Ok, to start, yes I've read the sticky's, yes I've done searches, and yes, I'm still VERY confused. The only supplements I've ever really taken (aside from multi's, fish oil, multi B's, vitamin C's), are Whey Protein, and Creatine. The only way I've ever taken these 2 supplements is - Creatine before workout, protein after my workout. Then I started reading here. :redface: I'm interested in a good TrueProtein.com mix... but I need a little bit more then just "30% malto, 30% dextro, etc.". I really need some basic understanding. Should I be taking a pre-WO mixture, and a different post? Or is there a good mixture that will work for both? Should I be taking protein and creatine in addition to a TP mix? I've read MadMick's posts here - http://www.sherdog.net/forums/f15/new-my-true-protein-custom-pwo-formula-382736.html - but its honestly just such an overwhleming amount of information to someone who doesnt even understand the basics, and didn't go past grade 10 science! Any help would be great guys, with the main necessity being a good mixture that will help accomplish my goals in the gym (Strength/Power lifting) Thanks in advance, and I promise any information you give, will be read, and appreciated!
