But isn't one hour after your workout the best time to eat your biggest meal, consume most nutrients, etc? That's what I've always read...so the golden hour is actually false?

I use peptopro intraworkout with a scoop of Gatorade powder to help mask the flavor. A de ent combo that I enjoy, and feel works real well. Drink about half durring and slam the other half on my ride home. My preworkout contains two grams Leucine.
I am following a CBL diet as well. There's about 6-7 hours between my last meal and training, and about 20 hours between my last carb meal and training.

Who made this golden rule?
Where is the scientific backing of this golden rule?
Post-workout protein synthesis is elevated for 24 hours, if you meet your caloric needs and micro/macro nutrient needs in a 24 hour period that is what matters most, not having 30 more calories post-workout or 100 more calories post-workout.

Then why does John Meadows talk SO MUCH about periworkout nutrition?
Just to advertise for the sup companies?
For the record, he advises whole foods before and after training, but he does have a specific protocol for intra, calling for cyclic dextrin and casein hydrosolate intra.
I don't follow the intra protocol, but I do believe from personal experience (I'll admit i have no scientific data here :[ ) that when my pre and post nutrition got dialed on my gains were better.
No science here but it just makes sense to me to eat the most calories after you finish training. Especially if you train for a long duration of time..
When I get back from the gym I am ****ing STARVING
Coop, bob : are you two saying you don't eat after training?

I'm not saying he's just a salesman. Dude clearly knows his stuff.. I just go there for the articles and knowledgeable (for the most part) forum discussion

Meadows also advocated a pre-workout meal with Cream of rice, almond butter and whey and then tons of intra-workout carbs. Everyone skins the cat a different way.

It all boils down to what works out best for you. Trial and error. Myself I normally eat about an hour and a half pre workout then about thirty to forty minutes post workout with bcaa+saa intra/post training. This has been the best setup for MYSELF and I've experimented a lot. Whole foods during both meals and on occasion I throw in 25g protein shake post workout meal as well. I've used carbs intra workout and didn't notice anything but again I am getting some in with my pre workout meal.
In a fasted state i could see how intra carbs would be beneficial during training but if you eat a couple hours before your session I don't think it's necessary.
Trial and error my friend. Nobody can give you the right answer.

Nothing is more confusing than bodybuilding. Why can't it just be eat, lift, sleep. All the scientific stuff bothers me sometimes. Seems to me the whole bodybuilding industry is a ****ing lie

That relates to diet
Meal Frequency (Some prefer less meals some like more)
Different peak Weeks
Forms of cardio they find more effective for THEM and retaining mass when dieting down
Training volume from person to person.
What rep ranges help each muscle part grow best
Nothing is ever the same, everyone works different in multiple fashions.

What I use is Compete with some G2 when I want some extra carbs during my workout. Usually only happens when I am training with one or two people and I know that I will be at the gym for a couple hours, but that is just me and what I do. I know some people dont find any value in having carbs during training, while others love it. All I can say is try it for a little bit, see what happens. Maybe you will like it, maybe you wont.

I really like taking a intraworkout but only on days I don't take a pre. I feel nauseous sometimes. However with iForce's Compete, I have not noticed that and I have had really good recovery!

I have been using 1 serving AminoIV pre- and and 1 serv. intra with 25g Glycofuse pre- and 25g intra for a couple of months. When I don't take 25g Glycofuse pre-workout I seem to have more energy so I am from noe just using 25g intra.
When training and consuming carbs there is a minimal insulin secretion?

I'm taking 180 grams of plain old maltodextrin during my training sessions. Works great.
Life is nothing but big macs and hoes.
