    Post ON Gold Standard vs. GNC Amplified Wheybolic Extreme 60

    Hi All,

    I have recently been looking into getting a premium whey protein supplement to aid me with gains and recovery after my workouts. I went to gnc the other day(hate all you want, I get 30% discount...) looking to buy a 5lb tub of ON's Gold standard and the rep there tried to sell me on their Amplified Wheybolic Extreme 60, saying it's the best stuff they sell in the store. They claim it has the most bcaas per serving and is the best hydrowhey you can get on the market. Well, I decided to do a little research before making any rash (and stupid) decisions to figure out which was truly the best bang for your bug. The first MAJOR difference I found between the two supplements is the serving size. Wheybolic is 79g (scoops) per serving and Gold Standard is 29g (1 scoop) per serving. Well, as you can all see, the Wheybolic can claim to have more of anything it f'ing wants per serving because its serving size is bigger. So, what I decided to do is break down each of the acclaimed recovery and muscle building components into Per Gram amounts (grams of protein/grams of product, grams of Leucine/gram, etc...) Here are the results:

    GNC’s Wheybolic_________________________________ON’s Gold Standard

    Calories: 3.5 cal/grams_________________________Calories: 4.13 cal/gram
    Fat: .012/gram__________________________________Fat: .034/gram
    Protein: .76/gram_______________________________Protein: .83/gram (83% protein) WINNING
    Arginine: 45.8 mg/gram__________________________Arginine: 17.4 mg/gram
    Alanine: 36.6 mg/gram___________________________Alanine: 40.7 mg/gram WINNING
    Aspartate: 82.3 mg/gram
    ________________________________________________As partic Acid: 86.5 mg/gram
    Cystine: 18.6 mg/gram WINNING___________________Cystine: 17 mg/gram
    Glutamine: 130.7 mg/gram________________________Glutamine: 140.8 mg/gram WINNING
    Glycine: 11.8 mg/gram___________________________Glycine: 14.2 mg/gram WINNING
    Histidine: 14.5 mg/gram
    Isoleucine: 49.8 mg/gram________________________Isoleucine: 54.2 mg/gram WINNING
    Leucine: 98.3 mg/gram WINNING___________________Leucine: 87.3 mg/gram
    Lysine: 61 mg/gram______________________________Lysine: 77 mg/gram WINNING
    Methionine: 15.2 mg/gram________________________Methionine: 17 mg/gram WINNING
    Phenylalanine: 21.4 mg/gram_____________________Phenylalanine: 25.8 mg/gram WINNING
    Proline: 53.7 mg/gram___________________________Proline: 62.9 mg/gram WINNING
    Serine: 36.5 mg/gram____________________________Serine: 38.8 mg/gram WINNING
    Threonine: 55.2 mg/gram_________________________Threonine: 57 mg/gram WINNING
    Tryptophan: 13.2 mg/gram________________________Tryptophan: 13.9 mg/gram WINNING
    Tyrosine: 22 mg/gram____________________________Tyrosine: 24.2 mg/gram WINNING
    Valine: 43.6 mg/gram____________________________Valine: 49 mg/gram WINNING
    L-Carnitine: 6.3 mg/gram

    So, as you all can see, on a per gram basis, Gold Standard BLOWS Wheybolic out of the water. Some may claim that the the isolate and hydrowhey mix in Wheybolic is better than the isolate, concentrate, and hydrowhey mix in Gold Standard. Since Gold Standard is 83% protein and Wheybolic is 76%, I'll take the added concentrate to my isolate, hydrowhey mix. The last comparison is price. If you don't have the gnc gold card (or access to 30% off like I do), there's no reason to even consider Wheybolic. Right now, here is how much it would cost me at gnc with my discount and buy one get one 50% off:

    Wheybolic________________________________________G old Standard

    $69.29 for two 3 lb tubs_________________________$68.99 for two 5 lb tubs

    SO_______________________________________________S O

    $11.55/lb._______________________________________$6.89/lb WINNING!!!

    Lemme know if this helped out guys, this is my first REAL post that contributes to this site so all the replies help.
