I just recently started working out again after goin to the gym on and off for a year or so but not really stickin to it after goin for a few years straight. I have a fast metabolism and my main goal is to gain muscle and weight specifically, as opposed to just getting toned/stronger.
My question is, when it comes to gaining weight when working out, which is more important, calories or protein? Im specifically interested as far as a post workout protein shake. I used to drink optimum weigh with BCAAs which gave me all the protein I needed and amino acids, but not many calories. Should i be drinking something like Surge recovery instead with more calories? or Muscle Milk? Im a little out dated with all the new drinks.
thanks in advance
