Postworkout Shake Old & New: Comments?

GHey guys,

OLD PWO SHAKE:

- 500ml Skimmed/Low Fat Milk
- 2 & 3/4 Scoops Whey

All in all this came to about 75g protein. Is this too much? Im guessing you gusy are gonna say it is lol.


NEW PWO SHAKE (To begin after holidays in August along with my new workout):

- 400ml Water
- 50g Glucose
- 2 Scoops of Whey (45g protein)
- Possibly some creatine (5g) and maybe some BCAA's

Sound better?

Also, I hear you should have 50:50 dextrose/glucose:maltodextrin - I can get my hands on glucose no problem but am having difficulty finding maltodextrin, any ideas, or is it totally necessary?

Cheers!

    Hi there.

    Welcome to MT.

    What are your goals? ? ?

    Generally, 75 grams of protein PWO is far too much in my opinion.

    Lower the protein and include more carbs instead.

    Dextrose/maltodextrin are fine.

    What is the rest of your diet like? ? ?

    If you are having 50 grams of carbs PWO then reduce the whey 35-45 grams.

    Why reduce the whey man?

    Also, diet is a meal every 3 hrs but I tend to live on protein shakes - this sounds really bad but I dont have a half bad physique.

    Thing is, Im getting a PROPER diet with PROPER foods when hols are over, a new leaf! Gonna use that BULKING ON A BUDGET guide as a benchmark.

    Because in my opinion when you have higher carbs then you can afford to lower the protein.

    indeed

    lean you are just under 140lb

    10% at 190 = 171lb lean

    so in effect 30lb of muscle to be added whilst losing 11lb of fat if my maths are correct (someone correct me if i am wrong)

    thats one mighty change

    if you cant get below 16% BF you are either not putting the effort in or your diet is poor

    16% is high

    I Would have to agree, and i would set more short term goals with one thing in mind at a time, rather than a very difficult long term one, that has two conflicing goals.

    (Excuse my maths below too if they are off, been 12 years since school, though not sure what sort of excuse that is, lol)
    If you want to get to 190lbs at 10%, and are presently at 18% at 170lbs, then aim to get to say 155lbs at 10% Bodyfat.
    If you maintain the present muscle mass you will look larger even at a smaller weight, and then you can start looking at adding 35lbs of Lean Mass, which is perfectly acceptable in a 2-3 Year period, and the bonus of keeping lean, is you will notice every pound you gain, but that is just my recommendation.

    Agree on the 16% thing, getting from 20% to 15% is easy, 15% to 10% is much harder
