    skipping the pwo shake

    i was just curious what happens if you dont take a pwo shake after lifting. i know all the benefits but what are some of the main negative/positive issues with not having one. i tried to explained pwo nutrition to a buddy and that was a question i couldnt answer for him. thanks

    well muscle repair is nill
    It's catabolic rather then Anabolic
    It's right out counter productive. Why even go work out then?

    Listen to what you are saying. You answered your own question. "He's strong as hell, but doesnt put on weight"

    Humm.... Proper nutrition is 85% of the game.

    With all the data supporting PWO why not do it. Prove it to your buddy. For a little more than the price of a candy bar you can have a PWO shake. And it takes less than 2 minutes to drink.

    I drink carbo force before and during. Mass recovery after. 1 Hour later eat a High protein moderate carb meal. 1500-1700 calories in 3 hours. Good stuff.
