I currently use 6 star protein, sixstarmuscle.com/products/protein/index.shtml
It’s pretty good, I think. The only problem is that 2lbs doesn’t last very long. So, my question is, are the additives in six star protein important enough to actually continue buying it? Or would I be better off buying a 4lb tub of ON (or something) and getting some micronized creatine instead? I’m pretty new to the lifting game regardless, so should I even bother buying creatine?
Creatine is good but I would never have it pre-mixed with my protein. I much prefer being able to accurately control my intake of creatine while I’m on it.
As for it being good for a beginner - yes. The upshot is increased delivery ability during workouts, reducing fatigue and allowing you to get reps in, thus stimulating the muscle fibers more than you would have without. These extra stimulations lead to actual strength and size gains, so don’t listen to anyone that says that creatine merely adds water size and should be avoided.
As usual, if you are under 18 I can’t recommend you use any supplements because you probably don’t need them yet. Just eat right and get rest.
