    Been using Optimum Nutrition for as long as I can remember. I love it. I assume were talking whey protein?

    no they have a powder mix called P90X Peak Recovery Formula I have been reading that its not that great has a lot of sugar. Is there anything like it that's good. I hear the Carnation Instant Breakfast are good for post workout. Michael Phelps drank it in between swims at the Olympics

    I drink a good amount of water with CL's Purple Wrath during/post workout.
    Then about 30 mins. later I eat a decent meal.
