Nothing wrong with supplementing Protein in your diet mate. It wont affect your heart.
 
A revovery shake can mean many things it really does depend on what you need. I spose standard would be a decent protein something around 80% you could add some carbs into that if you wanted.
 
dont buy from Sainsburys though its far to expensive. Weve just been posting in the offers thread some fantastic deals at the moment . 5kg of WPC protein around £35 you just cant get a better price at the moment.

Hes just asking about protein in general I think hes calling it recovery just because its heard about taking it post workout.

Hey Guys
 
Thanks for the reply regarding the link its - http://www.sainsburys.co.uk/shop/gb/groceries/sci-mx-100%25-whey-protein--chocolate-908g
 
and also - http://www.sainsburys.co.uk/shop/gb/groceries/sports-nutrition-supplements/usn-100%25-whey-protein-chocolate-908g
 
I've also found another one from asda its - http://groceries.asda.com/asda-webstore/landing/home.shtml?cmpid=ahc-_-ghs-d1-_-asdacom-dsk-_-hp#/product/910001022452
 
and also morrisons this actually says on the tub recover + rebuild its - http://groceries.morrisons.com/webshop/product/Maxi-Nutrition-Promax-Chocolate/118610011?prevPageIndex=0
 
I rather buy from supermarket as it saves on delivery fees and they are basically all local to me in a 5 miles radius.i wasent sure what was the best as my mate just said he used to get some recovery protein powder from Tesco's.and he said his muscles got bigger from it. im new to all this protein so not even sure what its all about and if its any good but also don't want to spend a fortune!
 
Cheers lads.

The problem is mate, it's a false economy buying at the supermarket to forego delivery fees.
 
For example the 2nd link above, USN at £30 for 908g. That's crazy money.
As is Body Supreme at £20 for 908g and Maxi Nutrition £22.42 per kilo.
 
Take a look at the offers thread - the latest whey offer for example is from MP: £35 for 5 kilos. £2 delivery charge - total price £37. So for an extra £7 and 2 days wait you're getting 5x the amount of product.

Yes mate I get what you mean now and reading what you have said and how you have broken it down sounds right in what your saying! I will have a look at the other thread you mentioned.

The offers thread is the best place to check, all of the advertising companies on here, body building warehouse, my protein, bulk powders and so on provide great quality products.
 
also "i wasent sure what was the best as my mate just said he used to get some recovery protein powder from Tesco's.and he said his muscles got bigger from it"
 
your mates muscles didnt suddenly get bigger from just taking protein and if you think thats going to occur you need to think again.

Miles cheaper than the supermarkets so I'd forget them completely now that you've found the offers thread and MT.
 
Increase in protein can lead to muscle gain depending on how your overall diet and training look.
 
Using protein shakes are an easy way of getting a dose of protein into you quickly i.e post work out, take with you to work or place of study etc.

I'm not sure what you expect it to do?

To be honest Robert I don't know what I was expecting it to do as im all new to this protein stuff ! like I said I got told from a mate about recovery protein and that it gets you muscle gain that's all I know and I have heard of whey protein which is a big name not heard of any other make or if there any good.
 
I wouldent say im on a diet of such but we do eat healthy eat a lot of vegetable's, salads, fish, steaks etc we have semi skimmed milk and we don't have hardly any salt in or on anything and we don't have hardly anything with sugar training wise I go mon,tues,thrus,fri sat for about 1 hour to a hour and a half do 20 mins cardio from treadmill to bikes do abit of Ab Stretches and then do weights and use the multi gym, kettlebells dumbells etc 
 
All I know is protein from them big tubs everyone seems to use so I thought I would get on the band wagon and see what its all about after my mate saying about it.

We can all vouch for the offers in the offers thread .
 
We all police it as far as quality goes.
 
As far as protein and the gym it can be quite strange at first watching people all walking about with these shakers shaking away. Do half of them know what they are doing? probably not weve had some horror stories on here .
 
The reality is your Muscles do need protein to grow how you get that protein is the conundrum we all have to work out. You will hear a million different replies some say Food only , some are supplement crazy id say somewhere inbetween youll find a level.
 
I would start looking at your diet and supplementing with a shake straight after training im not making any claims about windows of opportunity or whatever its called but its a good time to get feeding the muscles as you probably wont have eaten whilst training.
 
Then in future look at your overall protein intake and adjust it accordingly you may need more you may want less. Read as much as you can on the forum.

no I don't eat before training redwing well sometimes have a orange an hour before or a coffee then have my tea after workout as I go training at 5 to 5.30pm till normally about 7pm
 
ive just found this but can get it 49p cheaper on body tone warehouse,but this is the one im talking about from this site -  http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/shop/epic-recovery-1-28kg not seen any reviews at all over the internet is it any good ? I mean never heard of muscleXcess before only heard of whey.
 
I understand everyone has there own opinions and I guess its different for everyone I understand its trial and error but when your spending money you want to try get the right thing to start with more so like myself as im new to all this stuff.

First offer in the offers thread mate MT10 gets 10% off at the muscle talk shop. Just enter that code at the checkout.
 
so that makes it £22.50  its free delivery from the MT shop.
 
That one has all you need in it.  Ive not had it but its all in there carbs and protein I have Muscle Xcess products and I like them.
 
You dont have to have it all in there you can buy just protein but maybe start with something like that see how you get on but id advise reading this forum and chatting to the guys. As you train more.

my own opinion is that you don't need a recovery protein after training - a decent blend and/or a meal will do just as good a job.

Thanks redwing I might just start with that one then! if you say you have had that make and its alright then it sounds good to me! what's the best flavour to go for ? and do you have to blend them ?  or can you just mix in a glass/cup with a fork or spoon ?

you can usually mix the with a spoon but get yourself a shaker, they're £2 and mix them better than a fork or spoon

I dont know what they taste like, ive got the pre workout ive not had the protein products but ive not heard anything bad about taste.I think @Aaron Hallet  may have tasted it. See if he is about
 
You will need a shaker to mix it as its a blend of proteins and carbs.
 
I would try and break it down for you but I cant see the actual ingredients list but what I can see in the description it looks decent. I think they have updated the site.
