Post wokout sugar sources
Guys, I've been drinking my own extra sugary batch of kool aid post workout along with my protein shake. I'd say im getting 60 grams of sugar and 50 grams protein. Think that's good post workout nutrition even if I'm trying to gain muscle and lean out all at once? Also, what do you eat/drink for sugar after your workouts?

Who says you need sugar? Just eat what you enjoy. If you want sugar, go for something you enjoy.
Personally, I just have a scoop of iso-ology with a little unsweetened cocoa powder in the locker room and eat a whole meal 45-60 minutes after that.

I used to use bulk dextrose 80 or so grams post workout with my whey but now just use whey and notice no real difference.

I usally eat 3serv(25g cho each)for my post shake,i take a calcium citrate supp to digest fruit more to glucose then frutose,but any cho will actually work(wheat,rice,potatoes)i like the fruit they got vitamins(taste good)and are easy to take if i go to gym.

Not necessarily suger but yur body needs sugar to restore glycogen stores because they are depleted after a tough workout. So carbs which break down into sugars work. I pack a peanut butter and honey sandwich for post workout with a scoop of wheyOriginally Posted by AntM1564

While I am not against post workout sugar, I don't think most peoples glycogen stores will depleted after a typical workout, I think its possible and they are surely reduced, but think it has been overplayed in the supplement and bb communities.Originally Posted by machorox123

I say just try different things and go by feeling/leanness/ect i do complex training(main lift/2-4complexes)which takes me over 2hrs at times with a constint high heart rate (no/little rest between exercises)so fruit is a better option "for me"most lifting sessions only burn around 400cals while mine are from 800-1100 what works for someone doesnt always work for another.
Dextrose/maltidextin so on doesnt work for me and if it doesnt have nutritional value(vits)i dont want it.

b) your glycogen stores will refill regardless of when you eat carbs, and even if you don't eat carbs they will to some extent from glucuneogenesis
The only real exception is if you are something like a college athlete, particularly in something high endurance like rowing, and have an early in the day either workout or practice session, then laster in the same day have whichever you didn't have in the morning. Then taking in a gob of sugar postworkout helps make sure you have good glycogen reserves for the activity later the same day.

Very good. I am drinking it as I type because I just finished my Arm workout. 2 scoops chocolate whey w/ 20-25oz Gatorade (red).. Tastes like chocolate strawberry. But I use any flavor Gatorade now cuz it doesn't make a difference to me. Give it a try I guarantee you will like it. Just don't mix it w/ some cookie and cream whey that's gross. try these other flavors too...Originally Posted by MuscleGauge1
Vanilla whey and orange Gatorade = orange cream
Strawberry whey and red Gatorade = just really good lol

I lift 5 days a week and gatorade is not expensive if you know how to shop. I buy in bulk I have cases of them. Gatorade so uses dextrose sugarOriginally Posted by Iron_Will

Dont know if anyone else has ever had one but i went to golds gym today for my first deload w/o and didn't want to pack my homemade shake.
So i got a smoothie from them(all that razz it was called)it had the same macros (5g less protein)but got super fatigued after about 2hrs.
Atleast it tasted really good i guess,no more of those tasty/fatigue indosing things!
