MAG-10 Question

I am currently eating a FINiBAR one half hour before workout, begin consuming Anaconda about 10 minutes prior to first rep and finishing it sometime during my workout. Some training days I finish Anaconda one half hour to an hour before I am finished training. I do not eat/drink anything immediately post workout. I have my MAG-10 one hour after the last rep.

Should I drink the MAG-10 sooner if I finish the anaconda before my workout ends or stick to taking it an hour after my last rep?

Also, on some higher intensity/volume days I will have another dose of MAG-10 an hour after my first dose. When is the proper time to eat a solid meal without altering the effectiveness of the MAG-10? I know the bottle recommends consuming on an empty stomach.

How long is your workout?

How many scoops Anaconda do you use?

How much water do you mix your Anaconda in?

If you finish Anaconda an hour before you finish training training it sounds like your workouts are VERY long or you drink VERY fast.

I usually eat about 45-60 minutes after my second MAG-10.

B.

1-2.5 hours

2 Scoops of Anaconda in 1000ml of water

What do you do for 2.5 hours? Can you post your entire training split? That’s a VERY long time to be training. Most people are done in 45-90 minutes.

You can dilute Anaconda further. I’ve even done 2 scoops in 2.5 litres of water. If such a long training time is really warranted in your case for some reason, an extra scoop or two would probably be a good idea, though.

I don’t lift alone most of the time I usually have at least 1-5 training partners, so that is def part of the reason the training takes so long but here is a typical week. For having so many partners the workout is still pretty intense. Even though our rest time can get extended to 3 minutes or so we utilize alot of strip sets, rest pause, super sets. For example here is what we did this week

Sorry for the late reply, haven’t visited the nutrition forum the last couple of days.

I don’t see how that plan would require as long as 2.5 hours to finish, even with 3 minute breaks. Your Thursday back workout should not take longer than an hour. Hell, you could probably do it in 45 minutes, same with the other stuff.

Stick to 2 scoops of Anaconda.
