I’ve been working out after work from about 6:30PM to 8:30PM for the last 5 years or so and it usually consists of 45-60 min of weight lifting, 15 min of abs, and about 25 min cardio. Figure at least 4 or 5 days a week (basically whwen ever I can) and recently Ive hit as plateau or at least it feels like progress has slowed.
My lifts are ok, and I still look very muscular but I want more lol so I’ve been decreasing the rest time between sets, doing more super set, drop sets, etc anyhting to incease the intensity but I have some questions about the PWO meal.
Since lift after work, ususally I slam down a 100% whey sahke (2 scoops w/ 5g creatine) in the car on the way home and by the time I shower it’s usually 8:30PM. I’ve been thinkning about using dextrose PWO but I usually stay away from sugars completely so I am not sure how it will effect my BF. Would eating plain white rice with my dinner’s everynight during the week be an ok carb source?
I usually go to sleep around 11:30 and I feel like taking in a lot of carbs before bed I know is not good but I want to make sure my meal is best for recovery. Any suggestions? Whats evereyone else doing?
