    Something that's been on my mind since day one.


    So i have a question... what do you do once you finish training?Do you take your shake directly after weights or cardio?

    I'm curious to see everyone's approach to the bottom options!

    1. Weights, PWO shake, abs, cardio.
    2. Weights, abs, PWO shake, cardio.
    3. Weights, abs, cardio, PWO shake.

    and why?

    Again.. just curious

    but then i think... should i be getting my shake in quicker for a more responsive insulin spike directly after my weights?

    Cause otherwise abs 20 min then cardio 20 min - that's 40 min after a heavy session...will i get the same insulin sensitivity 40 minutes after my weights than i would directly after?

    Maybe i'm too caught up on broscience?

    Curiosity is a b****.

    stop thinkin so much. waiting for your shake after abs n cardio won't have a negative impact on your recovery from lifting. there's times where I'm unable to eat over an hour after my session and I still grow and recover. I'd be more concerned with what/how much I'm consuming than immediately after. are you having carbs post workout?

    Yeah standard - i always think about it. Just curious though.

    Yeah a carb blend with whey, glutamine, bcaa caps and fish oils directly PWO.

    Only added in the PWO carbs not long ago though - I was following George Farah's idea of no carbs PWO for a while because he says it blunts your natural GH release directly PWO.

    I usually go home and lay on the couch for an hour until the nausea subsides. After that, I eat.

    4) workout (i do not separate weights, abs, and cardio) and sometimes i eat afterwards, sometimes i just go to bed.

    I don't. That's just an example on the days where i do abs and cardio. (haven't done either in 3 weeks)

    ...and yes i am one of those desperate fat dudes.

    well youre overthinking it. a preworkout shake isnt some miracle steroid shake, nor will it diminish the effectiveness of a workout. its just protein. if you get enough throughout the day from your diet, you dont need a shake

    I know this, I'm talking about post workout shake and the "anabolic window".This post is just to see what other people do in regards to this cause i'm curious.

    there is no anabolic window. thats what in trying to get at. thats broscience created by supplement companies to sell their protein shakes for that purpose. and its worked for over a decade now

    Yes, I would suggest doing that.

    After my workout I will have a BCAA shake with Leucine added then follow that up with a big PWO meal. Reason being mTOR activation and restoring protein balance (CHO PWO to minimise protein degradation followed by protein).

    Just one protocol of many.

    no science behind this statement whatsoever but i like to take BCAAs or a hydrolyzed protein immediately post weight training. If i do cardio, I will drink it before cardio and/or abs. once i get home I have a meal. I usually make my shake an hour after breakfast.

    Interesting stuff... this is the type of thing i like to read about. So you wouldn't recommend carbs in a shake PWO? Also when you say BCAA shake with added leucine do you mean only those two or do you use whey as well?I used to have Humapro + Chain'd out post work out. Until i had to sell my car to finance my Humapro purchases.

    Yeah this is what i wanted to see.. what everyone post workout protocol is.

    Thanks dude. Mine is pretty similar with a few goodies added in.

    CHO=carbohydrate, so yes include that. For me, my entire PWO meal is 1 litre of Dark Blue milk (35g of protein and 50g of CHO) alongside BCAA and Leucine (BCAAs at a 2:1:1 ratio and Lecuine at around 5g). Most likely that will end up leucine being above saturation but its cheap so I don't concern myself over it.

    Haha I was wondering what CHO was.

    Dark Blue milk... Is that a brand or a type?
    Might google it and see what the deal is.
    Currently using... ALRI - Humapro, Bioflex - Hydroflex HWPI, Bioflex - Jointz, Bioflex - Biogreens, Athletic Xtreme - Hard FX, Infinite Labs - Juggernaut HP, Finaflex - Max Pump, BPS - Vanillean, ALRI - Lipotherm, Swisse - Fish Oils.

    Type. Dark blue lid (not sure how the US packages milk, but it just means full fat).

    Haha yeah my bad, i'm just used to seeing it shortened in text books that way

    ^ anabolic window is a myth. There is no most important meal. Simple carbs aren't special after working out. Protein digestion rate doesn't matter either, and you shouldn't waste money in glutamine. Most glutamine is absorbed by the tissue of your small intestine aka pointless!

    Just focus on reaching your macronutrients, staying consistent, get rest , and be patient. Anything else is extra .

    Peace.

    Some sound advice. Thanks.

    What do you do post workout?

    I disagree.

    Insulin infusion decreases protein degradation post workout (aids in restoring protein balance which can be done without protein intake but only post workout) . Intravenous amino acid has a stimulatory effect on muscle protein synthesis independant of the insulin effect. BCAAs post workout also increase the muscles sensitivity to the protein stimulatory effects of insulin (hence why a combination of a CHO and BCAA conatining beverage or meal is appropriate). In addition, there also appears to be a potentialtion of amino acid transport into the muscle after an acute bout of exercise ----> Hyperaminoacidemia (following amino acid intake post workout) has been shown to further enhance amino acid transport and muscle proteim synthesis post workout.

    CHO have an interactive effect with aminos that enhance protein synthesis and decreasing protein degradation..

    This is without even delving into the effects of mTOR activation and the inhibition of epsilon subunit of eukaryotic initiation factor 2B that begins the translation process

    What Sean, Rodja, Onion said. Don't overthink this stuff, you'll get paralysis by analysis and stump gains.

    Remember that supplement companies ie: shakes, want to sell you stuff first and foremost. That is why they are in business. Making it seem like supplements are the most important thing to lifting gains. They are an adjunct only. It is really simple... lift and eat good natural foods first. So replace that "from day one thought" you had, with adding #10-#30 to your squat this month. ;-) Rinse & repeat
