  • EAS Myoplex

    In my ESPN magazine I saw an ad for EAS Myoplex where you can try it for free. I'm interested in getting it, but I want to hear what others have thought of this product. Also, I have a few questions.

    1) It says it helps you build lean muscle after a workout, is it real muscle or is it just water? (Steroids make cells in muscles absorb water so they look bigger but aren't stronger) I don't want that to happen.

    2) So I would use this after weight lifting, running, throwing and hitting?

    3) How quick are results?

    4) What exactly is Myoplex?

    If anybody has used this, please add your input.

      EAS Myoplex is a protein drink. It doesn't build muscle buy itself. What it does is help you recover after a workout, which will welp you buil muscle faster. You take it after a workout, usually just lifting unless it's a really heavy baseball workout. It is expensive though. I use chocolate whey protein powder, skim milk, and peanut butter to make a shake, and I think it works just as good, and it is cheaper.

        What do you mean by recover after a workout? How does this help build muscle?

          Unless you're really quick to recover, strength-building workouts in-season may be too much. IMHO, you should be looking at utilizing a strength-maintaining workout. I don't see why a diet based on lean proteins and complex carbs won't suit you just fine.
          I don't know at what level you're playing, but if you're a HS or college athlete I don't see how your compacted schedule would allow you to lift heavy (to actually build muscle) and yet maintain flexibility and be free of soreness. In other words, most HS or college schedules would average 3-6 games per week; this doesn't allow for much recovery time.
          If you're really looking to build lean muscle mass, I'd save that goal for off-season strength training. Just my two cents.

            I do powerlifting and baseball and it doesn't seem to have too much of an effect on me. I come in a 6 am 4 days a week (5 rep workouts for the most part), and eating well and drinking a protein shake seems to get the job done for me. :twocents:

              No offense, but you seem really uneducated with supplements and working out in general. I suggest that you read up before you try anything. I've never tried Myoplex, but I have tried EAS protein powder, and it is quite disgusting. If you want to use protein powder, I recommend this: http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/opt/whey.html

                IronMan,

                1) Myoplex is a great product but it is basically just a meal replacement drink.
                During the course of a busy season/schedule, it provides quality nutrients that are very easily absorbed by the body. I used it between my 3 main meals as a snack.

                2) It doesn't have enough carbs to be a recovery drink. Recovery drinks/shakes need to have a 4:1 ratio of Carbs to Protein. Endurox, Champion Heavyweight Gainer, and regular chocolate milk are all very close to this ratio.

                  None taken. I know I have no idea about supplements. I know how to "workout" but not the science behind it. Not anatomy guy...
                  So will this stuff actually help me gain muscle(real muscle) if I take it after workouts?

                    Yes, but there are better options.

                    Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) or/and a Glutamine supplement taken before and after workouts will help more than just a meal replacement drink.

                      I THINK I GOT IT NOW!! If I want to gain extra muscle (real muscle) after a workout, I should use creatine. I saw a thread about creatine. Thread Should I just use the products shown on this thread if I want to get extra muscle after a workout?

                            Someone need to educate themselves about steriods. That is wrong in about 19 different ways.

                            Creatine maybe but not steroids.

                              OP, did you try the supplements? How did they work. Since I hit a plateau, I am going to supplement with creatine to see if it will help.
