      For me I liked using Xtend for my intra followed with 1 scoop of ON Whey protein with water. Myofusion is also a good option for post workout, I felt it was more filling but still prefer ON.

      so if it helps, I've found that if you mix the cocoa into the milk then leave it in the fridge (i left it in overnight, I like a glass at breakfast) the cocoa distributes excellently and goes down smooth the whole way, with a little bit of residual powder at the bottom after you finish which I enjoy scooping out with a spoon. Quite tasty

      I'm gonna say the first one posted, the p90x result and recovery formula. I use it and it's awesome, especially after p90x!

      oh my word this is delicious. Best protein powder I've ever tasted. I have the chocolate milkshake flavor, and it tastes just like...chocolate milk.

      I have a question for the fitness gurus in here. I'm 5'10" and 215 lbs (about 30 lbs above where I would like to be at)

      If my goal is to get in shape and loose weight, should I be taking a recovery drink like a whey protein shake after a workout? or would that be counter intuitive to loosing weight?

      take in less calories than you burn daily.
      ultimately it doesn't matter where or what those calories come from.
      they should be quality whole foods though.


      do you need a protein shake? no.

      Def eat less than what you burn and i would still recommend some sort of after workout beverage! It helps recover, lol...Thats the point.

      False.
      There is roughly a 24-36 hour window where most of the "repair work" occurs. Having some dinky protein shake right after you lift, is going to have a fairly negligible effect on recovery. As long as you don't forget to eat in the next day to day and a half, recovery will not be impeded.

      The only reason you should ever need a protein shake, is to simply supplement the amount of protein you need, but cannot obtain through eating whole foods.

      There is a source with much more detailed info on this topic.

      To the Op, do what you feel...some website about myths may not necessarily be the right place for information either.

      False again. It is a perfect place for information, complete with a fully cited reference list. Sorry that it disagrees with your incorrect opinion though.

      None of that research applies to participants of P90X, their bodies are too confused.

      Always started with a good greens + starch + fruit meal. After that, used to use Isopure Perfect between 2006-2008 (stopped because my lactose intolerance came back fulltime)...then I started using NitroFusion 2008-stopped buying when it was discontinued...for the past month i've been using Arbonne protein powder [that of which I distribute]. Looking forward to a swift return from Nitrofusion though. But with those powders, I always put in a teaspoonful of L-glutamine, with a pinch of cinnamon. Works wonders for me.

      It's not really necessary for me to use a true recovery drink, but this is a habit that I like that I got into back in the day when I competed in triathlons. And, it's tasty and the macros add up for me.

      I mix it myself with my own ingredients and never buy the prebottled stuff.

      Me also...skim chocolate milk is the best and its cheap....

      Check out this article by Dr. Casey Butt.
      He contrasting opinions to modern training techniques and recent developments like the pre-training and recovery drinks that you're supposed to drink less than 1 hour after lifting etc.

      Basically he points to the 1950's bodybuilders and the kinds of training they did before steroids existed and he believes that modern strength training information is polluted by the kinds of training regimes steroid using bodybuilders use because their pre-competition training regimes get so much attention in magazines.


      It's kind of interesting when you consider that these 50's bodybuilders don't look any different than modern steroid-free bodybuilders and yet they didn't have any supplements at all and their training was completely different. It supports this other article I was reading in the Journal of Exercise Physiology that said
      Genetic factors apparently have a very strong influence on how people respond to the exact resistance training protocol. That is, responses are primarily determined by genetics, not by specific training protocols.
      Basically their study just found that we are genetically predisposed and all strength training has the same effectiveness. Doing one set 3 times per week had nearly identical results to doing three sets three times per week etc. It's pretty interesting stuff.

      Yeah he talks a lot about compound exercises but the third section goes into a nice long rant about supplements.

      I can't count how many times I've seen guys in the gym wimp out on a set of squats and put the bar back with good reps left in them (if they even do squats), yet those same guys will whip out a bottle of some useless, overpriced capsules of God-knows-what when their workout is finished and think they're accomplishing something. Let me tell you, there isn't a supplement on Earth that's as anabolic as that one extra squat would have been had they been man enough to do it. But they'll sit on the bench with their hopes in a little bottle of pills of ground up weeds from God-knows-where and not supported by a shred of peer reviewed scientific evidence. These people need to wake up!

      A hearty calorie dense shake during my workout consisting of powdered oats, fats, milk and whey. Post workout it's milk and whey.

      I am going to give this a shot.. It sounds like it would be perfect in the morning when no time for a decent breakfast...

      He was being sarcastic. Great post from T-Nation though.

      In my opinion packed drinks are not more healthy and beneficial for the health and fitness.
      You should try to take some thing natural such as fresh fruits juices or fruits and milk shakes or protein shakes to get rich amount of energy and for the muscles recovery.
