The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    when is the ultimate best time to take it ?

    Immediately after ?

    I sometimes drive home then make a shake and eat some bananas, so its roughly 15-20 mins after my workout..

    If this is gonna hinder my gains I will make sure I take a shake to the gym..

    What are your thoughts ?

    As soon as i finish my last set of of whatever lift and stretch off, i head straight for my bag and down my prolab isolate shake and oatmeal

    Then i have a proper meal about 1hr 15-30mins after

    I've always gone to the gym with the conviction that I'll be the hardest working mother****er in the joint. Make that your credo, and hope we don't lift at the same place.

    Anyway, i drink my N-Large, canola, OJ and a bagel right after training, then 90 minutes later i have a slower digesting meal. Usually ground beef.

    immediately following i take in the following potion 10 g glut, 7 g creat, Schiff joint mix (1.5 g glucosamine, .5 g chondroiton sulfate and 10 g of hydrolized collagen), 40 g of protein (whey isolate 70% /hydrolized whey-casein 30%). Within a half hour i consume walnuts (20 -40 g GOOD fat) and then after 1.5 hr i take a good full meal.

    why? Because after you exercise is when protein and ATP synthesis are primed up and amino acid uptake can be at its highest.

    Take a shake to the gym. If its not a pain then why not?
    Its at least worth the placebo effect!

    I don't have much of a scientific response, but I take my postworkout meal within a few minutes after I train. I aloso train on an empty stomach, so I need to get something in my system fast after I train.

    80g simple carbs
    20g whey protein
    before I start the car to leave the gym

    creatine or glutamine sometimes.

    nap if there's time.

    1 hr later, real food.

    I workout,
    go home,
    indulge in tuna sandwich heaven (approximately 45 min. after workout).

    I have heard you should wait an hour after a workout to eat, but I don't know the logic behind that. I eat when i'm hungry.
