Protein Pre/Post Workout Question

Okay,

So after doing some reading, I’m a bit confused. Should I be taking the Low-Carb Metabolic Drive after workout at night? And what protein should I be taking BEFORE I work out?

Thanks.

Fast acting, from a drink such as Surge before/after a workout.

High carb after a workout if you are planning on adding muscle.

Low Carb Metabolic Drive would be used as a meal replacement during the day, a supplementary shake to a meal or a pre-bed shake, not directly after a workout.

Don’t take Metabolic Drive after you work out.

If you take any protein before your workout, take whey. After workout, take whey. Casein is only to be used before bedtime or as a meal-replacement.

Apparently you didn’t read enough.

Apparently :slight_smile:

Id take fast acting protein and slow acting at the same time… if I could afford them. My ideal post workout would be

1 scoop Whey (in milk), chugged soon after workout
1 scoop Metabolic Drive (in milk) while I cook some chicken.
about 10oz of chicken , with 24-32oz of 2% milk.

Thats about 202 grams of protein of various types and qualities within 1 hour of working out.

"The small intestine has the capacity to absorb 500-700 grams of amino acids.(6) Although the complete digestion and absorption rates do slightly decrease from an overload of protein, it’s not that big of a drop.

Besides, not every last amino acid will be used for muscle tissue. It also serves as an energy source as well as a key component in important hormones and neurotransmitters. You’re better off consuming a higher amount to ensure that there’s sufficient amounts of amino acids available for muscle tissue."
