    Re: How many shakes a day?

    On Strength training days i have 3, On other i have 1.

    I get 285 g on cardio days, 287 g on rest days and 326 g on days i strength train.

    You guys should also mention how high your protein intake is, If you're solely talking about protein shakes.

    shakes are supplements, there is no way I could ingest that much protein without them. (300gr + )

    Re: How many shakes a 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

    lol mvsf1 did the math, I didn't even knew I was eating that much, I just ate what I found reasonable to me. I'm 88kg right now, shooting for 90 at the end of the year.

    I live in europe and you can find cheap supplements here, if you know where to buy and dont fall into branding hype.

    Yeah, the math is correct, believe me. You are eating 5000kcal per day, LOL. Anyway, I don't think whey would make you watery, that's the first time I heard it. I'm eating 200-220 grams of protein a day, and I wouldn't do it if I must take another 300 grams os chicken breast instead 2 and a halpf scoops of whey. And whey is cheaper...

    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...

    Re: How many shakes a day?

    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

    is not the same mate..solid food is what makes muscles grow.shakes have very little space in someones daily nutrition.basically only after training any other time of the day you just pee it..and yes they make you hold water that why most pros dont drink them close to contest

    i doubt if they even bother at all with supplements with so much gear they take

    yeah bro I see what you mean, and I agree with you, if you looked into my profile pic that was taken at 82-83 kg at the start of the year, but i'm a bit bigger now and still lean enough so I guess I gained a bit muscle. I eat 6 meals a day + post workout (shake), meal number 6 is a shake also (before bed).

    Please alex can you give us an insight about the cycles you run , and what you use?

    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.


    On topic:
    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.

    Re: How many shakes a day?

    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!

    Otherwise
    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?
