If you could only choose one out of : Indigo-3G, Plazma, MAG-10
One of the most important things a person can do is take care of workout nutrition, <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/plazma"target=“new”>Plazma being the king of that particular hill. But we will say this: if someone is not training brutally hard and really pushing his limit, he may not need it. He may not be “earning” it or doing enough to put it to work. That doesn’t apply to most experienced T-Nation readers of course. For them, workout nutrition is a gap that, if filled properly, will take them quickly to the next level: faster recovery, greatly improved workouts, greatly increased gains. They can simply train harder and more often with better results, without breaking down.
Now, if someone has nutrient uptake issues (he’s either a hard-gainer or someone who gets fat just looking at carbs - same core problem), then <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/indigo-3g"target=“new”>Indigo-3G may be their first choice. With their “broken” fat cells fixed, they’ll repartition nutrients toward muscle gain instead of fat storage. For me personally, Indigo-3G allowed me to finally eat enough overall calories and carbs to pack on some muscle after the age of 40 without gaining fat (lost some in fact.)
Now, of course, these work synergistically. Plazma gives you more of the right kind of nutrients at the right time to repartition. And Indigo-3G drives Plazma deep into the muscle. That’s why we offer a stack: <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/packages/plazma-super-stack"target=“new”>Plazma Super Stack
<a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/mag-10"target=“new”>Mag-10 is very versatile. It can be used as a protein supplement, used for protein pulsing, a semi-fast approach, or used for post-workout or during shorter workouts or conditioning sessions as an anti-catabolic.
The articles linked will give you more details about each, but the choice is up to you, based on your needs and goals. Hope that helps.
If I train for example 3/4 days a week and take Plazma x3 scoops on only those 3/3 days, would (for those on a budget) it make sense to take 1 dose of I3G prior to these workouts and no other time to maximise Plazma uptake.

For maximal effects, it’s best to use <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/indigo-3g"target=“new”>Indigo-3G at full dosage for at least 8 weeks. This is for those really seeking the “fat cell fixing” and nutrient uptake mechanism repair. However, some people do use it only to drive in their <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/plazma"target=“new”>Plazma.
I’s suggest this option: if on a tighter budget, use only two servings of Plazma, one pre-loaded, one during training, and use Indigo-3G daily. Two servings of Plazma is still enormously beneficial, and “regular” guys who aren’t pro-bodybuilders training legs for two hour workouts may not need 3 full servings, at least not every session. This will allow you to stretch your Plazma and remain on Indigo-3G daily.
If that still affects the budget too much, you’ll still see great benefits using Indigo-3G only before training or before extra-large meals such as refeeds or cheats.
