    Hey All!!! Sorry for the delays, but I have landed a nice flu for the last couple of days.....it's exciting.

    I was able to lift Monday and Tuesday, but I woke up late both days so I had to up the intensity and cut my total time back.

    Pre-Workout: Nitraflex Blue Razz + PMP Blue Razz Stim-Free
    IntraWorkout: 1scoop EFX BCAAs (Lemonade)

    Monday:
    Yates Rows
    Seated Rows
    Pull Ups
    BB Shrugs

    Tuesday:
    Incline BB Bench
    Seated DB OHP
    DB Side Laterals


    Right off the bat, I love the flavor of this product. It honestly tastes just like country lemonade!!!

    The dosage is dead on as well - 5G at 2:1:1 should mean 2.5G Leucine, 1.25 Isoleucine, and 1.25 Valine.

    As of last night, I started keeping 1 serving of BCAAs in 6oz of water next to the bed for waking up in the middle of the night. I figured that I might as well try to be creative with this product, since most people tend to use BCAAs the same.

    I can do the BCAAs first thing in the morning but never thought of keeping it overnight by the bedside. Gotta admit it seems unique. I like my water cold and fresh, though.

    Flavoring sounds good. I am a lemonade fan as much if not more than watermelon.

    The lemonade is amazing!!!

    I never really thought about it before since I usually eat before bed, but depending on how many hours I am sleeping I like the though of it. ESPECIALLY since this product is dosed properly.

    Got a quick workout in this morning with y crazy kids waking up early haha

    Just Deadlifts.....

    365x5 for 1set then 425x5 for 3sets

    Dosed my BCAAs middle of the night as usual, and preworkout today since I didn't eat heavy before bed last night.

    Really loving the flavor. BCAAs naturally have a real bitter taste that can't be masked, but this product nailed it!

    Still really enjoying the addition of the BCAAs in the middle of the night. I feel like recovery has improved, but that could be simply because the addition of the BCAAs are bridging any gaps in my protein intake that may get missed in a day.

    Either way, the flavor is amazing and the with an appropriately dosed BCAA product there are benefits!

    Long day of meetings today, so I brought a scoop with me just in case I didn't have time to grab one of my meals.

    Ended up mixing it in with iced tea and it was awesome!!!!

    Recovery may be a little better, but I am in a slight surplus of calories by about 200-300kcals so I may notice more on a cut.

    Either way the profile and flavor if this product are on point.

    Sorry for the delays this week, I have been sick. When you have a 2 and 4 year old, being sick is a little different - I get no sympathy haha

    Really like this product. I changed up the way I am taking the BCAAs again just to see if I noticed any difference.

    Protocol
    10g Preworkout
    10g Post Workout

    I still take them between meals when necessary, but since I train fasted (upon waking) I wanted to to really focus on the peri-workout to maximize results. I started it this week so I should have an idea within a week or so of trying it out.

    I like ice cold/fresh water too, but to get around this, as I used to do this same thing, I'd mix up a sv in 1/3-1/2 the amount of required water and fill the shaker up with ice. If I wake up, it's usually pretty cold, if I don't wake up, in the morning I drink it and if I wnt it to be cold I throw in more ice cubes.

    The flavor is great isn't it. I really like it too. It's nice and tart, but not overly flavored and it tastes good mixed strong or weak.

    Agreed. The flavor on this is perfect for lemonade.

    The Strawberry Peach is my favorite flavor when it is alone, but I really like the lemon flavor when when I mix it with the Peach Mango Training ground Pre. The lemon tastes great mixed with other things.

    Sorry for the delay in my final review....

    FINAL REVIEW:
    TASTE: 10/10 - EFX nailed the flavor out of the park on this one. Some lemonade flavors pull tart, but this one tastes just like the Lemonade Crystal Light

    MIXABILITY:10/10 - No issues at all. The foam is an a good sign that the appropriate amount of leucine are present.

    RECOVERY:10/10 - I have been in a slight surplus so I can't say it is ALL because of this product, BUT I do lift with intensity first thing in the morning so being able to use this Pre and Intra has been an absolute benefit. I also think that having a shaker full next to the bed for when I wake up in the middle of night was a huge plus.

    PROFILE:10/10 - Doesn't get any better than a 2:1:1 with an appropriate dose of Leucine.

    OVERALL: 10/10 - I would recommend this product as your BCAA product of choice as it is right up there with Scivation's XTEND and a couple other competitors on the market. Especially at $.56 per serving - very competitive.
