Guys as far as Whey vs Isolate goes. The price difference between a 5lb tug is significant but you have to remember that tub of Isolate has WAY more protein in it, pound for pound and gram for gram Isolate is better. With out doing a complete mathimatical breakdown Id say they arent from off from eachother with Isolate possibly being a better bang for your buck. Add to that that Isolate is a better quality protein and digests beter for most and Isolate is a far superior option.
Bud, the guy is 20yrs old.... he's no doubt spent a great deal of cash on his gear, and we all know how expensive decent quality meat, fish and chicken are....
I'm simply saying that he doesn't need to break the bank with his protein powder.
Obviously if he is brewstered and has rich parents - go out and buy the best on the shelf - but if not, a solid whey concentrate would do just fine.
EDIT: WTF am I on about?
He hasn't even mentioned his age - or if he is running gear!
Man, this contest prep must be wrecking my head... apologies all round - I'm getting my threads mixed up lol
