Hi Guys, Well its summer time and that for me is the time to hit the gym as all of the university sports stop. Previous summers I have just gone to the gym and done my thing but I really want to bulk up this summer as I am a little on the lean side. I am roughly 5 ft 10 and weight 9 Stones :s, and during fooball although I try to fight back it is far too easy t push me off the ball. So going to the gym 3-4 times a week at the moment and have a good workout planned as well as interspersing it with sporadic tennis sessions etc. I think I have that part okay however I really do not know anything about protein shakes apart from its good to drink them So the questions 1. What to buy? - there is so much out there from Whey Protein to ready made shakes and drinks that you just add to water. I have googled a lot but cant really find the best option. 2. How often to take? - Before? After? 3 times a day? Lots of contradicting stuff but from what I read After is a must and Before is advisable as well 3. What to make? - If getting something like why protein or protein powder got to make it into something right? Well thanks fo rany help that you can give appreciate it.
