    and what do you use?

    considering a few options -

    bulk leucine only (really cheap)

    bulk bcaa powder (still pretty cheap, like $20 for half a kilo, 2:1:1)

    commercial product like xtend, all-in-one, or purple wraath. more expensive but flavored and most of them contain other things as well.

    and finally, a completely custom mixture ( http://customnutritionwarehouse.com/product_info.php?products_id=1030 ) this is a cool idea, but i have no idea how i would configure it, and you have to buy a kilo.

    suggestions?

    how does it taste? i like the idea of getting something flavored so i can sip on it pre/during work out, rather than having to choke it down.

    servings are pretty big so you need a lot of water but the watermelon isnt bad
    doesnt mix all that well tho.

    i've heard it takes a long time to dissolve, and if you mix it an hour or two before you need it it'll be totally dissolved when you drink it.

    it is but only because it's only sold in a kilo. It's actually the same price as xtend. What bothers me about it though, like everything else from CL, is that it's a proprietary blend so you have no clue what you are getting.

    As pricey as it is, I love XTEND. Im going to give Purple Wrath a shot after my current tub of XTEND is done.

    got my watermelon XTEND in, and it tastes like a jolly rancher. I blended it for a few seconds and then let it sit for maybe 10 minutes before i put it in my blender bottle and left, and it was almost 100% dissolved.
