Hi All, been a while between visits here and i know PWO has been done to death in many threads but i was after some ideas from the senior members.
I'm 46, been training for just under 30 years and tried just about everything
Just bought some Genr8 Vitargo which is supposed to be the latest, greatest carb source and it does come with some pretty good reviews, price being the only negative. Haven't tried it yet so am i going to have buyers remorse?
Came here for some ideas and and a bit of motivation which slips a bit sometimes these days.

Well if you ask 10 different people, you will get 10 different answers. I always opt for a banana and a wpi drink. That has always worked for me. Any more carbs than that and I start to accumulate fat. I try to stay somewhat lean. Maybe someone else can chime in. Thats just what works for me.

This is a great question. I was always curious myself. I drink a preworkout with creatine nitrate, also stack creatine nitrate caps along with it. I also drink an intra like Modern BCAA and then finish off with VPX Synthesize. I've always wondered whether or not I needed the Synthesize - I simply use it as insurance.

My routine for quite sometime has been Protocol immediately post w/o followed 15 minutes later with WPI in water. It's solved my recovery issues for my age tremendously.

The Modern BCAA is a great product. The vitargo is great. I would use it 35gm serving should be enough with 2 scoops of modern BCAA and possibly 5gm creatine, and then 5gm Glutamine, and you have a great post workout stack. The vitargo is great. Its just expensive.

I was thinking of BCAA's and Creatine.
Not 100% sure but wouldn't Whey Isolate slow the absorbtion rate of the Vitargo?
01-26-2011, 03:36 AM
No, vitargo is quickly absorbed as is whey Isolate. If you added fats or fiber it would slow it down. You dont want either of those post workout.

Immediately (in the damn locker room): I slam a serving of Maximum Absorbed Protein.
When I arrive Home: Slam a 2 scoop whey drink, with Oatmeal blended in.
~One hour later: Meal.

Vitargo's only real downfall is mixability. It does not like to mix well, it clumps and you dont get a lot of it because of this. You'll end up swallowing clumps of vitargo in your shake. For the past while ive just been using Protein ( MAP) pwo or ibcaa's and then have my meal when i get home.

The downfall for me is the price.
I'm using Orange flavor now but just bought the unflavored one as i'm not really into flavours, colors etc. I was a bit sceptical at first but i feel i'm recovering quicker and feeling quite full as well. I just bought another one so that's saying something for it.

Yes, its not cheap. If it works for you then It may just be worth it though.

For now ill just have to get my carbs in from whole food, wich ive been doin. It works but its not the most convenient.

I get to the truck, and have 1 svg Massport, by Infinite Labs, and Add 2 scoops Modern BCAA by USP Labs. Then eat when my body tells me to.

i like some simple fast acting carbs to spike insulin- insulin will shuttle nutrients to the muscle quickly
but your going to need a heafty dose of white carbs to get it
my postworkout meal
2 servings white rice
2 cups skim milk
2 servings wpi
spikes the hell out of my insulin, i get tired and light headed about 25 minutes afterword
an hour after post workout meal i eat a regular meal
ima big boy though sitting at 245 6'0 tall
just what works for me

I noticed that my body responds just a little bit better with brown rice for my pwo meal and chicken instead of Steak. Steak will keep me too full after words and I like my last meal to usually be a steak. The fat and protein content is fine and im using a carb cutoff technique.

When we are not at sea I always eat steak post workout with White Jasmine rice. Its so good. My favorite meal of the day during the week. 8 oz sirloin, and 2 cups rice.

Ive added Arginocarn 2 grams with my ibcaa's pwo and im starting to see a bit more recovery. Ive actually started adding more Carnitine daily and seeing a difference.

I definitely will. Thanks. I have just been using the jasmine up.
Carnitine is great. I am going to add it in to my next contest prep. I have heard great things about ALC, and R Lipoic acid together.

The ALC, or carnitine is a great metabolism booster helping burn fat for energy, and the R Lipoic acid is a potent anti-oxidant which helps with overall health. Its a big supplement rightnow with a lot of research being done on it for elderly and cancer prevention etc.

I like the orange flavored Muscle replenisher, it tastes just like an orange creamsicle when you mix it with milk.
02-11-2011, 11:06 PM
That sounds delicious.
