when do ya have ur post workout shake after weights? or after cardio?
Within 20 minutes or ASAP.
I wondered that too. If you work out and then do cardio for 30 to 45 minutes, is that bad as far as what muscles you just worked out having to wait so long?
I guess the alternative is chugging protein then hitting the cardio, which could be a bit "unsettling" if you will.
why eaa before the cardio?
As soon as I walk out the gym
During cardio if you do cardio after weights. If not, within 30 mins of finishing your weight-training should be fine.
Depends on how long cardio will be. If it's anything over 30 minutes I have my shake after weights then full meal when done with cardio.
As soon as I get home from the gym. I only live 2 min away though.
I drink mine directly after I finish cardio.
I pound my PWO shake in the lobby of the gym as soon as I finish resistance training.
what if ur cardio is first thing in the morning empty stomach? do u go home and just eat ur regular breakfast of eggs and cereal? and what about if u do ur cardio before bed? do u just go home and have ur bedtime shake and sleep?
I lift around 30-40 minutes after my pre-workout meal and sip on BCAAs throughout my workout. My workout usually lasts between 40-50 minutes. Currently, I follow my workout with 25 minutes of walking (4.0 mph inclined) cardio. I sip on BCAAs throughout cardio also. I then take my protein shake after cardio (within 10 minutes - however long it takes to get out of the gym). I then have a meal within 45 minutes after my PWO shake.
I do 5 grams BCAA while cardio, then WMS, creatine and 10 more grams BCAA after. 30 min after that 2 scoops whey, 45 min after that regular meal. Thats how I use to do it, now I just drink my shake after I lift....I don't do cardio after I lift. 10 weks out I'll adopt this regimen again.
