    Whey powder

    I use SiS Rego Recovery after most rides (2 hours +), my query is about whey powder being added to the SiS Rego Recovery drink,
    the reason being is that as a vegetarian I sometimes feel that I lack in the protein department, so would it be beneficial to add a couple of scoops of whey powder to my recovery drink to boost my protein intake?
    Thanks

    hiya bud,

    whey protein is best had by its self rather than mixed in with something else, its designed to get in your system by its self so adding something else will drag out the process. Adding some whey to your diet will not do any harm, but you wont notice anything unless you have it every day 3/4 times a day.

    You don't need to buy the likes of maxi muscle as there very expensive you get very little for the money and your just paying for the advert's. If you do go down this route find a local shop for it all rather than supermarkets and dont get the one from holland & barrets.

    Also apart from the added protein muscle fibres will recover from 5days to 3.

    Thanks mate
    yeah I forgot to mention I dont want a muscle mass type product, just something to help recover.
    would you advise ditching the Rego Recovery and just using a whey powder after rides?
    thanks

    Try this site for protein, no fancy adverts/packaging/gimmicks, just protein powder, cheap too. There are a number of different "mixes" and there should be something on here for you if you want it. Gets decent reviews when you have a hunt around online.

    hiya connieboy,

    when you say you don't want a mass gainer type and just a recovery, there actually the same thing. The thing that helps you recover is the whey protein. So what I'd do is get a normal protein powder and just use that, its best that you know what your using when your going to use more than one on a day to day basis some ingredients in these powders can be very harmful if you have too much, such as creatine too much of this and you will wreck your liver so be careful if product one has creatine that product two doesn't have it.

    best of find a private local protein shop or a private weights gym that sell protein tubs and they'll sell you just what you need. I've always found that these people would rather give good advise over a sale compared to highstreet shops.

    heres a link to the make protein I use, the page will take you to a simple protein without the mass gainer parts so it would be alot less heavy on your stomach.

    its also the shop i sue too but they do online too.
