Looking for opinions on pre and post workout nutrition and supplementation. I know everyone does it diffrent,but lets here how u do it and why.
I'm primarily low carb right now, but still seek to take advantage of what insulin can do around a workout. My current setup is as follows:
1hr pre-wo: 1 homemade prot bar, handful walnuts, grapefruit
1/2hr pre-wo: 2scoops WPI + 5g Creatine Mono + 2
Immediately before lifting: 4 scoops
Intra-Workout: 12 scoops BC+EAA, 20g WPH
1/2hr post: 2 scoops Lipotropic
1hr post: 1 prot bar and full meal 1/2hr after that.
I never feel overtrained, I'm getting stronger, and I train 5 full-body routines a week. My peri-workout nutrition isn't everything, but I feel it does contribute a lot to my rapid recovery and steady progress.
that is a ton of supps man you got $$$$
im stumped at 5 full body routines a week...
personally i just do 20g BCAA or ECAA intra workout. when im done working out ill get some carbs from wherever (banana or whatever im craving) and then scoops protein a lil after.

I take in 2 scoops of ON whey 30-40 mins before working out, then a 20 oz Gatorade and 2 scooped of ON whey with 5 g of creatine directly afterward. I'm doing this to get protein and nutrients to my muscles when they are most receptive. I've tried some of the preworkout formulas and don't get much out of them other than gas, though I did like Jack3d...
Preworkout - Con-Cret plus scoop of AAKG, Beta-Alanine and some Glycerol Mono Stearate
Intraworkout - Purple Wrath plus scoop of Taurine and Leucine
Postworkout - Whey Protein plus scoop of Glutamine
i've read that the most protein ur body can handle at one time is 40g's, unless your on some sort of hormone suplement, ph/AAS, anything over that amount is said to be useless
While intermittent fasting, I will eat 100g of protein in a sitting. If my body is only capable of using 40g-50g of that, how have I gained 10+ using such a diet, especially while low-carbing and having protein as my main calorie source? And why is my recovery way way better with 50g pre-, 30g intra- and 50g post?
40g COULD be the maximum which is beneficial for muscle protein synthesis purposes, but amino acids are capable of plenty of other functions in the body.
Everything is crap take protein after workout. The rest of that **** is just hype with caffeine.
Here is how I do it:
Pre-workout - Animal Pump
Intra-workout - Intra-Aid
Post-workout - Torrent
universals intra-aid is actually quite good, I had a sample the other day and it was probably the smoothest, easiest mixing bcaa product I've used thus far. Ive had quite a few
Seriously, give me more details. I'm vaguely familiar with intermittant fasting (eat stop eat from Brad Pilon). 100g at one sitting? It's just that you are using 130g whey between pre, intra, and post....it's...a....lot...of.. .whey protein.
Obviously it's working for you so please tell me more about your diet.
