I recently joined a gym and have discovered the joys of working out 5-6 days a week (weights 3-4x a week.) I am a 34 yr old female - 5'11", 130lbs.
Having never worked out this frequently, (prev it was 1-2x a wk) I want to ensure that I give my body the nutrition it needs: to fuel my workouts, help gain muscle, and decrease body fat (currently around 20-21%.)
I am taking Alive (for addtl "greens"), Nature's Way enteric coated Fishol, and MAN w/lunch each day. I usually eat every 3 hours, about 5-6 times a day. I know I need a good multivitamin and creatine, and that I should be taking supplements through out the day.
I know I need protein before a wkout, and carbs and protein after. I'd like to find a ready made drink, or bar, for post wkout that has enough, but not too much, protein as I am going home after my wkout and eating dinner w/my husband within 1-1.5 hours of working out. I also need a good pre wkout protein shake/bar, and a meal replacement for those “on the go” days.
I'd also like some assistance w/other fat burners and/or muscle builders. I chose vaporize because it doesn't have any stimulants. I could take something in the morning (w/stimulant), but I'd prefer not to in the afternoon/evenings.
Thank you in advance for your assistance!
I've read so many articles that I am not really sure what is best for me - what supplements/brands. More than anything I want to be sure that I am taking them at the appropriate times. I am familiar with stacking, but don’t know what/when, or even if I am ready for that.
