i would say that your preworkout should be closer to two hours beforehand...

But the instruction was to take the preworkout supplement around 30mins to 1 hour before workout.

Postworkout

1/2 Cup of Oatmeal
Protein Shake in water(1 scoop High Power Whey, 1 Scoop Myofusion)

You lack carbs...and food in general pre-workout, and too much protein post-workout. Dump that superpump and save your money
And please read the sticky about pre/post workout nutrition at the top of the page

I eat a whole grain/whole wheat bagle with cream cheese spread about 1-1.5 hours before I workout. Gives me all the energy I need and the right mix of complex carbs/fat/protein.

Having food of SOME kind in your stomach pre-workout is more important than worrying exactly what you're eating. The reason being is you need energy for your workout, because energy is where intensity comes from, and it's the intensity that counts most. Empty stomach = low intensity = poor workout.

I don't bother with anything during my workout because my workout doesn't last long enough and my body is still digesting what I ate prior to working out. In fact, I would argue that eating during your workout is a complete and utter waste of time.

As soon as I'm done with my workout, I suck down 50 grams of whey isolate, then eat about 300-400 calories worth of a mix of carbs/protein/fats an hour later (focusing more on carbs than protein since I already had the whey and the best time to eat carbs is after your workout as it minimizes their ability to turn to fat plus it helps your muscles recover).

My workout protocol for the average 200lb male off season client:

20 min pre workout: 20gm maltodextrin, 20 gm whey, beta alanine, bcaa, creatine
During workout : 20 gm waxymaize, bcaa OR gatorade, bcaa
Post Workout : 40gm waxymaize, 20gm whey, bcaa, beta alanine
30 min later : 1 c oats, 20 gm whey
60-90 min later: Next meal

Just another idea of doing things. But there are different concepts I use with different people.
