Hi. Hope y’all can help me out. Have just started HST…took my baseline measurements (5RM, 10RM, 15RM) and then took the requisite 12 days off before beginning the protocol…which I started a couple of days ago. I really want to do this right, as I don’t think I’ve been making the gains I should be. So, I currently take Surge just before and right after the work out, but I can never figure out the BEST post recovery meal to eat about one hour AFTer training. The situation is a bit complicated by the following. I don’t get to the gym until 8:00-8:30 pm or so at night, so I wonder if taking a carb meal one hour after I work out (which is about 9:30-10:00pm) is NOT a good thing - given how it seems eating carbs late at night only increases fat storage.
I’ve also decided to do the Massive Eating program while on HST, as I do feel I need to put on size (I’m 5’8" and about 160 with 15%BF, 42 years old).
As I said, I want to do this right, as best as I can, and would really appreciate anybody’s feedback and suggestions as to how I can make this an optimal experience. Thanks to all who reply.
