    POST Workout Supplementation


    POST Workout Supplementation

    Looking for some discussion on this topic: what do you feel is helpful or a necessity for POST w/o supplementation? Aside from the obvious (food/whey/WMS), what supps do you use in this window of time, right after training?

    Breaking this down further: do you differentiate your supp usage in this timeframe from bulking mode to cutting mode?

    And is there anything that you consider equally effective for both PRE & POST w/o supplementation? (again, other than food/whey/WMS)

    I actually run a pretty strict pre, intra and post-workout regime. They're all pretty important to me.

    Okay Universal.. that doesn't tell me what you use, lol.

    Important to me as well, and I'm strict too, but I want to know what you consider your "staples".

    I use Golden Finish exclusively post workout, with cissus/beta alanine (incarnate.) Like UR, I'm biased as well. I've found it works really well. I follow it up with a meal about an hour later.

    Cutting or bulking this remains the same. The followup meal will just be smaller if I'm cutting

    Okay, cool. Narrowing this down further (and eliminating company bias, haha), not so much looking for the specific product you use as much as what matrix you like.

    For example, for me, I prefer BCAA's, creatine, beta alanine, citrulline, and these are all able to be used both before & after training. Is there something you find indespensible specifically for post w/o window other than these?

    Understood.

    Pre-workout: some stims (when needed), creatine, 4-hydroxyisolecuine, arginine/ornithine, often EAAs

    Intra-workout: right now, just basic EAAs + CHO

    Post-workout: EAAs + CHO followed by hydrolyzed protein, WMS, bulk leucine followed by whole food meal

    I personally know a lot of fellas (some of 'em my lifting partners) who use BCAAs. Honestly, I don't get it. Why not EAAs? It's like Universal sells both EAAs and BCAAs but I never reach for BCAAs. What gives?

    I use bcaa's before and after, and also eaa. I use bcaa's due to the fact that I MAY OR MAY NOT get a chance to really eat any solid food before 2-3 hours afterwards due to scheduling conflict and working, earning a second degree, plus running an independent business.

    Before - I always consume a stim whether it be an actual STIM or something that is said to be STIM FREE with same effects, some yellow gold (of course with carbs), something that contains Safed, Mucuna, Rhodiola, and Doddder seed (since it's not to be company specific I won't name it) and of course the BCAA/EAA mixture.

    Afterward, I try to consume more eaa/bcaa mix, the same said supp mix, and all about 30 - 40 mins after. Immediately after I will take in a carb mix/protein shake. Then if im lucky, i'll get my chicken/steak, beans, potatoes, and half gallon water, this will come about 1hour later (IF IM LUCKY, but usually about 3 hours later)

    Im looking into some of the controlled labs products for during; i've heard they have some hella mixes.

    Branched chain are muscle-specific, go directly to the muscle cells for absorption. They also are carbon and nitrogen precursors for the synthesis of alanine, glutamate, and glutamine.
    EAA's are good as well (I like them pre & intra too) but work on different level. The other 6 aminos are not specific to muscle absorption.
    Don't think you can go wrong either way, but the BCAA's are where the $ is at imo..

    Too many of the BCAA studies are done on endurance athletes. See how many of 'em look at weightlifters. Compare that to the body of research on EAAs. Plenty of studies looking at the benefit of EAAs and weightlifters specifically.

    I agree, though im bigger on taking in Eaa's if I had to choose due to our body's inability to synthesize them.

    Cite specific example for research? I've never seen anything that touts EAA over BCAA for muscle growth. Granted, all EAA's are depleted when we train & need replenished, but everything I've ever seen dictates leucine, valine & isoleucine as the keys to muscle growth.
    Not argueing (hell, I'm a huge fan of methionine myself), but point me in a direction that disputes this..

    I'm not aware of head to head comparos of EAAs to BCAAs in studies looking at BBers. But I can easily come up with a dozen or so EAA studies as they pertain specifically to weightlifters. Like I said, there's a huge body of research on BCAAs--but these looked at endurance athletes. So there is no direct "dispute" between these two... Yet.

    There you go getting product specific on me man, lol..

    J/K it's cool.. but let me ask you this: what's the basis of your waiting 30-45 minutes to eat PWO? Also, what do you do immediately following w/o (there's kind of a hole in there)?

    The anabolic window of opportunity is not that short, S. That said, I agree--why take chances? I'll usually drink EAAs + CHO immediately after lifting--to prime the pump so to speak. Wait a bit, then my regular PWO shake. Then follow it up with a whole food meal as soon as I get home.

    That is more or less what i do.. I may try and replace BCAA's with EAA's

    Shhhhh! I wanted his answer U! LOL!

    I know the window is not that short; in fact, I myself wait @40 min. prior to consuming foods, but there's a reason for this. I just wanted to know what his was.

    Gotta remember Animal Nitro was one of the first EAA supps to come out--what was it, like 3-4 years ago--long before EAAs became popular? It was based on that growing body of EAA literature.

    Check 'em out and then tell me ya prefer BCAAs, hahaha...

    Oh I will read up on it - love learning things. Still have to see before I'll believe it. Dunno about the EAA popularity timeframe. I think I first used Purple Wraath like 3-4 yrs. ago it seems, so they've been on the scene for awhile.
    All I'm saying is I could shove literally PAGES of research at you on BCAA's & muscle-specific benefits, so one would think EAA specific research would now be just as easily accessed.
    I will say this tho: my favorite BCAA complex of all time does have an EAA complex to it - MNT's Nitro E8 (with the prop blend thing, can't see how it breaks down, BUT the BCAA's are the first 3 of the aminos listed, so we know they form the majority of the compound).

    My current routine is new to me so we will see how it goes...I based it off of a few things...Mauro DiPasquale states in the Anabolic Diet that carbos are not needed PWO as long as you have a good BCAA/EAA supplement...which I believe I do...also, I like to give my body a chance to take all those BCAA/EAA's and shuttle them into the muscles before forcing all the blood to my stomach to digest a shake...also it takes me that long to get home and make food...hahaha

    This is a new experiment for me so we will see what the results are like.

    Aha! Exactly my man! Very nice.

    I do believe carbs are needed, but the anabolic window of opportunity is longer than most believe. I did not know DiPasquale proposed such protocol. BCAA's will help retain lean mass in reduced cal dietary intake.. but I believe to grow new & fresh muscle carbs are absolutely essential. This comes from personal experience and yrs. living on ketogenic diet. Kinda hard to put new muscle on in that state.

    You are absolutely correct with your ideology of BCAA absorption tho imo. Too many people don't understand the effect digestion has on the BCAA absorption process.

    Welll i am still young so i have plenty to learn but i'll give it a go with what i usually do on bulks(since i don't cut very often..)



    About 2 hours pre i take some creatine+ba w/my p-slin then eat a meal.

    45 minutes pre i may take a stim(if need be)

    15-30 minutes pre i like some EAAs+carbs+citrulline malate+sometimes arginine(if not on stims i also like some tyrosine+alcar around this time)

    During i like EAAs+electrolytes+optional carbs

    Usually immediately after i have been taking carbs+protein(1.5 scoops Core MRP+~25grams WMS at the moment..)

    Then a nice post workout meal as soon as i get home.



    I have also had great results with EAAs+electrolytes during then eating a whole food meal as soon as possible afterwords(when i was at school this is what i did usually ate about 15 minutes after lifting)

    Interesting. Tell me about these carbs - are we talking dextrose/sucrose or what? What exactly do you use? (Go ahead & list product if that's the case).

    I usually use WMS. But i have also used some dex/malto before. Idk just imo i like the WMS better as it really doesn't bother my stomach at all.

    Or the times when i have used size-on(don't know the exact carbs in it off the top of my head)

    i usually use a pre workout sup first thing in the morning. wait 30 min then head out.

    mix BCAA and electrolytes mixture during.

    creatine right afterwards. wait 20 min and take WMS, wait another 20 or so and take a protein shake. 45 - 60 min later a meal.

    In the past I've always used carbs PWO...I have a metric sh*t ton of WMS here but I want to try and stick to what is suggested in The Anabolic Diet for a bit to see how it works...I figure if Dante (DoggCrapp) signs off on it there must be some merit to it...if it doesn't work, oh well, but it's worth a try...

    I have to say I've gone away from PWO Shakes. For a few years I would always do a PWO shake, originally fast carbs & whey, then I switched to lower-GI carbs like oats, banana's & milk/yogurt. The last 6 months, I've switched to whole food immediately PWO and I haven't noticed any negative impact. I feel if you avoid fats in your PWO meal and have it quickly afterwards, you still can fit it in that "Window of Opportunity". But also I think overall daily calories are as important as getting in the proper nutrients right around my workout.

    60-90 mins pre-WO I have breakfast, porridge (oatmeal) of about 80g complex carbs, 10-15g simple carbs from berries + Whey Protein.
    30-45 I might take a pre-WO supp, lately I've been doing JP8 but I am stim-sensitive so I try and stay away from pre-WO supps w/ too much caffeine.
    Peri-Workout BCAA's, Glutamine & Leucine
    Post-WO Carb & Pro meal

    That being said, I don't think a PWO shake is wrong, but I enjoy my solid foods too much lol. I have some pretty killer chicken and sweetpotato recipes I like PWO
