I’ve been trying to refine my Peri workout nutrition and have a couple of questions that don’t seem to have been dealt with. As a defensive back I’m not interested in putting on any weight, if anything I’m looking at slimming down a few pounds. This is where my knowledge of peri nutrition runs into trouble given what’s typically recommended on this site. Being geared towards bodybuilders, alot of the stacks/protocols (such as Anaconda) clearly aren’t meant for this.
What I’m currently doing is Surgey Recovery pre-workout coupled with a Gatorade/BCAA mix during workout (or on hard squat/conditioning days this is swapped with Surge Workout Fuel) and a whey protein afterwards, such as Grow! Whey or something like that. I’m not taking any Creatine, while it definitely improves my gains in the gym I put on way to much water weight.
As well, I’m following a program which is somewhat similar to Defranco’s WS4SB with a focus on more “explosive” exercises (not my words). So what else can I substitute in/out?
