The Definitive Pre, During, and Post Workout Nutrition Discussion Thread
I am told that this will be moderated, and trolls and morons will be deleted. Likewise, noise of the sake of noise will be deleted. What is permitted? Discussion on the aforementioned typoc from a scientific and/or practical level. All comments must be back up with reference to *something*.
"Bro whey rocks!" doesn't work.
"Using whey post workout over three months produced better gains for me and my training partner then a whole food meal..." does work. So does scientific literature.
Cool? Oh, and any jokes about Robert are permitted as well.
Shall we kick it off? My personal opinion, based on limited research I have seen, and anecdotal feedback of my self and many others tells me that FOR BODY COMPOSITION, the following is the best approach for MOST:
Pre = EAAs and a small amount of simple carbs (20g or so).
During = if anything, BCAAs
Post = whey, plus a slow released protein (prefer casien) plus some simple carbs (10-15 grams) plus some slower released carbs.
This is nutrition only, I am not talking about other goodies like CEE, Citruline Malate, NO stuff, and so on. Nor am I talking energy boosters.
