Progenex Review by Alex Nettey
After Regionals this year I decided to give Progenex nutritional supplement a try to see what all the fuss was about as it was a main sponsor of the Crossfit Games in 2010. I know many of Crossfit’s elite had given it their stamp of approval yet I was hesitant to give it a try for a few reasons, mainly because I felt that the tools I was using pre-post wod were effective enough for me. I got the Pro-Pack (pictured) as a gift and it contains 2 powders – the More Muscle & Recovery formulas so I had a month of servings to test them out and see what my experience would be like. I’ll spare you the science behind these 2 formulas fore the sake of brevity but if you want more info refer to the website – www.progenexusa.com.

True Nutrition Protein review by GymRat
I have been around this sport for a while and involved in supplements in one way or another for even longer and as many of you know trying to find a consistently good source for supplements at a decent price is tough.
A couple of months ago I tried out True Protein in the states. I was after a custom blend of amino acids and seeing that they had just added theri custom mix option I was keen to try it out.
My intra-workout blend is:
30% Creatine Monohydrate
15% Citrulline Malate
5% L Luecine
No secrets, just a very effective formula. I tried to find places here in Aus who could do this but needed a minimum of 100kg per flavour!
TP allowed me to mix and match and get as little as a pound of each flavour which was great so I can rotate through pretty often. They had tons of flavours so I got a selection. Ones Ive tried and liked were fruit punch, wild berry, choc mint and may fav was watermelon.
Im not sponsored by TP(in my dreams!) but have found them to be great to deal with. Shipping was a touch expensive to Aus but still worked a ton cheaper than getting the ingredients locally. The quality was great,very fine powder and tasted great.
I got almost 12 months worth for myself recently and am almost out already because all my mates are using it too now!
