Some questions I’ve been trying to figure out and I’m sure have been asked before:
1- Is MAG-10 in Anaconda? Is Anaconda in MAG-10? Is finkel einhorn? And einhorn is finkel?
2- Did I finally see the day that carbs became more important than protein? I bet marathoners worldwide are jumping for joy. I mean really, now all I hear about is 100g carbs during peri-workout? Maybe I am so brainwashed by the old thinking of “small amount of food before, and then huge amounts of carbs and protein aferward”.
3- So in this new way of looking at nutrition, is the “insulin spike” that we used to fulfill post-workout by consuming roughly 50-75g carbs and 50g protein no longer necessary? Is insulin already spiked during the workout and thus, only protein need be consumed post training?
4- I mean, I read Anaconda’s label, and it’s almost identical to both MAG-10 and Surge Workout Fuel (minus the protein in this). Thoughts??
5- Look, in a perfect world, I would hook myself up to an IV of Plazma, take Indigo-3G, try to make myself sick off of MAG-10, and eat Finibars for dessert. But its not perfect. I am on a budget. In the past month I have bought a house and gotten married so funds are very tight.
I guess in the grand scheme of things, I am trying to get the most bang for my buck. I LOVE the convenience of the Metabolic Drive shakes during the day while at work. I like Indigo-3G (2 weeks in now) but would be willing to sacrifice it if there’s a better option for me.
Right now, I’m contemplating a Finibar and 1 scoop Anaconda pre workout and either MAG-10 or Surge Recovery post workout. That gives me roughly 70 grams of carbs. MAG-10 really intrigues me though. I mean, I look at the Anaconda protocol.
There’s not a great deal of protein in that shake, compared to the carbs. And then there’s not real post workout shake, just dinner as usual an hour later. Maybe my thinking needs to change, or my salary needs to dramatically increase.
6- On the notion of pre workout nutrition, I’ve seen many people say they load up on Finibars, Plazma, Anaconda, etc before every workout EXCEPT when they have squat or deadlift day due to not wanting to throw up. Isn’t this when you’d need it the most??
So what, you just load up post-workout instead? Then we are right back at square one, showing the “old school” method of workout nutrition.
