using oats PWO question.

I've tried various carbs sources PWO, dextrose, maltodextrin, waxy maiz starch etc.

I've also tried dropping the pwo simple carbs for complex carbs ppwo (on a cut)

When using WMS I was taking the WMS in water 30 mins before end of workout, then whey in water immediately on finishing workout. This was to allow the WMS to be absorbed as quick as possible.

Now I'm looking at using finely milled oats (I mill them myself) for a pwo carb source. I can mix them with water in a shaker and drink down 50g easily.

But if I take them together with whey directly pwo, won't they slow down the whey being absorbed ?

My question is, should I take milled oats in water 30 mins before end of workout, then whey in water pwo, but in this case to prevent the whey being slowed down, not the carbs. Or can I just take the two shakes together pwo ?

    Have them at the same time.

    You are likely to lose some of the fibre from the oats when you blend it into powder.

    Also, the whey in liquid form will mean that it is released quickly.

    ok, switched to taking the oats in a shake together with whey (in a different shake) directly PWO (in changing room).

    For a while I'd been taking the oaots half way through my wo thinking this might help the absorbtion issue and also give me a little boost. But honestly I wasn't feeling good doing it this way, I think I also wasnt feeling particularly good while I was doing the same with WMS... a bit sluggish. Last night was much better.

    Wow, that would be my definition of over-complicating things!

    Have a whey & oats shake as soon as is practical after your workout. Job done.

    not really, the protocol for WMS is standard procedure and essential if the full effects of WMS are to be achieved.

    lol. The extra benefits you'd get by being overly anal about this particular procedure are probably negated by the energy you've expended worrying about it.

    I'm all for applying good practice & proven science to my diet, just wondering about whether to separate whey & oats PWO seems like overkill IMO. Each to their own though.

    I know what you mean. But given the fact that there are scientific studies conducted on the benefits of consuming carbs during workout etc. proves that I'm not the only one concerned about such issues.

    I wouldn't like to guess how many posts concerning pwo shakes have been posted here.
