    Whats in your Post Work Out Shake?

    What in your PWO shake?

    PeptoPro 15g, Creatine 5g, 5g Glutamine, carbs in cocnut water.

    Or MG's Powdered Muscle from true protein.com in water.

    Or Whey Iso/Banana, then solid meal 45mins later, largest meal of the day with protein, carbs, fats.

    I have been under the understanding that fructose is not ideal for post-workout sugars/carbs because the majority of it is stored as liver glycogen as opposed to muscle glycogen (which is what we all ideally want after a workout). I used to eat bananas and other fruits with my post-workout shake until I came across information that suggested fructose isn't ideal for post-workout. Glucose, sucrose (table sugar) or any corn-derived carbohydrate is ideal for glycogen storage in the muscle rather than the liver.

    Of course, for an insulin spike, fructose will do! It is just less likely to replenish glycogen storage in muscle tissue compared to glycogen storage in the liver.

    I actually tried this today and it was very nice. Had to add water though as the juice from the oranges was not enough... Perhaps I need bigger oranges!

    I use 45 grams of whey isolate, along with 10 or 12 pixy sticks. Ive done this routine now for over a year. Better than any AAS......blah! I do like it though and it does in fact make my muscles look fuller, especially if I have the cialis pump going.

    Small exert from Alan Aragon's research...

    To put another nail in the coffin of the insulin spiking objective, post-exercise glycogen resynthesis is biphasic.25 Unlike the subsequent “slow” phase which can last several hours, the initial “rapid” phase of glycogenesis lasting 30-60 minutes immediately post-exercise is not dependent upon insulin. Maximizing post-workout hyperinsulinemia may be beneficial for athletes with more than a single exhaustive endurance-containing training bout separated by less than approximately 8 hours, but in all other cases, the benefit in “spiking” insulin is nil.

    Is this a medical / scientific study or just Aragon's opinion?

    If its a study.......do you have a link?

    Tonight was 3 scoops of isopure chocolate
    2 big bananas
    about 10oz of vanilla unsweetened almond milk
    Cup of ice
    And 1/3 a jar of omega 3 infused jiff peanut butter lol

    would have added a couple scoops of BCAA's but I ran out

    Bear...below is the entire portion of the review...there is plenty of information available debunking the need for PWO insulin spikes. Feel free to give google a ride and read a few.


    Is It Necessary to “Spike” Insulin Post-workout?

    Another concern of the fat-free-post-workout camp is the blunting of the insulin response. The rationale of maximizing the insulin response is to counteract the catabolic nature of the post-trained state, switching the hormonal milieu into an anabolic one, thus speeding recovery. Although this might benefit those who train fasted or semi-fasted, many don’t realize that a pre-exercise meal (and in some cases the mid-exercise meal) is doing more than enough spiking of insulin levels for anticatabolic purposes.

    It’s an important objective to not only maximize muscle protein synthesis, but also minimize protein breakdown. However, the latter doesn’t require a massive insulin spike, but rather just a touch beyond basal/resting levels. To illustrate this, Rennie & colleagues found that even during a sustained high blood level of amino acids, no further inhibition of muscle protein breakdown occurred beyond insulin elevation to approximately 15 μU/l,20 which is slightly above normal basal levels of 5-10 μU/l.

    To reiterate, the pre-exercise meal can have profound effects on insulin levels that surpass the length of the training bout. Tipton’s team found that as little as 6g essential amino acids + 35g sucrose taken immediately before exercise (45-50 minutes of resistance training) was enough to keep insulin elevated to roughly 4x above fasting levels 1-hour post-exercise.21 It took 2 hours post-exercise for insulin to return to resting levels. A similar insulin response was seen with 20g whey by itself taken immediately preworkout.22 If carbs were added to the pre-training protein, there would be yet a greater insulin response.

    As far as solid food goes, Capaldo’s team examined various metabolic effects during a five hour period after ingesting a meal composed of 75g carb (47%), 37g prot (26%), and 17g fat (27%).23 Although this study didn’t examine training effects, this meal would make a nice post-workout meal due to its absolute (and proportional) amounts of protein and carbohydrate. The fat-fearing camp would warn against the meal’s fat content interfering with the insulin response. However, this meal was able to raise insulin 3 times above fasting levels within 30 minutes of consumption. At the 60 minute mark, insulin was 5 times greater than fasting. At the 300 minute mark, insulin levels were still double the fasting level.

    Elliot and colleagues compared the effect of fat-free milk, whole milk, and a higher dose of fat-free milk (to match the calories of the whole milk) taken 60 minutes post-resistance exercise.24 Whole milk was superior for increasing net protein balance. Interestingly, the calorie-matched dose of fat free milk containing 14.5g protein, versus 8.0g in the whole milk (an 81% advantage), but still got beaten. The investigators speculated over the possible mechanisms behind the outcome (insulin response, blood flow, subject response differences, fat content improving nitrogen retention), but end up dismissing each one in favor of concluding that further research is necessary to see if extra fat calories ingested with an amino acid source will increase muscle protein synthesis. Lingering questions notwithstanding, post-workout milkfat was the factor that clinched the victory – at least in overnight-fasted subjects.

    To put another nail in the coffin of the insulin spiking objective, post-exercise glycogen resynthesis is biphasic.25 Unlike the subsequent “slow” phase which can last several hours, the initial “rapid” phase of glycogenesis lasting 30-60 minutes immediately post-exercise is not dependent upon insulin. Maximizing post-workout hyperinsulinemia may be beneficial for athletes with more than a single exhaustive endurance-containing training bout separated by less than approximately 8 hours, but in all other cases, the benefit in “spiking” insulin is nil.

    In line with this theme, interesting research has surfaced in recent years challenging the idea that highly glycemic (and thus insulinemic) carbohydrates taken post-workout are the optimal for recovery. Erith’s team found no difference between post-exercise high- and low-glycemic index (GI) carbohydrate intake on exercise performance the following day.26 In a similar study, Stevenson’s team actually saw better next-day performance in subjects who consumed low-GI post-exercise carbohydrate than those who consumed high-GI post-exercise carbohydrate.27

    Is spiking insulin necessary post-workout? Generally not.

    -No greater inhibition of muscle protein breakdown has been seen beyond insulin elevation to approximately 15 μU/l, which is slightly above resting/basal levels of 5-10 μU/l.

    -In one study, whole milk was superior for increasing net protein balance post-workout, despite the calorie-matched dose of fat free milk containing 81% more protein.

    -The initial 30-60 minute “rapid” phase of glycogenesis immediately post-exercise is not dependent upon insulin.

    -There’s no need to attempt to spike insulin for recovery purposes since maximal effects are seen at minimal elevations. Simply getting enough total substrate surrounding the training bout suffices, at least within the context of a 24-hour separation between exhaustive training of the same muscles. Multiple depleting endurance-type bouts per day (i.e., < 8 hours between bouts) may be the exception to this rule.

    -On a related tangent, it’s been commonly recommended to maximize post-exercise hyperglycemia and hyperinsulinemia by consuming high-GI carbohydrates. However, this strategy has been seen to offer no benefit on next-day performance, and one recent study even saw endurance impairment.

    Although my shake often includes a banana I agree with you. The only time its necessary is if the individual is an endurance athlete or doing say 2 a days for football or something. In those 2 cases the Glycogen stores needs replenishing as quickly as possible. In all other cases glycogen stores are replenished just fine and the cost of simple carbs far outweighs any perceived benefit - especially when it doesn't exist.

    Yup...if doing 2 hardcore w/o in an 8 hour period then by all means but I would concentrat on a proper pre-w/o shake and carbs that will maintain will be plenty.

    On the other hand I believe in a feeding window within 5 hours or so after a workout of crabs and protein.

    im also a converted believer in carbs not necissary for protein synthesis. im showing good gains and only taking in 40 grams of carbs (mainly frum nuts). heres a study i ran across

    Coingestion of carbohydrate wi... [Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab. 2007] - PubMed - NCBI

    Ill agree that post workout shakes and "meals" are for the most part bogus. I think if a persons diet is spot on, thats the best option. I still drink my whey isolate and pixy stick though. Always have, so it is habit I guess.

    I time my training session 1 hr after eating. Then by the time I go to the gym and train my post training meal is nothing more than another normal meal. I still stick to eating every three hrs from the minute I get up till bed time

    if you use a good tasting chocolate whey powder like muscle tech's nitro tech, it's pretty good, or if using unflavored whey, add another banana to make more banana flavour..
