    Buy carb Powder 4 SD cycle?


    Hello, real quick just wanna say hello im new on here, migrated from another bb forum i didnt like to much. I hope to be here for a long while as i love bb, and i hope to make some new friends on here and meet some cool people, thanks!

    So this is my 3rd cycle (first was epi, second SD, and im almost 30yo.) im going to start in a couple weeks, its going to be SD. So i know SD loves carbs, i get plenty but im wondering if it would be worth the cash (its pretty cheap) to buy a carb powder supp, and which kind would be best? any1 have any experience with this? thanks!

    Uh, eat bread or oats or sugar or any other carb source? Food consumption = gain, not simply carb consumption.

    I think it's cheaper to just buy carb filled foods. I mean I have a pack of whole wheat bagels right now and it's like 50g of carbs in one bagel. Great for the carb hunger. I also commonly eat oats. I usually make them with milk, an egg, couple tbsp brown sugar, and a couple drops of vanilla extract, really good.

    Why wouldn't you take the chance to pig out on carbs? Who are these people that don't like food?

    From a quick google search you could eat white rice, watermelon, pineapple, or pretzels for some fast digesting carbs.

    The belief that we need carbs (and protein) during a minimal window post workout has been debunked years ago.

    True, protein synthesis and carb consumption within 1 hour pwo actually haults the production of the natural HGH and other good hormones you create while doing and shortly after your workout. I believe in carb powders personally, sometimes I just don't have time to smash food down my throat.

    use waximaize and put it in ur shakes when u cant get a hard food meal. personally hard food beats shakes anyday but i know sometimes its more convenient. sometimes i put oats right in my shakes u kinda drink and chew at the sametime but its an easy 20+g carbs when u need it i got the idea from a vid with evan centopani

    I strongly recommend that you do your research and not take ANYONE's opinion.



    If you want sugar on the cheap than consider Dextrose (2 lb) or Maltodextrin (Carbo Gain) (8 lb) but maltodextrin and dextrose can be found very cheaply at a beer brewing supplies place.

    If you want to avoid fat storage, keep your carbs low to moderate, even on sd.

    So peer reviewed published clinical research backed by multiple studies should be ignored.

    Ok.

    You made the statement and did not post reference. I myself wouldn't believe you or anyone else without reference. Notice I didn't say it was false nor did I say you were wrong. Ok.

    I felt that a subject like that would be akin to me posting citations for creatine. Not a chip on the shoulder, thought it was pretty common knowledge at this point. Would you like me to post citations? I'd be happy to.

    True be told I wasn't even referring to you or your post or anyone in particular when I made my statement. I see far too many people take a members word for something and do no research whatsoever for themselves to confirm what they hear from someone.

    I've grown so tired of people and their sensitivity. I don't care if you post your opinion. Break the rules get an infraction or banned. Otherwise whatever floats your boat.

    My opinion is Carb powder is trash unless your 200+ lbs . Hard to get carbs for me at that point haha. Orange juice, gaterade,oats,waffles with syurp,bread, the list goes on and on for Carb sources that are better than powder.

    well, not actually, im suprised at this, as im on the other side of the fence.

    most recent study on this, august 2012, published in the journal of strength and conditioning, (sports nutrition)

    i can copy the enire article for you, but that'll cost you something. lol.

    the pratical aplication i'll write it for you:

    " Ahearing to the principles of nutrient timing while engaging in a resistance training program will maximize the adaptive response to the stimulus provided by the exercise program.

    Specifically, timed ingestion of protein/essential amino acids & carbohydrate will replenish skeletal muscle glycogen, reduce muscle soreness, and rates of protein degradation, induce a positive net protein balance, and amplify strength and lean muscle mass gains beyond what would be realized from a resistance training program alone.

    Currently, there is not a consensus on the amounts of protein/eaa/carbs that is needed to maximize these gains.

    Based on the available literature, 1g/kg/h of carbohydrate (taken immediately after and then again 1hr later) will effectively restore depleted skeletal muscle glycogen and decrease degradation.

    In regards to protein, around 20-25g of high quality fast-digesting protein taken immediately after resistance exercise appears to maximize proetin synthesis, reduce muescle soreness, and increase skeletal muscle hypertrophy.

    On a scale that is rlative to body weight, .25g of high-quality fast digesting protein per kilogram of bodyweight would likely supply adequate amounds of the essential amino acids needed to realize the aforementioned benefits.

    The research supporting these recommendations has accumulated over the past 10-15 years, and there is a great deal of apreciation that is because of those researchers who have contributed to the advancement of the science of nutrient timing.

    Looking forward, research is needed to investigate the effects of nutrient timing using resistance-trained individuals who are participating in a longer term (several months) resistance training program."

    whew, my neck is tired from looking at all that an typing it.

    anyhow, i believe the research is positive concerning post workout nutrition, and nutrient timing.

    awesome thanks for the tip! i plan only doing 1 scoop a day. Should be enough i have no problem eating big on cycle. I will probably save most the 12lb mass gainer for pct. When it is important to keep cals over maintenance to keep gains.
