Which of these products would be better for pre or post workout carbs and protein?

Neither would be good for pre workout, but Opticen is specifically designed as a post workout shake, unless you are trying to bulk, in which case Maximus would be a good choice

Sorry guys. I have been on TNT since November 2007. I am within a pound or two of my goal weight. I want to get some more definition with a mild bulk. Not really going for size just a well built look, if that makes sense.

Thanks Travis, I had bought some Maximus for my ecto son but he didn't take it to school with him. I was trying to use it rather than waste it. I will be buying probably next week, I will add Opticen to list.

If you already have the Maximus, use that. It surely won't hurt

Thanks for all the input. I may use the rest of the Maximus. I tend to get gasey when I use it, don't know why. I will talk with my son, I may just send the tub to him.

It could be the fiber in it.

I use 2 scoops of Maximus mixed with 2 scoops of Nitrean post workout and it makes a great shake

The TNT program actually recommends Opticen specifically so that is what I would recommend for you.

Oh, and one point of contention with Travis, both products would work well as pre-workout supps.

Also depends What plan he is on? Some of them don't even allow protein pre/post workout, so I'd agree with Chris.

I am on plan E. I plan on purchasing some Opticen with my next order. Thanks for all the input.

both are solid choices though i love maximus.. alot of people swear by opticen. I use maximus for damn near everything.. meal replacement, pre or post workout, etc. plus all the extra goodness included in it, it's just a better overall choice for me so i tend to recommend it more.
