    What is your post/intra training nutrition like?


    Some drink water, intra-aids, Gatorade type drinks during the work out.
    Post some eat a meal, some slam back protein, other takes a carb protein post recovery shake then a meal.... Some people pay attention to strict timing.
    Looking for different views on what you guys do and what gave best gains for you?

    -Thx

    Pre workout i usually have a bowl of oats with a banana (1hr before) just to give me the energy during.
    I drink about 500ml gatorade during about halfway through when im getting depleted just to push some glucose back into my muscles.

    On days that I do cardio, i drink a litre of gatorade every hour or so to limit the amount of BCAA's my body uses for energy. also eat a lot of Carbs pre-exercise (excess unused protein makes you pee heaps).

    Post, im not into meal timing so much anymore, I still get something in, maybe an Up&Go energize just for the carbs. Kinda helps that tired feeling post exercise.

    I do water or Gatorade intra. Been toying with mBCAA before but haven't decided if that's how I wanna do it. Then i put down a Carb and protein shake down. Normally high calories. While I cook dinner.

    I train in the morning fasted.
    I am a big believer in whole natural foods.
    My post workout meal consists of plain Greek yogurt mixed with 2 tablespoons of raw honey, vanilla extract, cinnamon, a cup of strawberries and a medium banana, all mixed together, along with green tea and a teaspoon of creatine.
    I'm thinking about adding beta alanine, the science and anecdotal feedback seems very solid.
    Peace

    Intresting.. I have always wondered if you needed A carb source with your protein shake. I've just been doing 2 scoops of protein. Do you count that towards your micro/cal needs.?

    Most protein powders have a mix of protein and carbs either way...
    Absorption may be better.
    Also think of pump products with carbs & water.

    I usually don't count my post workout supplementation to my cals. I used to take 2 scoops of protein + 30g of simple carbs then have a meal 1-1.5 hours later but then after hearing about not needing carbs post workout, I cut it out I took 2 scoops of protein and just a meal 1-1.5 hours later but unsure what I should do now lol

    Its all about experimentation and finding what works for you.

    For the longest time i did a keto diet. No carbs post workout and i did just fine outside if the horrible cramps.

    Now days though i have carbs pre intra and post and then depending on how many meals ive had during the day i have another meal with carbs 90 minutes after or i will have 4 whole eggs.

    With the carbs in my diet i feel stronger, fuller, more pumped and my recovery is better so i stick with that.
