I’m a crossfitter, fairly lean (5’10" 175lbs) and I’m not trying to bulk up. I’d like to stay lean and defined. I use a Pure Whey Protein Isolate (1st Phor phormula-1) for a protein shake after my workout. The purpose of the post workout shake is faster recovery and help build definition in my muscles.
They guys that sell it have been pushing me to add to it a Glycogen Supercompensation Formula (Ignition) stating that I should have a carb to help recovery. The thing is, I eat very low carbs now (usually 50 - 75 grams per day), to maintain my weight and I’m concerned about adding a carb to my mix.
I cant tell if these guys that are trying to sell me some additional product (the stuff aint cheep) or if I would be better off adding the carb to my mix.
What do you think?
