    What is the difference between a protein powder and Amino Acid tablets?

    Hello all!

    I am a hard-core, natural bodybuilding enthusiast who is going to go "old school" and try Liver Tablets and Protein.

    One thing I am confused on though, is whether to take protein in the form of Amino Acids throughout the day, or is something like a Whey-based Protein Powder just as effective?

    Now, my undergrad is in exercise and human nutrition, so I don't need nutrition 101. I understand the Free form, BCAA, stuff. I also get the release into the bloodstream/ Whey vs. Casein timing thing, etc.

    But from a training perspective, are Amino Acid tablets superior, complementary, or outdated when compared to protein powders?

    Is there a difference, or are we essentially talking about the same thing?
