    Question PWO nutrition after AM AND PM workouts?

    If you split you're workout into AM and PM workouts (i.e. chest in morning and triceps/abs in evening) can you consume a shake with dextrose both times. I'm currently cutting and I was planning to have a shake of 40 g whey/40 g dextrose after each workout (as opposed to one shake of 40 g whey, 80 g dextrose if I had one workout). Is this ok?

    If you are cutting, I'd highly advise you DON'T train twice a day, that's for sure. When are you doing cardio, I don't see that anywhere? It's fine to do cardio a.m. and a workout p.m., yes, but two workouts in one day while you are cutting can really lead to over-training, lethargy, and no progess at all.

    Better off hittin' tri's w/chest while you are there, and get out and REST/RECOVER/CHILL. You require far more pwo nutrition for chest than you do for small parts like tris/abs.........you also aren't taking into account the 2nd pwo meal that usually comes after the first one, but perhaps that's not in your scheme of meals/timing/etc.

    Double shots of sugar, even pwo, are not a good idea while cutting, no. Just my take on it, you'll have to see how you come out looking!

    I am doing cardio first thing on the morning on an empty stomach.

    As for for the two workouts, this is not a long term thing. I'm starting a new job in 10 days and wanted to anhiliate myself for a short period to shock my body - but you make a valid point. Also, I rest 2-3 minutes between sets because I lift heavy (4-10 rep range). Doing Chest and Tris together makes the workout last over 1.5 h, I'm worried about cortisol getting too high.

    1-2 slice Kraft fat free cheese

    2. 6-8 oz Chicken
    Salad
    1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.
    tablespoon of grated romano cheese

    3. Tuna
    1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil

    4. 40 g whey
    tablespoon of flax
