Well today at Spartan Barbell Fitness we’re going to answer those questions and more in today’s article so stay tuned!

What is BSN Amino x?

BSN Amino x is a muscle building recovery boosting supplement that uses BCAAs and other amino acids to get the job done. BCAAs are branch chain amino acids that help in repairing and building muscle tissues.

The 3 essential amino acids are L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine.

These 3 are essential amino acids, meaning the body can not produce them on their own. They must be gotten from our daily diet or through supplements.

BSN Amino x is made by Bio-Engineered Supplements and Nutrition. BSN was founded in 2001 and since has become a leader in the supplement industry.

So rest assured this is a quality product from a safe and trusted brand!

How Does BSN Amino x Work?

Amino x uses the BCAAs mentioned above in a 2:1:1 formula and a couple other amino acids to help repair and build muscles to improve and optimize one’s recovery time.

This means being less sore and building lean muscle at the same time.

Let’s take a look at the ingredients and talk about each one to get a better look at how Amino x works.

Our Personal Review on BSN Amino x

BSN Amino x review

Now that we have fully answered “What is BSN Amino x?” it’s time for our own personal thoughts on it after giving it a try for ourselves. This is an in-depth review, so we broke it into sections, which we scored. Then at the end we will average them to give our own overall rating. Let’s get started!

Flavor and Cost Test

For our flavor testing we use 4 taste testers so we can have a good range of comments from different people, and we use a 3-prong method to see just how well it stacks up. For our testing we will be using the WATERMELON flavor. Here’s our results.

  • Sweetness- 4/4 testers said it was perfect Not to sweet at all! And not even the least bit bitter.
  • After-taste- 3/4 testers said it has ZERO after-taste, but 1 tester said there was a slight one but not awful.
  • Flavor- 3/4 testers said it was awesome! Not chalky at all and packs a good flavor you don’t have to choke down, but 1 tester said he has had better watermelon flavors in the past.

The Cost Test- BSN gets good marks here. We love when products are under $1.00 a serving. This makes it very affordable for the masses!

Overall Flavor and Cost Score 9.1 out of 10

Recovery and Endurance Test

Our 2 lifters had a good experience with BSN Amino x in regard to their recovery process. Both were less sore than usual and recovered quicker than normal. Expect to be less sore than usual.

For example- after shoulder day most people are sore for at least 2 days and possibly tender on the 3rd day if giving 100%. With Amino x our lifters we much less sore on day 1 and 2, and they had no soreness or tenderness on day 3.

This is great! Recovery is key to strength and muscle gains. If you’re hurting or your muscles have not recovered it impedes your progress and goals.

In the endurance category it did pretty well. Expect to get a little further before your muscles hit their limits. Remember every rep counts. Be sure to use proper form!

Overall Recovery and Endurance Score 9.3 out of 10

  1. Hi There,

    I loved your website and showed it to my friend who said the information and recipes on there are really helpful. I liked the way your website is in good shape and well laid out for me to read. The brief simple summaries of each amino acid were really cool for me to learn and also the Recovery and Endurance Test info which really told me how much power I have and how well or quick I can recover. I suppose this is good for fewer injuries or not?
