    Do you guys like Isopure zero carb protein power or do you prefer othersm --- I use that and casein at night time and see consistent results but have been looking for other opinions.

    I never have used any pre workout supplements but have been thinking about this as well to maximize my performance in the gym -- any suggestions

    I use ISOPURE, it is the best protein mix on the market. It makes an awesome meal replacement shake when mixed with pineapple juice, strawberries and a banana. You can also mix either blueberries or blackberries with a banana, pineapple juice and ISOPURE protein. I use either the vanilla or the strawberry flavored ISOPURE protein.icon_biggrin.gif

    I use a flavorless, unsweetened whey from canadianprotein which I buy in a 45lbs bulk box. Isopure is just an overpriced version of what canadianprotein offers.

    Isopure recently reformulated, so check to see how the product has changed.

    You'll get as many opinions about protein as you have lifters. Biggest thing in any of them is to avoid those that amino spike. After that, it's the blends and quality of ingredients.

    I myself use myprotein from the UK. Like ^^ with Canadian products, those from outside the US generally have a bit more quality control, as they are regulated far more strictly than US firms.

    As for preworkouts, setting aside those with amphetamine in them, all preworkouts are is caffeine, vit-b complex, and raw aminos. Perhaps a bit of creatine. If you like the convenience of powder fine, but you'll get the same energy and pump from strong coffee and simple carbs with salt.

    My coach is a WBFF pro, and he has salty potato chips, twizzlers candy, and espresso as his preworkout. SRS. Better pump than I've ever gotten from a pre- powder.

    Well, regardless of what brand you buy, straight wheys and caseins should always be zero-carb. They should always be just the milk protein with an artificial zero-carb/cal sweetener.

    RoadbikeRob suggested meal replacement proteins (MRPs), which contain simple carbs, hence it's a whole "meal". You can take this immediately before/after as well as during a lift (not any other time of day, IMO). For immediately before/after and during lifting, I just do whey shakes with a cookie or a wee bit of chocolate milk (for the sugar).

    I've tried Isopure before, and I like their products, but I'm not a regular. For whey, I just get Vitamin Shoppe's store brand. For casein, I've been taking this one lately.

    The isolate gives me 28g of protein in a 30g portion while the concentrate gives me 25g in the same portion. I used the isolate in previous diets but in the current one the concentrate is good enough. Canadian protein offers both.

    I buy from them too. Concentrate is better if you don't have any lactose intolerance issues. Mmmm...immunoglobins.

    I go with the grass fed to boost CLA intake.

    ^

    45lbs of the concentrate is 314$ (399CDN) while 25lbs of the isolate costs anywhere from 227$ (289CDN) to 275$ (349CDN). You can buy smaller amounts but as I'm a regular user I get a better deal buying the large bulks.
