The good people at Naked Nutrition reached out to me and asked me to give their pre-workout supplement, Naked Energy, a try.  While I work out regularly, I generally don’t use supplements of any kind.  I’ll crush a protein bar after one or two workouts a week, but that’s about it.  Regardless, I gave Naked Energy a go.

Price: A-

Overall: B

With only 10 premium, non GMO ingredients, Naked Nutrition’s Naked Energy is for the health conscious go-getter who wants that extra “umph” before their workout.  While I wasn’t a fan of the taste, I did feel a sense of alertness and energy that I didn’t have a half hour prior to ingesting the supplement.  I made the mistake one morning of taking Naked Energy on an empty stomach, and got a wicked headache, but otherwise Naked Energy did the trick.

For $39.99 you get 50 servings, which should last you about 2 months.  If you’re interested, you can scoop a tub of Naked Energy here, or order through Amazon.com.

For some, it was a joyous justification full of optimism but others will be searching their pockets looking for a receipt. Read the rest of this entry »

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics have finally completed the trade that sent Kyrie Irving to the Celtics for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, an unprotected 1st round draft pick (via the Brooklyn Nets) and now a 2020 second round pick (via the Miami Heat).

This deal was announced last week, but due to the questionable health of Isaiah Thomas’ hip, the Cavs were looking for additional compensation from the Celtics. With a Thursday morning deadline looming, the Cavs agreed to take the 2020 2nd round pick as the additional compensation for the hip.
