ON 100% Whey. Good product, good company. I agree... shop online. Never buy supplements offline.

I use Optimum Nitrition too. Inexpensive, tastes good, comes in a 5 lb tub or a 10 lb bag.

I like the ON brand also...I mix the chocolate flavor with a bit of chocolate soymilk and it tastes great.

Re: best protein supplement for weight training?

I'd suggest either Labrada Pro V60 (60g protein/130 calories/12g cards/2.5g fat per serving), or Nitro Gen Extreme (60g protein/270 calories/5g carbs/2g fat per serving).

Re: best protein supplement for weight training?

there has to be a typo on that first one. 60g protein alone would be 240 calories

Yeah, sorry, that was a typo, wasn't thinking. It's actually 310.

And sorry about the links, moderator, sir. <G>

I agree on the shake, but not the buying advice. I buy it at a local Vitaminshoppe for 1.74c per gram of protein ($30.79 for 5lb jar). This is by far the cheapest I've found whey protein.

On a side note, I got some soy protein for my wife and found that the amino mix for this different protein is different than the whey. ~ 4x the l-arginine...wondering if soy would be better for my nightcap shake.

Re: best protein supplement for weight training?

30 dollars is pretty good. you can find whey online for 20 to 25 dollars for a 5lb container.

i believe optimum has 10lb bags for under 40 dollars also.

Re: best protein supplement for weight training?

San's a good company. I'm not a big fan of pure isolate myself, though, due to price. I'd rather take some extra ON if I were concerned.

Re: best protein supplement for weight training?

really? i didn't think the price was too bad.... $23 for the 2lbs container sounded like a good price for a high quality protein supplement. i'm currently using prolab pure whey, but it's a protein concentrate not an isolate.

also, i mixed that up. Syntrax makes Isomatrix, San makes Thyro-cuts. sorry for the confusion.

What do you mean by "I seem to have reached my limit for the time being but know ive got more in me"? If mean you've plateaued, a new protein supp's not gonna be the answer. You only really benifit from a shake post workout so in relation to you're whole intake for the day, this is only one meal (all be it quite an important one). If you're looking to get bigger, you'll need to look at the rest of your diet too (i.e. eating more calories, getting sufficient protein etc) and changing up your workout routine.
