After a long and painful (for Jym fans) introduction, the MusclePharm Hardcore Series finally went on sale last month. With both the pre-workout Wreckage and post-workout Gainz being quite similar to Jim Stoppani's Pre Jym and Post Jym, and the protein powder Diesel featuring the same transparency as Pro Jym. The Bodybuilding.com exclusive line put the cherry on top with prices 20 cents or less cheaper than Stoppani's competing product. All the likenesses stirred up quite the battle between both MusclePharm and Jym fans, a war that still continues on to this day. Despite the unfortunate comparisons and sad similarities, there was one thing we knew right from the battle of Pre Jym vs Wreckage that was going to put MusclePharm ahead. While Stoppani's supplements do pack a little more than the Hardcore Series, the Jym line is never discounted keeping the idea of quality products at realistic prices. As for MusclePharm's BB.com items they were always destined to set themselves apart from the Jyms with specials, something they have now done. For an unknown amount of time Diesel, Wreckage and Gainz are all $5 cheaper than their regular prices. The promotion drops both Wreckage and Gainz down below $30 and Diesel quite impressively for a 4lb under $50. There is no coupon code required just add the item or items to your cart and the savings will be applied. If you're looking for a percentage for Diesel the discount is about 10% and for the others it's around 15%. While the argument is most definitely going to be made that Jim Stoppani's formulas are worth more than MusclePharm's $5 difference. We won't be surprised if the sale brings more interest to the Hardcore Series whether it be from Jym and MusclePharm followers, or even future fans trying to decide between the two exclusive lines.
Last month Black Market fans were treated to something quite special, when the brand decided to launch two Guerrilla edition AdreNOlyns as opposed to the usual one. The flavors were "DA Hulk" for both AdreNOlyn Bulk and Cuts, and pink champagne for AdrenHERlyn. For this month it is back to one, which actually sees the brand do what they did back at the start of the year. For April Black Market have resurrected yet another favorite with orange creamsicle AdreNOlyn. Unlike February's Guerrilla edition with pitch black and more like January's tiger's blood, this is the third time Black Market have produced orange creamsicle. Fans first taste of the flavor would have been back in November of 2013, then again last year in April. Despite its long history the brand have put it together again for April 2015 making it their 29th special edition AdreNOlyn, although still keeping their total amount of flavors at 23. As per usual Black Market fans will be able to get orange creamsicle AdreNOlyn in all versions Bulk, Cuts and Hers. They can also actually now purchase the latest from the underground brand through their website and expect to see the resurrected taste on retailer's shelves soon.
Something PES don't do too often but when they do you need to take notice, is put together a new supplement. The brand behind popular products such as Alphamine, Amino IV, the Stack3d Certified Select Protein and more, have now announced the coming of another with PES Shift. As they do with all their releases, the brand they haven't revealed much about the supplement outside of its name, category and when it will be available. On the topic of its category, if you're like us the title "PES Shift" may not have given you any real clues as to what type of product it actually is. The brand do tend to stick to all the main categories, which is exactly what PES Shift does although with a bit of a twist. The supplement is in fact a fat burner, however to separate it from the brand's other weight loss efforts Alphamine and Norcodrene, PES Shift is stimulant free. As mentioned outside of that the only other detail we know is when PES Shift will be going on sale. Fans may not even want to start their countdown as the product will be launching in exactly two days time on Wednesday. Like all their new supplements PES Shift will be released through the brand's insider club so make sure you're signed up if you're not already.
Of all the supplements Blackstone Labs have unveiled since the beginning of the year, there is just the one left to come. Following the brand's announcement about the coming of four new products we saw the reveal of Resurgence, EPI Cat, Cobra 6P Extreme and the protein powder Isolation. It is the last one on that last that's yet to arrive, although that is all about to change. Finally after first hearing about Blackstone Isolation way back in December of last year, it seems the brand are now ready to launch the supplement. An update straight from Blackstone Lab's themselves confirms that Isolation should be hitting their warehouse by the end of the week. From there the product will go straight out to those who have ordered stock, likely putting it on shelves sometime next week. While there is no exclusivity on the supplement, the brand have also said Natural Body Inc will be the first to get Isolation. Being a store that has always supported Blackstone that's no surprise, especially since Natural Body have had an exclusive in the past with Blackjack.
Just yesterday the formula behind Lecheek Nutrition's resurrected AMPilean Black was released, revealing a bit of a stimulant packed line up. Not only did the product feature the usual caffeine but it also confirmed di-caffeine malate, rauwolfia (alpha yohimbine) and Pikatropin. For those that have been following along, you will know Lecheek do have more than just the one AMPilean lined up. The other version is of course the female marketed fat burner AMPilean Pink, which like yesterday for AMPilean Black today we have the facts panel for you. Looking at the two formulas side by side, Lecheek have shared some features as well as kept the limit on amount of ingredients at seven for both. Borrowed from AMPilean Black, AMPilean Pink packs di-caffeine malate, dandelion root and octopamine HCl. The other four rounding out the supplement are green coffee bean, garcinia cambogia, BioPerine black pepper, and the relatively surprising feature hydrolyzed bovine collagen powder. As you can tell from the list and see in the facts panel below, Lecheek have focused on a few different things for AMPilean Pink. This is something that can also be seen in the effects each product promotes with AMPilean Black listing burn fat, intense energy and shed water. Compared to AMPilean Pink's metabolism boost, skin care and the only one similar, reduce water weight. Unfortunately we still don't have an exact date for when the AMPileans will go on sale, however we don't imagine Lecheek releasing one without the other. Based on that when ever AMPilean Pink drops you should at least be able to count on Black following soon after and vice versa.
Late last week Controlled Labs dropped a bomb on their fans confirming the coming of an entirely new pre-workout. The information on the supplement was spread so quickly we had to update our post once or twice, where we were able to upload the facts panel for the product. One of the things we over looked for Controlled Labs White Rapids was its options, which we can now confirm. While the supplement may have trouble exciting pre-workout addicts after more than 150mg of caffeine, the brand's range of tastes should have no trouble. In total Controlled Labs White Rapids is due to arrive in three flavors, two directly from its predecessor White Flood Reborn, and the other also from White Flood but with a slightly different name. The duo White Flood fans will recognize are furious fruit punch and electric lemonade. As for the third tropical pineapple, White Flood does have a taste called white pineapple which we feel is probably very similar. Lastly we have Controlled Labs White Rapids two tub sizes, the largest being the 50 serving and once again like White Flood, a trial tub packing 10 servings. Assuming nothing has changed we can still go by the brand's launch promise of two weeks from last Friday, putting the new Controlled Labs White Rapids on shelves next week or the one after.
The new supplement spree continues here in April for 4+ Nutrition, with the unveiling of yet another new product for 2015. After a number of reveals and releases of entirely new supplements, flavors as well as even a series since back in January. The Italian brand have now circled back around for one more straight forward formula. The latest from 4+ Nutrition is titled Aid+, which is the words of the brand has been designed "for athletes who are going to perform intense physical exercise". Looking at the label of 4+ Aid+ fans are in for a total of six different ingredients, all included to deliver what looks like just an overall health boost. Starting from the top we've got 1.6g of calcium pyruvate, 800mg alpha lipoic acid, 280mg n-acetylcysteine, 200mg choline bitartrate, 240mg vitamin C and 1.1mg of vitamin B1. While everything we listed is all that's in 4+ Aid+ we have also added the facts panel of the product down below for those after a more official look. As for when you can get your hands on the supplement, the brand have said Aid+ was dropped late last week so it should be hitting stores as soon as this week if not already.
