    College student HELP


    Hello. I had no money and had to use freak fix muscle whey for the last three months as my only supplement. Now i am on Drive,igf-2,and 2nd gear. But when this runs out I cant spend to much money on any supps. I will also keep a protein powder of course but I was thinking of getting one solid supp that does it all. I am bulking right now through march. I am thinking of trying either NOSHOTGUN or DIESELTEST HARDCORE or SIZEONE. Which one should I try for a bulk as a stand only supp? Thanks my stats are 5'9" 170lbs 12.5-13.5%fat (dont want to gain much fat maybe 5lbs muscle to 1 lb fat if possible) I eat about 2700-3000 calories a day and workout 4 times a week.

    I would just go with creatine. It's cheap, doesn't blow your wallet, will help with recovery, strength, size.

    Creatine with a good diet and training program should be all you really need now.
    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.

    I just have to ask, why do people prefer to buy BCAA's as a standalone when most protein mixes out there already include them and can be had for the same price?

    By the way, creatine gets my vote. I'm in college myself and have money to spend on supplements, and I am doing fine with creatine and whey protein.

    More importantly, make sure you're eating good foods while you are at college. I know how the dining halls usually have fried food every meal, but make healthy choices with that. Also, in my dorm I stock up on eggs, cottage cheese, mixed nuts, protein powder, tuna, milk, oatmeal and chicken breasts. That is what will dictate your muscle/fat gain, eat clean foods and count calories.

    Amino Acids found in protein are in peptide chains. Therefore the stomach must break those chains up. Taking amino acids in protein and food seem to not yield the same effects if taken singularly. There are very little similarities between taking in protein that has say 3 grams of arginine vs. 3 grams of singular arginine. I believe it has something to do with the digestion and the breaking up of the peptide chains. Your body does not get to utilize the full amount. I dunno if im 100% correct on this but this is what I have come to understand. Also there is quite a big difference as far as digestion rate and the rate in which you will receive benefits. From what I hear to get the full benefits from intaking whey protein you have to wait anywhere up to 90 minutes where as if you intake BCAA's..... say PWO.... they are available to your body in just around 15 minutes.

    How about a solid fat burner with those stats? And spend extra on good clean healthy food.

    It'd be nice to get all the fancy brand names/formulas. Just get bulk creatine and if you need a preworkout just get some Shock Therapy by Universal Nutrition. It's not the best out there but it lasts forever and it's pretty cheap.
