    No need to take this much whey protein before working out. Some protein is good but this is too much IMO. Also the arginine and carnitine are not needed as your body can synthesize them on its own if it's deficient.

    Depeding on your size and weight, you could go up for the protein and you definately need double the amount of dextrose as you have protein in your PWO shake. Again the arginine and carnitine IMO are not nedded.

    eat post-workout meal 1 1/2 hrs after workout
    protein,carbs
    Edit in bold.

    good to see somebody not subscribing to the commercial supplements theory.

    I say eat your meal closer to 1 hour before training. And assuming you have enough protein in that meal to satisfy your daily needs, you dont need a shake. Id drop everything but the Vitargo and citrullin malate, and add l-tyrosine, taurine, and a banana. You can also add 200mg caffeine if you want.

    Post-workout is fine, but again drop everything but the vitargo and citrulline malate. Add 1000mg vitamin C, 500mg NAC, 40-50g protein in a 1:2 ratio to a 50/50 maltodextrin/dextrose mix (which would be 40g protein/80g carbs, or 50/100...depending on what satifies your daily protein needs)

    I am assuming you are trying to put on size? If you are cutting I would drop the carbs to maybe a 1:1 ratio to protein.

    a meal 2.5 hours before training...shit i'm eating every 1.5-2 hours a day....that wouldnt work...lets just say my workout last 1 hour, that would mean i went 3.5 hours without eating a thing...i disagree here....
    i agree with the suareezay on the solid meal. and as far as post-workout meal. i have a 2:1 carbs-protein ration...mainly high glycemic carbs like dextrose or malto and 15-20 of glutamine
