• Protein shake suggestions
    25 replies, posted
Lately I've been working out and lifting weights for strength and endurance purposes, rather than to try to look good (I play a sport, so I need to keep my strength up.) I do a mix of cardio and heavy lifting to try to gain strength while trying to get in better shape. I've been trying out different protein formulas, and I was wondering what you guys would suggest for me (I have been using Elite Gourmet but I've lately heard some ill things about Dymatize, so I was looking for something new.) What are some good protein powders out there?
Myofusion or Isoflex. From my experience these shakes all suck: Gold Standard (Come at me haters). Anything from Six star is awful. That "organic shit" is terrible.

Come at me, I don't use Pshakes. HOW CAN THAT BE????
[QUOTE=Seith;33837363]Come at me, I don't use Pshakes. HOW CAN THAT BE????[/QUOTE] Because you actually eat high protein foods and don't need to supplement????
[QUOTE=GamerKiwi;33837380]Because you actually eat high protein foods and don't need to supplement????[/QUOTE] Im a freshman in college, can't always eat what I want. Protein shakes are nice to have
[QUOTE=GamerKiwi;33837291]What's wrong with Gold Standard?[/QUOTE] I didn't like any of the flavours I bought, feels strange going down, doesn't taste like what there labled as. Cookies and cream tastes like coffee imo...
YOU HIPSTERS AND YOUR SHITTY BRANDS LIKE IT FUCKIN MATTERS [url]WWW.TRUEPROTEIN.COM[/url] ( NOW CALLED TRUE NUTRITION I GUESS) IS LITEARLLY THE CHEAPEST SHIT THERE IS AND YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN BLENDS
[QUOTE=Flaxer;33837422]Im a freshman in college, can't always eat what I want. Protein shakes are nice to have[/QUOTE] Absurd. You can't make a sandwich? for the rest of your day? It's even more absurd that you think you need that much protein you require a pshake. You're probably stationary most of your day if you're a freshman... therefore = "pshakes nice to have" = too lazy to make food, so I buy it in powder form. I am against this notion as laziness, this kind of laziness, is the first sign of shitty workouts, nutrition sleep and general dedication and progress. When a person has enough time to make 4 sandwiches a day or whatever, he has enough time to produce a satisfying, not a waste of time, kind of workout
this true protein thing. what is a recommended blend just to get regular whey protein for cheap? there is so much stuff i am not sure what is added.
If your not buying from true nutrition, you are probably over paying.
I know I am over paying but I am saying what all should I get? I just want choclate whey protein that works. suggestions?

Just select the flavours if you just want pure protein.
[QUOTE=Arcana;34320492]If your not buying from true nutrition, you are probably over paying.[/QUOTE] wtf is this true nutrition shit that is all over the place? that shit ends up being about the price as bodybuilding.com whey prices. just buy some myofusion dude
huh. there is a plus side. i could get it with out splenda added like the current stuff I get. Splenda tends to me me and my family members retain water and Appear as if we arn't losing weight at all. Not that is my goal in exercise but it would be nice :P
[QUOTE=Mr_Razzums;34337864]wtf is this true nutrition shit that is all over the place? that shit ends up being about the price as bodybuilding.com whey prices. just buy some myofusion dude[/QUOTE] retarded . unless youre looking at the more concentrate protiens it ends up being load cheaper than anything from bb. something to check out is gemma pea protein and some other protein mixed with it or the 85% whey they have
[QUOTE=Mr_Razzums;34337864]wtf is this true nutrition shit that is all over the place? that shit ends up being about the price as bodybuilding.com whey prices. just buy some myofusion dude[/QUOTE] You can make your own blends, for starters.
I got just straight whey protein. Does that have everything a protein shake needs? like on the back of commercial stuff there is all the listings of ammio acids and such. Does this have that or no?
amino acid = protein
yes. but there are plenty of difference kinds :) Are you saying it doesn't mater if you get just one type?
[QUOTE=CardBoardBox;34465928]yes. but there are plenty of difference kinds :) Are you saying it doesn't mater if you get just one type?[/QUOTE] Whey has a large profile of amino acids.
Ah thanks. that is good to know. Also, from True nutrition it says it is like what? 85% whey protein? what is a good amount to add to a shake after a work out? Currently the stuff i buy says 2 full scoops to hit "100% daily values based off 2000 calorie diet." any advice?
Ah wtf, FPAndroid destroyed my paragraph. Basically, 2 after is probably fine, but you still may not be getting enough protein from meals. The recommendation for prot. in the avg diet is far too low (imo) for those who workout. Figure out how much prot you get in a day, and aim for over 1g/lbs of body weight. Ideally, for building muscle, aim for up to 1.5g/lbs if you can manage it. I think what I sad is correct, but I'd wait to see what the others say

Personally I use their creatine and pre workout powder and it works great.
