Protein Shake After Cardio???

  1. Protein Shake After Cardio???

    A few days into my contest prep now, planning on doing cardio after the weights 5 days a week. Was thinkin about taking some BCAAs after the weights before my cardio, and a shake when done with cardio. I live about 45min from the gym, figured the shake would hold me over until I get home. What do you guys think?

  2. I do pwo shake and pwo carbs right after WO/cardio bring both to the gym

  3. I'm almost 1 week into my prep, what I am currently doing is aminos after workout, then hit the treadmill follow that with a shake, then make the 40 min drive home and get a meal ( chicken and brown rice) follow that with 1 more carb meal, then cut carbs for last meal. and shake before bed. gonna try this for a few weeks, and if needed will drop carbs again.

  4. gl reaching ur goal u can do it!!

  7. Basically what I am doing now is bout 100g carbs per day divided between my first 2 meals. Then train. I work a swing shift schedule so sometimes it later before I can train. Carbs were higher earlier in my diet, but the weight wasnt coming off like I wanted. Seeing good results now. Strength is still up, 7 weeks out now. Still have some BCAAs after training, then do my cardio, then protein shake to hold over until i get home from the gym (40 min). Then eat when I get home.

  8. Yes def shake post lift

  9. That awesome. I keep telling guys and girls all the time. Weights, bcaa,s then cardio. Then drink a shake (WPI) walking to the car!! I'm assuming you all are yanks? I'm Aussie. We are so backwards here. It's just not funny.
