What UK readers need to know

The online discount is valid for the UK, although shipping rates will vary depending on your order (and any order over 18lbs will get charged a VAT). Shipping options for most orders would be via DHL Global Mail (8-20 days to customs, delivered by local post), or UPS – much quicker at around 7 days, although more expensive.

Whilst you’re there, have a look around, I think it’s a great resource. I lurk on the forums and read loads of the articles. Apparently the site offers a staggering 35,000+ pages of (free) information, including more than 20,000 articles and videos. There’s new content daily covering nutrition, competitions, training, supplementation, the psychological side of training and competing – and tons more. If you’re into bodybuilding, strength and conditioning, gym work or nutrition at any level, it’s a top-notch site and one you really should take a look around.

With that, I’m off to mix up my BCAAs, creatine and l-glutamine and hit the gym for a chest session! What are you supplementing with today, and why?

    Out of interest, what is your favourite pre workout and post workout supplement? I’m a big fan of the Optimum Nutrition Casein before bed and I like to use a caffine free pre workout formula such as Reflex Performance Matrix.

    Also, have you heard of a protein supplement called Carnivor by Muscle Meds? Very intriguing concept – Bioengineered Beef Protein Isolate, which is 350% more concentrated than steak. Seems to get good reviews.

      Hello there. Well, I don’t tend to use pre-WOs, particularly whilst in prep as a) I’d rather save the macros for “real” food and b) I try to get away from artificial sweeteners as they play havoc with my guts 😉 There’s a c), too – I adore a good espresso and find that an espresso just before the gym, then my l-glut and BCAAs whilst there (in my water) is fine for me. 😀

      Post-WO, again I try to get “real” food in as soon as possible. I’ll have more l-glut one way or another and if for some reason I can’t eat within 30 mins or so I’ll have some more BCAAs.

      All that said, I think my favourite preWO is Sci-MX’s Xplode – it tastes good and gives me a real boost without any horrid jitters (and I’ve tried some that have been wayyy too strong and jitter-inducing, believe me!) I haven’t used it – or any pre WO – for ages though.

      Yes i like any casein before bed (with cottage cheese when not deep in contest prep!) I’ve used myprotein’s which is fine and I love ON’s for a treat – it’s so thick and creamy, it’s like a luxury pudding!

      Not heard of the beef isolate… does it taste of beef?! I’m willing to try anything once but must admit I haven’t tried an actual meaty protein powder…. unflavoured or pea/hemp is about as daring as I’ve got!
