Post HIIT Nutrition

Would my meal after a 20 min HIIT session be the same as a PWO meal (i.e.whey, carbs follwed by PPWO) or would it be just a normal meal (lean protein with carbs or fat).

Reason I ask is the PWO meal is intended to replenish glycogen stores and amino acids after heavy weight training. However HIIT is a different form of exercise.

    You could have a meal.

    That should be fine.

    Maybe I'm doing things wrong, but I only do HIIT during a cut and therefore have minimal carbs post-workout. I have 25g whey protein and only 10g dextrose/malto mix as PWO shake and my PPWO meal consists of only meat and veg.

    Muscle glycogen gets depleted through weight training as well as through CV or HIIT.

    Basically, if I'm on a cut I'll have less carbs PWO and PPWO after HIIT than I would do if I was bulking.

    There is nothing wrong with that, but 10g is not a lot, especially after high intensity exercise such as HIIT and weight training.

    PWO would be an area i would prioritise carbs on a cut.

    Again, please forgive me if I have completely misunderstood as I am very much a layman on the topic.

    As I understand it, it is very difficult, even impossible for people within the weightlifting/gym realm to ever fully deplete their glycogen stores and in fact that is what marathon runners refer to as "hitting the wall".

    On a bulking cycle, supplementing with fast-acting carbs PWO will help to top up glycogen stores quickly, ensuring that any protein you've taken can concentrate on building muscle, however it isn't necessary. The additional calories do help to make sure you're adding weight though.

    On a cutting cycle however, the additional calories can impede your desire to lose weight and it isn't necessary to top up partially depleted glycogen stores to prevent muscle loss.

    Please correct me on anything you think I may have gotten wrong!

    I would always prioritise carbs PWO and PPWO on a cut.

    i reckon that if the PWO has a fair amount of carbs, PPWO would be fine without or with very little carbs, no ?
    something like 50/60g malto/dex PWO

    You could do that.

    I feel they are 2 meals where i would always prioritise carbs though and calories in general.

    Would it be right to say then that on a cut I can have 30g whey/30&30Dex & Malt after good weight session?
