A huge thank you to the fine people over at Quality Pasta Company, the makers of  MUSCLE MAC for sending several samples of their amazing products! When I first saw their Protein Mac'n'Cheese I knew instantly that I was going to love this product.

They sent me a few of each product. The microwaveable cup, Shells and Cheese and the regular Mac'n'Cheese. The first one I tried was the Microwaveable cup. I work from home with my lovely wife ( we own 3 small business') and I am a Professional Bodybuilder and I eat every 2 hours and the Microwaveable cup was so fast and so easy to make. It was so easy to cook and prepare. It is my first choice as a "go to" product.

Convenient and wholesome meal or snack
20 grams of protein per serving
Protein fortified pasta with excellent taste
Real Cheese with no synthetic dyes, colors or flavors

Next up was the regular protein Mac'n'Cheese. These had to be cooked just like any other box of mac'n'cheese. The overall flavor was amazing and I enjoyed every single bite! The flavor is no different than KRAFT! And that says a lot in my opinion. KRAFT has been #1 for a very long time, but looks like MUSCLE MAC may give them a huge run for their money.

Performance nutrition for active lifestyles
20 grams of protein per serving
GMO free pasta with added vegetable protein
No synthetic dyes or colors

Then finally I tried the shells and cheese. I haven't had the shell version from any brand in many years. I have always been a fan of the regular noodles. But this box was full of tasty goodness! Easy to cook and prepare. Every bite was fantastic! It had a nice creamy cheese flavor that melted in my mouth!

Delicious, high protein pasta for all ages
20 grams of protein per serving
GMO free pasta with added vegetable protein
Great tasting Real Cheese with no synthetic dyes or colors

Over the years I have used MANY pre workout drinks. Some terrible, some really good but very few were PHENOMENAL. I was at the gym and the manager asked me if I wanted some samples of some pre workout mixes he had gotten in the mail. So I dug through them and one really caught my eye. WICKED by Innovative Laboratories.

I gave this product a try and man it was AMAZING! The energy was very intense, very strong and my workout was the best I've had in a while. This product had my training at 110%! I felt like I could train for hours and I didn't feel the least bit tired. Truly a phenomenal supplement. I'm currently 212lbs and I use 1 scoop and that's plenty for me. I STRONGLY suggest you start with 1 scoop, this stuff is NO joke.



Take one heaping scoop to assess personal tolerance.  Once tolerance has been assessed, users may increase dosage to 2 scoops in 6-8oz (depending on taste preference) of ice cold water.  Do not take with food.


Take one scoop in the morning to maintain increased Nitric Oxide, ATP and energy levels while assisting in reducing body fat and fatigue.*

The limit-pushing ingenuity behind Innovative Laboratories bodybuilding products are now wreaking havoc on the pre-workout market with the unleashing of their latest legacy: WICKED. This merciless “MASS-MAKER” employs a triad matrix of one-of-a-kind clinically engineered Nitric Oxide Ampliļ¬ers, Cell Volumizers & Neurogenic Energizers for pro-anabolic supremacy. WICKED is not just another me-too pre-workout product as it is truly a state-of-the-science product with several components found only in WICKED such as: Agmatine silicate; L-Citrulline Silicate and Red Wine 30% extract! WICKED is an elite pre-workout stack that provides explosive energy, long-lasting endurance, increased strength and power, road-map vascularity, and razor-sharp mental focus.  WICKED will help you to have the best workouts of your life!  You will defy limitations with each and every workout being your best!  WICKED is simply that....a  WICKED pre-workout putting your body in "beast mode" and causes you to have wicked energy, skin tearing pumps and freaky vascularity, all while increasing strength, giving you more endurance and keeping you focused throughout the entire workout and wishing you did not have to end the training day. Once you have used WICKED it will be pre-workout supplement that you will never want to train without. WICKED  guarantees to give you what you need without pixie-dusting ingredients or giving you nothing more than excessive caffeine.


As mentioned in the description, WICKED™ contains Agmatine Silicate (4-aminobutyl) guanidine silicate, which is a byproduct of Arginine that is produced through a process called decarboxylation. It is basically Arginine with the carboxylic acid end removed. Nearly anyone on planet earth is up on Arginine. Many years back, Arginine was heavily promoted by many bodybuilding companies and sports nutritionists as one of the hottest supplements in sports nutrition for its role in the production of  Nitric Oxide (NO). That is, until now! Agmatine Silicate is the one compound molecule to take part in more metabolic processing than Arginine. There are at least a dozen direct benefits to the bodybuilder and/or health enthusiast from Agmatine Silicate with even more effects being discovered literally on a daily basis! The benefits of Agmatine Silicate include: Increase Muscular Pumps– Enhances Nitric Oxide (NO) Production– Improves Nutrient Delivery to Muscle Cells– Improves Muscle Cell Insulin Sensitivity– and Boosts Endurance and Decreases Recovery Time. Supplementing with agmatine Silicate will yield a metabolic cascade that provides the benefits above and importantly promotes leanness and muscle building. Agmatine Silicate increases appetite even when full, making it easier for underweight individuals to gain weight and muscle.

Citrulline silicate is a proprietary Citrulline/silicate complex with powerful benefits for NO elvation. Arginine is a precursor to nitric oxide, the “miracle molecule” that expands blood vessels to optimize blood flow. Silicon is concentrated within the arteries, where it helps maintain their structural integrity.L-citrulline increases arginine plasma content by  improving the ammonia recycling process and nitric oxide metabolism.After ingesting citrulline, L-citrulline is converted into arginine in the kidneys. Supplemental L-arginine provides a spike of L-arginine in plasma, while supplemental L-citrulline increases arginine plasma levels over a longer period of time.Relative to arginine, citrulline is better absorbed in the intestines and is known as a better source of bodily arginine than arginine itself. Our unique Citrulline silicate provides the benefits of both arginine and silicon, along with additional benefits from the unique synergistic combination. Preclinical data clearly demonstrates the superiority of citrulline silicate over standard arginine, with over twice the improvement in blood flow in a head-to-head comparison of Bradykinin-induced vasodilation response.

The last part of the triad mixture is the Red Wine Extract standardized to 30% glycerol – most Glycerol monostearate (GMS) powdered glycerol products typically utilized in sports nutrition offers a fraction of the potency of the Red Wine Extract used by Innovative Laboratories in  WICKED™. GMS usually is 1.5 to 5% pure, whereas,WICKED™ is proprietary product contains 30% minimum of 25% free molecular glycerol and has numerous added advantages over straight glycerol alone.Glycerol like that present in WICKED™  is easily absorbed and distributed throughout the intracellular space, increasing the concentration of fluid in the blood and tissues, which positively affects osmolarity and hyperhydration. This brings potential benefits for endurance athletes and promoting excess blood flow associated with resistance training. Glycerol has also been shown to help athletes store extra water, delaying the need for hydration. This suggests improved efficiency in exercise, and enhancement of  plasma and intramuscular volume expansion, producing a more engorged muscular look. Red wine has been used by competitive bodybuilders for decades due to its special digestive properties that increase vascularity when consumed prior to a competition or photo shoot. Therefore, WICKED™ utilizes a proprietary red wine extract that will result in more noticeable and pronounced vascularity in most parts of the body. Basically, blood flow to major and minor muscle groups increases, causing the physique to appear fuller and causing veins to appear more pronounced and especially when in conjunction with weight training as when muscles or muscle groups are fatigued via resistance training, blood flow to that particular area increases to sustain oxygen delivery.  WICKED™ has left nothing to chance when developing the premier preworkout product to ever hit the marketplace.

WICKED™ extreme ability to affect the VO2 max is unlike any product on the market. VO2 max goes by many other names, including maximal oxygen uptake and maximal aerobic capacity. Essentially it is the capacity of one's body to absorb and utilize maximal oxygen during training. The V stands for volume, and the O2 stands for oxygen. Obviously, ensuring peak VO2 max is a major factor in supporting endurance potential.WICKED™ ability to increase VO2 is the endurance athlete’s answer to peak performance and endurance.  WICKED™ is designed to significantly increase strength, speed and power, and enhance recovery. These increases in performance and endurance are mediated by enhancing maximal oxygen uptake capacity (VO2 max), delaying fatigue, and preventing muscle damage during intense exercise.

WICKED™unlocking your potential for a monstrosity of lean Mass Gains and Punishing Pumps. WICKED™’S menacing one-of-a-kind, proprietary  formulation crams your muscle cells to the max with a feral fuel that will invoke Insane Vascularity, Sickening Strength, Hardcore Focus, and Unrelenting Endurance coupled with Heightened Hormonal and Insulin Levels. The interactive impact of this “WICKED PREWORKOUT” blend will turn your bodybuilding into BEAST-BUILDING! *

This is my review on a Pre-Workout and a BCAA product made by Chaos and Pain. I want to thank the awesome folks at Chaos and Pain for sending me these 2 products to try and review. A kick ass company with some solid products for sure!!


This Pre-Workout drink was freaking amazing. It had some serious energy and focus and made my workouts VERY intense. I would describe it as STRONG as fawk! Now by "strong" I mean on how it helped me power through my workouts, especially on those days I really didn't want to train. It wasn't letting me slack one bit. There were NO jitters or shakes, no drop off either. Just straight up energy and drive!

• featuring the most brutal stimulant legally on the market, OrchileanTM (Cymbidium Goeringii Extract), which has extreme DMAA-like qualities and will raise pulses like a hatchet attack in a crowded elevator.

• enough beta-alanine to make your hair stand on end and have you feel like your ass is on fire.  

• betaine anhydrous and creatine to increase power output and workout duration to evil superhuman levels.

• citrulline malate, atragalus, and panax notoginseng to provide Incredible Hulk-style crazy-pants pumps and roadmap vascularity.


• They packed this thing with every legal stimulant and nootropic they could find, making it perfect for anything ranging from picking things up and putting them down, smashing through all-night study sessions, or just getting through a workday with a hangover.

• So you're ready to chew through a barbell when you hit the gym, drop 1 heaping scoop of Ferox into whatever liquid you so desire.

• Don't take this stuff within 6 hours of bedtime, unless you like staring at the ceiling instead of counting sheep.

• Unless you want to recreate the Alien birth scene with your heart playing the role of a xenomorph chestburster, NEVER exceed 2 scoops in 24 hrs.

Next up is Cannibal Carna Instantized BCAA Blend

A fantastic BCAA product that tastes amazing. I mixed 2 scoops in to my half gallon jug and sipped on this nectar of the GODZ as I trained. It really helped with my recovery and did a great job of helping me get those extra reps in!
