Hey all just need a hand with my PWO drink. I have some Surge enroute but I was wondering if I was doing okay for the time being. I do full body training three times a week with some HIIT twice a week for 20 minutes on off days. I am trying to gain muscle but keep fat gain to a minumum (hence HIIT).
Before either workout (cardio or weights) I eat a whole wheat bagel with fat free cream cheese. Immediately after I drink a protein powder + banana shake with skim milk. An hour after that I like to drink another shake that has, 2 servings of peanut butter (400 calories about 24 grams of healthy fats), 2 servings of protein powder, skim milk, a banana, and some dry oats.
This gets me about a 1000 calories very easily. I choose to throw peanut butter in there because I have (for the time being) turned my back on P+F or P+C meals. Keeping one macro out of the others meals left me unable to stack my calories to get the extra food in. Does anybody see any problem with this?
I am 187 pounds looking for about 220 lbs (eventually, obviously I want it to be muscle mass). When the Surge gets here I would use it to replace my immediate after, and possibly sip on it throughout the workout, but I plan on keeping the 1 hour post workout shake the same. I have had some success with it just making sure that it checks out okay.
