"Ingesting CHO alone, or in combination with PRO, during resistance exercise increases muscle glycogen stores, offsets muscle damage, and faciliates greater training adapations after acute and prolonged periods of resistance training" (2008).
You could always go with a Gatorade powder, BCAA powder, and some.
If you are looking for a supp. I would recommend LG Science's BCAA mix, or . Either of these can have other bulk powders added to them which would be available at NP. Just make sure that the ingredients cause the effects that you are looking for.
i just drink about 5 grams bcaas in about 20 oz of water and sip it thru my workout.
i only use intra workout drinks when i know i will have a longer than normal workout session. (over 1.5 hr)
intrabolic is THE best. not even close.
Pepto Pro is a hydrolysed Casein protein. For a start Casein protein is not as anabolic as Whey protein because whey protein contains all the growth factors such as IFG-1. Casein is more an immune system protein containing beneficial immune factors. To put on muscle you need those growth factors. Unfortunately, the growth factors have a bitter taste because they are classified as hydrophobic amino peptides. But these are the proteins that give you all the benefits for anabolic growth. What we know of Pepto Pro is that they have 'de-bitterised' the protein. That means they have broken down the protein further to eliminate the bitter peptides but those peptides are the active proteins which gives the casein all its health benefits. In other words they have gone too far with the processing, much like when you make amino acids, to make it taste good rather than engineer the protein and
separate the beneficial peptides from the rest of the protein
Sure you will get a protein which is absorbed quickly supplying amino acids for muscle repair which does not taste bitter, but you have eliminated the good peptides and do not have any growth factors to tell the body to repair at an anabolic rate.
Recently, I have been doing:
1 scoop Purple Wraath
Then about 45 minutes later:
1 1/2 cups milk
1 scoop whey
2 tbsp pb
1/2 cup oats
I like it because I seem to beable to eat more than when I was eating a shake immediatly after. If anybody sees a problem with this I'd love to know. I just really like the idea of getting amino's during and after.
