    i understand bloating, and if that is the difference for you (ie bloating on certain things but not others), then that is valid for you
    but - saying that one of these carbs makes one perform better than any other..huh uh
    not buying it
    Ill take a strong placebo effect. Im not a scientist i dont care much why it works but for me theres a huge difference. 35g wms preworkout i feel.like crap workout suffers. 35g vitargo feel good workout much better. Same with zero carbs pre workout, maybe i just never got used to training totally fasted but theres a noticible difference for me with carbs pre workout

    That is exactly what I use!!
    48g egg white protein
    75g dry oats
    1 large banana
    Water and Ice
    All in a blender :-)

    Yum yum yum

    absolutely
    the old catch-phrase "hidden glucose polymers" applies to many of these products advertised as "no-sugar"..
    when in fact, the ingredients (not understood by the average joe) do in fact play a major role in blood glucose levels and insulin response

    this is an example of insulin-response, and why each of these items you mention have a different effect/response in you, individually

    is why NONE of these can be called the be-all/end-all, because metabolisms are different on an individual basis
    so, there is no right nor wrong answer here..

    hence the old saying: "whatever works for you"

    all in the timing my friend
    instead of the 30-45min (or less) before WO you take in your preWO shake, i'm sure beans has this 60-90min (or even 2hrs) preWO, much more suitable to digest, and much preferable IMO for useful energy/endurance/insulin response

  7. I was curious i use pretty much the same thing before my afternoon workouts. I love it. And your right bout 60 -90 minutes preworkout and your ready to party. This would be my preferred method. Just with WPI instead of egg protein

    Yes. This about an hour to two hours prior is a big win in my book

    Honestly I have to eat whole food within an hour before training or I an starving during.. Also keep in mind I have a really fast metabolism and I tend to spend about two plus hours in the gym, between a half hour to 45 minutes prehab then about one to one and a half hours lifting

    the simple answer here is: you are in the gym too long
    no need to be training for that long
    hopefully you are at least consuming bcaa pre/intra

    Snags with a simple answer! He does it all! Kidding aside bud I agree 100%. If I'm in there for more than 60-70mins I'm pissed, now don't get me wrong I am currently in there a bit longer trying to get my cardio in but off season I'm in there 45 mins tops!

  14. I'm in usually around an hour and a half, but my volume is usually higher especially since I was just doin gvt and I never did an exercise for any less than 8 sets.... But I don't have a gym anymore! I have a wife and a few heavy ass books!

    doin it mountain dog style in here come along for the shred fest-http://anabolicminds.com/forum/workout-logs/229302-danbs-mountain-dog.html

  16. i have definitive views on training
    off the top: 45min is good timing for weights, 60min at the most
    anymore than this, and you need to pick up the pace and speed things up..stop talking to ppl
    even the largest volume workouts should not take 90min (or - gasp! - more)
    as for cardio - well i have definitive views on this as well
    if you weight train then follow with cardio, okay..but - 30min is the most i would advise for cardio here, and that would be LISS (my personal preference would actually be HIIT, and of course 15-20min max is all that is needed here)

    so:
    45min weight + 20min HIIT = BOOM!
    all your training needs accomplished in short timespan

    many ppl do things (extended training an example) that may emotionally feel "good" to them, but intellectually are actually detracting from their goal of building muscle

  17. Pretty much what I prefer here snags minus the HIIT I know it has its benefits but for me it sends my appetite through the roof. I prefer LISS 30 mins tops after weights with some BCAAs! Works for me :-)

    sure
    LISS provides a specific function, and i don't say it is not useful (in proper context)
    i personally simply have no use for it

    I'm drinking recover pro intra.the longest part is my warmup. On leg days it takes around a half hour maybe slightly more to get everything moving properly before I squat then I'm training for between one hour and an hour and a half..
    Idk how people expect to train without proper mobility and smfr before hand.
    Yeah arm day I'm usually in and out within an hour or less

    I'm not to worried about it (time spent at gym) though.. I went from 185 to 200 in the last three months, no sups no aas, just the staples.

    And as far as starving, if I wait two hours after eating before I go I'll be starving no matter what, regardless of how long I take.

  20. okay

    this is decent, at least you are getting nourishment intra

    some would argue with the amount of "warm-up" you seem to require as "necessary", but okay..
    I'm not to worried about it (time spent at gym) though.. I went from 185 to 200 in the last three months, no sups no aas, just the staples.
    and this has absolutely nothing to do with the discussion about spending too much time in the gym, as it is neither a cause nor effect from your timeframe of gymtime
    there are many other factors that can explain your recent success of muscular acquisition, aside from pointing to your gym protocol as being the "cause" of it, or the fact that it may not be as beneficial to you as you assume

    again, just technicalities here..i am not condemning, simply discussing
    to each their own

  21. I'm loving all this great discussion in here. Much appreciated and again, so glad everyone is I'm here

    all except your atrocious posts, with periods everywhere they don't belong


  24. Squats 4 sec/ rep x 10 reps = 40 sec / set

    Leg press 4 sec / rep x 12 reps = 48 sec/ set

    Gastroc/soleus contractions 5 sec/ rep x15 reps= 75 seconds / per set

    Leg extensions 3 sec/ rep x15 reps= 45 seconds/ set

    Hamstring curls 3 seconds/ rep x 15 reps = 45 seconds / set

    At 10 sets of squats that's 400 seconds of working time + 600 seconds for a one minute rest between sets = 1000 sec / squats

    8 sets of leg press is 384 seconds of squats + 480 seconds of rest = 864 seconds / squats
    8 sets of calves = 1080 sec for calves
    6 sets of extensions = 630 sec
    6 sets of hammy curls = 630 sec

    Total time is 2574 sec / 60 sec in a minute = 42.9 minutes

    That's not including any rest between sets...literally no time
    No time for warm up
    No time to set up/ load up your weight
    No time for cardio
    No time for anything else

    It's fair to say that 1 hours and a half is needed for a solid high volume workout
