Now with all of that jazz out of the way, back to my main supplement question.

====== Cliffnotes ==================
Would I benefit more from buying Surge Workout Fuel and sipping that (1 serving) throughout a workout in order to increase my intensity and gains, and try to get a post workout meal in without a protein shake (Due to my budget being reached.) Or would I make better gains with Surge Recovery after my workout.

I'm leaning towards the Surge Workout Fuel because it seems that when you train hard with it, you will be able to get significant results. I'm not too savvy on the various ingredients, but isn't Surge Workout Fuel standalone?

Would love some opinions. Need more information or a clarification? Just ask. Thanks all.

I love Surge Workout Fuel never used it until this past month. It really does feel like you can get those extra reps and weights in for sure. I myself hate working out when its hot in the gym but last day I was sweating a lot from the heat and it didn't get to me. This stuff really works for sure!


#3

I would say:
Surge Workout Fuel but ONLY if you can follow up the PWO with a suitable shake... even if its bulk maltodextrin and some cheap unflavoured whey concentrate.

Otherwise go for the Surge Recovery on its own.


#4

So the overwhelming...majority? thinks that Surge Workout Fuel would be the way to go ?
