David replied to Jake's discussion I'm skinny and tired of it.

Mike S. replied to Jake's discussion I'm skinny and tired of it.
"That seems like a lot of protein prior to the workout. By just those two you have listed, it would put him close to his daily requirements. I'd suggest a little less protein along with a carbohydrate prior to workout. Spread your protein needs…"
