    Best Pre-workout and post-workout shakes? For clean bulk

    So, I work every morning at 8am and am pretty much too tired to hit the gym later in the day after I get off work. With this being said, I wake up at 530am to hit the gym. I don't like eating a full meal before my workout because it's hard for me to work out on a full stomach. So, I usually just eat a banana and drink a shake before my workout. I'm currently working on a clean bulk. I take GNC's "amplified wheybolic extreme 60" before my workout. After my workout I take 3 scoops of Cytogainer and usually consume 6 eggs that are mixed with shredded turkey breast. Throughout the day I will drink another Cytogainer shake and another shake of GNC's amplified wheybolic protein.

    The rest of my diet consists of rice, chicken, salad and broccoli.

    My question is, for a clean bulk, is this the best pre and post workout shakes for me to take?

    I'm somewhat new to lifting. Thanks in advance.

    Forgot to mention, the two scoops of Amplified Wheybolic protein that I take PRIOR to my workouts contatin:

    -186.6 calories
    -40g Protein
    -4.6 Carbs

    The 3 scoops of Cytogainer that I take AFTER my workout contains:

    -435 calories
    -40.5g Protein
    -59.25g Carbs

    You'd be much better off eating whole foods rather than drinking shakes.

    The diet's contribution to bulking is determined by caloric surplus and micro/macronutrient sufficiency. Whole foods are preferable, whenever possible, in terms of long-term health. And meal timing and frequency are largely irrelevant; it's daily nutrition that counts.

    Examples? What would be a good pre-workout meal? Preferably one that is not filling whatsoever. Something light.

    Firstly, you don't need to consume anything just prior to your workout, but if you want to consume at that time it should be a meal/snack that you enjoy and that fits into your daily micro/macronutrient target.

    For example, I'll often have chocolate milk (made from whole milk) about an hour before my workout. It fits into my daily nutrition very well and I enjoy the taste.

    ^what those guys said.

    I enjoy oats or ezekial bread before workouts. They tend to keep me fuller feeling for longer. Which I hate feeling hungry when I workout. Obviously some form of protein helps. I eat a can of tuna or eggs, but beware of weird burps while you workout.


    for post...I eat about the same. Some people are into fast absorbing carbs but the science is still out on that. I will sometimes eat a candybar with some protein or something.

    Don't overthink this. Meet your macros and eat what you are most comfortable with.

    Makes no difference. A bulk is "clean" when you monitor your macros/calories to stay in a small caloric surplus. Has nothing to do with what you eat and everything to do with how much you eat. Just hit your macros with food and don't worry about shakes.

    Last time I checked, chocolate milk isn't the greatest example of whole foods
