ive always been one that believed intra-wo drinks were not needed if proper pre-wo and post-wo nutrition was in place.
however, my workouts typically take 1.5-2hrs now a days.
i eat a pre-wo meal 1.5hrs before the workout
have my pre-wo drink 45-30min before the workout
stims, bcaa, creatine, b.a.
then warm ups, lifting, cool downs-1.5-2hrs
then post workout
bcaa, b.a., carbs
then eat 20-30min later
my question is, would a intra-wo drink benifit me in this case
also im training west side barbell if that matters

yea ive noticed that bcaa products generally dont help with my recovery, just help in making my nutrition more effective.
chained out is my current fav
i will try modernbcaa next, do you use it pre/post as well or just intra-wo? how long are ur sessions typically?
has anyone tried size on?
10-30-2010, 06:45 PM
10-30-2010, 06:48 PM
Ok thank you for the help!
so for now ill do superpump max pre-wo+1 scoop chained out
1 scoop chained out intra-wo
1 scoop chained out post-wo with an apple
then switch to modernBCAA intra/post wo after this

Well I train west side barbell, so my warm-up sets always take about 30min to get up to a max, plus 10min warm-up cardio and stretching...so that about 30-45min...then the workout takes about an hr to and hr and 15min...then stretching and at least 10min of cool down cardio...its not all intense training but im there for a long time.
Ur suggestion is interesting...so put the Need2Slin in the drink? or take b4?
If i do intra-wo nutrition, how do i do post workout?
11-01-2010, 05:51 PM
As for the GDA or Need 2 Slin, no I have tried breaking capsules up in shakes in the past and it was terrible! I was just saying prior to your workout you can consume a serving or 1 single capsule of Need 2 Slin in order to keep you from bloating during the training and using the carbohydrates more efficiently.
Post workout supplementation or nutrition would remain unchanged - however I do want to mention if you are exclusively training toward a power lifting end result, I am not well versed in that area of the nutrition needed.

and i highly believe in intraworkut nutrition, personally or me its because workouts are not lazy they are very high paced, and some times over 1-1.5hrs.....
for me it would be 1/2 cup oats,
1 scoop maximum absorbed protein, which is hydrolyzed casein or peptopro which is the fastest absorbing form of aminos you can get....
and 1 scoop IBCAA
i liek it, makes me feel secure, its like my anaolic blanky.....
i dont train west side so i dont know if that makes a difference....
11-03-2010, 04:47 PM
well i do active stretching not static stretching, which does reduce strength.
powerlifting nutrition doesnt very much from bodybuilding imo, 1g-1.5g protein per bodyweight, moderate fats and carbs. Enough to grow but not to much where im getting fat as that moves up weight classes to fast...honestly im seein better gains training westside then anybody building routine ive ever done.
Based on the suggestions of you guys ive started drinking a serving of chained out during the workout about 45-60min after i started to finish, not all the way thru as continous amino acid consumption causes a refactory response from aminos and no growth can occur.
So how is the peptopro??? ive been very interested in it, but i used intrabolic and was not impressed so i opted to bcaa malates to see if there was a difference.

i cant post links since i dont have 50 posts yet,
but google layne norton presentation...you should find his presentation on maximal meal frequency and timing and it explains it all...good info for a new train of thought, its not that you wont grow, but is it optimal?
11-07-2010, 11:13 AM
11-07-2010, 12:53 PM
dude i was offering infromation dont act so sarcastic. You can grow while taking protein/aminos no doubt...but im refering to optimal timing

I have never heard this theory before, and am extremely interested. I won't conclude or assume because he was defensive it means his theory is baseless, I just don't think he knows my posting style well enough to know I was/am truly intrigued by the fact Aminos might negate optimal anabolism.

Until a process is identified and somehow controlled in the eventual findings, and then repeated multiple times in the same settings by various experimentalists and peer-reviewed/published, I would just contend it's not wise to short-change our own efforts to attain new muscle mass by thinking amino acid supplementation can be counterproductive.
I'm going to read the article though, and thank you for your link. Have a good one.
*PS: I edited the written link, and its Optimal Protein Intake And Meal Frequency To Support Maximal Protein Synthesis and Muscle Mass if anyone is interested. I have yet to read the article, so if the link has supplements for sale, I will come back and delete it since I know the rules are really strict here.
*No there are no products for sale, aside from a Google generated Cinnamon Toast Crunch and General Mills advertisement, but there are external Google links here on AM, a Bowflex is at the bottom of the screen now (thank goodness it isn't that Neanderthal looking soft and small "Situation" from Wannabe Shore)

Slide 22 was a great recap of the slide-show.
I had actually read this article before, only it wasn't presented in a slide-show format. I can't recall if it was on his sponsoring supplement company's site, or Muscular Development magazine - but it intrigued me.
However, I must say although not very scientific in my approach I can tell a huge difference in my muscle fullness and strength capacity when I eat every 2-3 hours, opposed to eating every 4-6 hours (although I admit in the off-season I don't go through the rigors of supplementing with BCAAs or liver tabs etc between meals - maybe this is key?)
11-08-2010, 05:28 PM
im glad you read it!
it is a very interesting way to go about eating no doubt
i did do the precribed eating plan for about 3 monthes straight
5 meals 50g protein each for 3g leucine content
5g bcaa between each meal
and honestly it worked but now a days i just eat every 2-4 hrs and supp bcaa pre-wo and bcaa post with carbs and a meal 30min later....its just very hard to do every 4-5 hrs a meal, get 5 meals in, school, work, working out, and sleep 8-10hrs a night...nearly impossible for me
although once you adjust you dont get hungry after 2 hrs, and your muscle fullness returns as if you ate every 2-3 hrs, recovery was up also
11-08-2010, 05:30 PM
but thanks to everyone here ive been experimenting with intra-wo
since i had sizeon samples.
id mix it up and after about an hr to hr and 15min id sip half the packet till finish then do the other half right after...recovery is up...so thank you to everyone
11-08-2010, 05:48 PM
I just feel as though I'm not following the 'bodybuilder lifestyle' if I go so many hours between meals... I admit in theory perhaps I should abandon that philosophy and try something new.
