Hi everyone! I am relatively new to the weight training world and I am looking for a little guidance. I am getting ready to start Waterbury’s 10X3 program while following the T-DAWG 2.0 diet. Due to time restraints the only time I can get to the gym is about 7 PM. Since I have to get up at the crack of dawn everyday, I am usually in bed by about 9:30 PM. What would ya’ll recommend I take (food/supplement) Pre and Post WO since I will be going to sleep so soon after working out? Thanks!!
i’ve never tried it, but everyone swears by Surge for pre- and post-workout meals. don’t worry about the whole limited carbs late in the evening thing if that’s when youre working out. make sure to get a carb+protein meal before your workout, Surge immediately after your workout, and a carb+protein meal about an hour after your Surge.
if you can’t afford Surge, chocolate milk would suffice.
I’ve been on a Cottage Cheese kick just before bed everynight… yummy stuff with a little fruit.
carbs and protein before your workout, carbs and protein during your workout, and carbs and protein after your workout.
throw some fats in pre and post WO if you want.
I was under the impression fats slowed gastic emptying - would this not be a negative thing after a workout when you want an immediate rush of carbs and protein?
Pre-Workout WPI+Carb blend.
Workout Amino+Carb blend.
Post-Workout WPI+Casien+Carb blend.

not a big deal if you’re carbing during your workout like i do. i drink ~150 grams of sugar and ~40 grams of protein during every workout. and i have like… 50-75 grams of carbs before everyworkout as well? so then i’ll have a zero carb shake right sfter the session, and then like 1 hour later i’ll hit up a real meal like a couple of cheeseburgers or something.
Thanks for the info!!!
