What do you guys do for post-wo carbs these days?
I only use 10g bcaa or a product like intrabolic post-wo
I like to add about 50g carbs immediately post-wo then eat 30min later as in layne nortons routine.
I was curious what would you guys use for right after?
Im considering chaind reaction by alri
or just going with a banana and some ezeikel cin raises toast

I make a pow shake myself and use 60-90 g of Vitargo. It definitely helps my recover and restore glycogen faster.

For a solid 7 years now, I've been doing 45g protein, 80 gram dextrose, 10 grams creatine mono. I've cycled off before, and the difference is big, I will never got a post wo without it.

Similar to you, in the past my favorite mix was 10g BCAA + 10 grams Glutamine + 50 Dextrose followed by a balanced meal or homemade MRP shake within 30-40 minutes, if i am on a budget constraints then 25 g whey protein + 50 dextrose will do followed by a meal or a shake as well. Currenlty, I consume a small serving of my pre/intra mix Bulldozer XL5000 with protein/dextrose part of my post (since it has creatine, beta alanine and glycine). Sometimes I just rely on Gatorade as my source of sugar when I am on a rush.
The best results I ever got part of my post regiment for improved recovery happen when adding a potent antioxidant formula. Made a huge difference in terms of my recovery so give it a try.

I do MuscleFeast products cause there cheap and they have the COA so it's legit. 1 serving of Hydro whey + 1.5 servings of there casein + 1-2 serving(s) of waxy maize. All in 8-16 oz of milk and 2-3 servings of PB. If I'm on cut I'll take the waxy maize out and only do 1 serving of PB. I love the results I've been getting and it's super cheap

I use 30g maltodextrin with a no/pre workout supplement 20min prior training,
30g maltodextrin with 20g free form amino acids during workout,
35g blg whey+35g maltodextrin+15g plain sugar after workout,
30 min later another shake of 35 g whey,50 g maltodextrin, 10g sugar
and 45 min after the second shake a solid meal 35g protein+70-80g starchy carbs (white rice, bread, pizza dough, wheat gritz)
as far as I'm concerned, 35-45g whey + 40-60g fast carbs + 5g creatine is the optimal choice right after workout. free form amino acids should be consumed prior and during workout primarily, u could however use them in addition to whey in pwo shake to enhance the amino acid profile.
glutamine is optional

I have all my post workout stuff while driving 15min. to work. I'm totally pressed for time and this is my second "meal" before 5am. Since I'm driving I eat homemade oatmeal cookies, a double serving protein drink in milk, and powdered gatorade in 32oz of water with a tbs of corn syrup. It's a lot of liquid in 15min, but it works for me.
12-15-2010, 08:46 PM
would malto and a banana be a good choice?
anyones opinions on chaind reaction?
a lot of good idea hear im learning my fear of fast carbs and sugars may not be all to good
12-16-2010, 02:17 PM
maltodextrin is ok. banana will sit up in your stomach. just go with whey+malto pwo and starchy carbs later
the time around training is the best time to ingest higher amounts of fast carbs, since they will be immediately used for glycogen resynthesis and maintain stable blood sugar levels

I've used dextrose, and I've used just regular cane sugar. I have noticed literally no difference.
