    Question Are post-workouts a waste of money?

    I was thinking about picking up the JYM post-workout since I'm always so exhausted after my workouts. Does it even do anything if I'm getting enough protein in my diet?

    What is a post workout? A carbohydrate? I don’t take a post as I just go eat. But my intra consists of protein and carbs.

    These are the contents:
    L-Glutamine 3 g †
    Creatine HCl (as CON-CRET®) 2 g †
    Beta-Alanine (as CarnoSyn®) 2 g †
    L-Carnitine L-Tartrate (as Carnipure®) 2 g †
    Betaine (Trimethylglycine) 1.5 g †
    Taurine 1 g †
    L-Leucine 3.6 g †
    L-Isoleucine 1.2 g †
    L-Valine 1.2 g †
    Black Pepper (Piper nigrum) Fruit Extract (as BioPerine®)

    I don't currently take an intra, do you think it's something I should look into?

    IMO glutamine is a waste of money (no need), creatine HCL is a waste of money (just use mono powder), beta alanine is a waste of money (unless endurance athlete basically), and bcaa are a waste of money (just get your macros for the day as you should be)...betaine IDK maybe but if I was going to take it I'd take it pre I suppose.


    What is your daily calorie and carb/fat/protein intake?


    A post workout that doesn't even have carbs or protein...I don't get it.

    Basically, if you're getting adequate protein, no need for a post. Just eat

    I would save your money and invest that into more whole food sources. Make sure you're getting adequate sleep to recover. Also make sure you're getting in your total caloric intake for the day.

    Don't waste your money. Focus on nutrition and rest. That is the key to post workout recovery. Not an overpriced, bro science supplement.

    I could be wrong but I heard an unsubstantiated rumour that food manufacturers might also be illicitly making a profit from the food they manufacture. Stays on here though until I’ve had it confirmed by a secondary source. Huge if true. Could blow the food industry wide open.

    I daresay most industries were started on the basis of generating not only revenue, but profit.

    Is 20g of protein from whey protein inferior to 20g of protein from chicken breast?
