RE: Scivation Xtend and P90X Recovery Formula
Hey everyone.. excuse my ignorance, but I want to get some info here.. (yes I have searched)..

I currently take the P90X Recovery Formula after each workout and wanted to know if I could take the Scivation Xtend as well??

It seems that the Scivation Xtend will help in getting me mass, if I read correctly, so I was thinkig of taking that instead of a weight gainer and take the chance of gaining fat emoticon

Is my logic correct or just WRONG???? This is where I need help...
I also take Shakeology in the morning... so I'm not sure if using the P90X Recovery Formula, Shakeology AND Scivation Xtend would be a good idea...

please let me know your thoughts..

thank you,

Allen

Allen,

I am waiting for someone to respond to this, too, so I am bumping it. I used Xtend last year when I was training for my first triathlon. I loved it and it really impacted my workouts. I was able to do more when I used it then I ever could have without it. I actually used it during my triathlon, too, to help me with the length of that event (2 hours).

I also love the P90X recovery formula although I am not currently using it either.

All I have been using is Shakeology because I am really just trying to lose body fat right now and I am not working out enough to justify the supplements, but I had planned on doing P90X in April or May once I am down a little and using the three products in combo then while I get ready for my triathlon in June.

When I was doing it before I used 1/2 the Xtend recommendation before and during my AM workout, recovery formula after it, then Shakeology 2 hours later. I was doing a second small H-I cardio workout then about 3.5 hours after my Shakeology shake.

It will be interesting to see if anyone responds with an answer and their results.

Thanks for the bump emoticon

I currently take the Recovery Drink after my workouts, then drink the Berrie Shake from the Insanity book (sooooo good) after my Recovery drink and then the Shakeology about 45 mins later... so that is basically my morning meals emoticon

What I like about XTEND is that it just has calories (if i remember correctly), so i wouldnt feel so bad adding it to my morning routine... BUT, just need to know if its going to benefit in muscle gain... or is it just like taking another Recovery Drink and not getting any benefits???

Ahhhhhhh! so many wonders!! hahahahahah

hope someone can help us out on this emoticon

I've never tried that particular supplement. Give it a crack and see if your workouts improve. If not, you're wasting your money.

Don't take it with RF. It has no calories, so I'm not sure it'll mess with absorption, but the directions indicate you don't need to take it post-workout, so you might as well not tempt fate.

It's a completely different thing from Shakeology, which is a nutritional supplement. They don't cross, so you're fine to take them all in the same day.

So are you saying to not take it with RF AFTER the workout but its OK to take it BEFORE the workout???

Just didnt quite understand if you meant not to take it AT ALL with RF or just not at the same time...

If I understood correctly, then I would take XTEND before my workout and the RF after my workout along side with my Shakeology, correct???

thanks,
Allen

I suppose you could take it before, but the instructions don't tell you to, so I don't really see the point. But if you took it before, odds are it would be absorbed before you drank the RF, so it's probably okay.

Don't take ANYTHING else with RF. Workout, drink it, give it thirty minutes to absorb, then if you want to have some Shakeology, go ahead. This FAQ might help you get the protocol a little better.
