During my workouts I generally have been sipping 2L of water with 1/4cup whey hydrolysate, 1/2 scoop gf pro, creatine mixed with dextrose, 3 tablespoons of maltodextrin as well as bcaa and glutamine.
I started this because I read a book called nutrient timing and read a few articles including Birardi. My question is my school’s gym does not allow anything other than water in the weight room so am I better off sipping half before my workout and half in the middle and just goto my locker and finish it off then go back to the workout or am I better off downing the whole thing 10 min before my workout…
It supposed to be mixed in over a liter of water though…also after my workout I have another identical shake like this. So do I keep both shakes but instead of my during workout shake being drunk during the actual workout I split it to a few mins before and about half way through or just drink one shake before and after??
If I drink one before and after when should I make up the calories of the missing shake? Sfter the post workout shake I usuall wait two hours and have oatmeal and tuna and then another two hours later brown rice and veggies with chicken or other lean meats. The rest of the meals are veggies protein and fat.
SO would I add another carb meal somewhere if a shake is eliminated? But mostly will it make a huge difference if i got rid of this shake all together regardless if fat loss or bulking ? I am told by some that a pre and during high gi meal is good and some say to only wait until after a workout so I am a little confused there as well.
Additionally I have a carb meal after my fasted cardio and abs that’s performed threwe days a week but before my workout. Should I switch to something high-gi? currently after I have oatmeal egg whites and whey. Also, one more question my right arm and left arm are pretty close in strength but my right arm’s vein puts my left’s to shame.
I do an extra set ranging from 5-12 reps and negatives on my left bi to try to fix this but it doesnt seem to, is it purely genetic? Thanks alot.
