yes its muscular endurance for now will get back to heavy weights soon once I have access to a good gym and no I don't do those many reps at one shot, I do sets of 20-40 reps with 30sec-1min breaks.
I do need variety as I get bored easily, so keep doing different things once in a while and then get back to weights

BHP-ians

I want to increase my protein intake and have narrowed down on Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard.

Can anyone guide me where to buy this in Rajasthan/Jaipur and how much these protein powders cost?

Seems like I have to go to New Delhi just to buy protein!

don't you have some health food chains there or some fitness equipment store - I have seen plenty of those in most cities in bangy, hyd, chennai, pune and bbay
Or if nothing else you could atleast get coach's formula at some store local fitness equipment store
Else make your own protein shakes. I used to do that many years ago. Use egg whites (atleast 1 yellow to get complete protein absorption) and milk and get creative with flavorings (bananas, choco, strawberry, whatever rocks your boat). After all whey is a derivative of milk and egg protein

Coach's formula tastes like crap. Good decision, buying Optimum Nutrition, tastes awesome... Or making your own shake like jassi has said above.

Thanks guys, I'll look around.

Are there any online stores that deliver to India? Most webstores look like fly-by-night type operations. Amazon doesn't deliver to India, right?

Coaches forumla aint worth it, lots of bogus fillers.

Get Optimum or a reputed brand, otherwise just stick to milk, eggs, paneer and chicken.

Supersyn: You'll have better luck contacting the distributors of the supplements directly, or just asking someone from here to buy it and courier it to you.

be careful of supplements including protein, energy bars, creatine etc if you are not working enough to utilize them. it can hurt you in the long run.

high protein intake increases acidity in blood and causes calcium deficiency/kidney issues.

He is right and kindly take any kind of supplements only only in the guidance of a proper Physician/trainer who has complete knowledge about it otherwise can harm your body a lot!
