    Interesting.


    What do you all think of this?


    Take vitamins before workout? Hours later?


    It's always something, isn't it?

    I guess this should have been posted in the fitness section. I'm still trying to get familiar with the new forum.

    I think taking vitamins hours after workout will be beneficial. I take supplements with food so as to enhance absorption.

    Some people are taking the "live primally" thing a bit too far.

    Uh, what the hell? I closed my laptop right after posting that post at 8:04 in the condom thread. Now it's duped here? WTF.

    Forum ghosts! Meep!

    Anyway on topic: yeah we really don't want megadoses of vitamin antioxidants at all. It doesn't seem to matter when in the day we take them, it kills the adaptation to exercise. http://www.pnas.org/content/106/21/8665.long

    Vegetables, grassfed meats, eggs, and other sources of vitamin c and e will be enough. Since vitamin e is fat-soluble a smarter strategy would be to take something like 800IU of mixed tocopherols once a week on a light or no exercise day.
    Stabbing conventional wisdom in its face.
