    what should i be eating pre and post workout to increase energy for the workout and also promote recovery after the workout?

    i've heard a lot of different opinions on it and i'm looking for some more.

    this is going to sound retarded and i should already know this, but does eating a shitload of protein actually help decrease soreness from a workout?

    BCAA's, whey, and carbs. You can keep it pretty simple and be fine.

    quick absorbing carbs. Redbull is great pre workout, and then post a protein shake with simple carbs that abosrb quickly is best. Anthing else is nit picking.

    prolly not but it helps to give your body what it needs to rebuild. BCAAs would most likely be better for that.

    I think it was Purevel that said he just drinks a gatorade and a protien shake postworkout. Maybe he threw some BCAAs in there as well. I just stick to the protein and gatorade though. He seems to know what he was is doing

    you think? Yes, 99% of anyone in this forum doesn't need to be concerned with anything more complex than what has already been suggested. And that includes me and anyone else who isn't on serious drugs or competing.

    I would add that if you are getting enough protein (1g/lb or more), BCAA's aren't needed by 99% of this forum. The only difference you are going to see is in your bank account.

    I seem to notice a difference when I take them pre/during-workout.

    Notice them in what sense - energy during workout, recovery, etc? Have you tried whey and/or carbs instead to see if you get the same/similar response?

    btw, not trying to be a dick at all, just trying to figure out exactly what you mean :)

    a higher gi carb would be better than oats. Oats are really the slowest digesting carb there is, you want something that your system sucks right up quickly.

    So I've just restarted working out again (With the beginning of school I slacked a bit) and so far I've been working out 4-5 days a week (Weekdays only, my weekends tend to get a bit blasted but I do golf,paintball, work on weekends so I'm not just lounging) and I have the usual routine of cardio (I usually mix it up between the treadmill, eliptical, and the goold old standby of the track, and by mix up I mean randomly every day) and then I'll do some lifting on the machines. I know most people do legs one day , arms the next etc but I feel fine doing both. Would it be better to focus on one one day work on all aspects of the arms one day, then the legs the next, then other parts of the upper body and how would I go about doing that. Keep in mind the YMCA I work out has a year and a half old facility that has nearly every and any machine that I could want/use.

    (Yes I'm aware my post is quite broken)

    don't use machiones, they are hurting you.

    machines are not allowing you to use stabilizer muscles, and are issolating certain muscles, so, they are opening you up injury, when you try to use multiple muscles/ anythign that requires stability. Free weights, will allow you to train the stabilizer muscles, and will leave you less prone to an injury.
    Not to mention most machines are just ghey... :greddy:
    If you are injured, ignore this.
