    I'm looking to pick up some BCAAs and something for energy pre-workout that isn't ridiculously overpriced. I also plan to pick up some Primaforce Creaform again as well. Any suggestions on what's worked really well for you?

    Shit, Xtend is more pricey than I thought it would be. You're only supposed to take 1 serving a day, right? So a large tub is a 3 month supply?

    i use 6 scoops per day, mainly because that's as much as i can tolerate mixed with the amount of water a blender bottle holds.

    The main purpose of it is to help preserve lean body mass and enhance recovery, correct?

    I'm about to pull the trigger on Primaforce - Creaform, Scviation - Xtend, and Ergopharm - Amp. Is the amp really effective for energy?

    Thanks for the heads up :bowdown: Even though the shipping is free at 1fast400 I ended up going with DPS. I'll be paying $8 more or so, but I'll be getting a 2lb thing of protein with it so it works out great.
