It's hard to say if the advertised effects of Xtend were seen because it's designed to supply your body with BCAA's, help intra-workout and aid in recovery. I didn't notice any noticeable effects, but I'm not going to say they weren't there, because they might have been. Flavor wise, Xtend tastes good. Not great, but better than most preworkouts. My only problem came with the stench left in your water bottle if you don't wash it out soon after consumption. However, I can't really knock them for that, that's on me.

Have been trying to find the best tasting branch chain amino acids for a while now to be able to stay away from the catabolic properties of fasted cardio. this is definitely one of the better products out there. I would use two scoops (two servings) right before cardio in the morning and noticed that I didn't lose nearly as much muscle mass, looked fuller, and overall looked better while using this product. If not for the branch chains, i feel like I would have lost a lot more muscle. Like I said, I am a man who likes to enjoy drinking his products... and I DEFINITELY enjoyed drinking this product. the watermelon flavor absolutely blew my mind. It tasted like a jolly rancher! definitely recommend it if you're trying to retain muscle mass!!

Great recovery drink, especially if you are working out a lot. My wife will take it too even when's not working out as a pick me up! Taste is solid. Good product!

Watermelon flavor

This tastes just like Watermelon juice, just like Jolly Rancher Watermelon candy actually. One of the best tasting supplements I've tried overall.

I used 3 scoops, no post workout dose. At this dose, the profile is very good, BCAAs and no proprietary blend of them. I would however prefer a lesser amount of Glutamine replaced by more BCAAs (or other ingredients, but that would change the whole concept of the product)

Mixes well, but like many BCAAs does foam when mixing. One criticism is that it's hard to tell if the scoop is accurate based on label - the blend does not appear very homogenous, as some scoops appear to contain more of the 'light' powder, and some more flavor crystals.

During my cut, I did not notice more recovery (which is not really expected during a serious cut) but as far as effectiveness, I have not lost very much muscle at all, so I would assume the help of this product during my lifts/post-lifting cardio has had some benefit. The price is not outstanding, I would not buy it, but would use it again if reasonable.

Xtend was referred to me by a training partner who I hold in the highest regard wrt fitness and product knowlege. The man is n his 60s and not one of us can touch him in sprints and race finish. We are high end cyclists and speed skaters living/training in Houston meaning endurance exertion in a hot, humid climate.

I never used this type of "drink" before trying the Xtend. After one summer season, I am absolutely convinced that XTEND used during cycling and skating and long swim workouts is beneficial. Endurance and energy duration seem to be extended and thirst/hydration feel maintained during and after.

WRT other strength activities like short burst weigtlifting I cannot comment. Additionally - I am not one of these taste weenies crying about flavor ( in fact I wish artificial color and flavor would be eliminated as these chemicals have no place nor benefit in the body). I used the orange which is OK ... there is no comment either way. Taste is low priority, performance is high. Mixability in the orange is fine with little to no precipitate after solutionized. Price point(depending upon source) is excellent at Bulk Nutrition.

First off, this stuff rocks. I had the chance to try out the Watermelon and Grape flavors. This stuff is great and I prefer the Watermelon over the Grape. Anyway, the ingredient profile is simple yet effective. You take this during your workout and it keeps you moving between sets. I can't really compare it to the other intra-workouts product. I still prefer IntrAbolic, but in terms of taste Xtend wins the battle. I feel the formula could be updated and added with some new benefits. I would like to see something like beta-alanine, but having that in an intra-workout product is not always the best thing to have or is required. Overall, Xtend is good stuff, but you will be using this stuff like crazy.so make sure and conserve.

Blue Raspberry

Well, it's official. I am the last person on earth to try Xtend. I elected to go all out with the special edition Blue Raspberry flavor and I was not disappointed. I was a bit hesitant after the horrifying experience of LG's Blue Raz flavor but this was much better, a tangy but sweet flavor. Mixability was average, some clumping even after shaking. Recovery has been decent, not mind-blowing, I guess we'll have to wait and see how long it takes me to turn into a jacked animal at .5% BF.

Watermelon

Endurance and recovery were the same as the Blue Raz (no surprise there), but the Watermelon seems even clumpier and more resistant to mixing. In addition, the taste is a bit too dull, even in minimal water; it's like a Jolly Rancher that you just fished out of your used bathing suit. I'd have to say this smells much better than it tastes.

Watermelon is refreshing. BCAAS, GLUTAMINE, AND GOOD FLAVOR...can't go wrong there. Perfect for during your workout. Gives me noticeable stamina and endurance without the jitters or crash. Cheap (only about 75 cents per serving). No need to buy glutamine or bcaas while supplementing with this product =)

I have been using Scivation Xtend for a few years now, and I for a BCAA product it doesn't get much better than this! Price wise compared to Bulk BCAA is not much different depending on where you purchase Xtend. I have tried every flavor of Xtend (Apple, Orange, Lemonade, Watermelon, Grape (including the newly improved grape)), and they all taste very good! In fact I could drink this all day long, and comparing the price difference between a drink mix like cyristal light you could (very little differnce in price).

I usually take a serving first thing in the morning before doing some cardio, then I drink some intra workout. Xtend is great for preserving muscle, burning fat, and building lean muscle tissue.

i receieved a tub of this stuff a while back as a gift and enjoyed it pretty much. the watermelon flavor is enjoyable but nothing spectacular to me. the powder mixes fairly easily and if it is mixed then let to sit in a refrigerator for fifteen minutes or so the mix is pretty much perfect. this was one of the first supplements i used and always felt it gave me great focus and alertness in the gym but this may have just been a placebo like effect since i was still early in my training. scivation is a great company and the proven 2:1:1 ratio of BCAA's is found in the product as the label states. so if you are looking for a bcaa product you really cant go wrong with xtend. only downside owuld be price but isnt really that exspensive.

Xtend is an invaluable supplement to the bodybuilding/endurance training communities. When it comes to lifting heavy weights, supplementing with BCAA's intraworkout is a must. Xtend does this, and to great effect. When supplementing with Xtend I noticed faster recovery times and increased endurance, both of which I enjoyed and expected from this product.

Though it does not taste awesome, BCAA's are hard to flavor and it tasted pretty good (I had watermelon). Mixability was fine, I find it's good to let it sit for a little bit to dissolve between shaking it. As far as tolerance or safety issues, with BCAA's its not really a problem and Xtend can be used all the time.

I recommend this product to everyone who trains, as it helps in recovery and endurance whether weight training or doing cardio.

I have been looking for a bcaa powder for a while now. After doing some calculations and doing some research, I decided on Xtend. They definitely have a good formula here. Its tastes great(a tad sweet) and mixes very well. Very little residue left in the glass after a quick stir. It also blends well with almost anything else you put into it - great for making your own blends for pre, intra, or post workout. The price is also very reasonable. You may be able to find bulk bcaa for a little cheaper but you won't have the flavor system and instantized nature of Xtend. Those characteristics are definitely worth the extra bit. It helps me workout longer without hitting the wall, and also speeds my recovery. Great for cardio too.

Xtend does not serve too many purposes while bulking, but it sure can help. I personally use it as a staple for my workouts during a cutting phase. With Xtend I have been successfully cutting for the last month, I have so far dropped about 5% of my bodyfat total. I am looking better, and best of all, my strength has not declined one bit yet. Actually, it has been increasing. Of course a large chunk of this would be thanks to my diet, but from past experiences, I would lose alot of strength during a cut. Xtend has helped me keep my strength and mass.
Taste, well, what can you say? Possibly the best tasting intra-workout supplement I have used. With a variety of flavors, all of them taste amazing. No joke, I want to use it all the time.
Mixes well, no complaints there. On average, it costs about $20 for 30 servings, or $50 for 90, so in my opinion, it is quite cost efficient, and for the results I get, I will continue to use it.

This product is a great recovery enhancer. For this product I would go with the watermelon flavor it tastes great. The muscle gainage from this product is also a good benefit. While on this product my recovery is great and I feel much better. I will break down all the benefits of this product.
Taste: the taste is wonderful
Muscle repairing: My muscles repair quicker
Strength: great product for strength

I would recommend this product to everyone and since using this product I will never go back. This product has helped me gain 20 pounds on my bench press and 10 pounds to my weight. I would recommend this product to anyone because it works so great. Overall this product is 10/10!
Also I would take this product twice on workout days and once on off days if you are feeling sore, this product helps me workout like every day of the week. Go out and get it now!!! greatest recovery product ever!

This product is such a great product. This product is a product like purple wraath where it helps you recover your muscle fibers more quick. Overall this product helps me workout much more during the week and I notice that I am barely sore. I recommend that you get the watermelon flavor if you got this product, I tried the apple flavor but it didn't live up to the Xtend quality. While on this product I have not been able to get off. So far in about 3 months I gained 7 pounds and really improved my strength. The mixability of this product is also really great. Also this product has the best bcaa / eaa profile that I have ever seen. I am pretty sure that it has more then purple wraath. I was actually able to lift uppder body 5x in one week because of the fact I wasn't sore! Yes 5 times! I also recommend to take this product with a whey protein product such as on whey protein to maximize results and recovery.

Xtend is an awesome product. Simply amazing at how it affects me in the gym. I always seem to have extra energy whenever I take it, and its ingredients are supposed to prevent muscle breakdown during exercise.

I notice more vascularity than usual when using xtend, especially if I megadose it. And it helps me to drop fat while maintaining muscle, and even add a little bit of muscle sometimes.


There are only two complaints I have, and that is that watermelon flavor doesn't mix that well, but it still tastes great. The second complaint is the cost. You can buy the bulk ingredients of xtend, but prepare your tastebuds.

But all around, it is a solid product.

I love Xtend!
Last summer I tried it for the first time while cutting over a two month period. I really enjoyed it and have since purchased 5 tubs of it, all different flavors, for current and future use.
Lemonaid was my first flavor to try. At first I didn’t like the idea of drinking anything besides water while working out due to my weak stomach, but it actually went down really well and I experienced no discomfort. Since, ive tried watermelon and grape and they taste amazing as well.
Xtend has a ton of BCAAs in each serving which help fight catabolism while in a calorie restricted state. I found it gave me much more energy and the endurance needed to run longer and harder during my cut. I will never run without it now. It tastes so great that I have to stop myself from drinking it when im sitting around at home.
Overall this is an amazing product and is defiantly worth the try. It comes in large tubs and small tubs so there is no excuse for not giving it a try!

I started using scivation's xtend early on in my weightlifting career. I had a training partner who was a year older then me and told me bcaa's were a very good supplement to use, and since I didn't want to mess with creatine back then, I took BCAA instead after I learned about what it was all about. I've always stuck with the watermelon flavor. As a watermelon lover, this flavoring is perfect. It is so refreshing when it is ice cold. I could ask for nothing more. Also, it mixes well and is thin so it isn't hard to drink at all around workout time.

The cost of this supplement is very affordable. When compared with bulk bcaa's it comes pretty close. Then when you add in the fact that it's flavored and bulk bcaa's taste VERY BAD, and has l-glutamine and citrulline malate, you can't argue about the cost. Although, I do turn to Bulk BCAA when im short on cash.
