  1. Best Post Workout Protein/Carb Powder? Mix of Whey/Carb powder, Optimum 2:1:1, or...


    My goal is adding strength without too much fat. I train around 6PM, have a post workout carb/protein shake (add my own creatine, betaine, etc.) around 7:30PM, then have my last meal of the day at 9:00PM and go to bed at 11.

    I usually eat food but like the convenience of a post workout carb/protein shake. I don't need any added creatine, betaine, etc. because I order that in bulk and add my own to the carb/protein shake. I'm looking for around 2-400 calories.

    I am considering the following:

    1. Optimum 2:1:1 recovery

    2. Mix my own whey protein with Karbolyn

    3. Mix my own whey protein with Glycojet

    4. Mix my own whey protein with Glycofuse

  2. I'd do the 2:1 or even more if needed because as the day wears on we become less and less sensitive to insulin, but working out artificially increases muscles insulin sensitivity. This is how are body's natural partition nutrients. The only reason I wouldn't say you would need a 3:1 or higher ratio is because strength training doesn't really involve that much volume so you may not be depleting glycogen stores enough to make it effective.
