    Thanks duder.

    Cousin got me a $100 gift certificate to GNC, since it's basically free money and I don't really use supplements what should I buy for shits and giggles.

    Happy birthday!

    Multivitamins, vitamin C, and/or psyllium husk. Just off the top of my head.

    Thanks Charly!

    I already take a Multivitam, Vitamin C, Zinc and Omega 3, and put psyllium husk in my shakes. I guess I don't consider those supplements but they are.

    Curious about trying out some BCAA's lot's of bullshit on the internet about it helping recovery times.

    They are a lot of bullshit imo.

    If you want to try them, take some off my hands.

    I literally have pounds of it just sitting here.

    Psyllium husk was a great find. Could just blow it on protein, dymatize isn't bad.

    Hah, well if you are saying it's no good i'll take your word for it.
    Is dymatize any better or worse than ON? I'm down to switch it up, but from all the research i've done it seems like ON is the best protein powder on the market. From my Italian mistress, enjoy RHET brahs. [​IMG]

    Best? Nah.

    It's probably the most widely available protein powder that's the cheapest for the quality you get, but there are better ones out there.

    But when I say "better" it's marginal. As long as you aren't allergic to anything, the cheapest one is the "best" one.

    Unfortunately, I need to get custom blends of beef/pea/rice proteins because I'm allergic to dairy and dairy byproducts.

    Haha, yes cougary milfy type of way, ain't nothing wrong with being 35 though! And thanks.


    Custom blend protein is baller, so if you where to walk into GNC with a $100 what protein would you buy to get the most bang for your buck, literally the cheapest available?

    I don't think about it much, but one my co-workers just reminded me today that I'll be 34 in a month. Training and diet are pretty much on point but making gains significantly slower than dudes 10yrs my junior kinda sucks. Makes me wish I started back then. But there's still measurable progress which is pretty much the only thing keeping me going.

    Yea, cheapest one available if you're not sensitive to lactose.

    The difference between "crap" protein and "high grade" protein is a few grams of carbs and and gram or two of fat. It's fucking ridiculous that anyone even cares about that. Especially since I believe, you shouldn't even need to take any sort of protein powders if you're trying to stay under 225 or something like that (or unless you live outside of the states where meat is fucking expensive like in the UK).

    You should be getting all your proteins from food. Plain and simple.

    To give you a sense of what I do.. I take in about 350g of protein a day.. and only 25g of that is protein powder.

    And I'm like 220+ in the morning.

    Nah, I totally hear you Charly, and I don't disagree. I try to consume at least 180 grams of protein per day, since that's how much I weigh, and I get all of it from food. I just feel like a little bit extra doesn't hurt, that plus the calories I get from making a shake with the protein powder, banana, peanut butter and yogurt gives me that extra little bit of oomph, why not?

    Think about it this way, you're miles ahead of the 24 year old who does not give a fuck about his physical health appearance and well being.
