Cheapest Protein Powder in the History of Mankind

NOW Foods - Whey Protein Isolate (ingredients are 99% microfiltered whey protein isolate and <1% soy lecithin for mixing purposes).
A 5lb tub costs $59.99 on Amazon, has 162 servings, 25g of protein in each serving ... that's 67.5g of protein for every dollar you pay.

Let's compare to one of the more coveted brands these days, ON Gold Standard 100% Whey,
A 5lb tub costs $53.99 on Amazon, has 74 servings, 24g of protein in each serving ... that's 32.9g of protein for every dollar you pay.

if a serving is 30g (and it is, if the per-serving protein amount is 25g), then unless the NOW stuff also has magical physics-bending properties, there's no way it has 162 servings for a 5lb tub. there are 453g per lb, so there are 2265g in a 5lb tub, or 75.5 servings. give or take.

super grade whey protein concentrate from truenutrition.com is 10lbs for $90 shipped, which is cheaper per pound than the price you quoted. the high grade stuff is even cheaper but it doesn't mix as nicely.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

Raw ground beef
"Performance during stretch-shortening cycle exercise is influenced by the visco-elastic properties of the muscle-tendon units. During stretching of an activated muscle, mechanical energy is absorbed in the tendon structures (tendon and aponeurosis) and this energy can subsequently be re-utilized if shortening of the muscle immediately follows the stretching. According to Biscotti (2000), 72% of the elastic energy restitution action comes from tendons, 28% - from contractile elements of muscles.
