PWO Meal


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.


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.


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


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


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


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.


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

Just seems to work better.
