post workout carb

  1. post workout carb


    Just curious to what your thoughts were on drinking v-8 fusion juice after a workout. Good idea? Bad Idea? Let me hear them.

    Each can depending on the flavor seems to have 38-42 grams of carbs. 35-38 which are sugars from the fruit.


  2. Don't do it.

  3. any reason why?

  4. I think we should know what your goals are...whats your body type?

    Simple sugars after my workout always kept me smooth...when I switched to complex carbs, and get my insulin in control, great things happened...but its all dependant on many factors..fill us in holmes!

  5. Ive been doing hypertrophy stage and stregnth training stage. The hypertrophy is really to get my body a rest from the max efforts I put into my squat bench and deadlift. I also figure drinking the v-8 because of the carbs and the vitamins from the the fruits and vegies.

  6. I've had good results having simple sugars post workout before or after my protein shake.

    In high school i would keep candy in my car, but the chocolate would melt in the summer time

    By your stats im assuming you are an ecto? Always lean? I look at ketchup I gain weight, hah! That candy and chocolate would stick to my hips..

  8. Post workout carbs are obsolete, don't do it.

  10. When I bulk, I do a combination of simple and complex carbs post workout. 1.5 cup oats, 20-40g maltodextrin.

    Elaborate on that. I'm curious to hear why you feel that way.

  12. I use 20-30g dextros mixed with my whey protein PostWO. but use oatmeal+ a banana for my protein smoothys rest of time.

  13. I like postal : )

    Feel that way? I'm actually kind of surprised you all aren't on the same page yet..

    -Energy deficit after exercise augments lipid mobilization but does not contribute to the exercise-induced increase in insulin sensitivity (abstract)
    -From a HGH perspective
    -Books or interviews with Dr. DiPasquale (SHR 501 and more)
    -Books or interviews with Dr. Scott Connelly (at least one on the crossfit journal)

    I didn't realize this was news?

    I've heard it before, but didn't care to really look into it. Thanks for the links.

  16. i generally try to use a carb that wont really spike insulin but will empty the gut quickly, i really like to use Waxy Maize for those purposes.

    That's what I've been rocking for the last couple years.

  18. dextrose always makes me feel good after my 5x5 sessions

    what about how insulin helps with protein synthesis?

  20. I'll stick with my carbs post-WO as the benefits of prolonged GH are speculative, at best, and that I like my glycogen levels to be full. I'm not saying to ingest a cast amount of high-GI carbs, but taking out this important macronutrient is absurd. Exercise, aerobic and anaerobic, both increase GLUT-4 receptor expression, which will, in turn, help repartition the glucose to the muscle.

    I wish that study would have looked into cortisol, CK, and other inflammatory markers to see if there was any impaired recovery.

  21. There is plenty of research on Carbs and protein around workout. GH effect is overrated at best.

    If you guys want an excellent source for pre/during/post nutrition information, pick up Dr Lyle Mcdonald's "The Protein Book." He covers just about every research available and its implications on training. Hundreds of research covered. He is a collegue of Alan Aragon for those who know him.

    Yeah i have always had trouble putting on weight. High school i was about a buck 55. I've been slowly putting on muscle mass, waiting on my metabolism to come down a bit.

    Ideally, i would take wazy maize after a workout.

    How is Karbolyn compared to Vitargo?I use Vitargo S2.I really like the muscle fullness I get from it.

  26. vitargo gets good reviews but is so costly, ground oats as my postWO carb has always yielded me the best results over wms, dextrose, fruit juice, gatorade, etc.
