Rebranded Athletix High Volume launched through PES Insider offer

Rebranded Athletix High Volume launched through PES Insider offer

Today PES have released their highly anticipated pump supplement High Volume in an Insider offer. The product most will know previously as Athletix dedicated pump pre-workout, was confirmed earlier this month to have been snatched up by the makers of Select Protein. The big question that was on everyone's mind after hearing the news, was of course what had, or would PES be changing in the fan favorite High Volume? Originally the supplement was rather straightforward with six ingredients, micronized glycerol monostearate, taurine, inositol-6-hexaphosphate, plantago major extract, and the two transparently dosed features, citrulline and agmatine sulfate. PES have indeed carried over some of those ingredients starting with their first blend which lists one less gram of citrulline, 2g of arginine nitrate, and the same classic one gram of agmatine. It is the second matrix where the most changes have been made seeing taurine first and HydroMAX glycerol second, not the other way around like in Athletix High Volume, both of which are followed by two more features AmentoMAX tamariscina extract and rutaecarpine. Another interesting difference between PES version of the original is that fans will be getting two less serving at just 18, not Athletix even 20. If you want to get in on the Insider deal check out the brand's website, where PES have High Volume at an incredible $19.99 for a full size paradise cooler tub.

Quickly get the best prices on some of the best pre-made supplement stacks at PricePlow

Quickly get the best prices on some of the best combinations with PricePlow's new stack feature

The great team over at the supplement price comparison website PricePlow, have managed to do it once again. Over the past few months the guys have made a number of now essential upgrades including a design makeover, keyword search page, and even a virtual cart for stack shopping. They've now put together something special for us and our readers, with a Best of Stack3d Stack. Basically it is exactly as it sounds, a combination of the best places to get our favorite formulas. Some substitutions have been made such as Unstoppable for Ritual due to the fact Unstoppable's not in the US yet. American Muscle Muscletest for Magnitropin as it's not found online easily, and Grenade for the stimulant free Omega Burn 24 so you're not going over on the stimulants. We wouldn't really recommend using all six of our top rated products, as it might be a bit overkill and not exactly dedicated to a specific goal, but the PricePlow Stack3d stack is a great place to start. The team have actually uploaded a whole page of stacks, which they are planning on adding to with a total of five at the moment including a fat burning favorite of ours, Giant's Dexamine and Thyrotwin.

Isobolic gets three new flavors while Nutrabolics Hydropure battles it out in Round 1

As Nutrabolic's protein powder Hydropure battles it out this week in round 1 of Protein Wars II, against Zero Carb Isopure and the protein replacement MAN Sport's Pure PF3.

At the moment Nutrabolics have a total of five flavors available for the product, with the classics chocolate, strawberries & cream, vanilla and banana, and the most unique one of the five cinnamon oatmeal. The additions the brand have put together are going to see Isobolic's menu moved to a total of eight introducing two more common tastes in cookies & cream and chocolate peanut butter, as well as the rarely seen natural.

Venture Bar by the colorful Controlled Labs coming January 2015


Yesterday Controlled Labs made a very sneaky, yet rather important announcement. The colorful brand unveiled a new supplement going by the name Venture Bar. To go with the preview Controlled also linked in a website venturebar.com, where you can see the teaser 'coming January 2015'. Despite the high protein snack coming from and being revealed by the one and only Controlled Labs. The bar will in fact be launched separate from the their regular range, falling under a sub brand by the same name as the supplement, Venture Bar. While we the edible product's macros have been kept facing the other, Controlled have confirmed one thing outside of the few highlights seen on Venture Bar's label. As well as being high in protein and fiber, the snack's one known flavor coconut almond delight is going to be joined by two others on release. Being that we are at most three months away from launch, it is no surprise that Controlled have not said what either of those other two tastes are. As we now look forward to more information, the build up begins to what will actually be Controlled Lab's first edible effort.

4+ Nutrition unveil their two Hydro+ flavors, going the extra mile for the traditional amaretto

4+ Nutrition unveil their two Hydro+ flavors, going the extra mile for the traditional amaretto

Just over 12 hours ago news came in from our favorite Italian company 4+ Nutrition, about the coming of two new flavors in celebration of Halloween. The duo were confirmed as additions to the brand's hydrolyzed protein powder Hydro+, almost doubling the supplement's current menu of three, chocolate, vanilla and cappuccino. 4+ have now unveiled the tastes they hinted at with a collection of nuts and cookies, naming almond milk and a flavor we have never actually seen attempted, amaretto. If the name of that second taste doesn't ring any bells, you're not alone. In classic 4+ style the brand have put together a local favorite, much like they did with Egg+ and zabaione. Traditionally amaretto is a almond flavored liqueur, created with an apricot pit and/or almond base. Being that we're not too familiar with the way things are done in Italy. We are thinking that yesterday's hint of a cookie means that Hydro+ will be getting a amaretto biscuit type taste, not the commonly referred to liqueur. What ever the recipe may be, you can't help but appreciate the effort 4+ have put in to produce essentially two very unique tastes, with amaretto showing how far the brand will go for their hometown fans.

Seasonal Body Nutrition pumpkin pie Trutein available and on sale for Halloween

Seasonal Body Nutrition pumpkin pie Trutein available and on sale for Halloween

As promised Body Nutrition's pumpkin pie Trutein is back in time for All Hallow's Eve. It was just last week that the brand confirmed the flavors return, which it has indeed done and gone on sale direct from Body's website. The brand did say the Trutein option would be hitting other retailers such as Bodybuilding.com, although for now, it is just their official store that appears to have it available. The big question we did have when news first came in on pumpkin pie's return was, how long would the seasonal taste be around for? There still doesn't appear to be an answer on that one, however through until this Sunday the Trutein flavor has been discounted. To celebrate Halloween and help get everyone in on the fun Body have temporarily dropped the price of pumpkin pie for both of it's sizes. The 2lb which usually sits at $33.95 is now $28.95, and the 4lb instead of $56.95 is $47.95. If you are a Trutein fan you may as well take advantage of the roughly 15% off sale, as even though the variant may eventually show up elsewhere those prices are pretty good.

4+ Nutrition join in on the Halloween fun teasing two monstrous new flavors for Hydro+

4+ Nutrition join in on the action teasing two monstrous new flavors for Hydro+

While they are countries away, Italy's 4+ Nutrition have decided to get in on the action for Halloween. The always well presented brand have released an image teasing a giant bucket of candy alongside a collection of nuts, and what kind of look like snickerdoodle cookies. The reason those three objects or groups of objects have been included in the picture, is because 4+ have two new flavors coming to their protein powder Hydro+. Last time we checked in with the brand's hydrolyzed whey formula it had a total of three tastes, with cappuccino being introduced at the start of the year. To help break down 4+ Nutrition's teaser that little bit more, the brand have given the line '2 new monstrous... good flavors'. Based on that we're assuming the candy has only been included due to the time of year, leaving the nuts and cookies as hints for the two recipes. All is most likely to be revealed very soon, as Halloween is just a day away and 4+ are a number of hours ahead of us.

Third Olympus Labs supplement confirmed as stimulant free Demigod Conqu3r

Third Olympus Labs supplement confirmed as stimulant free Demigod Conqu3r

Last week we got word from Olympus Labs that they had three new supplements on the way. One was the creatine formula Vital1ty that was unveiled and detailed last Friday, and the other Conqu3r Demigod Edition, a reformulated version of the brand's pre-workout. Today we have the third and final product and no we unfortunately have not left the best for last, with a stimulant free variant of the sequel supplement Demigod Conqu3r. Basically the formula is true to it's title, leaving out it's bottom two stimulants, 200mg of caffeine and 40mg of higenamine. Outside of that there are just two other minor changes. The amentoflavone dosed at 500mg in the regular Demigod Conqu3r has been bumped up to 600mg, with the BioPerine getting halved from 10mg down to 5. Every other ingredient and it's dose have been kept the same right from the 6g of citrulline malate all the way to the 250mg of Alpha GPC. Like Vital1ty and Demigod Conqu3r, the stimulantless pre-workout is set to go on sale next month with a launch expected as early as next week.
