I just recieved some WMS from trueprotein. They lowered their price. Shipping is the big drawback since they are accross the country from me. But I looked up the rate on the UPS site just to be sure they weren't overcharging me.

eric can you give us a little write up on the wms from trueprotien after you have used it a while? I am gonna need to order more soon, and I'd like to hear your thoughts before buying.

TALO's Sig:Cheap and good bulk supplements from Canada Protein

Dammit I just wrote up a thing and lost it. Oh well here it goes again .

I've only used it twice (got it three days ago) so this is just a preliminary report. I used it once for a weight workout and once for a HIIT session.

I'm a long term user of malto and dex. With the WMS I'd say the comfort in my stomach (for pre weights) was a little better. Nothing extraordinary. I've been using the same concoction for so long that I'm really used to it. But I noticed definitely that I was less sluggish at the beginning. Felt stronger and less heavy limbed at the beginning of my warmup. Overall energy levels were really no different in general, however.

I got a crash toward the end of the workout. A weak low sugar feeling. I didn't have anything but accessories left so it didn't affect me. I have a feeling that the crash is temporary. I took a relatively small amount as I'm still figuring out my tolerance but I probably just need to get used to it. If the problem continues I'll bring down some extra to drink.

For postworkout there is nothing really to report. I didn't feel it "surging into my muscles" like some people have said.

For the HIIT session it was good. I basically chugged it and went right to it. With malto and dex I would have to wait around 15 minutes. No crash for this relatively short workot. Used it for post too and everything was hunky dory.

So a little improvement in comfort and it seemed to kick in faster for sure. But overall nothing miraculous for me. But as I said it's all very preliminary.

This is the first WMS product I've used so I can't compare it to other products. It was chalky like some others have said. I'd be worred if it wasn't to chalky since it IS supposed to be corn starch . I didn't find it too unpleasant but it's not something I'd want to be sipping on during a prolonged endurance event. I got regular strawberry flavor which I don't find nasty like Sleazy does, lol.

Alright so so far I'm not blown away. If I had been comparing this to plain dextrose, which I think a lot of people do then I would be blown away. Frankly though I think it would be silly to compared it to plain dextrose which kind of sucks by itself. But in comparing it to a fairly honed pre/post formula it's so far not really that different in terms of anything I can actually put my finger on. Perhaps my glycogen is being restored at a faster rate or whatever but I have no way of measuring that.

I think it would be great for something requring prolong energy where you used it like a sports drink. But I've got plenty left so we'll see what happens. The price went down but I'm on a very limited budget. Based on what I'm seeing now I'd rather spend pennies on malto/dex and get stuff like citrulline malate. But my mind isn't closed and it's IT IS a very good choice, obviously, I wouldn't dispute that. I'm just not seeing the "night and day" difference that so many seem to. It could be that I know a little bit about making a good pre/post concoction out of what I've always used .

I've been doing this with virtago, and it has worked out well. one scoop virtago, 3-4 scoops purple Wraath is pretty awesome as my pre/durring drink.

Good look on the observations.

I recieved mine from true protein. Yesturday was my first time using this. To be honest I didn't realy notice anything. But I didn't use it as a pre I only used it as a post. And I trained my legs (if that matters) Because I didn't notice a pump or fullness like some have said. Next training day I will use it as a pre to see if I notice a longer workout session.Then I will use it as both to see what's there.

My wife also tried it yesturday (she worked her upper body) Started it with about 5 sets left in her workout and she said that by the time she was done she did feel the fullness in your arms/shoulders/chest. No bloating which was good. And she like the taste- we got the wildberry.

This is some messy shit - I believe I read that from a few guys before and it's true. Shit, I got it in a bag and trying to put it into a few containers that I had lying around...I sure made a mess of the kitchen..

I think, for pre, I'll start drinking half or so and sipping the rest during workout.
