    So a person at school today called me a "fucking idiot" for using whey protein and said that "all it does it make you fat." He swears by Gaspari Myofusion and says that protein blends and way (whey :lol: ) better. Does his statement hold any truth?

    Lol no.

    We're in high school bro, and every kid who signs up for weight training thinks he's hot shit and knows the truth about supplements and nutrition. Most of them think that the most expensive shit = the best, and wear shin-high Nike socks.
    :rolleyes:

    There is nothing wrong with whey. Lift and use it, and let's see how he stacks up compared to you after a month or two. ;)

    well...nothing wrong with whey protein, or isolate, or anything...however, with protein blends, you have to be careful and read if they have soy protein.

    its not THAT common, but some brands do offer whey mixed with casien, mixed with isolate, mixed with soy protein.

    whats wrong with soy? its a 50/50 where some say it helps with estrogen in your body, which leads to more stored fat, which leads to man-boobs. others say that that isn't true. i say 'fuck it, i'm not taking the risk'.

    but for the most part, he is wrong (your buddy). also, tell him that gaspari is one of the higher calorie protein out there. when ON 100% whey and dymatize iso-100 offer 200-220 calories for 50 grams of protein, gaspari offers 300-330 calories for the same amount of protein. as such, higher calories help you put on weight as well....

    I think that's just GNCs version of Isopure (pro performance).
    Could be wrong though.

    Might just grab some ON 100% anyway. Seems to be tried-and-true. :yesway:

    I've had great results switching to ON 100% whey isolate. It also tastes really good and mixes well.

    Trying to mix this is like trying to mix cement.

    I bought it once, then returned it (I'm an ectomporh and I have trouble gaining weight, so I've tried tons of gainers).

    I also tried on of the other two you've posted (the blue one). The best gainer I've ever used was Real Mass by Gaspari. Very consistent, unlike Real Mass by BSN which is hit or miss every time as far as quality is concerned.


    Check out Allstar Health if you're looking into gainers or even protein powders. Ridiculously low prices and a flat rate, cheap shipping as well.

    lol, what is real mass? You mean True Mass? That shit is awful for you. And I thought nothing worked for you anyway? If nothing worked then why are you now touting what works and what doesn't?

    I think he was just trying to share some helpful advice, as it might work for someone else.

    Regardless, I think I'm just going to stick with the ON more consistently.
    A bit off-topic, but what rep count per set should I be going for if my objective is strength and mass?
    I've heard 4-8, but one of my good friends with bb experience is telling me 3x12 sets.

    Yeah I'd definitely stay 8 or below. I've actually had really good results and beaten my stubborn chest since changing to 4-6 from 6-8.

    You seem to be an angry guy.

    I never said that "nothing" works. In fact, all I've stated is that (in a thread completely unrelated to this one, in fact, so I don't know why it was brought up here) I have a very, very hard time gaining weight. I am sharing my experience with gainers.

    And no, I mean Real Mass, Gaspari:

    This is True Mass, by BSN:

    I've seen the most gains in strength doing 6-8 reps as well. I don't know why, I just seem to get more out of the set.

    I should've written that the other way round - it does kinda read as me prefering 6-8 if not concentrating haha!
    4-6 is definitely better for me on the heavier exercises.

    But yes everyone will vary!
    I prefer higher reps light weight on exercises such as lateral raises, cable flyes, leg extensions etc where you can really focus on form and get a great contraction.

    That's EXACTLY why I brought it up here. For those that didn't read all the ignorant things you wrote in the other thread (as well as the others that I haven't even gotten to yet.)

    You're a self-admitted "hard-gainer" who can't make any gains no matter what you eat- so explain to us why anyone should listen to your advice when it comes to making gains?
