Supplement Review: Scivation Xtend

Since I've started preparing for Mr Kuala Lumpur 2010, I've added a BCAA & Glutamine blend to my arsenal - Scivation Xtend.

So, what about Scivation Xtend?

Just like Magnum Quattro, I've actually heard a lot about Xtend before I bought it. Xtend is actually a top selling product in USA. Let me be soooooo freakin' honest with you why they are selling so well!

Because they have a great marketing idea. But I'm not saying that it's a bad thing. Let me explain, NUS School of Business student style.

Unlike certain companies, Scivation doesn't spend tonnes of money on ads, promises everything and deliver nothing. Instead, they created a great product, then they wrote FREE e-books, promote the e-books on forums and on BodyBuilding.com and of course, recommended people to use Scivation's products.

But in particular, Scivation recommended the usage of Xtend in a certain way that really makes sense and is very practical to lots of people. And that is to


Yes, it's just THAT simple, but hey, that's really effective AND practical. And yes, that's what I'm doing now.

Why is it so effective and practical?
1. It's a drink, not capsule. And drinking something during workouts always seem more natural than taking pills.
2. It has taste.
3. All ingredients in Xtend are amino acids (not concentrates or isolates). This means that it goes straight into the body without needing to be digested. So it doesn't feel like you're eating something during your workout, like the old saying, "don't eat and exercise".
4. It has Glutamine to help recovery too!

So I would say, this is a very practical supplement.

Ok, now to results.

On the surface, Xtend gave me an awakening and refreshing effect in the gym.

Right now, I'm preparing for Mr Kuala Lumpur on 20th June. And unlike my preparation for Muscle War 2010, I didn't lose weight just as fast. I was wondering what went wrong! And it turned out to be a good thing! During my prep for Muscle War, I was losing fat AND muscle. :( But for Mr KL, my strength is increasing even on a low carb diet! I'm losing fat AND gaining muscle! :D

Oh, if you're wondering where I've heard about Xtend in the first place... I actually downloaded their e-book. :)

In conclusion, XTEND IS STAYING IN MY SUPPLEMENT STACK and never saying goodbye! And I'm not the only one. On a Malaysian bodybuilding forum, there's this guy who posted up a photo of the stacks of bottles of Scivation Xtend that he has used up. And it was so many that it covered up half of an entire wall of his room!

That's the loyalty that Scivation Xtend receives!
