My High days are on my hardest days, Legs and Shoulders/back. Starting Monday, my rotation goes H M H L M L M I make sure my Low days are off days. Im pretty sure that your PWO isnt too great. Grouping Fats with your carbs is not ideal, especially PWO. Simply put, fats slow down digestion, and PWO is the one time you need Quick, immediate absorption, which is why it is extremely important to take in some some quick absorbing material, whey and simple sugars. Your PWO shake is All fat and no carbs.[/quote]
Yeah, I’m coming from the primal community…high fat, medium/high protein and low-carb, like never more than 150grams a day. The goals I had a year ago, that was fine. The goals I’ve come to now, not so much. Still trying to maintain some of those beliefs, but know some of them need to go out the window.
What would be a good PWO shake then. I am currently on a tight budget, which is why my shake has the milk and the eggs and the coconut oil, trying to keep it more actual food base. The only supps I have now (bought before being laid off and having to be on a tight budget); greens+, Flameout, rez-v, about 1 3/4 remaining tubs of Metabolic Drive, creatine (Biotest), and my brother has NO-Explode and that Carbo Max stuff.
If I remember correctly, Metabolic Drive is slower digesting, right? Does that make it non-ideal for a post-workout meal? Would I need a different post-workout shake on high and medium and low days or should the post-workout be the same given that your body has the same needs post workout regardless of the day in the cycle?[/quote]
Protein and carbs. Thats what you need in your PWO shake. You budget is irrelevant. Minus the milk and the Coconut oil. Use water. That saves you money there. If you want natural stuff, bananas are good PWO. Protein and carbs! I havent looked into MD too much, so i dunno. I recall seeing people use it as a snack substitution tho, that tells me its going to be a bit on the slower digesting side. I use the same shake on each of my days. Its an 80 carb shake, so i just make adjustments with my meals that allow for me to take in 80 carbs later. FOR EXAMPLE, with my body, im allowed 250 carbs on my low days. So i have approx 100carbs with breakfast, approx 60 with snack, and 80 with my PWO shake. On my high carb days, i take in about 450. So i have a lot more room to work with my carbs, taking them in with every meal except for my pre bed.
