I agree with my man matt here. Right after your workout, you need simple, quick carbs for fast glycogen replenishment and which also aids in pushing the nutrients to your muscles. You also want it low in fat and fiber because you want to digest it fast. This is a time when as said previously, gummy bears, white bread, I've even seen guys eat some Krispy Kreme donuts post-workout for the sugar. In my opinion, I'd go with some a little healthier than donuts and choose a banana.
My post-workout choice is AfterShock, which has the hydrowhey and fast digesting carbs and everything else you need. Usually about an hour after my AfterShock, I eat a meal which is usually a meat and vegetable like salmon with asparagus, grilled chicken with spinach salad, etc.
Your Pre-workout meal depends whether or not you take a pre-workout supp like Jack3d or White Flood. A simple whey shake in water is always a good choice, as is a piece of fruit or berries. If you don't take a pre-workout, you can eat something small about 30 minutes before you lift. If you do take a pre-workout, you wanna eat something about an hour before you take your pre-workout supp, again something small and quick digesting.
F***arounditis most commonly manifests itself as an intense preoccupation with crunches, curls, cable movements, belts, gloves, balance boards, Swiss Balls and Tyler Durden. Fear of squats and deadlifts is another distinguishing trait. Physical exertion is either completely lacking or misapplied.
