Walmart Whey Protein for p90x?
Next monday will be phase 3 for me! The last month of p90x, well at least for a week then I might start again!, but for the first two months I was using Endurox r4 as a recovery drink after every workout. I couldnt make it out of town to pick up my Endurox because of the weather, so I bought Six Star Muscle Whey Protein at walmart, to use as a post workout drink. My question is, will this make me gain weight, because I dont want to gain weight at all, maybe a little bit of muscle weight but no fat weight. The endurox r4 had 52g of carbs and 13g protein and the Six Star Whey has 8g carbs and 26g protein.

So my question is, is this a good post workout drink, and will it make me gain weight?

Thanks guys

You bought a good protein powder but not necessarily a good recovery drink.

For recovery you are looking for a 4-1 carb to protein ratio. You just bought the opposite.

I've been using the Wal-Mart Whey (Bodyfortress I think) and have not been gaining weight. In fact I'm losing inches by the week. On week 7 right now!

For the recovery I've been mixing just less than a half scoop (aprox. 10g of protein) with 8 oz of grape juice (approx. 40g carbs). I feel great and the flab is disappearing.

1% chocolate milk is also a VERY good post workout drink/recovery drink...has the exact 4:1 ratio and also has some excellent nutrients!

You can use it post workout. Mix it into a 1% chocolate milk and you'll have your recovery drink.
