does Micro-PA take the place of a pre workout or can you still take it?
Define “pre-workout.” Most lay people use that term to mean some type of stimulant or silly NO type of supplement. That is not what <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/micro-pa"target=“new”>Micro-PA is. If you take a pre-workout stimulant, then you can continue to take it when using Micro-PA if you’d like.
Should Plazma be considered into building your macros? I’m concerned about the sugars in it.

The carbs in <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/plazma"target=“new”>Plazma are actually thermic in nature. You can’t really count them the same as you’d count carbs/sugars from whole foods because they affect your body in a very different (positive) way. In short, it’s virtually impossible to gain fat from them. The special carbohydrate complex increases metabolic rate.
It’s the same with the protein. 20 grams of protein from Mag-10 or Plazma stimulates protein synthesis to a far greater degree than what you would get from 100s of grams of conventional protein.
It’s up to you how and if you count them.
Chris, thank you! Clears up a lot!
