    I drink water during the workout.

    It's called a POST-workout shake for a reason.

    I'm there to workout, not to eat.

    To each his own, just find what works for you. Usually those who think this works better for them, are suffering from shitty/inadequate meals being eaten prior to the workout session. If that area is addressed, you shouldn't have to drink anything when you should be working.

    I used to do that when i bulking and eating a shit load of food...still saw better workouts from it...now my workouts are about 2 hrs of running calsthenics (sp? lol) and swimming....a pro+dex shake would do more harm than good.

    If you take anything at all during your workout, some BCAA's in your water would be the only thing I'd suggest.

    Exactly. So if you want to find out if its valid or not try it and compare it to what you were doing.

    Totally. Some will love it, others like me will have no part of it.

    There is simply no need for myself personally.

    so, the majority say good meal of carbs and pro 1-2 hours pre, followed by a shake of either Dext/Whey = #1 in SC's theory; fruit,yogurts,whey, skim or oats coming in 2nd........and then maybe beans and tuna a distant third.........only thing we really agree on is we need the carbs+protein immidiately and leave out all fats........

    I honestly see no reason to do anything during lifting than sipping water, do you actually think drinking a shake during is going to take effect while you are still working out?

    Just wondering, but i see people do it...to each their own..i will stick to PWO personally.

    Possibly, I could see drinking a BCAA or amino mix during training as beneficial as you have increased the blood flow and nutrient uptake of the muscles you are working, which to me is why a Pro/carb pre-workout should be just as critical in ones diet as Post Workout. You can actualy deliver nutrients during the exercise to promote better he****g.

    Good point.....Hey G - I think everyone would benefit from looking at you macros for your current daily diet, vs. bulk vs cut.....you have some good theories.

    My macro's pertain to me, so it probably wouldn't help anyone. As far as meal structure I have my carbs around my workouts and I keep protein high and take in my EFA's. Dieting (cutting/bulking) is not quite as complicated as you would like it to be Flex
