    1 hr post - full meal

    15mL of flax....why you adding it to your post? why would you want to slow down absorption at all?


  2. hey kay, the toast would give you some protein (like 5g), but it is an incomplete source so most people don't count it. also, eggs already have an ideal amino acid profile.

    whole egg - 6g protein, 3 in yolk, 3 in whites, fat ~5g

    sage, i don't know why i add it post other than charles poliquin recommended so (i'm not kidding, that's my reason). however, i doubt that the few minutes difference would matter and it could actually help. a study i saw compared only whey vs only casein post workout. guess which was better. that's right, the casein. now you might be surprised, but allow me to explain. it is true that the whey gets into the blood and therefore the muscle faster stopping the catabolism, but this effect is short lived. by one hour after, the muscles had slipped into catabolism (some people don't eat again within two hrs - fools). in the casein group it took longer for the protein to get to the muscles, but once supplied, it continues for like 4-7 hrs preventing further catabolism, and this effect is enough to more than make up for its slow initial absorption.

    so what is the lesson i learned? take only casein? hell no take both and get greater benefits than either alone. note that casein can be switched for any other slow protein, like meat, etc. there is enough casein in my milk that i mix my post shake in to get me to my next meal an hour or two later.

    cheers, pete

  6. I think you found it and ran right over it

  7. That line is usually only visible to those outside of the situation.

  8. I never even saw a line

  9. This is certainly the biggest thread ive ever started. Thanks for all the good info boys, keep it comin....

  10. I think I've posted my regimen prior, but I've revised it, so here it goes:

    Wake-1.5 cups oatmeal, 2 cups skim milk, 1 scoop whey. Then, I take 600mgs ALA. Then I train, PWS-one-third cup dextrose, 45g whey, 600 mgs ALA, 3 liver tabs. 45 min later-1.5 cups oatmeal, 1 cup cottage cheese, 1 cup pineapple, 2 cups skim milk. There you have it.

  11. I don't remember seeing the line. It was too long ago when I crossed it. My whole day is just about that busy, not just around my workout.

    Your a pretty busy guy too scotty.

  12. indeed, sir

  13. Pre-Workout: Don't do anything special, usually just some slices of bread for the carbs...

    Post-Workout:Fill one Bottle up with 2 Scoops Syntrax Nectar 46 G Protein...then fill another bottle with 2 cups of a fruit juice(Grape, Apple, Lemonade, Orange, etc.) and 5-7 G Creatine.

    I have a bag of Dextrose from NOW Nutrition, do you think it would be more beneficial for me to add some dextrose to the bottle of juice with creatine in it, and if so how much because usually it already contains 50 g of carbs.

  14. boy howdy ... sure did find this one late...

    bulking, preworkout: muscle milk strawberry, really preworkout is the only time I would ever use it but damn... works wonders, great workouts with the ole muscle milk...

    cutting, maint., and bulk, post w/o: whey and dex baby...

    by the way, somebody earlier said...
