Default when to take dextrose & maltodextrin?

I know that you must take dextrose & maltodextrin immediately after training along with your protien shake but, for example, with me I workout four days a week and so at the moment I only take dextrose & maltodextrin on those four days but I take whey protein for all seven days. What I am asking is should I take dextrose & maltodextrin with my protein shake for all seven days or only on the days in which I work out?

Only on days you work out.

Keep in mind you don't need dextro/malto after doing cardio... only after lifting...

what else can I put in my protein shake on the three days of the week that I don't lift? I'm quite skinny and want to put on mass and so I know I need to eat more but I already eat about as much as I can, I've tried putting oats in there but it is too thick for me and so it makes me gag and I can't drink it, is there anything else I can use to add more calories etc other than oats? thanks in advance.

Try grinding up your oats in a coffee grinder, it makes it much more bearable to drink. Some people like to add natty PB for some omega-6, or sometimes a bananna if they're bulking.

Definitely add oatmeal and peanut butter for a home-made weight gainer shake for non-post workout shakes. Also, you could try the Champion Nutrition weight gainer (sold here), which is excellent for bulking. Read more about it in the store section! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I agree with the above - it seemed that as soon as I added PB and oats to my regular daily protein shake, I gained 5lbs. Awesome for bulking
