    What's the website you use for protein, I think you left that out haha. As far as caffeine I don't mind it, as long as I don't take it after 12pm. I'm trying to switch my workouts back to 7am, so caffeine is definitely a plus to get me through the workout and work day. Probably gonna make my own though. for 250g of the two things @ThunderCookies mentioned it was like 20-25 bucks.

    What kind of flavor do you like. I personally have had every single one of there's

    Here's my top 5 list

    1. Mocha (simply great)
    2. Cinnamon roll (mixes will with anything)
    3. Salted caramel ( do you really need a reason)
    4. Banana (tastes like banana lady taffy)
    5. Strawberry ( great in oats or muffins or with yogurt for a sweet desert)

    I've only had chocolate (notvery good from any brand I've had) and strawberry. The strawberry I've got right now is pretty good but expensive as fuck. Your list sounds good minus banana

    I love a good smoothie but I'm so damn lazy that's the last thing I want to do after a workout haha. I used to use milk for my protein shakes after but now I just use water cuz it's one less step haha. The strawberry I have is really good. Not an overpowering taste and goes down easy.

    No sauna at this gym. Just hit the stair stepper for 15 mins pre training, 12 sets of 4 squats, leg press, extensions, hammy curls, calves, then 20 mins of stairs post training. I'm dead, but I feel better.

    I don't have one of them bullets. Also don't have space with my current living situation. Looking for a new job and apartment and I'll definitely be setting up something similar.

    Dafuq happened to this thread?! Multiquote inbound :crapstorm:

    6'5" 175? Did you have to walk around with rocks in your pockets to keep the wind from blowing you away? Kidding. At that height, you're going to be eating at least 3000 calories a day (I'd guess even more) to gain weight. I'm 5'11'' and I have to eat around 3700 calories to put on mass, although I also weigh more than you lol.

    ^this. 99.9999999% of supplements are total bullshit or the returns are so minimal that they aren't worth it. Protein, creatine, caffeine.

    Creatine monohydrate. Creapure is a good brand to look for. It's that German shit. That good shit.



    I agree. Food > supps

    Meal prep is key. You seriously don't have time to make a pb&j? Not even the night before? I work full-time, attend law school, go to the gym 4-5 days a week, and still have time to prep 42 meals per week. It takes like 2 hrs per week to do. I've noticed not having that shit ready is when I slip, too. "No chicken to eat? Fuck, might as well heat up one of those corn dogs." Also, I try to keep food with me 100% of the time. For instance, Friday, the wife and I went to a concert. By the time we got out, I was starving. Luckily, I had a pre-made shake waiting in the car. I was talking about stopping by Krystal's or something, but I pounded that shake and it filled me up. Crisis averted. Prep is key.

    Keto is retarded unless your body just hates carbs. Your brain runs on carbs...why the hell would you starve your brain of its fuel? However, low carb/keto does have its place in competition/photo shoot/weigh-in/etc...Carbs make you hold water. Going low/no carb can shed 10-20 lbs of water in like 10 days.

    Jesus, do you rent a room on the top floor of the Bellagio?

    Working on it.
    Never noticed a gym thread in here before so what's up everyone? I have owned all 3 generations of Tacoma, driving a white 2017 TRD OR DCSB 6-speed manual at the moment. I am a active duty Marine and workout steady 5 days a week and currently stationed in Virginia. I try and stay away from cardio as I am a hard gainer. Currently 5'10" and 185lbs. Always looking for new workout ideas and supplement suggestions. I just turned dirty 30 so that sucks. I also ride street bikes and race motocross , I like guns and hunting amongst many other $ consuming hobbies. Great to meet everyone.

    Damn. Why would you go from Canton to Commyfornia?

    So glad I live in a small town where shit is still (relatively) inexpensive. Everyone from ATL and Florida moves up here, which makes shit more expensive than it used to be, but I'm on 4 acres with 1460 sq ft 2 bed 2 bath with a full unfinished basement and my mortgage is only $917/month.
