As I mentioned a few days ago, I started a new Pre & Intra Nutrition program. I wake up, have 60g of cheap carbs like Gatorade, and 30g of Whey Isolate which is all about an hour before the gym. 15 minutes before the workout I have another 20g of carbs, and 20g of protein. Once at the gym, I sip 50g of carbs mixed with a scoop of BCAA and also sip on a 45g Whey Isolate protein shake.
Basically, what all this does is the carbs spike your blood sugar, and keep the insulin high, as well as the glycogen in your muscles. The insulin carries the protein & BCAAs into your muscles much better than without it. While you’re working out, your body is screaming for nutrients and you’re keeping it stocked, so it’s soaking them up like a sponge.
I’ve been doing it for three days now. It could simply be a placebo effect, but I swear it’s working. I’m real strong on my workouts, and my energy is through the roof. On top of that, for the rest of my day, I swear I look bigger than usual, like the pump is sticking around. It’s nuts. Tomorrow I start the bodybuilding style training, so I’m gonna see how my body reacts to that.
