i am trying to lose weight, and lots of it. Im coming off of yet another QL injury, so I am sort of taking it slow with a standard starr 5x5 program and a sub 30 gm of carb per day diet. I am starting off pretty light with the weights due to the injury (I have been given the ok by my sports med doc). I am in the low 30% body fat range according to a bod pod measurement.
at any rate, i have been feeling really drained lately so I started using this protocol based on CT's "Refined physique Transformation" article
Pre-Workout (30 minutes prior)
10g whey isolate
10g of glutamine
30g of glutamine
30g whey isolate
(dont have glycine yet)
I only take this on the days that I am lifting. my weight has stayed static, but my muscles are definitely feeling fuller and the next day I feel like the energy is back. This is different than prior to the protocol where my muscles just felt drained all the time. My workout energy has also improved.
heres the issue:
Generally about 10 minutes after drinking the post work out drink, I am feeling light headed and nauseous and this lasts for about 2 - 3 hours. During this period, I literally feel like my IQ has dropped, which is effecting my job performance. I also usually have diarrhea 30 minutes after the workout.
whats going on here? how can i keep the increase in workout capacity without effecting my job performance?
