BPI Sports has made a nice transition recently to becoming one of the best supplement companies out there. One of my favorite pre-workout supplements is their Pump-HD formula which is a true ass-kicker for your workouts. It would make sense that they also would make a new scientific discovery to revolutionize the post-workout supplements that bodybuilders and athletes crave. After all, this is one of our most important times to ingest macros and supplements.
BPI Sports’ latest breakthrough is BLOX, a post-workout recovery formula containing Silk Amino Acids (SAAs), which is a new amino acid sequence. This new sequence consists of 5 articular amino acids, L-Alanine, Glycine, L-Serine, L-Valine and L-Threonine, which are said to “markedly enhanced sports nutrition and performance parameters.”
What I can tell you about BLOX is that it works, and it works well. It definitely promotes energy after a strenous workout and helps your body to bounce back to begin repairing the muscles that we so willingly tear during each workout. Since using BLOX post-workout, I have seen a nice spike in energy that gets me through even more activities after my workouts.
I typically lift around dinner time, then consume my post-workout shake and a meal an hour later. I am also engaged in various sports at night as well as the daily ritual of chasing the kids around. I have noticed the spike in energy and recovery since starting BLOX post-workout just before my protein shake. My post-workout shake is now sans BCAAs, which I have tried intra-workout a few times. I am liking this new formula very much.
I have tried the Watermelon, Peach Tea and Fruit Punch flavors, all of which have a nice taste. For me, they are a little on the sweet side, which normally means that they are perfect for everyone else. I like things a little less sweet.
BLOX’s mix-ability is pretty good as well. It mixes fine in a cup with 6-8 ounces of water, and even better in a blender bottle.
