    If you like Pina colada... Or orange juice while you train


    Big thanks to NebinAK and the SciVation gang for hooking me up with not 1 but 2-90 serving tubs of X-Tend (Tropic Thunder and Italian Blood Orange). So what is X-Tend? It is a Intraworkout powder that utilizes 7gs of BCAA to help aid recovery and build muscle during workouts (https://www.bodybuilding.com/store/s...kuId=SV2500642)
    Here's a quick peak at the label:

    2:1 ratio of Leucine to Isoleuicine and Valine which is good. Some extra goodies with glutamine and electrolyte blend.

    Blood orange flavor:

    This was one I was excited to try due to all the praise it's gotten from alot of good bros on here. When I popped the bottle open, it smelled like orange juice. I then mixed a scoop with my ½ gallon jug (the amount in the pic was to illustrate the color since my half gallon jug is stainless steel so would have been hard to see inside). Even in a half gallon, 1 scoop still held its own flavor wise. Tasted like fresh squeezed orange juice. Was very delicious to drink for my 4 am sessions. Flavor 10/10

    Tropic Thunder:

    When I opened the tub on this flavor, a pineapple aroma hit my nose which was a pleasant scent. I tried this one in a ½ gallon as well but I first tried it in 10 oz. It was a delicious pineapple taste. It tasted like a Pina colada to me. Also was delicious to drink for me morning sessions. Flavor 10/10

    As for the recovery aspect, it would be hard to gauge that at the moment because I'm in a lean bulk with a caloric surplus plus I'm only doing cardio once a week (I am lifting 5 days a week). However with the two flavors tasting good, it does allow me to drink alot more water for my 4am fasted sessions so that's a plus for me.

    Final thoughts:
    If your someone that uses BCAAs or an Intraworkout, I would certainly recommend Blood Orange and Tropic Thunder flavors of XTend. Both flavors are spot on! Blood Orange tasted exactly like one and Tropic Thunder tasted like a Pina colada. Price is $24.99 for 30 servings and $59.99 for the 90 serving which are both fairly priced. Would buy again for both flavors! Thanks again to NebInAK and I the SciVation team for the opportunity to try out both flavors.

    Tropic Thunder you said taste like pina colada sounds like an electrifying flavor.

    Only thing missing was the umbrella hanging out the drink. Definitely try it out (along with Italian Blood orange)

    Good review. Got a chuckle out of the title, I remember that song well.

    I wondered if Tropic Thunder was a straight pineapple flavor. From your comments, sounds like its a pineapple/coconut flavor.
