As usual, I managed to grab some freebies from Bodypower 2018, and here were my favourites:-
Bang Energy Drinks
I managed to grab around 7-10 of these, and they tasted pretty good, the flavours were:-
- Star Blast
- Cherry Blade Lemonade
- Black Cherry Vanilla
- Peach Mango
My favourite was the Black Cherry Vanilla, it tasted a bit like Dr Pepper. I usually would drink it before the gym to give me a bit of a caffeine boost prior to my workout.
Maximuscle Promax Lean Bar
These tasted pretty good, one of the best Protein bars out there. We got to try these in Bodypower and did some taste tests as they were not released by Maximuscle yet, and we got to vote for the ones we liked best.
After trying the bars and protein shakes at the Maximuscle stand they gave us some of their Protein bars as freebies, the flavours are:-
- Salted Caramel
- Cookies and Cream
- Chocolate Mint
- Peanut Butter
My favourite was the Salted Caramel
Scitec Nutrition Superhero Pre-Workout
Got given a couple of these, can’t quite remember which stand I got them from but I think they were from the Bodybuilding.com stand.
I tried one of these samples when I ran out of Pre-workout and was blown away by it, not sure whether it was a placebo effect but I managed to do a 5×5 Bench with 97.5kg (I think) which is a PB and then had enough energy to do some regular bench presses after that, and managed to bench 100kg for 4 reps which matched my current PB.
The flavour is also interesting and different, the flavour of the samples were Mango-Lime, which I quite liked and found refreshing with cold water.
TNT – Light The Fuse Pre-Workout
Again, I only tried this when I ran out of Pre-wrokout, looked in my emergency stash of supplements and found these.
Was given a few samples and found them pretty good as I had some good workouts after taking them.
