My normal PWO meal - Ok?
I workout at lunch and usually go to subway and get a salad. The salad consists of:
- ~75% Baby Spinach
- ~25% lettuce
- Cherry tomatoes
- Banana Peppers
- Shredded Carrots
- Black Oilves
- 1 Pack Fat Free Ranch
I drink a medium drink of something sugary like HC, Powerade, etc. I have always felt like this is good PWO nutrition. Am I way off?

Wheres the protein? This would be better PPWO with some chicken and a carb.. I would also stay away from sports drinks, unless its gatorade and you REALLY need it.

Oh dam, I forgot bro. It has ham, roast beef, and turkey

Ahh ok. My guess is this is the most convenient and/or the only thing you can do? Is this PWO or PPWO?

PWO = Post Workout right? Either way, that's what it is.
I usually eat a marathon bar (or something similar) with a protein shake about 30-45 minutes before working out. 27g Carb / 55g pro / 8g fat

Oh, failed to answer your question. It's definitely the most convienient, but I can do pretty much anything. I've always told myself it was a good meal for post workout, but I finally decided to ask someone that really knows. Little slow sometimes...

Well PWO you usually need a fast absorbing protein along with the carb to spike your insulin levels. I would suggest you bring a pro/dex shake with you and just down it as soon as you're done lifting then save the trip to subway for 45 mins after you have had your shake/finished working out.

That's what I needed to know and that makes perfect sense. Thanks a lot bro.

One more thing, how much dex should I use? Here's the info for the powder I just found on bulk nutrition
Servings Per Container: 227
Amount Per Serving? % Daily Value ?
Calories from fat 0?
Total fat 0 G?
Total Carbohydrate 4g
Sugars?? 4 G????? ?
Sodium?? 0 MG??? 0? ?
Protein?? 0 G????? ?

You really might want to consider just getting a shake with around 50g protein, 50g maltodextrin and 50g dextrose.

i advise getting the ON whey double rich choclate also, it tastes great even without the dex, adding dex is just like a bonus for PWO, and like these bro's say, after your whey/dex shake PWO, wait 60-90 minutes and take the ride to subway for the salad you mentioned above. sounds like a nice PPWO meal IMO.

i didnt get it from you but i did steal it from someone on another board. so its NOT urs actually, so i think i'll just keep it.
08-12-2004, 12:52 PM #19
bro seriously, if you stole that from another board it was my username. I cut that image down in photoshop myself. It was much bigger and I can guarantee no one else cut the image EXACTLY like I did. That's just wrong man...
08-12-2004, 12:54 PM #20
maybe it is urs from another board, i'll try to find the handle i got it from. ur really getting bent out of shape over it? i'll take it off if it reaslly upsets you, but it is just a picture.
