Ido Portal (Conor Mcgregor's coach) is interesting. He is encouraging movement (all types of movement) and criticising the established methods to achieve just a muscular physique. He takes himself rather seriously and can seem like a self-righteous toss pot, but I think he's promoting something beneficial for everyone and believe that some of the dogmas in strength training and fitness should be criticised.

Is Ineff still around? Currently doing much more BW stuff than weights, weighted dips, weighted pull/chin-ups.. wondered if he was still publishing/producing routines?

Generally have a couple of eggs and half a tin of tuna an hour before I go to the gym at lunchtime. Want to replace this with a protein shake as I frequently forget to pick up ingredients and it's a bit of a faff in the morning.

What can people recommend? Never used supplements before.

myprotein, the protein works and bulk powders offer best value and taste from experience.

Personally I don't like anything in my stomach before training so I have malto and dextrose with bcaas and creatine with a few non-stims to give me a kick.

The protein works offer a carb powder called 'ultra carb' which is good.

Without sounding harsh, honestly how much effort is it to boil 2 eggs at night and stick it in a container with a tin of tuna?

what's the logic behind eating tuna and eggs pre workout? You're working out and your body is using most of it's energy to process slowest digesting, fatty, high cholesterol food.

If I ever eat fat or a large meal pre workout, I feel like my workout is a massive struggle.

There is no reason to eat just before the workout. Post-workout protein is the important part, and even that can wait until 60-90 min after the workout, but it doesn't hurt taking it straight away.

Skip the BCAA's (unless it's just for the small energy boost) and go with EAA/Whey and Creatine post-workout when the uptake is much better.

PWO carbs are the most important! Esting pre workout is a very individual thing…I'm not a fan of big meals pre but within a hour before is ok! A lil salter snack before gives a great pump I usually bang some snack a jacks Apple nutrigain bar/protein bar

Yeah, i should have added that, focused on the protein part of the discussion Eye-wink

Timing wise post-carbs is more sensitive than post-protein, after 2 hours the glucose uptake is diminished by 50%

I just have an apple pre-workout along with a isolate protein shake, a lot of caffeine and sugar to get you perked up a bit. Coffee with a brown sugar will do the same effect.

You'd be better to leave the eggs and tuna like others have said until after your workout so that you have the protein intake/gains (hate that word).

Those of you with abs, how often do you train them? I've started a proper rotation for a month or so now and only do them once a week but thinking i should increase this to two although i'm sore for at least two days after as i hit them pretty hard.

Abs are one of the muscle groups you can smash again pretty often from what I understand. I'm going to still do one massive abs session but then gonna supplement it with additional crunches etc through the week

He's brilliant, some of the moves are unreal.

Coconut oil is a good "go to" before training. It is a fat that acts like a carb but no insulin response. Immediate energy because it's an mct. Use with a protein source for a meal then workout an hour later for example.

Use carbs intra to help the recovery straight away and then a meal an hour after "the window of gains" is up to 48 hours post workout but never heard of a 50% drop in uptake after 2 hours. Be interested to read more on that piece. Generally I eat within 30 mins of workout finishing.


Ordering MyP Bulk P or TPW whey you can get 5kg for 55 quid and that's about the cheapest that you will get that's decent enough. You then step into things like 97% isolate or even pepto pro.

"Studies show a supercompensation of glycogen stores when carbohydrate is consumed immediately post-exercise, and delaying consumption by just 2 hours attenuates the rate of muscle glycogen re-synthesis by as much as 50%"
