I have been drink 1.5 servings of MetRX Protein Plus post workout and then waiting about 1 hour or a maybe and hour and a half to eat a full meal.

Is this all I need to do or should I have something with my shake. Like some honey or something else. What is ideal post workout???

the ideal post-workout shake IMO would be a 1:3 ratio of whey:dextrose and/or maltodextrine

well since I'm having the premade MetRX shake should I have anything else with it?

Postworkout, high GI carbs are the most important because they refill your depleted glycogen stores and this prevents muscle catabolism. However, carbohydrates in combination with protein is ideal. My PWO shake is 1/4 c dextrose(52g) and 1 scoop of whey protein (20g).
From what i hear, dextrose is probably the best sugar to use for PWO shakes. I had some trouble finding a place to buy it at first, but you can buy it dirt cheap at any place that sells homebrewing equipment.
Hope that was some help.

Its my understanding the MetRx shakes are designed as meal replacement shakes, and not specifically designed as a post workout.

Sooo....finish your stock of MetRx shakes for breakfast and go out and get some protein + dextrose + maltodextrin for post workout

Really...


I thought MetRX was post workout. Hmm, that sucks

So if I get what you say will that be all I need post work out?

The Met-Rx protein is a proten blend which would be okay for postworkout, but I think 100% whey would be better. How much better, I guess is the real question:)

When you run out I would recommend just getting some 100% whey and dextrose. You can purchase the dextrose online or at a store that sells home brewing supplies. The 100% whey and dextrose will probably end up being cheaper than the Met-Rx protein.

Foods like white rice, white bread, smarties candy, etc.

If you wanted you could use smarties candy as a source of dextrose until you purchase some dextrose powder.
