post-cardio supplementation

Hey all - I’m doing 2-3 sessions of high-intensity interval training each week. Should I approach the post-workout supplementation in the same way I do the weights? And should I add anything else into the mix (antioxidants, etc)?

What’s your goals??? Fat-loss: wait about 15-30 min after and have some L/C Grow. Max Recovery: high GI carbs/whey. The P/C meal should be a no-brainer recovery aid.

Malto and whey in a 2:1 ratio w/ BCAAs and Glutamine. The amount is dependent on your goals. If you are on a severely restricted diet, then you may have to go with about 1/2 the amount; certainly not the same amount you would consume when bulking.
