Hi everyone,

Looking for some constructive criticism on my current nutrition plan for pre/post workout. Almost every workout (5 days per week) looks like this:

45 minutes prior to workout: 1g PA (Biotest Micro-PA) w 8oz water
15 minutes prior to workout: Small spinach salad, light on dressing, 1/4 grilled chicken breast; 1/2 a serving Plazma workout formula, 1/2 serving EAA+ hydration
During resistance training: 1/2 a serving Plazma workout formula, 1/2 serving EAA+ hydration
Immediately following resistance training (3 minutes prior to cardio): 60g whey protein, 4g creatin monohydrate, 8oz unsweetened almond milk
12-15 minutes cardio

After cardio I shower up and then wait to eat again until dinner (typically 1-2 hours), unless I get hungry in which case I either eat a meal or snack (peanuts and raisins).

Really appreciate any input; what would you guys recommend I do differently? I'm currently focusing on hypertrophy and strength for now, and will likely do some cutting around spring/summer time. I'm natty but take quite a few supplements. Thanks!

Zero reason to have your protein shake before the cardio. In fact as poison said, 60g of protein in 8oz of almond milk must be closer to sludge than a shake.

I mix the shake before I lift, so it's entirely dissolved by the time I get to it.

If the recommendation is that I save the shake for after cardio, that's an easy adjustment to make.

eh sounds like your system might be working for you, but the main problem is some of the protein can get burned as energy. most people would do cardio first then strength training. maybe since you do 60g some gets burned and some will be gains? dunno for sure

if it was me, I would consume the shake post cardio. Only time I can see it make sense to consume prior is if its a long cardio session. But 15 mins is really nothing to be concerned about

No he’s not. I’m ignorant and training fasted is perfectly fine to develop muscle. It’s 2021 and I’m supposedly out dated.
can you chill out. I said I do anti catabolics and aminos. I just don't like a bunch of food in my stomach when I train. it's not even actually fasting

there are still people who set alarms, and wake up in the middle of the night to consume a pre made protein shake so they don't lose muscle 🤷🏾‍♂️

Yeah and they are retards. Now if they’re so deep in their off season and their coach require them to eat 7000 calories of clean food which they can’t get in during the day and need to wake up at 3 am to eat the last 700 calories and it’s last resort then sure. Pretty much every pro open bodybuilder has done that for several months if it was required. Sadly I don’t think it’s optimal long term for digestion and good progressing. If you’re a skinny twig waking up at 3 am to drink protein then you’re an absolute retard.

what's wrong with being a retard?
