greetings one and all.
Sometime lurker, first time poster here.
I've decided recently that I am somewhat tired of being
embarrassed to take my shirt off at the beach.
Height: 6' + a skosch
Metabolism: faster side of things
Eat lots of veggies and some meat (food is spendy here in Kauai, I can at least avoid the bad stuff)
take a pre-workout supplement, and a good protein powder.
I have access to a weight set, and thought about the "perfect pushup" gadgets for home use and avoiding wrist injury.
Lotsa pushups, crunches, dips, pull ups, etc. I have pals who can
help with the workout side of things.
Prework out supplement:
thinking N.O. Xplode, Black Powder, or BSN's Volumaizer.
The Volumaizer sounds best, because someone showed me how it's
got the amino acids needed to break down the protein powder I'll
be taking and it's a good booster for pre-workout.
Obviously I have no clue. That's the problem...there's so much market, hype, and HGH laden models, and opinions of pals,
vitamin store workers, and everything I really don't know WHAT
is true anymore. I have to go off something...but what?
What I think want is something to really give me a good boost,
not be too awful for my body, and not give me the sh!tters.
Something that will help with recovery, and something that
will help make use of the protein shake afterwards.
Not really into the idea of Creatine and constantly needing to
take it. Am I wrong in this? (ie steering clear of "Perfect Storm" powder)
It also needs to be available online for a REALLY good price.
Black Powder? N.O. Xplode? Volumaizer? Universal Animal Paks?
For Proteins I want something my body can break down and USE,
something without a ton of sugar, with a decent amount of
vitamins and minerals, and preferably not taste like toilet paper.
Also, if it was available for a screaming deal online I'd be tempted
to use it. Muscle Milk, Monster Milk, other? Maybe a good berry flavor?
Also, someone told me after using up the NOX/Black Powder
to try a switch and add Testex pills to the mix (but to break into
it all slowly, especially the Testex).
So can you all recommend a good booster pre work out in the
$30-$40 range, and a good protein powder in that range?
also tell me where to get and WHY?
is any of this realistic? What kind of time table is expected to add 10-15 pounds of muscle on a 3X a week work out?
thanks so much!
