  • I've read and been told that the max your body can take in and use is 40ish grams per serving.
    The ON Whey Protein I use is 24g/scoop... so I put in two scoops to max out.
    70-80g's is just a waste of protein.

    I would stick with what you do. Don't over do it or you'll just be (pooping) out the excess... and protein isn't cheap now a days.

      • I used Jack3d for quite some time. Towards the end, about a month ago, I was up to 3 scoops. I just felt more of a pump at that point. I've lifted since without it and it hasn't been any different other than the fuller feeling in your muscles.

        I'm going to stack C4 and Yok3d in the near future. Heard it was super intense. I've never used either so I'm definitely going to test some C4 first.

        As far as the shoe question, I'd go with any Nike running shoe personally. I feel most comfortable in them not only when running but lifting as well.

          PS, how much protein do you guys consume post workout? Like 30 minutes-ish after?
          I've been putting one scoop of my powder in milk or a shake (I think thats 30-35ish? grams), but my buddy told me today he puts in about double that.
          I drink a shake when I get back and about 45 minutes later eat a full meal with my carbs, proteins, and fats. The body can only process so much protein in a certain period of time I'm told. I believe it's something like 35-40 grams. I tend to spread my intake over the course of a day.

          • This is going to be a triple post but whatever.

            My Sundays are cardio typically but I want to do a full ab workout as well. Usually I do 3 different exercises at the end of 3 of my workouts during the week but I figured devoting a day to them would increase development. Anyone have ideas?

              I'm trying to do a cut phase. I'm adding this routine into my workouts
              One week, this routine... 2nd week... my regular routine but with sets of 3X12
              Alternating each cycle...
              Day 3 of that routine is all abs... I've gone through the cycle once and the ab day gave me a good burn.
              Day one and day two whooped my ass though

              • You could do Abs and cardio on the same day.

                  I am a big fan of Brooks. I have only had these the past 3 years...the Adrenaline GTS model to be exact. I would highly recommend them...they are light and give really good support. I run 3-5 miles 4-5 times a week (either treadmill or outdoors). No complaints from me.

                      A lot of guys I know that do it have been doing Boring But Big (BBB) at first to get used to the program. Then they move on to one of the other assistance models.

                      • A best quality multivitamin and mineral supplement is a good concept for weight lifting. But make sure you are getting all the necessary vitamins and minerals taht you need. Some people considered that their muscle mass increases with the help of protein supplements that contain certain blends of amino acids, such as creatine and glutamine.

                        • I just tried adding Insanity to my workout and it's definitely got me shredded, just throwing it out there. I definitely lost some muscle mass but the fat loss was worth it.

                            Yep. Just found out about it in January though. Went to Kansas to play football for a smaller DII school and our MLB was big on supps, real cool guy and he knew alot about it so I always ask for different opinions on things since I was taking NO2 Red primarily at the time. He has a really good frame for his size without much muscle fat and is one of those gym rats so I trusted his opinion.


                            I liked the way it worked for me, then again only used it for maybe 6 months, but I couldn't tell you what effects it had alone because I was stacking it with a few things and cycling on/off. It did help with the pump which is very important, and I felt amped up during workout sessions.


                            It may be a slightly different product but I've always felt more comfortable with MRI NO2. Used it for years, understand how it works for me personally, never an ounce of soreness, extra energy towards the end of my workout. I just haven't had anything that's worked better.


                            Helped me get from 161 to 179 in about 5 months on a strict diet with protein 3x a day and a consistent 3-4 meals per day. I'm about maxed out on weight now that I'm closing in on 185, 190 might be possible, but I'm looking for more shaving off body fat at this point now that I've packed up alot of weight that wasn't always the "good weight".

                            • I'm a big MRI NO2 fan as well. The one consistent supplement I take.
                              It also helped me go from 150 to 175 over an 12 month military deployment.
                              Granted, all I did was workout, work and sweat over that time period so results are better there then they are when I'm back home. (Which I am now)

                              I'm using Jack3d now. Not bad. Does it's job.
                              I think the best pre-sup I've taken is still Animal Pump though.
