I recently came across the T-Nation site and it's been very useful!
I have a question -- Charles Staley also writes an section in Best Life magazine & in the April 2006 edition, he talked about adding protein before and after a workout. His recommendation was Metabolic Drive MRP before the workout and Surge by Biotest after the workout. I was considering using this on my workout days. Has anyone used this type of setup on workout days and found it to help?
I was also intrigued by Spike as a daily supplement. The description says without the jitters of ephedrine, which is what I used to get BIG time on products that had ephedrine. Can anyone recommend this as a daily 'pick me up'? After reading the description, it sounds perfect, but so have other products I've used (not from T-Nation).
Since I am new to T-Nation, would you recommend other supplements here to check out? I am NOT looking to add 5-10 pills, drinks, etc. to my daily routine, but since I don't drink pop, coffee, etc. I don't get much caffeine stimulation that could help throughout the day.
Brief background on my workouts - I follow the Mike Mentzer methods fairly close. Currently I'm on a 1 day per week strenuous workout and 1-2 days of light cardio. Now that the weather is breaking here, golf will be added to the mix.
