Re: Effective Post-Workout Nutrition?

I eat a sweet potato and I consume a 27g scoop of whey protein. Works for me.

Glenn Pendlay does. I don't have any evidence for why that may or may not be true but based on this you seem to think the opposite.
A workout like that would certainly deplete glycogen, but not to the same degree as distance runners do with their day after day of prolonged, grueling sessions.

I wasn't referring to 3-4 hour sessions of resistance training as I would not expect someone to be doing that.

If losing body fat was the #1 goal then Nitrean or Nitrean+. For any other goal, Opticen.

Re: Effective Post-Workout Nutrition?

I usually eat watermelon, raisins, or coconut water post workout and found protein immediately after my workout to be unnecessary. An hour or two later, I eat a complete meal.

Out of curiosity, where do you get your coconut water? Brand? Straight from the nut?
