  1. 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****.

  4. 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.

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

  9. bigger question is why do you end every workout with abs and cardio? r u on of those desperate fat dudes?

  10. 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.

    The anabolic window can last up to 48 hours.

    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

    I should definitely stop reading "Muscular Development" and "Flex".

    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.

  19. 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

  25. ^ 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.
