    Depends on your training goals. For the most part, a good protein post workout is fine. If you're bulking, take in more carbs than usual post workout is really the only difference.

    Really pat attention to carbs, a lot of proteins cut down on them (for bulking). I've been trying to find a new post workout protein myself, but no luck so far

    Whey/Carb blend post workout. Eat plenty of protein and carbs and you will recover. No trick or special protein needed.

    5g 4:1:1 BCAA + Propel Powder, 5x per day + 6 capsules of USPlabs PRIME (2/2/2) per day. Nothing that beats it, in my opinion.

    If you're bulking, you could just make your own. Add peanut butter, fruit, oats and whatever else you can think of to a couple of scoops of whey and you got yourself a weight gainer.

    I agree... i loveto make my own weight gaining shakes:
    staples of mine:
    instant oats grinded
    whey casien mix or sustained release protein
    all natural PB
    mac nut oil
    maybe some kinda fruit like banana, strawberry, blueberries, etc...

    bets the crap they sell over the counter.

    I think if you eat a good foods you get all your BCAAs so unless u workout early in the am its not really needed.

    Glutamine, creatine, beta alanine, vitargo/waxy maize all post workout staples of mine

    I hear Powerfull, IGF2, Prime, Stoke + Testofen, AP, Glycobol... all that stuff helps with recover also, but it can be pretty $$$$

    I usually go with my favorite BCAA product that has a 4:1:1 ratio.
    Ask me for samples of the new RecoverPRO and Maniac. 3Z is coming July 1st Facebook for more info and maybe a great deal on it coming.

    Weight gainers are EASY!!! And really great too!

    Here's one I like, though it's a beast to drink..

    16oz Milk (2% or skim or whatever)
    1.5 cups of dry Oats
    2 scoops Whey
    1 tbsp EVOO

    And of course you can add or subtract whatever. Simple, effective, beastly..

    Coincidentally, you may want to add another form of fats or just drink the EVOO separate. It floats to the top and is kind of gross mixed with the other ingredients, unless you don't mind taste.

    Some great products have been mentioned. The basics could include EAAs (with a 4:1:1 BCAA profile), Citrulline Malate, and Beta Alanine. One could build on this foundation.

    Yes. This reminds me of AE Intrabolic. Love that stuff. Recovery is awesome with that mixture!
