Hey Coach. On the 4:1 or 3:1 ratio for post workout drinks, is there any "magic number" of carbs one should shoot for? For example, I'm 157lbs @ 6% B.F. I'm looking at a 26g carb:6.5g protein PWO drink on days when I really earn it. Then following an hour later with my Shakeology/Protein shake. Should that suffice or should I be looking at a higher carb alternative? Thanks as always!!
Question for you on the Home Direct front... I'm trying to spread the other good word to a roommate in the form of P90X. Undoubtedly he will want the sweet nectar of recovery, but I've got to sell him on it first. If I sign up for Home Direct and we are going two guys to one container we are going to run out before the month is up. Is there a way to increase the frequency and get an early R&R shipment with home direct?
Can you help me with this situation?... I am currently doing a p90x/insanity hybrid... Today I am incorporating insanities upperbody weight training in the rotation, kinda of like what you did with your hybrid...
My question is regarding R&R.... The longest you want to go is about an hour after a workout to take R&R.. However on one day I was going to do Insanities upperbody weights then right after go straight to P90X legs(skipping the back portion) then go straight into ab ripper x... Thats about a 1 1/2 -1;45 total workout time.....
Since I am doing them back to back and my heart rate is staying up the whole time (going down during ab ripper x), and not resting, do you think R&R is not going to be useful ?? or would it be ok since my rate is still high ??
Just ordered R&R today and will provide feedback after I've used it for a while. Tomorrow is day 1 of P90X round 1 so due to shipping time I will have the first week to do P90X without the R&R and should see a difference once I include it into my meal plan post workout.
Hey coach, over the summer I am planning on doing two forms of cardio the first being Insanity asylum, and the next will be 5k training, about 5 times a week. I was considering using optimum nutritions Serious Mass to try and maintain (not lose) the muscle i have gained from p90x. Would you recommend this?
hi coach wanyne
i live outside usa iam from lebanon beirut
in lebanon there is no p90x recovery formula drink and i cant buy this supplement are there any alternative supplement like p90x from GNC products or creating a mix to be same p90x by protein carb and fats
hey coach, quick question but how do you feel about the new and improved formula for the recovery drink. I've had the old formula and loved it but am a little on edge of trying the new one. Does it really taste as bad as people say it does
1-I noticed that the R&R has 5 grams of creatine. I weigh 220lbs, should I add an extra 5 gram scoop to the R&R for post workout drink?
2-Do I need to cycle off the R&R every 2-3 months since it has creatine?
3-Can I add an extra scoop of whey protein to the R&R drink Post workout since it only has 10 grams of protein?
Hey Coach, I just got my first tub of Results and Recovery formula and had a question for you...I see that each serving contains 5g of creatine and was wondering if I could add 5g of creatine monohydrate to the recovery drink during an "on" cycle? I'm 5'9" and 170 lbs, so I didn't know if that would be too much creatine for someone my size, in which case I would just leave out the added creatine. Thanks!
I know you've answered my question already, but many have said that having a carb post workout isn't the right thing to do for the reason that the afterburn of fat will not take place since glycogen will be replaced. For example, it is said that if 500 calories are burned during a cardio exercise, the common individual will burn another 500 calories for the next 24 hours as an afterburn. I've heard that glutamine and bcaa's along with protein are enough to keep one anabolic post workout; therefore, the post workout carb, when fat loss is the primary goal, will not be effective.
Also, are carbs necessary for building muscle post workout, or only to keep one from going into a state of catabolism?
I apologize if I'm going in circles here, but I just want to be sure. Thanks in advance.
I have a question. If my primary goal is to lose fat, yet I still work out so I can build muscle, would you say a post workout carb (for an insulin spike), would be counterproductive in the fat burning process? Usually, I do my weight training and I immediately follow with cardio for 30-35 mins. Then I take my protein shake thereafter. What would you recommend I do?
Hi Coach, I don't know if you'll get this, since your thread was awhile back. Thank you for the information on the expiration date on p90X R & R., I got mine from someone who is moving & it's SEALED & NEW, But when I got home I saw that it expired last month 5/2012. It's June 23, 2012. I will open, smell & taste. Cross fingers hope it's still good. How long is shelf life from the day it was made? Thanks
Hello, coach do you think it is ok to use cellucore c4 before insaity and results and recovery after insaity? Do you think it is ok to do two workout programs a day, the other one is asylum, also is it ok to use cellucore c4 before asylum and results and recovery formula after asylum? I dont do both in the same time period, one is in the morning, the other is at about 6:00 P.M
I just started use the R/R formula and I think it makes a HUGE difference. The workout after my first time taking it, I had so much energy and strength that I blew away my reps/weights and literally killed myself during the arms/shoulders workout. I was at failure on every exercise. I thought for sure I would be so sore today and I'm not at all. I barely feel like I even worked out yesterday. It's truly amazing! I had been extra sore after each workout prior to using R/R and that was with not pushing myself 100% either.
@Dan J Carper That is totally fine. Recovery drinks are most beneficial after long cardio (hour plus) workouts. Otherwise, your glycogen will be replenished throughout the day with normal eating. That sounds great though. Not too many carbs so that your other meals lacking carbs.
Justin, no it's not bad. I can't tell the difference anymore. The removal of fructose and addition of dextrose is a clear win from a recovery stand point. All BB products carry the 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Hey Michael, R&R has 500mg or .5g of creatine, you definitely need to supplement with more creatine. With low creatine, you don't have to cycle R&R. Directly post workout, you don't need more protein. The next meal should have more protein after your R&R.
Eddie your over all fat loss will still be maintained. Again if the carbs/calories are accounted for and part of your day you are at the same spot. What carbs do post workout is replace those glycogen stores but even more importantly spare muscle. Carbs work best post workout alongside protein (and aminos) to further protein synthesis. These nutrients do better together than separately. BCAAs can definitely help with this, but carbs shouldn't be feared when kept in check. Fat lose is the goal, but maintaining as much muscle mass as possible should also be high on the list.
Eddie, after a workout you are in a catabolic state. Getting those carbs in quickly will return you to an anabolic state. Just make sure you are counting those calories and you are maintaining your deficit. They aren't free, you need to earn them!
Hey Mohammad, it's definitely fine to take a pre-workout before your workout and a recovery drink after your workout.
However, you should only do them once a day, so if you choose to do 2 workouts a day, you'll have to decide which is your "main" workout that you want to use the PWO and recovery drink for, and which one you are doing as an extra workout.
Thank you very much for the reply.... Another question regarding this. Since Insanities upperbody is being done in the beginning will taking the R&R not going to be as beneficial to the upperbody muscle groups because by the time I finish ab ripper X, an hour might have passed by??
