    Default True Protein PRE and POST

    Thought i'd start up a new thread for True Protein's new TRUE-PRE and TRUE-POST workout forumlas. Anyone feel free to add your reviews here as well.
    First up, big props to @JUST.BLAISE ; for throwing out the free samples. Much appreciated!

    Taste - 7/10
    Certainly not the worst pre workout I've tasted but not the best either. Good coconut flavour, couldn't really taste the apple but it's definitely sour. Not sure if it's the amino's but it did leave a somewhat unpleasant taste in my mouth. Probably bearable but I did chase it down with a cup of water. I did 25g (on the scale) and 300ml of water. Will try 400ml of water tomorrow.
    Mixability - 10/10
    Straight forward, no lumps. Nuff said
    Energy/Focus - 9/10
    One of the better pre-workouts I've had recently. Didn't feel like going to the gym today so had big expectations of the product and it delivered. Plenty of energy, focus and drive in the gym. Prefer this to the recent AMP derived products that I've been having lately. Little to no crash.
    Pump - 9/10
    Had minimal carbs the day before training so really put this thru it's paces. Delivered the goods yet again.

    Will definitely continue to use the product, it's got all the good gear and seems to deliver results for someone that is used to plenty of stims. Should get an indication of tolerance by the end of the pack (20 serves).

    Only other thing that I will say (and it was mentioned in the other thread) is the scoop size. Ideally if the serving size 25g, the scoop should be 25g. Bit hard for portion control to get an accurate half scoop everytime. I believe this will be addressed in time?

    Taste - 7/10
    Not a patch on the regular True Protein NZ WPI. Has a somewhat sour taste, which may be carry over from the processing equipment? Certainly drinkable in water, not sure it would be pleasant in milk unless the later batches remove the sourness.
    Mixability - 10/10
    Again, no lumps, nothing left stuck to the shaker.
    Value for money - 8/10
    $3.50 per serve (regular pricing) is on the expensive side but you are getting 28g of protein from WPI, 6g of BCAA, 2.5g creatine, plus Beta Alanine, Glutamine, ALCAR, Taurine.
    Seems to be a good blend of all the good gear, excellent value at the intro price of $34.90 ($2.50/serve).


    All in all, both pretty good products IMO and if you're having both, it does away with the need for a lot of products some people would probably have separately - You end up getting 28g WPI, 12g BCAA, 5g Creatine, 2g ALCAR, 2g Taurine, 3.6g Beta Alanine, 7.8g Glutamine etc.

    Been using this stuff all week. I probably won't do my review until 2 full weeks of training on it to really notice the effects. Will also give me something to do on the flight to Vietnam.

    Don't like the sound of the post workout, massive rip off of epic proportions.

    You are paying $49 per kilo yet the largest ingredient is just pure sugar!!!! You get about 80 cents worth of sugar for your $49 and you only get 392 grams of protein (about $10-14 worth depending where you buy it from), in the whole pack. 2.5 grams or creatine per serve or 35 grams in the whole pack, considering the pharmaceutical grade pure creatine retails for $19 per kilo means that the whole pack contains 28 cents worth of creatine and not even an effective dosage per serve. As a matter of fact there is more sugar in that shake that any other ingredient and not much behind a can of soft drink

    Plus it does not add up to an 80 gram serving, there are only 73 grams of ingredients listed per serve so what is the rest??

    PS I have based my cost of $49 on the fact that the review said $3.50 per serving and there are 14 servings on the pack. So 3.5 x 14=49.

    Considering that all ingredients cost a retail of about $12-15 (depending where you source them) not a bad profit margin for mixing a heap of sugar with a little protein and selling it off as a post workout shake

    What effects are you expecting?? A bit of diabetes, or a dental visit?? It's only sugar it will take a while, the rest is a bit of protein, will do nothing a piece of chicken or steak won't do.

    There will be flavouring (cocoa) in that 80g as well @Big Mick ; Not sure what else, that's off the top of my head.
    Pretty sure it's $49.90 full price on the website, like I said, on the expensive side but it is designed as a combo type deal with the True-Pre to get full doses of everything. No doubt you could do it cheaper if you bought a kilo of WPI along with everything else. You're definitely paying for the convenience factor.

    Correct…forgot about the flavouring and it's chocolate flavour, which usually takes a larger percentage.

    It's basically a mass gainer and there for should be cheaper than just pure protein not more expensive.

    Just my personal opinion obviously.

    In comparison, the same NZ WPI is $52.90 for a kilo.

    You get 1.12kg of True-Post for $49.90 but the servings are a lot bigger so less per package. Currently on sale for $34.90

    Still seems very expensive for what you get in that 1.12kg, the servings are not really any bigger they are 31 grams of pure sugar

    Still only 392 grams of protein, 32 grams of Creatine and 84 grams of BCAA's the rest is sugar in 1.12kg.

    I can see the convenience side of things but you are paying very heavily for it.
