PWO Meal


#1

I know that after a workout I need to consume a drink that's 2:1 ratio. But what are some examples of some meals that you guys eat PWO.


#2

Typically I like a cup and a half of skim milk, 1 banana, a half cup of blue berries, a tablespoon and a half of gatorade powder, 1 scoop whey, tsp. glutamine and tsp creatine. Also I'll throw some green tea in there to vary the thickness of the shake.


#3

Creatine and Glutamine don't interact well, FYI. Creatine is supposed to hog all the receptors.


#4

Just whey and some maltodextin and some dextrose would be ideal. Could add creatine.


#5

Agreed. Then, wait a couple hours and get a good P/C/F meal in.


#6

After my w/o today for instance.

This is after 2 1/2 scoops of Surge. About an hour later or so.

Chicken Breast
1 FULL bag frozen stir fry veggies
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 scoop Metabolic Drive
1/4 cup walnuts
1 cup bluberries

Various spices etc.

FULL belly LOL Good Chit though does the job.


#7

As Phil says I'd only wait an hour till having a proper meal after the pwo meal.

Just seems to work better.
