    Help with supplements and 3rd shift

    Hello I need some adivce with supplements. I currently take Muscle pharm shred matrix, armour v and assault drink. My question is that I work 3rd shird and do my workout in the morning at 5 am after I work. I then proceed to go home to bed after my work out. What kind of supplements would anyone recommend to take right after a work out and right before bed where it won't keep me up but also help with recovery

    Thanks

    A protein shake? I don't understand your confusion. Why not search and see what other people that work out at night before bed take?
    Look under your chair. YOU GET A REP, AND YOU GET A REP, REPS FOR EVERYONE! If I get a rep, you get a rep, every time. Give me a link to make my life a little easier.

    If you don't give me a link and you didn't post in the thread you rep'd me in, I'm not gonna go searching for you. I'll get everyone on recharge.

    well taking a pre workout with caffeine will possibly make it difficult to sleep. Some people crash after a workout and sleep easily while others are wide awake so it depends on you specifically. Look into non stim pre workouts or just take a protein drink pre workout and a carb shake or carb meal post workout or look into casein protein post workout as its more time focused on slower absorption of protein which is good right before bed when you will be entering a fast.

    Working out, especially lifting weights will keep you up if you do it before bed. I would workout before work instead.

    Magnum Opus is the best non-stimmed preworkout I've tried. After workout, just get some protein and you should be good to go.

    Right AFTER a workout? If you're taking something after working out that would keep you up you're doing something wrong. Caffeine or other stims post workout is not good.

    Universal Torrent is good post workout. It has sugar in it but I've never had any problems going to sleep after taking it.

    I'd like to take four caps of SNS Magnesium Creatine Chelate right before bed. The nice dose of chelated magnesium provides great benefits with regards to sleep duration and depth, which in and of itself can help recovery. It also provides all the ergogenic benefits of creatine in a convenient capped for in extremely cost effective 120, 240, and 501 count tubs.

    Another supplement that's incredible for recovery is SNS Citrulline Malate. Besides its fantastic pump and endurance benefits, studies have shown that taking a dose of CM postworkout reduces delayed onset muscle soreness [DOMS] by 40% on average in the 48 hour period following a workout as compared to a placebo group. With 300g [50+ servings] for ~$22, it's a very effective and extremely economical ingredient to add to your postworkout regimen.

    Funny enough, ErgoBolic could actually be just the thing.

    Not only will it help with what I'm assuming are your fat loss goals (A guess since you're taking Shred Matrix) - but it can also drastically improve your quality of sleep

    First, I work night shift too (at work right now actually) so I understand the dilema.. I need my pre workout energy even when I'm not going to workout some nights, just to keep me up.. I would recommend taking it while at work.


    I haven't tried it yet, but ordered Hemavol tonight, which seems to be the best non stim going right now from what I read around here. It won't get your mind racing like the caffeine based stims do.

    But another one I like to take on my overnight, when I plan to workout or just take during my shift to keep me up, but need to get sleep after work, is ErgoGenix NMT. It's a stim, but not a caffeine stim and it gives you a good burst of energy, but doesn't have the lingering 3-4 hour caffeine buzz that keeps you from sleeping..

    It's also really cheap.

    Animal pump without the red capsule for pre-workout. Universal torrent post workout, and then immediately when you wake up I'd take 2 scoops whey. Just what I would do for quickest gains/ best workouts. No caffeine there so it should work.
