Some questions about supplements
 
I done my research and for the money ON 100% whey protein gold standard sounds pretty good for the money. One thing I could not find out was how many servings to take? The serving size is one scoop but that is only 24g of protein. Should I take two scoops after workout or take one in the morning and one after workout or some other combination? I'm kind of hoping just 1 a day because 2 scoops a day and I'll go through a 2lb jar pretty quick.

An other question is that last month I bought Vitamin Shoppe's brand of creatine becasue it was cheap and was my first time using creatine. While I was on it I did notice gains. I just don't know if I could of seen better using a more expensive creatine product. I would think that 100% creatine monohydrate is made the same but maybe not. Is paying more for a name brand creatine worth the money?

My last question has to do with BCAA's and Glutamine. I know that OP 100% whey protien has glutamine and BCAA's in it but maybe it is not enough to meet the requirements. Should I take those too?

Read the sticky on pre and post workout nutrition. You need a carb & protein shake post workout. There is no need to supplement with additional BCAA's. Supplementing with glutamine is an even bigger waste of money. You might need additional shakes to help you meet your protein requirements. Most of it should come from whole foods.

Nothing has been proven to be better than creatine monohydrate for the money. It gets the job done. I think around 90% of all creatine monohydrate comes from the same company in China, so most "manufacturers" are using the same stuff.
