I've been using 1st Phorm's Phormula-1 for about a month now post workout mixed with their product Ignition. My question is, as this stuff is relatively expensive (for me), is it really necessary. I've read and heard people talk about the "stuff in the 5lb containers" not being as good. Though one thing for the Phormula-1 the taste is great.
I've only heard that though, not sure where they are getting their information. So my question is, could I just go with the Optimum Nutrition's mixed with some and get similar results?
Is it just hype? A quote from their site.
"Ignition was formulated to go with Phormula-1 to help glycogen levels and spike your insulin to drive the protein in Phormula-1 directly into your muscle cells after training. Without providing a source of glycogen for your body after training, you run the risk of a portion of your Phormula-1 being wasted or being converted in the body to glycogen instead of being used for muscle recovery."
I feel like I am just spending my money on some overpriced supplements here and would like to trim my supplement budget where I can as a father of 2 and the only one with the income in the family.
