After taking CT’s “Success Quiz,” I’ve realized that the lack of a post-workout drink in my training could be hurting my efforts. Unfortunately, I am unable to buy Surge since my dad thinks it’ll mess me up or something. Basically, since it says “consult a doctor before using this product” on the package, he thinks it’s dangerous, and I shouldnt take it.
So are there any other options? Could i maybe make my own shake? What i’ve been doing is just eating 2 small meals post-workout. One right after I finish my workout and one 30 minutes later. The meals consist of .4 grams of protien per lb of bodyweight and .8 grams of carbs per lb of bodyweight. I read those are good amounts in one of Berardi’s articles somewhere.
Anyway, is this good enough? Or are there better options for someone who cant buy surge? I’m afraid asking my doctor is out of the question, as last time i went he said that i shouldn’t drink a protien shake because “it might contain steroids” and that I only need the amount of protien in a peice of meat the size of a pack of cards per day.
Soo… what else can i do?
