were both excellent and refreshing today! Recovery between sets was decent and probably would have been better if my energy and focus levels weren't so damn low today.

    I think Fierce would've fixed the energy and focus issues, but a least BCAA Pro was there for ya!

    no doubt brother - however not really sleeping due to nasal congestion/not being able to breath probably had the most impact on energy levels

    Workout 2b – 1 serving Fierce Domination in 16 ounces water

    Energy
    I’m still fighting a cold so I slept terribly last night and tried to nap but failed. This was going to be a true test for Fierce Domination. Sure enough, the stimulant properties of San Fierce Delivered and I pulled double the prescribed reps on deadlift, hit 50 reps of squats, 30 reps of good mornings, 75 leg extensions and heavy abs. Energy and endurance was solid the entire time.

    Focus
    Focus on the top set was on-point as was my focus during the 5x10 squats. I found it a bit hard to focus on the Mind muscle connection on good mornings, but after a few sets I was able to hone in. Focus waned slightly during leg extensions (they’re boring haha). Overall, focus was solid for a leg day – no daydreaming lol

    Pump
    Sick pump in my upper back from deads, quads and glutes from squats, hammies/lower back from good mornings, and quads were swollen after leg extensions haha. Overall, great pump that wasn’t painful nor did it hinder ROM.

    Thanks again to poison and the folks at SAN Nutrition for allowing me to sample BCAA Pro Reloaded and Fierce Domination. After I finish my plethora of other pre-workouts, I will definitely be adding Fierce Domination as well as BCAA Pro Reloaded for a leucine-heavy intra-workout product.
