Howdy. It's been a while since I lifted seriously but I've been getting back into it for the last 2 months or so. I've had some pretty significant gains in strength and have dropped from a bile-inducing 24% BF to a mere stomach-turning 20%.
I want to continue building muscle and shedding fat. My long-term BF% goal is single-digits.
I have been using creatine and protein powder. The protein is all gone and the creatine (which I don't really like because it has too much sugar) is low.
I'm looking at getting some Biotest products next. Specifically the Metabolic Drive protein, German Creatine, and maybe HOT-ROX.
My question is this...since I have a lot of fat to burn I'm working at a calorie deficit. Being at a calorie deficit, am I getting the intended benefit from the protein or is it going to be simply burned as fuel?
Essentially, should I buy and use the Metabolic Drive or just continue to shed fat and then bulk and add protein later when I'm less blubbery?
