I was wondering if there is a direct correlation between different types of training and the amount of peri-workout nutrition that needs to be consumed. For instance, your layer system (which I currently use, have used, and will continue to use) versus something involving higher volume, reps, and intense sets including drop sets, rest-pause, etc.
I am wondering if the metabolic cost, and therefore need for added peri-wo nutrition would be higher for the second type of training versus the layer system. I have done both types, and like you've said before, performance-based training can be somewhat boring and the "pump" doesn't really come into play. Maybe it's just a mental thing for me, but with lower reps and higher weights, I don't feel like I need as much food to perform great. I currently just take a Finibar about 30 min. prior and either Surge Recovery or MAG-10 post workout. Thanks for your thoughts. I hope you get the idea of what I'm asking.
