Agreed.
Many people seem to think that protein powders are the holy grail of bulking up, and companies that make them capitalize on that.
Old-time bodybuilders trained hard and ate lots of good food, and grew like hell.
I'm not a big fan of bulking up because I really don't see any benefit in it other than bodybuilding competition.
