Post Newbie- Protein Intake schedule?

Hi,

I just started using protein supplements(GytoGainer Rock 56g/Shake).
On the label they suggest that you take three shakes a day.

- One in the morning
- One a couple hours before your workout
- One within 30-45 minutes after.

That seems very reasonable to me.

My training program splits upper and lower in two days and rest day in after that.

Does my body need the three shakes a day during my resting day?

Will my muscels still be recovering the day after enough to need all the extra protein in circulation?

They say that 80% of the protein the muscels need they get it with 2 hours after the work out.

Yes they will still recover. On non-workout days drink one or two shakes also consider splitting up your upper body into more days and add cardio.

What is the advice on protein bars, like "Powerbar"?

I am at work and I can not really get the liberty to screw arround with powder in a high tech room.

Do you see protein bars a good way to substitute the powder? They will take a little longer to digest, but the thing is that when you mix products together you might mix the wrong chemicals in your body.

Do you believe in mixing products? Shakes and Protein Bars of different makers?

- Protein bars are okay once in a while if you absolutely cannot find another source of food. Most protein bars really don't have that much protein in them and can be deceiving. Alot of them are loaded with hidden sugars and partially hydrogenated oils which means bad fat, so be careful and read the labels.

Mixing different brands of powders and bars doesn't make any difference, just be careful about whats actually in the bars and you should be fine. Keep in mind however the best source of protein is whole foods loaded with lean protein like chicken breasts and so forth. Maybe you could just bring prepared snacks to work? Or get some beef jerky or something.

Depends im almost sure im off but someone can give you this number later. I think 33 grams per serving and say you way 200lbs and only 180 is lean muscle body weight you need 5 and a half servings of chicken then to equal one gram many people go up to 2 grams so figure 11 servings for your day. Protien shakes are used so you can get that extra 50+ grams into your diet. Im using chicken as an example you can switch it up with tuna and stuff just need to change the grams per serving.

yea i agree with sleazy about that protien bar thing. most of the time they are horrible for you and one time i bought one went up to the register and it was $4 for a protien bar lol for protien try to hit your body weight in protien, or even more. dont always rely on the shakes though every day try to mix it up with meats.

Protein bars are great if you are on the go and you need something in a pinch but if you can eat the real food.

when I go mountain biking and I'm gonna be gone a few hours, I'll throw a protein bar in the bag. I like MetRx's MRP bar. Not too bad tasting.

And, depending on how much you weigh, it may not be feasible to get ALL your protein from food. I mean, you can only eat so much chiken or beef or tuna every day. Having some shakes is a good way to break thinks up.

very true, so I would suggest taking in that post workout shake as soon as your done with your workout, then plan a good meal, protiens, carbs, fats, fiber for your post workout meal, and eat it an hour to an hour and a half after your workout.

Becareful reading labels when it comes to protien bars.
