View Full Version : Po;; - Post Workouot Consumption

05-08-2004, 06:57 AM
Just wanted to get a poll on who took in simple carbs and whey vs a regular meal post workout or maybe even a combination of both

05-08-2004, 07:57 AM
None of the above. 99% of the time, just a whey protein shake.

hrmm why is that?

in the absence of carbs

that whey shake will just be converted to sugar/energy

I have a dextrose/whey/creatine shake about half hour before working out and a full meal about 30-60 minutes after working out

Only reason I can think of why you would choose to have no carbs in a post workout shake is a CKD type cut/bulk. Even then, I'd still surround my workouts with carbs.

1 oz. Dex, 1 oz. Malto and 2 Scoops Whey,

depends if I'm on a cut or bulk
usually I shoot at +50% cabs throughout a bulk
and I lower my carbs on a cut...starting at 40% down to about 15%
I take a combo of malto/dex/HRS (hyrdolyzed rice carbs)

I eat a regular meal containing carbs+protein; usually cereal+skim milk and a small serving snapper fillet.

usually have a potato and neglish muffin after workout and protein. then meal an hour later.

weight gainer shake (ie ****load of maltodextrin) mixed with whey. very superior to whey by itself, as you'll actually absorb more of the whey if it's with carbs. don't remember the ratio but you should take more carbs than protein, partially to raise insulin to help absorbption and partially to replenish glycogen stores depleted during workout

50g whey with 50g dextrose.

ryuage is the number one maker of po;;'s
i go with fat, carbs, andd protein
at about a 10-25-15 ratio, or a 2-5-3 ratio.. dependin how u look at it

05-10-2004, 12:16 PM
A cup of oats or brown rice + a scoop of whey followed by a real meal an hour or so later.

05-10-2004, 12:23 PM
<Tuna, chicken or an omelette w/veggies followed by a lowcarb MRP depending on what my goals are at the moment.

I just have a regular meal - dinner. I used to have an OJ and whey PW and 1.5 hrs. later have dinner. Within the last 3-4 mos I've just had dinner and to be honest with you there has been no regression, only progression. I do contribute that partially however to milk and whey before bed, usually because I am hungry again.

50g whey with 50g dextrose.

Same here.

Sometimes I replace the 50g dextrose with a peanut butter & jelly sandwich on white bread. While the insulin spike with the dextrose is a bit faster, the post workout PBJ and whey shake works fine. PBJs kick a$$, and this is the only time of the day I can rationalize eating them in my diet.

I have a 60g whey/60g dextrose shake.

05-10-2004, 04:51 PM
wont your negate that insulin spike with the peanut butter some?

05-10-2004, 05:40 PM
34g whey, 90g dextrose. then 1 1/2 hours later small chicken breast and 3 cans of small white potatoes - around 34g protein and 90g carbs again).

haha good ratios supirman. did you read 'nutrient timing'? i don't remember the author but i read most of it recently and felt real benefits from following some of the suggestions. your timing of both meals afterwards and their time separation are damn near perfect

05-10-2004, 07:00 PM
no, i didnt read it, but chris janusz aka swolecat made my diet for me. he guaranteed he'd get me ripped, so i figured what the hell, might as well give it a shot.

GODAMN i just looked at ur numbers man!!! it seems to be working huh? 440 @196? congrats how old are you? how long you been lifting and on what types routine?

05-11-2004, 07:58 AM
i'm 22, been lifting since 15 (for hs football). For a long time, I did Max-OT style training and this is where most of my strength gains came. Currently I'm not payin any attention to strength stuff and I'm working on a mix of high and low volume exercises. The cutting diet I'm using goes hand in hand with the workout I'm using as well. Just trying to get lean for summer.
