Just out if pure curiosity how many protein shakes a day do you drink?
On training days and including post workout - I drink 3 shakes a day. (5 scoops /day)
how much do weight ?? you dont need to ingest that much protein,half of it goes to waste,you can grow with less than 300 grams..
the only difference i see when i drink shakes is that i look watery and it raises my triglycerides ..supplements are way to expensive in europe.if i lived in the usa i would consider using them
we have cheap and easy to find gear tho
I live in europe and you can find cheap supplements here, if you know where to buy and dont fall into branding hype.
YES, ain't nothing like good ol' eggs/chicken/tuna (I eat them everyday) but don't you get tired of eating? I mean, you can have a shake in 60 seconds, I don't think you could have 2 cans of tuna in that time...
Apples and oranges...
88 kg is good for someone at your age and you're quite lean also..good for you..how many meals you eat per day? 5 meals with a good amount of protein on each of them will be enough for you to grow and it would be more healthy + i promise that you will look leaner and dryer if you give up the shakes..i used to drink shakes for many years until i found out i look better(not bigger) without them
i understand what you say about cheap supplements.im sure not getting any muscletech ;) thing is that a 5 pound optimum nutrition protein costs 60 euros here while on the other hand a 10 week supply of pharmaceutical grade testosterone costs 50 eyros.so i prefer to do a cycle once in a year instead of protein shakes and creatines...you re still young and you should stay away from gear for now but in the future if you will be temped like i did.as to if you are going to take it..is your choice :)
i doubt if they even bother at all with supplements with so much gear they take
Please alex can you give us an insight about the cycles you run , and what you use?
^one person with normal genetics puts on 1-2 kilograms of muscle per year..anything else is water or fat.i checked your pics and you re on track..keep it up
i ve done three novice cycles.each on on spring seasson
1st test propionate and winstrol.....
2nd test cypionate with equipose
3rd test enanthate
Forgive me, but you look nothing like someone who has done gear, especially 3 cycles. I'm not trying to be a dick, but I'm 20 y/o, natty, done 4 shows and look bigger than you. There's something clearly wrong with your nutrition or training.
I usually drink 1 protein shake, 1-2 BCAA/glutamine shakes and one pre-wokrout shake on training day. On off days, or on days when I do cardio only, I try to avoid protein shakes and might drink a BCAA shake. Solid food is way better for your digestive system.

The amount would not be a worrying factor but how much you assimilate?
It is always best to use them alternately with solid food!
And assimilate and synthesize all the intakes of the day!
Also if you use some simple combinations as Whey
And sometimes combined with more than 4 or 5 proteins
would be great for times like when you work or sleep!
Of course these last well (low-carb!)
2 on training days. One is always @ breakfast cus I can't eat anything as soon as I woke up, and the other one after training. On off days I have only the morning shake.
i dont have 3 cycles when the pics where taken..i havent even finished the first one (back pic was taken before i use any gear)
im not a bodybuilder so i dont care about getting big,i want to have an athletic body and look good.im doing pretty well in that department
i use gear because i like the effects it has..i feel stronger i dont get tired or shore,it boosts my confidence and it makes my d,ick hard 24/7
my first cycle was like this :
week 1-4 100 mg test eod
week 4-8 100 mg test eod and 50 mg winstrol ed
thats about as low as you can go on dosing,started the cycle at 70 kg and when it finished i was 75..gained 5 kilograms in 8 weeks.. i was more defined and far more vascular..
so what do you think will happen with less than a half gram of test per week?you will turn on hulk or something?
