PWO Meal & MAG-10


#1

Because of my job, I have to workout late some evenings (finished at 10:30 PM last night) so I don’t have time for more than one “meal” between my workout and bed. What would be my best option?

  1. MAG-10 only, 45 minutes - hour after working out
  2. MAG-10 30 minutes after workout and food (or Metabolic Drive Low Carb) 30 minutes after that (how long should one wait after a Pulse?)
  3. MAG-10 and food at the same time 45 minutes - hour after work out

Thanks,
BP

We’d hate for you to skip the evening meal. Many people have a <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/mag-10"target=“new”>Mag-10 with food (John Meadows does this with snacks.) While it may not be the same as a true protein pulsing effect, it’s certainly not wasted. It would actually be difficult to STOP Mag-10 from getting in you quickly given the type of protein and carbs used in the formula.

Another consideration: If you’re using <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/plazma"target=“new”>Plazma or Surge during training, you probably finish it up sometimes around 3/4ths of the way through your workout. So having a Mag-10 ten minutes or so after training would be fine.

Finally, some people keep a Mag-10 pulse on their bedside table and drink it when they naturally wake to use the bathroom in the middle of the night.

In short, it would be really hard to “mess up” a pulse of Mag-10.

How long should I wait to eat after a MAG-10 pulse? Both time crunched and ideal, please.

There is no standard timeframe set, but for protein pulses we often recommend “between meals.” Many wait roughly an hour.

However, it’s also fine to have a MAg-10 just a few minutes before eating as it absorbs very quickly. The di- and tripeptide complex is transported (requiring no further breakdown) directly into the bloodstream.
