I’m wanting to refine my plan on using the Indigo product…

A little background- I did a natural bodybuilding show last fall and last spring and had decent results, placing 1st and 2nd in my weight (bantam) in the two shows, and 2nd twice in my age group. Like most guys, I’m wanting to get bigger, so I’m eating a lot more now. I’ve gotten a lot stronger since spring and added 35 lbs, but let’s just say not all my weight increase is muscle, hence the idea of supplementing with Indigo.

It seems like there are 2 possible times I could work it in. I work out in the morning, so I could take it at 4:45 along with my pre-workout meal. Then it’s off to the gym, back home, eat a breakfast of eggs and oatmeal. Then off to work, I typically have a salad with 8oz of chicken and some brown rice for lunch. I’m back home to make dinner around 6:30 and I’m hungry again. So I could take it before dinner, or first thing in the morning- which is better? Of what about splitting it, a little in the morning and a little before dinner?

One of the best uses for <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/indigo-3g"target=“new”>Indigo-3G is for “gaining” phases to encourage greater muscle growth without the fat loss. So good choice there!

  1. Do not split it. Won’t work as well that way.

  2. For best results, use before proper workout nutrition, such as <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/plazma"target=“new”>Plazma, per label directions. If you’re not using good workout nutrition, consider it, or take your Indigo-3G before dinner.

The label directions say to take 30 mins before workout supplementation, but I begin workout supplementation pretty much right when I get up, since I’m working out early. So should I just take it then or wait until dinner? I guess I’m asking how important the “30 minutes prior” statement is.

It’s pretty important. Can you get up earlier? What is your pre-workout supplementation?

Preworkout meal includes 100g banana, Beverly UMP protein shake, creatine plus 3g additional beta alanine, mass amino & ultra40, then bcaa/glutamine drink during the session, and breakfast w 80g oatmeal + 20g protein shake powder stirred in, cinnamon bagel and 6 eggs, 3 whole, 3 white, and more mass amino & ultra40s. About 1200 cal by this point of the day.

You could replace all that pre-workout stuff and get much better results with a simple pre-load serving of Plazma then a serving intra-workout. (Probably save you some dough too.)
