newbie needs input
ive been lifting for a while but havnt really gotten the results i want. i am going to start using a weight gainer shake that calls for 40g protein and 25g of dextrose. But ive read that 1:2 ratio protein to dextrose is best. I know everyones body reacts differently. I was just looking for input. Also is it hurting if for insistance I do chest and tris. if i do chest completely take a little break ( 20 mins and drink the protein shake) then go and finish tris. Like I say im not getting the results I want so im open to ideas.

dextrose is great, but for after you w/o. i guess it doesn't hurt to use it like you are, i t will certainly rellace the carbs you've burned up doing chest, assuming your intensity level is high. dextrose is rapidly absorbed by the body causing an inslin spike which is great right after you w/o. i would also invest in another power though, just regular whey for pre w/o and other times during the day. another trick is to drink a shake in the middle of the night. have one mixed and sitting in the fridge ready to go. i only drink one if i get up to pee, others set an alarm clock, but i think that's unnecessary, but thats just my opinion.
post your w/o routine
no weight is needed

I do bi and shoulders one day then chest and tri the next take, repeat, and every two weeks one of the two have a third before taking off two days straight.

i add it. the whey protein is 100%. I drink one in the morning (40g) and then post workout i drink one (40g) with the added dex ( unsure of the amount to add, got sugguestions, right now its 25g).
