    That would be Cytomax.

    Where can you get it?

    ALSO what is that yellow drink that Agassi brings to hit matches in a rather large bottle. He ran out of it during this match.

    Im guessing Evian doesnt make it but rather throws their label on it for advertising.

    Maybe Andre puts some Kool-Aid in his Evian.

    Stuffed looked like NOXplode.
    My brother drinks that stuff and I swear it looks IDENTICAL.
    But it probably isnt lol.

    Probably is what BaseLineBash said "Cytomax" cause taking NOxplode would give ya a major boost in power and I dont think you would want that when you need a lot of coordination in tennis. Also since it contains NO it would pump you up and that def cannot be good for tennis ehehe.
    Cytomax on the other hands buffers away lactic acid and stuff. Thats exactly what you need for long matches or when training hard.

    Is it the cytomax (cytosports energy) drink? There are many choices in cytomax drinks but that is probably it right?

    Also, are these drinks bad for you? I heard energy drinks can be bad for you.

    They aren't FDA approved so I can't say if they are bad for you or not, but many athletes use Cytomax as well and Andre.

    Depends on the amount of caffeine in it. Caffeine levels are regulated in most sports anyway.

    If it is Cytomax, I know for a fact you can buy it @ GNC, as that's where I've bought mine. However, in all the GNC's I've been to, the only flavor I've seen is Fruit Punch. It's just not a popular product in my area, according to what 1 store manager told me.

    Definitely Cytomax. It doesn't have the best flavor but works better than Gatorade.

    Vitamin World has it on sale right now.

    For the entire month of September it's 13.99 per can. I stocked up yesterday. I like the Fruit Punch but also buy the Cool Citrus.

    From the residue at the bottom of the bottle, the pink stuff looks like Accelerade
    which has a 4 to 1 ratio of carbs to protein. You can buy it from most cycling stores as it is very well tolerated when exercising.:cool:

    I didn't want to make another thread about drinks, so i'll just ask here -- I see a lot of players kind of mixing their drinks, like taking a sip of one then taking a sip out of something else then swallowing. Any idea what that does?

    Is this a powder drink or a concentrate that you mix with water?
