FYI-. If your getting chocolate or vanilla ice cream, the better deal is two 8lb bags. Just follow the OP's steps and add either:

Or
http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/p/10...er/op-1158

To your cart. The total (with coupon BOGO2016) for 16lbs before tax is $127.50 which comes out to $7.97lb. Slightly better than the $8.69lb in the main post. Less flavor choice though.

Happy lifting
Mocha Cappuccino is the best tasting flavor of protein on the planet, and I don't even drink coffee.
That's largely irrelevant. Total protein intake for the day is what truly matters and should be your primary concern, whereas the timing and type of protein are not worth fretting over. In fact, you could consume casein after exercise (or a chicken breast or anything else) and get the same results. A study comparing the acute effects of whey and casein using some rather sophisticated methods found the following:
"Whey and casein intake immediately after resistance exercise results in an overall equal MPS response despite temporal differences in insulin and amino acid concentrations and 4E-BP1." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21045172

Besides, the post-workout protein shake is only popular due to a misconception created by the supplement industry that we need to frantically cram nutrients during a short period of opportunity, commonly known in bro circles as the "magic anabolic window". In reality, the receptivity of muscle to protein dosing can persist for at least 24 hours after a training session, hence the importance of total protein intake over the course of the day: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21289204


On a side note, why on earth is nearly $9 per pound of whey (not to mention a poorly flavored product) considered a deal?! Please, Vitamin Shoppe employees, get off this site!

Anecdotal experience (i.e. YMMV): I've experimented several times with proteins and found best results from Hydrowhey and Platinum Whey. ON Gold is much less effective for me, and thus a second tier, for which I find myprotein similarly effective, and usually much cheaper.

Could you explain "results" in this context?

I love that flavor. Too bad I can't drink it bc the caffeine keeps me up all night.

is this a common deal on ON? ON is one of the few protein powders I can stomach, but I'm already stocked up on protein. is there a good chance this deal will come along again in a month or so?

Stats? How many pounds of lean muscle on that period? The kind of protein you take will have little to no effect on your gains. Most likely you were consuming more calories during that period, it's all about the macros.

I prefer the naturally flavored whey, since it doesn't have sucralose. If you have a little more money to spend I recommend Teras Whey or Natural Force whey, they are very high quality products. But again, it will have no effect on your gains.
