Just had a quick announcement for you. They say it’s VERY important to have a support group so why is fitness any different?

FACT: It’s not.

Basically, a community based forum to discuss bodybuilding topics can be one of the most overlooked steps in any goals you are trying to achieve. Having people to reach out to when you’ve got questions, or need advice is extremely important.

Have you heard the phrase, “Strength in numbers?”

Here’s the deal…browse the forum. If you like what you see, join up, it’s totally free. It’s moderated and we do not allow spam posts, flames, personal attacks and things we wouldn’t like happening in our own house.

And it’s well moderated by a team of fitness and bodybuilding guys and gals that love the sport. They are there to help.

Considering the amount of information in this forum, that is a CRAZY deal, definitely worth checking out.

I’d highly recommend at least taking a quick glance and seeing if the forum offers something of value to you!

Cytosport Pure Protein

There’s no need for a long drawn out review with me telling you how great this tasted. Maybe you’d like me to describe Cytosport Pure Protein in terms of a wine review?Cytosport Pure Protein Line of Great Tasting Whey Isolate and No Sugar Protein Drinks Savory hints of raspberry and almond with a green apple flavor on the way down? Forget it. Here’s the scoop.

Cytosport released a Protein line of drinks with all kinds of flavors. At the time I’m posting this it comes in Tangerine, Tropical and Watermelon.

Nutritional Facts:

Many fitness professionals will agree that it’s imperative to always get your protein in with every meal. And after a workout is a darn good place to do it. While whole foods are always recommended, there’s times when you simply can’t. That’s when a drink like Pure Protein comes into play. It’s a super quick way to get in whey protein isolates quickly and with a great taste.

Why whey protein isolates?

Quick absorption. Perfect for building muscle. A primary choice for any bodybuilder. And plenty of it. None of those 5g protein water things. They are fine for some but when you are serious about nutrition, you’ll probably end up needing a bit more protein than a mass marketed product is able to give you.

Taste:

Unlike many other products, I found the taste to be extremely good. Since there’s no sugar alcohols, I didn’t get any upset stomach effects. It was very sweet which works for me since I have somewhat of a sweet tooth. For those who just don’t like overly sweet products, you may need to mix it with water to cut down on the overall sweet taste or sip it slowly. Personally I had no issues as I’m a bit of a sweet lover in that regard.

Suggested Use:

As a bodybuilder myself, I’m all for using dietary supplements when necessary. Maybe to break up a routine of a shake, real foods or use it as a sweet treat if I’m on a cutting cycle.  The recommendation was to use the product after a hard workout.  Again, I found that using it when necessary if I wasn’t close to home or wasn’t going straight to a place where I could get in a full post-workout meal turned out to work well.  An small but noticeable plus was the container was plastic.  Other such products are in glass.  When I plunk down my gym bag, it’s nice to know it’s not going to shatter inside.

Overall Recommendation: 5 Starts for a great tasting, quick and easy to drink high protein drink.
