I am gone at least half the month. I spend tons of time on airplanes and in hotels. Therefore, it is pretty much impossible for me to take apowder or whey protein powder with me. I plan to buy whey protein to drink as a shake after working out at home. My feeling from all the research I have done is that I would like to increase the protein intake and also take creatine. Are any of the creatine tablets or capsules effective? Any suggestions for a person that is gone all the time?
Good subject. I would be following it as well.
Typically what I carry with me are:
a) RTD shakes.
b) Box of Xtend to get me BCAA's(just shake it and leave it for a while)
c) FIsh oil.
d) Lever tablets
I personally recommend Xtend since I have seen me hold on to muscles even when I am not working out or having the best diets.
I've been thinking about this myself, glad someone decided to create a thread on it. I'll be heading up to Alaska for two weeks in June/July and was wondering the same thing.
A lot of time I will have a few bottle of some supplement tablets(X Factor, Multivitamins, Fish oil) and other boxes with powders(Protein, BCAA etc). Atleast 5 times out of 10 I have gotten stopped and wasted about an hour or so. And of course anyone who has ever walked onto a plane these days knows the ego trip the ****** security guards have.
Not recommended. Check the stuff in. Better still get down at your destination and buy what you want/like.
Then again maybe Mooch is really dedicated(I appreciate that), not that I am not but hey my guns are still not past 17 and he is 18 already.
How about something like Ultra Peptide 2.0? Its a nice low carb MRP, quality protein, and about 1g of creatine per serving?
While traveling it can serve as breakfast / PostWO and as a creatine source.

Buy your creatine in capsule form.
That is what I decided to do. I bought creatine monohydrate capsules. They have 1200 mg in each one. I can put around 40 of them in an aspirin bottle and put them in my bag. I am gone nearly half the month but typically 2 - 4 days at a time. That gives me plenty for any trip since I only take 3 or 4 of the 1200mg capsule per day.
Since I work out mostly at home I plan to just keep taking whey after working out at home. When I am gone I will just try to get enough protein and supplement with protein bars if I need to. Maybe not the perfect plan, but relatively convenient though.
I actually just brought both protein and bulk bcaa's onto a plane, as long as its powder and not liquids or gels they don't have a problem
