Thank you all very much for your input.
I just have a few more questions.
I know Christian Thibaudeau pulses Mag-10 as soon as he wakes up to break the catabolic state caused by sleep, and I know he lifts early in the morning as well.
Could I benefit from taking his approach and pulse Mag-10 together with Indigo first thing as I wake up?
I know Chris Shugart mentioned that taking Indigo 30 minutes before workout nutrition was more for solid food or pre-workout nutrition such as Plazma, so maybe pulsing Mag-10 with Indigo wouldn’t affect it negatively. Any thoughts on this?
Just to clarify, the reason I’m thinking of pulsing Mag-10 first thing in the morning is because of the way Christian Thibaudeau uses it, the way TC Luoma recommends it in his article, “What You Don’t Know About Workout Supplements”, and the way John Meadows programs it into the protocol for the Reactive Pump program.
Also, the PWO shake I mentioned is what I consume post workout, and it’s also how I get a decent bulk of my calories in for the day.
In case it helps, this is what goes into it:
3/4 Cup Oats
2 Tablespoons Peanut Butter
3 Scoops Whey Protein
1 3/4 Cup Almond Milk
It falls somewhere along the lines of this:
Calories - 1,265
Fat - 31g
Carbs - 130g
Protein - 108g
If I’m still to consume this, when would be the optimal time to add it into as far as timing goes?
I know Christian Thibaudeau has said that he’s made his best gains pulsing Mag-10 15 minutes after a workout, and John Meadows programs it like this as well in his protocol and adds the post-workout meal 15 minutes later, so maybe take it 15 minutes after the Mag-10 in this case?
So the outline now looks like this:
Indigo 3G/Mag-10 - 4:00 a.m.
FiniBar - 4:30 a.m.
Plazma Pre-Workout - 4:45 a.m.
Plazma Peri-Workout - 5:00 a.m. - 6:30 a.m.
Mag 10 Pulse - 6:45 a.m.
PWO Shake - 7:00 a.m.
Breakfast - 8:00 a.m.
Would this work? Or should I look towards eliminating protein shakes from the post-workout window as FiniBars, Plazma, and Mag-10 take care of everything?
Thank you again for your help.
