Muscletech Premium Gold 100% Whey Protein (Review)

For my latest protein powder purchase I'm checking out Muscletech Pro Series Premium Gold 100% Whey Protein.

The packaging claims this to be 'America's #1 Selling' whey. I picked up this particular 2.5lb (33 serving) tub of 'Double Rich Chocolate' flavored powder at Wal Mart for around $20. Each 34g scoop claims: 24g of whey protein isolates & peptides, 130 calories, 5.5g BCAAs, 4g of glutamine.

According to the label "Unlike other inferior whey protein formulas that may use heat, harsh acids, and salt, a superior cold-pressed micro-filtration process is used to produce the ultra-pure whey protein isolate found in every scoop of Premium Gold 100% Whey. Protein. The why protein isolate in Premium Gold 100% Whey is so pure that the formula mixes instantly in a shaker cup or even in a glass using a spoon. And just as important as the quality and purity of the whey protein in Premium Gold 100% Whey Protein is its taste. We conducted third-party taste tests on real consumers to help us formulate a first-in-class taste profile that's second to none."

After running out of Super Advanced Isolate Protein  (review) I've been working my way through a tub of Premium Gold 100% Whey. The most noticeable cosmetic difference between these two is how much more easily Premium Gold disperses into water. I drink mine in pint glass, stirred with a spoon, and get a clump-free shake with minimal effort. The taste is good too. With a name like 'Double Rich Chocolate,' I was expecting something a little darker, but this comes off a bit like a liquid peanut butter cup, which I quite enjoy.

After a month of using whey consistently (1 to 2 shakes per day), my stomach has adjusted to it, and Premium Gold causes no discomfort. I typically use it as my first and last snacks of the day, following 30 to 60 minutes of fasted spinning on my Bladez Fitness Fusion GS II Indoor Cycle (review) immediately after waking up, and then in the evening just before hopping into bed for the night.

Does it work? For my purposes as a runner, so far so good. While eating high protein and low carb, I've continued to shred fat and build strength, and found myself able to power up 3,000ft of climbs on my last trail run.
