I've read quite a bit on information on this topic, but it's hard to me to lay it all out intelligently...as it's not something I obsess much about.

I do know that most intra and post-workout nutrition is set up to address immediate needs, as well as to facilitate recovery. Basically it's structured to maximize recovery and rebound.

Most bodybuilders I know obsess about every meal and turn it into a science, so to your point, I think many already do think about meals the day before. They are constantly trying to maximize performance and gains.

Most try to cover their bases by keeping a steady stream of slow-digesting proteins throughout the day, and taking in fast digesting protein at key times, such as post-workout. Many intra-workout supps exist as well to address immediately carb, protein/amino needs.

I drink whey during a workout instead of a BCAA supplement like Xtend to keep a steady, but small stream of protein in my system during a workout. I also drink a liquid pre-workout with a banana (while not cutting).

Sorry for this hodge podge post. I need to organize my thoughts on this issue a bit better.

Where's Brad Borland when you need him....
