Dear Bodybuilding.net Community,
I have recently started going back to the gym (around a month and a half ago) and I have been using Dymatize's Super Amino Liquid 23,000mg a week in and two weeks later Apidexin because I need to lose some body weight. I've already lost a significant amount of body weight in a short time, went from 79kgs to 71kgs and my body fat is reduced to 17%.. still want to reduce some more so I'll be taking Apidexin for a while longer.
Anyway, I haven't noticed much of an improvement by using the Super amino Liquid (I drink it before and after workout). Friends of mine who use Whey Protein get much better results, so I was wondering if that's the case. Are Whey Protein supplements actually better in lean muscle gain than amino acids are (or at least the one I am using)?
The whey protein I am interested in is the 100% Whey Gold Standard by Optimum Nutrition. If it's good, should I drink it before and after workouts only? I'm getting a bodybuilding.com shaker bottle along with it because I hate using blenders. I've also heard that taking ON's BCAA pills right before the workout (along with the pre and post whey) will make a huge improvement in lean muscle gain. Is that true?
Any help is appreciated, guys. Thank you very much.
