    These samples have far more BCAAs than I was taking before. They also have glutamine that I had run out of and I do actually feel helps with recovery. Plus all pre workouts have different effects on people.

    My post workout shake was just a WPI/WPC blend, no dextrose or post workout carbs, hence no insulin spiking. A pure WPI is going to digest better and absorb faster. Some protein powders can make people feel bloated.

    Lol diabetes. I suppose I'm going to get liver damage as well from the excess protein. Can't exceed that 63g of protein as recommended by the AIS.

    Just curious, if each serve of this product contains 6g of BCAAs, what product or under what circumstance would a serving of BCAAs be 5g or less?

    You can take as much BCCA's as you feel is necessary. I don't think there's is an international standard serving size.

    I had pure BCAAs I was adding to my pre workout. I was adding 5g a serve.

    It looks like you need to be taking at least 3g of BCAAs to have any effect. Where the maximum dose could be around 40g for an athlete around 100kg.

    What I'm getting at is 5g is a small serve.

    Normal serve of something like Xtend is 7g, so I guess you could have one of these products and get enough. Personally like to have at least 10g, not really sure why...

    Just smashed chest and tri's. True-Pre was awesome. Plenty of energy where I had very little carbs yesterday/this morning and a shite sleep last night.
    Don't feel fatigued at all after 90 mins in the gym where the usual AMP products are making me yawn an hour after consumption.

    Will definitely be using this as a staple preworkout after this pack is gone. Jury is still out on the True-Post.

    @White_Lie Thanks for the review mate, appreciate you taking the time to put this up and I think it's a fair analysis, glad to hear you're liking the True PRE and we'll take your comments on board re the POST. As I've said before it's a first production run and we'll continue to tweak it and make adjustments.

    As far as BCAA's go I think the blend is coming under a bit of unnecessary heat, There's 6g in the PRE and 6g in the POST which is a total of 12g, and if you want more you can buy our BCAA 4:1:1 and top it up with more.

    @BigMick I'm really surprised by your comments. When it comes to pricing we try and stay as competitive as possible and with a blend like this I think you're probably underestimating the costs involved. Yes you're correct that Dextrose is a cheap ingredient but everything else is pretty expensive. NZ WPI and BCAA's especially cost a lot. On top of that the cost of blending it, and using high quality ingredients like Stevia and Natural Cocoa for the flavouring all increase the final unit price. We never set out to be the cheapest and develop our range with quality in mind and developing supplements that are effective. Dextrose is included for it's use as a functional way of spiking insulin to help absorption and quickly replenishing glycogen levels, and we felt it was a core part of what people need in an all in one post workout blend.
