    I am looking into going back to the gym regularly. and i want to gain some weight. I eat regular 3 meals a day, and i weigh 140 to 145lbs, at height for 5'8. I want to gain another 10 to 15lbs. what type of supplements should i take during the day, some sort of protein shakes maybe?

    Any advice would help. thanks

    protien shakes are all pretty much the same shit, buy the cheapest it wont make the difference in winning the Olyimpia or anything :drool: Use dpsnutrition.com they have the best prices typically.

    I'd recommend steel cut oats, NO-XPLODE, and curls. *Shitloads* of curls. I'm talking curl until it hurts to masturbate. Then curl some more.

    should i bother with the protein shake or should i just eat more food throughout the day?

    i m reading those opt whey shakes, it says each serving is like 120 calories, which doesnt sound like that much..

    what the holy hell, Protein shakes are for Protein!

    just eat more don't waste your money on supplements cause it doesn't sound like you're ready to need anything other than food

    If you're looking for opinions on Whey my vote is for Optimum Nutrition Strawberry but who gives a shit cause they are all pretty much the same

    do some research man. all the answers you need are in the stickies. don't expect people to spoon feed you everything. if you can't even spend a little time doing some research then it sounds like you aren't dedicated at all. i suggest you don't even bother with the gym.

    I loved how the beginning of this thread played out...

    -Hey I wanna get big and strong. What do I need to Do?

    -Read the Stickies

    -What protein powder should I buy

    - Its in the stickies, read the stickies

    -I DONT WANT TO READ THE STICKIES, NOW WHAT PROTEIN SHAKE SHOULD I BUY

    and it goes on from there...


    Aren't there consequences for not reading the stickies??
