    Default Work+ Gym

    Hey Rob,
    Just a quick background to my situation. Im a 24yo physiotherapist in a hospital where i work from 8 till 4.30 every day except the weekend. This means i get exhausted from walking, lifting, holding, treating,... Patients all day my energy levels are not 100 by the time i hit the gym. I try to eat every 2 hours but i only have a big meal at 7am, 8am, 12.30pm and then 5pm, 8pm and 10pm. i also take protein shakes and pre workout supps but i want to get thebest and most out of my workouts and my day in general. What other supplements in general (not brand specific) could you recommend me? I want to gain more muscle just like everyone else. Hope you understand my situation and can help me. Thanks. Beck

    There are times during the day when you go longer then I would suggest without food. If you absolutely can't have any food, you could have a shake or some protein pudding, I would add some time released BCAA's to keep feeding the muscle. I'm not sure what your diet is like but make sure you are getting enough lean protein and low glycemic carbs like oats, sweet potato, brown rice, quinoa etc. I take Glutamine and HMB for recovery, if your trying to build rather then cut, add some creatine into your morning and post workout shake. Something with some caffeine may help before you workout, so you have the energy to really throw down with the weights. Keep me posted!

    Hey man, I try to get low glycemic carbs in all year round, but when I'm not dieting I will also allow myself what ever I want. Since I'm dieting for the USA, my diet is strict and my food is measured.

    I worked out in the gym on and off through my twenties, but started taking it seriously around 27 and competed at 30 for the first time.

    I gave the superset on seated/lying leg curls a try today, it felt pretty awesome. It's definitely something I'm gonna keep in

    Hey Rob,
    saw ur latest workout with victor.... man he is back...hope he does well... u think he is coming back strong???

    also just a quick question. I have come across two contradicting studies. One says simple carbs are better right after workout to restore the glycogen while other says after workout the insulin spike from carbs hinders the GH release which usually peaks up in night and after heavy workout.

    So what should be my approach?? Carbs right after workout or after certain time window??

    thanks
    jai

    Vic is ABSOLUTELY coming back strong. His motivation level and intensity are as high as I've ever seen them. He is a great guy to train with and I am in awe at how fast his body is changing. It will be great to see what happens at the O!

    I always have fast digesting carbs right after I train. (vitargo is not the best tasting, but if you test your glucose levels, it's the most effective) It's has a very pronounced effect, at a moment when your body is screaming for nutrients and insulin is driving those nutrients into the muscle at light speed. GH is important true, but it doesn't have the instant effect on recovery, which is what your body needs after intense training. I'm not convinced your GH production is drastically effected by your bodies own natural production of insulin in response to the nutrition you provide it with during recovery anyway, but either way you slice it, that anabolic window is much more important, IMHO. Feed the damaged muscle, get the repair process underway, restore glycogen, GROW!!!!
