Re: Post workout nutrition for a big guy?

Put strictly factually, the idea with PWO intake is basically to address the elevated metabolic state you've created. You provide a supply of fast-digesting protein and carbs for use in muscle repair and rebuilding. The insulin spike from the quick carbs is also supposed to kill the catabolic process, increase protein uptake, and restore the glycogen your muscles have lost.

A more banal purpose of your PWO meal is just to recharge you in the general sense, so you can go about your day...

Now you guys can fight it out as to the legitimacy of it all.
