Got to Cut Back on My Supp Budget

So my usual supplementation has been this:

3o mins prior: 1 Scoop Surge Workout Fuel
2 Scoops Surge Recovery

During: 1 scoop Surge Workout Fuel

Post: 2 Scoops Surge Recovery w/ 2 scoops Grow! Whey

I need to cut back on spending so much money on these supplements since I am working out 4 days a week. What can I do that will cut my budget but still give me gains that are comparable.

I am 6 foot 3, 206 lbs.

Since you’re using Surge Recovery prior to, and Surge Workout Fuel prior to and during training, you don’t need Surge Recovery afterward.

I guess it could even be cut back to Surge Recovery pre/during and Grow! Whey after?

I’d rather go with Surge Workout Fuel prior and during and Surge Recovery after if forced to go that far.

gatorade!

Yup!

Instead of Surge post-workout you can have a scoop of whey protein (which is dirt cheap) and any damn simple carb you like - OJ, grape juice, soda, Gatorade, Gatorade powder, waxy maize, other carb powders, low-fat chocolate milk (gasp!). I like a can of tuna and a glass of OJ sometimes for post-workout.

For mid-workout, it’s the same shit, albeit no can of tuna! Whey and a simple carb. That’s it!

Please refer to my “Bodybuilding Bible” thread in the bodybuilding forum.

For post-workout, you can also be daring - fuck the shake and walk next door to the Chinaman for some steamed chicken and white rice!
