Evening everyone. If this has already been posted or discussed please send me in that direction.
I am trying to get some ideas for postworkout shakes. I am definitely considering Surge Recovery but was wondering if anyone out there has some homemade things they would not mind sharing. Right now as far as postworkout goes I do one of the following: 20g Whey+10g glutamine+ 2 servings Gatorade powder (taken separate but right after the protein+glu).
I also sometimes do straight amino acids (BCAA+EAA+10g glutamine extra), and some simple carbs such as two scoops Gatorade again.
Milk was also good but I had really bad stomach issues. Any thoughts or suggestions will be more than appreciated.
You're better off consuming the gatorade powder DURING your workout as opposed to after. Of course I would get rid of it completely if it contains high fructose corn syrup and/or trans fats. The stuff I see here has hydrogenated coconut oil so I ditched it completely.
20g of whey is ridiculously low, that's not even a scoop of whey. Most people take at least 60g PWO or the equivalent of 50g of protein.
Since you asked what we do personally, this is my protocol:
Thanks for the replies so far. I've never heard of peptopro so I will look into it. For Periworkout I do Anaconda protocol 2. If I may ask though which of the products has hydrogenated coconut oil? I keep the protein post workout at 20g since I eat like 30min after I leave the locker room. Post workout meal is generally an omlet w/ 3 whole eggs, 10 egg whites, sometimes some ground turkey (depends on how many eggs, more eggs less turkey), spinach, bell peppers, some oats and Juice.
just FYI, Gatorade doesnt use HFCS in case thats something that you're worried about.
A somewhat new way of thinking is to ingest carbs pre/during your working as opposed to post workout and has been endorsed by many people so you might want to give it a shot and see how it works for you.
Preworkout is a Finibar and then some Surge Recovery. During my workout I drink Surge Workout Fuel. I go by Poliquin's recommendation of whey+glutamine+glycine for postworkout. Anyone else go this route?
If your pre- and during-training nutrition is in place, you don't need a dedicated postworkout shake. It'd be overkill, at best. I'd stick with the Anaconda before and during with a good meal a bit after training, rather than rely on a homemade post-workout shake.
