    Why apart from a shake. You make it sound like it’s the best. first of all forget this snack business, just eat proper and regular meals. have a bowl of oats and some protein (chicken, eggs, whatever) about 1-1.5 hrs before workout.

    It is. Right before training a shake is best as long as it’s the right type of shake.

    Pre- has been shown to be most effective and post- is pretty good as well and we can theorize that the same mix taken during training will help with recovery, suppress cortisol and kick start protein synthesis.

    Hydrolysed protein (the smaller the average peptide size the better), 1 part, and high II carbs, 2 parts, in water, with leucine and dl-phenylalanine. Obviously the closer you can approximate this the better.

    It’s probably best to do this on an empty stomach so a meal an hour or so before hand is all that’s needed.

    A claim, that leaves me slack jawed, is that chocolate milk is somehow ideal. Milk is 80% casein, that’s a slow protein and in experiments which examined peri-workout nutrition the casein mix pretty much did nix.

    if your gonna eat a meal pre-workout it needs to be very far away from the work out window, because the protein in meat takes a while to digest and to reach peak levels in your blood stream the good old amino acids.

    if you eat too close to the work out period, all the blood in your body is going to be trying to digest the meal, which means less blood for your muscles.
