    Icon13 Pre workout/Post workout Supps

    Hi, i am going to restart training again after resting a bit cause i had a knee injury and i was looking to get some advice on what sort supplements to use for pre and post workout. I am looking to gain mass, since i;ve lost a lot of weight, but also to keep the flab off. thanks in advance for the help.

    I already have the basics, whey, casein, multivitamin, multimineral but cant make a choice with the rest.

    Pre I would go for a protein shake and get some getorate during training. Post workout I would go for some whey with dextrose and maybe some creatine. Stick to te basics for a while, they are proved and can provide te help you need atm.

    Plus look into joint support like glucosamine+chrondotin+fish oil for your knee.

    im with philo, whey before training is a must, also i take 5 g of creatine malate preworkout. during training i try to get in bcaa's, and after is a banano or two and a protein shake with 5 g of creatine. the basic stuff, that works.


    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate;
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Banana's are high in fructose, thus not an ideal source after post workout unless your refilling Liver glycogen. Grape juice, dextrose, maltodextrin are superior for spiking insulin/refilling muscle glycogen

    although i do enjoy the occasional banana:carduforvip
