Hi everyone.. I am new to crossfit but not new to training. I have been doing traditional bodybuilding training for almost 15 years. In an effort to totally change my style of training I am adopting crossfit methodology. My question pertains to post workout nutrion. Traditional training for me has been followed by a PWO shake with 50 grams of whey isolate, and 90 grams of dextrose with creatine and glutamine. Now... with the zone eating plan to accompany this type of training, such an insuline response/spike is certainly looked down upon. I only ask this question as it is the type of recovery that I have followed for years. Traditional bodybuilding methodology wants a glucose spike to replentish lost glycogen stores after training and since you are in such an anabolic state, that simple sugar uptake does not lead to fat loss.

Any help on understanding the post workout fuel you all take in would be helpfull.

90 grams of dextrose would make me puke.

From the search feature regarding your thoughts on post workout nutrition(w/f safe):

I found 687 hits on "post workout nutrition".

Here is a link (w/f safe) to information on protein and what it is and how it works. Very good read:

Good luck. =)

I have found the second part in the google cache. Just do a google search after the complete URL of the second part and choose "from cache".

Result for me: (w/f safe) /mcdonald/protein-02.htm+ 02.htm&hl=de&ct=clnk&cd=1&gl=at&client=firefox-a
