As a UK student the ANACONDA Protocol is comfortably out of my price range for now...
I have been putting some thought towards implementing the vague idea of the method used... particulary geared towards cutting.
Now this is by no means me thinking that this is equal or even close to the ANACONDA Protocol... that would be like comparing a fighter jet to a golf buggy...
... But rather a replacement for the seemingly outdated post workout P+C shake that I have been knocking back without question for years.
I am also all for simplifying things/minimising the number of different shakes and the such I'll be knocking back.
So my proposal:
-15: Whey concentrate, Dextrose, Creatine monohydrate, Any stimulants (big ass, double strength mug of green tea does it for me!)
During workout: Dextrose
+30-60: P+F dominant meal composed of real food items
I figure that the cheap whey concentrate... although having a relatively fast uptake compared to other proteins is still VERY slow compared to isolate, hydrolases... and CH of course.
Based on that assumption I figure a single, sizeable dose a short while before the workout should be sufficient.
Dextrose pre is there to help load up glycogen stores and obviously provide something to run on... the dextrose during to simply maintain energy levels and prevent a crash.
And as the liquid, rapidly digested P+C shake doesn't seem to be reccomended any more I have replaced it with a P+F Meal... I believe Mod Brian was saying he had good results from whey + coconut oil. I'll be chowing down some real food however.
FYI: I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel or any such nonsense. Just trying to further my understanding and come up with a cost effective improvement on my current protocol!
Thank you for any help!
