So far, on weight training days (afternoon workouts) I’ve experimented with:
1Recreate /2PwFULL afternoon (prior workout)
And the winner is ….
RECREATE LITERALLY RECREATES YOU. I’m not an “early morning” person and I’ll find any possible excuse to avoid a scheduled morning HIIT cardio (the weather is too hot, the weather is too cold, back is stiff …bull$hit-it is stiff every morning, ...I’m not an early morning person ).
With Recreate, I crave HIIT as badly as ketogenics crave their weekend carb-refeeds izza::donut::burg:
* Morning doses (~8:30AM)-always kick in faster, within 10min (increased -alertness, sweating, positive aggression, focus, an overwhelming rush of energy and happiness). Importantly, when dosing Recreate in 2/1 (morning/afternoon) scheme, appetite suppression is significant throughout the day as opposed to 1/2 (morning/afternoon) – not much at all
The effects are VERY INTENSE AND LONG LASTING (especially with a double dose of Recreate, come 2PM and the heat is still on!)
* Afternoon doses (~5PM)-EVEN WITH 2 Recreate the effect is not as intense as when the same dose is taken in the morning, also, takes ~20min to kick in
CONCLUSION: RECREATE SEEMS TO WORK BEST ON EMPTY STOMACH
To elaborate this further: afternoon dose is taken 3hrs after lunch and 1hr after a small protein shake (gastric emptying not 100% completed); morning dose is taken after >8hr overnight fast
