THE BEST CREATINE, THE BEST WEIGHT GAINER, THE BEST PROTEIN

I hear so many differant opinions through friends and on here too..

What do you think is the BEST?

Creatine: ??

Weight-Gainer: ??

Protein: ??

I used some weight gainer mix from GNC, 5 pounds, 5 servings.. gained 10 pounds off it, just wish it had more servings.. I'm trying to gain weight as quick as possible, what are the best ways to do this? I hear Carrot Cake has crazy calories..

My friend is one of those know-it-all bodybuilders.. he says that all creatines are the same just in differant names and little added differences here and there. He said not to look on review sites because companys pay people to write good reviews. I heard alot of good things about NO-Xplode, is it the best?

And about Proteins.. I hear so much about Muscle Milk, is it really the best Protein out there??

By the way, my bench SUCKS. And my muscles get tired and very tight pretty easily while at the gym.. any suggestions?

In case you were wonderin-- I am going for the look a little more than the strength but strength is a huge issue without a doubt. I have always been a skinny guy, I eat alot but my metabolism is at hyper-speed.

Please reply, thanks for all your help!
-John

    If you do push ups that can actualy help your bench.

    From what i ben hearing; Muscle milk and Universlas ISO whey are the best protiens(edited ). NO-Xplode helps get your pumped and energy to lift which may help you work out better etc...

    I'm still looking at weight gainers atm so cant tell you which is the best or think is the best.

    You should take a look at these 2 links here

    http://www.discussbodybuilding.com/MRP/m_109098/tm.htm
    http://www.discussbodybuilding.com/For_Gaining_Mass/m_111173/tm.htm

    There is also a site or so i found through a link on theseboards some where called t-nation.com or something that has good work out tips etc.. You might want to find that site and look at its hypertrophy articles.

    ON isn't the best protein,  it's the most popular.  The ingredients in the 100% ON Whey protein you all love so much.   (Protein blend (whey protein isolate, whey protein concentrate)
     
     
    Universals ISO Whey is far better because it has all Protein Isolates  (Ultra Iso Whey contains only ultrafiltrated whey isolates leaving you with a true protein)  No fillers or blends or concentrate.

    I'm going to the GNC and Vitamin World today..

    What should I get? I'm looking to build muscle mass. I dont have much fat on me as of now. I have been gaining weight while working out..I was 138 now I'm up to 155ish in a month.

    I was thinking about getting Muscle Milk and either NO-Xplode or Shock Therapy. Recommend anything else? What about a weight-gainer?? I'm trying to get upto 190. PLEASE HELP!!! Thanks alot!

    To me it doesnt realy seem like you need a weight gainer lol. you weigh more than me already. And just being on some sort of protien and creatine while working out will help you gain weight. Also if you eat enough. But if you do need to add more calories you might get a weight gainer Or just eat more.

    You could also just ask the employees what you should get, they should be knowledgeable in their products.

    Depends on what you are looking to do.   If you want a cool container a great tasting drink and something that will give you good results and you can brag to all your friends go for No Xplode.  If you want something that will last you longer is cheaper in cost far more powerful and will help you lift heavier and is more effective with better ingredients and excellent results go for the Shock Thearpy.  The No Xplode is great stuff, but Shock Thearpy is better and has alot more balls to it and you don't need more than one scoop of it to do you right.    This is how I would rate them and compare them both.
     
    No Xplode---  A great tasting Pre workout drink (Fruit Punch) They are coming out with new flavors soon with the new CEM3 No Xplode with grape, Lemon Lime and Raspberry which I obviously never tried so I can't rate the taste on those, but the Fruit punch taste great, Or at least I think so.  The No Xplode will give you great mental focus will get you pumped up real good and you will see some strength increases, but nothing out of this world, you will just feel good and hyped on it and it will make working out fun.  You will swear up and down on this stuff by the taste and the feeling it gives you alone for awhile and then the effects might say bye bye to you and you will see yourself bumping up the dose to get the same feeling you once had on 1-2 scoops.   I took 4 scoops at the end of it, which I wouldn't recommend it's to much No Xplode to be taking and sometimes I felt a little sick taking to much this stuff is over hyped also.   Try a jug of it, it will work well for you.
     
    Shock Thearpy--- A good tasting pre workout drink, nothing out of this world, but it doesn't taste bad or anything. At first I didn't like the taste now I am use to it and like it. This stuff will give you more energy than No Xplode and I believe it will help you to lift heavier than No Xplode it has better ingredients with a good anti-oxident complex you won't find in any other pre workout supplement.  The pumps are comparable to No Xplode, about the same.  The Mental focus from this isn't on No Xplodes level I gotta admit, but it's not that big of deal when Shock Exceeds in everything else and you don't need to use as much of it to do more for you.  This product really works and lives up to it's claims and makes a difference while working out.  I love the stuff if there was anything stronger for pre workout supplement drinks I would swear it would be illegal.  It's a serious workout drink that doesn't play it delivers for you.  I am almost through a whole jug of it and it works as good now as it did when I first bought it.  This stuff has me wanting to workout everyday also, gives me so much energy, even days when I a tired or sore or just wore out this stuff brings me back to life and pushes me right through a good workout.  I haven't had a bad workout in 2 weeks, every workout seems to get better.  This isn't no Bull$hit Man. I been working out 4 days a week for the longest time it was plenty for me.  I find myself every since I used Shock Thearpy working out 5 days a week with ease.  So Serious.

    Sup.....if you ask me, different things work for different people man.  Try not depend on "other peoples" recommendations via "the computer"........go to the gym, find a guy that you want to look like and speak with him.  actually "See" the results of a person before taking advice from them so you'll know for sure that they're "practicing what they preach...." feel me ?
     
    I use to be heavy into lifting.  But I got from 170 lbs. to a good 215 lbs. in 7 months.  (honest)
     
    Creatine - Regular Creatine Monohydrate (GNC product) cost about $22.00 a bottle....took it twice a day, once in the morning, and once after working out.
     
    Weight Gainer - Isopure, took it 3 times a day (6 scoops per serving).....my first serving would be taken with 3 raw eggs.......and my last serving would be taking with 3 raw eggs.
     
    No2 - now a days Nitric Oxide can be purchased much cheaper than the regular No2 Bottle, so just serach around, I know BSN has nitric oxide for a little cheaper.....none the less I used these 3 products for 7 months, hit the gym 4 times a day, and recieved massive gains.......I'll be sure to add a picture so you can actually "see" the results.......but for the most part, I got my knowledge from people at the gym that I wanted to look like !!!! 
     
    this was June of 2004

     
     
    I then entered the world of Modeling, and they told me that I was too big to wear any of their clothen, so I then had to go back down to 170 lbs or less.......so I stopped lifting and stopped taking suppliments and just did resistance trainning (push ups, pulls ups, jogging, sit ups, etc.) probably liftend a little free weights once or twice or week (give or take) and this is where I am at today........Most individuals would call this the perfect body (although I do lack a little "symmetry" in my abdominal area).....but as you can see, most of the weight stayed on.......I was expecting the water weight (creatine) to deflate in wich it did, but this is 2006 (2 years later) without much heavy lifting.......
     

     
     
    I still take Isopure til' this day........and may take creatine every now and then, and even "extreme MRP" at GNC.  But all these creatine  or protien products (not going to name any names) priced at 50 to 70 dollars, etc. are some BS if u ask me.......stick with the basics and just be patient with the results, watch what you eat, and ask somebody that already has the results your looking for.........Good luck !!!!

    You can ask the Guys at the gym you wanna look like what they take, but that doesn't mean you're gonna look like those guys different genetics body shapes and sizes.   Somebody that is involved with this site as much as I am and actually review how good my workout day is would be as good of advice you would get from some yoko at a gym.  I review Shock Thearpy and give it 5 stars, it seems others who try it are saying the same thing about the product also.  Different supplements work for different People and some Supplements just don't work period and some supplements do work just certain people respond better to them is all.   Alot of guys that we really wanna look like use Steroids also so I would watch advice from them.

    Help. Can someone who has taken or heard about these products give me feedback. I am 5'7 140 lbs work out 3 times a week and I'm trying to gain at least 10 lbs of muscle, lean if possible, and I need more of you guys info on the products that I bought today at GNC. I bought Pumptech (nitric oxide transducer by Muscletech), and Anavol (muscle cell volumizer by Nxcare). Will this make a great combo and have you guys heard if these product works or is worth it and I can keep the gains I get or I lose them easily once I stop. Also how does this compare to the NO2 and CE2 by Ed Byrd which is a little more expensive but maybe work better? I am also thinking about picking up Leukic? ANybody tried this and does it work? Side effects? Please help me with my supplement plan.

    Cross seems to me like a pure mesomorph, easy to gain muslce and big boned etc...

    I have to ask, why 3 raw eggs? I hear different things, some say eat some raw eggs. others say, just cook them because its the same thing either way. is there realy a difference in eating them raw than cooked?

    And you work out 4 times a day? and you take that after all work outs or after each work out in the day?

    And finding some one you want to look like wont realy help you. Every one is a different body type, most are a mix. You seem to be more of a pure meso imo... im more of a pure ectomorph. Why i think i am? because i was 18 and about 98-100 lbs. I ate a lot of food and im the lightest one out of the family, every one else in my family is at least over 124 lbs, my dad is like 190.

    Thats alot dont you think? First off, how old are you? Just wondering.. I'd say chose either HMB or ZMA. I wouldnt do both.. I dont see a need to.. This stuff is going to hit your wallet hard per month.

    he sold crack at night? lol

    i think he meant 4 times a week...4 times a day is insane and leaves you no time for your body to repair..unless your taking some glutamine like crazy.
