PWO Shakes Based on Massive Eating

I was just curious if anyone could tell me if the same nutritional guidelines apply to cardio as they do to weights?

JB suggests that a carb+protein shake be ingested during training and after training; each containing .4kg of whey and .8kg of simple carbs. For me thats roughly 350 calories.

I was wondering if…
(a) this applies to cardio workouts
(b) if the same 3-6hr anabolic window to eat carbs applies as well

thx guys, fyi u probably need to be familiar with JB’s work to answer this.

That is goals dependent, individual and also depends on the type of cardio done
