Pre and Post Workout Ideas
« on: September 11, 2012, 09:50:47 pm »

Now I know I "could just use" Gatorade but they're really expensive and I don't know whether they are actually effective or not.
Do you have any ideas of what to use before and after workouts. Do I just buy powders and stuff to mix in to make a shake? If so, which ones work well.
I mainly need it for before and after tennis, basketball, or lifting.

Thanks

Generally after a weightlifting or other intensive workout you should have some protein + carbs, preferably in a shaker with water. Exactly what you have depends on what your goals are though, strength gain, mass gain, fat loss etc.

Pre-workout: read this thread: http://www.adarq.org/forum/nutrition-supplementation/pre-workout-supplements/

Post workout milk's quite good. If your diet allows for whole milk that might even better

One study did find that full fat milk promoted protein synthesis better than skim milk following training but nobody is sure why.

Gatorade is okay if you're sweating a lot but if you just lifted weights then protein+carbs will prob be better. Btw milk is pretty good at hydrating too if you don't mind drinking milk.

A gallon a day of milk will keep any athlete healthy, happy and well hydrated  :D

If you are only 14 you should be eating your parents out of house and home. Whole food should be your best friend. Pre-workout should always be carbs+pro+ healthy fat. The fat is there is slow digestion to keep the breakdown on a more consistant level through training. Post work is similar just cut out the fat and look to be in the range of 2:1-3:1, Carb to Protein ration(depending on activity level).

I AM SUSPICIOUS. TROLLS WORKING IN TANDEM. BEWARE.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

It's very hard to beat chocolate milk in terms of practical simplicity and cheapness plus it's at every gas station. So after your gym workout stop and get gas for your car (assuming you drive) and get some chocolate milk too.
Goal

windmill consistently/ touch top of the square consistently



weight= 193
height= 6'3 1/2
highest touch= top of the square, which is 11'4

everyone gave you good suggestions.. being that you're 14, the biggest thing is just eating the right foods.. you need meals packed with protein and veggies.

if you wanted to go the supplements route:

morning: milk (chocolate milk even better) + 1 scoop of whey
pre-workout: a mix of gatorade powder (1 scoop) and whey (1 scoop) + water (8-12oz)
post-workout: milk (chocolate milk even better) + 1 scoop of whey

that'll do it..

but really understand that it's the REAL FOOD that is most important in this stage of development... veggies + chicken/beef, whole grain pasta/rice/breads etc... limit or completely eradicate the junk/junk carbs/sodas from your diet.

peace
