Have you considered this may have nothing whatsoever to do with the BCAA content of Xtend? It does have Citrulline Malate present in it also...

Yes, I consider all ingredients of any supplement I take. Again, I train fasted in the morning - so under those conditions, maybe it's been helpful. But I am not promoting Xtend nor would I recommend it just because it "MIGHT" be helpful to "MY" workouts. Just wanted to make that clear.

I've always enjoyed sipping Xtend during workout.. But apparently that was pretty useless as far as real world effects are concerned, as I wasn't training in a fasted state. Don't know if I noticed the Cit Malate or not TBH.

What's the deal with Citrulline Malate? Has that been shown to provide energy?

What's the deal with putting irrelevant questions in the wrong thread?

I personally use Xtend as my BCAA supplement and I have to say that xtend does noticeably help when I'm doing a RFL diet.
Lyle, what do you think of this? Could it be beneficial to have some BCAAs during depletion days on UD2?

So something is very weird about their results.
What if a natural jumps on a cycle of 1g testo weekly?

What part of this sentence is unclear

You still wouldn't get that much real muscle gain. With water retention maybe.
