Don’t get me wrong, I’m not posing this to be negative, I’m just curious about your thoughts and I figured it wouldn’t hurt to introduce a fun thread to the forum. Plus it wouldn’t hurt to know what to avoid: So please humor me…
What are the worst supplements that you have tried?
Please note that I’m not starting this to bash any brands or attack any companies.
Give me one (or two) examples from the following categories:
Protein Powder: Old School Cytosport Muscle Milk - Honestly I don’t think I have a good one for this. I usually do enough research on protein powder before buying to know what is good and what isn’t but if I had to pick it would be the old school Muscle Milk that I used to buy in high school. It actually tasted pretty good but it was full of junk. Maybe good for dirty bulking or hard gainers, but not for me.
Preworkout: Condemned Labs “Convict Stim” - I tried a sample of their “Convict Stim” and it is the only time I have ever thrown up at the gym. I was actually laser focus and felt very strong, but the combinations of the high stems and leg day was rough. It could have just been the leg day itself but unfortunately I now associate that pre with getting sick.
Protein Snack/Bar: ONE Plant Bar - I am a huge fan of regular One bars but they missed the mark on the plant bar I tried. I went for the banana nut bread flavor and all I could think of are those hard banana candies I had when I was a kid.
Ready To Drink Product / Energy Drink: Muscle Milk Pro Series Cookies and Cream. I picked these up on sale on Amazon a while back for a steal. I’m not sure if it is because they may be old but they have a very funny aftertaste. This stands out to me because one thing that Muscle Milk tends to do really right is flavor their products well (imho).
