which protein powder?
 
I have ordered the dextrose and maltodextrin on BN
do I order whey protein or protein blends to go with it for my post w/o shake.

also is there a big difference between pre workout shakes and post workout shakes
I mean do i want quick acting carbs like an apple and an orange before training or more complex carbs

Defnitly quick acting simple carbs before workout, it will help spike the insulin levels. Afterwards, I usually drink N large with a scoop of optimum whey, it works fine for me. It all depends on the time of the day u workout. :D

Incredible Taste! High Protein Muscle Gainer!

N-Large II is a powerful mass gaining formula designed to pack size on the hardest gainers. This potent formula delivers more calories and protein gram for gram. Prolab puts an emphasis on the amount of protein per serving since it is the only nutrient proven to assist in promoting muscle mass.

Prolab uses only cross flow, micro filtered, cold processed ion exchanged whey protein. This protein has a superior amino acid profile, an unbeatable bioavailability, is low in lactose and is instantized for easy mixing without a blender.

You simply will not find a protein of this grade used in other weight gain formulas. Prolab has avoided overloading its formula with carbohydrates. Prolab uses just enough to help fuel your workouts and replenish depleted glycogen stores, but not enough to cause drowsiness.

Studies show that too many carbohydrates increases the levels of serotonin crossing over the brain barrier, thereby inducing drowsiness. Fat, although shunned by some, is highly concentrated energy source (double that of protein and carbohydrates) supplying the body with fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K.

Fat is also a necessary component of all cell membranes, nerve covering, digestive secretions and most importantly, hormone production. A diet too low in fats may actually impair growth (For these reasons, small amounts of necessary dietary fat is contained in N-Large II).
