Puzzling Protein Choices

I’m a young athlete looking for strength (but not necessarily size) gains trying to choose between Metabolic Drive “Protein Magic,” Metabolic Drive Complete (MDC), Designer Whey, and Grow!.

Should I be using Metabolic Drive Complete if I just want strength (not looking for size) gains?
If I do use Metabolic Drive Complete, should I be using a post-workout drink as well?
Is Protein Magic significantly better than Grow! or something like Designer Whey?

I’d like to train as frequently as possible, as summer is approaching and I’ll be free, so I’ll probably be getting some BCAAs, too. Does anyone have any answers to my questions or suggestions beyond that?

Depends both are great choices one an MRP one just Protein, depends on if youll be adding rel food like carbs, fats or want something quality and easy and complete

Yes sure Surge would be great, you could use the Metabolic Drive Complete though Not the first choice

Better then Grow! etc yes and no. yes its a blend slow and fast digestinhg, very high quality etc. Grow! etc whey faster digested read the explanation of proteins in the product articles. I use both

Suggestion If choosing between a Post w/o drink and or more protein and BCAA’s at your point IMO get More protein.
