Just curious to what your thoughts were on drinking v-8 fusion juice after a workout. Good idea? Bad Idea? Let me hear them.
Each can depending on the flavor seems to have 38-42 grams of carbs. 35-38 which are sugars from the fruit.
Don't do it.
any reason why?
I think we should know what your goals are...whats your body type?
Simple sugars after my workout always kept me smooth...when I switched to complex carbs, and get my insulin in control, great things happened...but its all dependant on many factors..fill us in holmes!
Ive been doing hypertrophy stage and stregnth training stage. The hypertrophy is really to get my body a rest from the max efforts I put into my squat bench and deadlift. I also figure drinking the v-8 because of the carbs and the vitamins from the the fruits and vegies.
I've had good results having simple sugars post workout before or after my protein shake.
In high school i would keep candy in my car, but the chocolate would melt in the summer time
Post workout carbs are obsolete, don't do it.
When I bulk, I do a combination of simple and complex carbs post workout. 1.5 cup oats, 20-40g.
I use 20-30g dextros mixed with my whey protein PostWO. but use oatmeal+ a banana for my protein smoothys rest of time.
I like postal : )

I didn't realize this was news?
i generally try to use a carb that wont really spike insulin but will empty the gut quickly, i really like to use Waxy Maize for those purposes.
dextrose always makes me feel good after my 5x5 sessions
I'll stick with my carbs post-WO as the benefits of prolonged GH are speculative, at best, and that I like my glycogen levels to be full. I'm not saying to ingest a cast amount of high-GI carbs, but taking out this important macronutrient is absurd. Exercise, aerobic and anaerobic, both increase GLUT-4 receptor expression, which will, in turn, help repartition the glucose to the muscle.
I wish that study would have looked into cortisol, CK, and other inflammatory markers to see if there was any impaired recovery.
