Some questions for you experts.
I have been training consistently. I think have my diet in order. Some of the things I have read in regarding pre/post workout nutrition is starting to make me crazy!!!
BF less 15%
I have been following a ~2500 cal diet for the last 6 weeks. My break down is ~280-P/~200-C/~60-F
I have been making some good gains or changes(more def less fat)
This is my current Pre and Post workout shake scenarios.
----I workout first thing in the morning. Wakeup at 6am have pre shake then off to the gym at 6:30am them left for a hour---
PRE WORKOUT 1 scoop Dexrotose (34g) 1 scoop Whey (24g), 1 serv BCAA and HMB, 5g Glut, ~3g creatine.
--50-60 mins wieghts--
POST Workout Same as above added a Vit C and Multi V.(Also Creatine is increased to 5g)
Cardio Days I was doing the same exact thing but I want to lean up a little more so I changed to
Preworkout 1/2 banana and 1 scoop whey (24g) 1 serv BCAA and HMB, 5g Glut, ~3g creatine.
16 min HIIT, then 10 min Mod intensity, abs
Post Workout 1 scoop Dextrose (34g) 1 scoop Whey (24g), 1 serv BCAA and HMB, 5g Glut, ~3g creatine.
1. Does this look right to you guys??
2. I donít think I want to increase my Dextrose because I want to keep my carbs down.
3. Make some suggestions??
4. Do I need to mix 50/50 (Dextrose and malodextrin)
Should I try breaking my 6 meals down differently? 3 protien/carbs/ low fat and 3 protien/low carbs/hi fat.
I like my current diet it lets me have energy, I have tried the low carb diets in the past, I lose weight fast but loose ALLOT of muscle.
Example of my current meals.
6am Pre shake
7:30 post shake
9:00 1 slice wheat bread 1 can tuna
11am MRP (Myoplex or mesotech)
1pm 1 cup whole wheat spg.(or brown rice) some kind of protein(6-8 oz,chicken or beef or salmon)
4pm Same as above
7pm Same as above
9ish 1/2 of myoplex or mestotech.....
I also add fats (almonds or natty PB to keep my fats up) I really dont add fats when I eat salmon)
More: I have a glucose meter to see what foods go.
1hr after my post workout my blood level is 88mg/dl
When I wake up fasted is around 100
2hrs after 1 cup whole wheat spg/1 cup of lean beef its 69.
Is there a optimum time to check and how long after meals???
sorry so long and thanks.
