Pre-workout nutrition, post-workout Shake & Post-Workout Meal
Hi, I recently learned how important the three meals are for good bodybuilding. I am attempting to put on muscle and need some good advice. Read thru lots of articles and confused. Good Sensible advice from an experienced bodybuilder is appreciated. Thanks in anticipation.
Pre-Workout Nutrition: I plan to reach gym at 6 am in morning and can take my pre-workout nutrition at 5 am. I can take one scoop of ON Whey in plain water. That will take care of the protein. My question is: From the below options WHICH ONE should I take along with the Whey: 1) Raw Red Apple 2) Dozen of Soaked Almonds 3) Sweet Potato 4) Few spoons of Boiled Quaker Oats
My exercise Regime (90 minutes) from 5.40 am onwards is as follows: Moderate Walk to gym for 20 minutes (reaching gym at 6 am), Stretching and Fitness exercises (free body) for 20 minutes, Self-weight exercises for 10 minutes, 40 minutes of INTENSE Weight Training.(finishing gym at 7.10 am)
Post-workout Shake: Immediately after my workout (within 5 minutes- 7.15 am) I will take one scoop ON whey in water. I do not want to take dextrose (Am not sure about side effects). Can somone suggest something more natural to fill in for the Simple Carbs?
Post-Workout Meal/ Breakfast (1 hour after workout- 8.15 am): Here i think i am pretty right with my choice. please confirm.
1 Bowl Oats (in water) with flaxseed crush and handful soaked almonds and
1 Banana and
2 Boiled Egg Whites (scrambled)+ some pepper and salt to taste and
1 Sweet Potato
Waiting to hear from the experts.. Some additional info.. I do my 90 minutes exercise 6 days a week with alternating the 40 minute intense weight training for different parts of the body. And yes, I am am Vegetarian.. Can think of Having eggs only if they are a must. But wont have any meat products.
