    If your working lasts 1.5 hrs or more it may be a good idea to supplement with one. Otherwise, they are not necessary by any definition of the word.

    I lift 4 times per week, and my sessions routinely last 1.5-2 hours. I've never used an intra-workout drink other than water. I'm gonna try the 1/2 water, 1/2 Gatorade idea, and see how I feel.

    I think the individual, their types of workouts, and the other supplements used answers that question better than an outright yes or no. As a guy who plays hours of basketball as my cardio, I will lose what lean muscle I do have if I don't stay hydrated and keep my blood amino content going.

    I'm not gonna go too far on a tangent about my disdain for GATORADE but I'll say this... Too much sodium for a relatively nonexistent amount of potassium per serving and they're part of the reason why the price of whey went up. The sugar content of gatorade is something I gave up on because some people need it intra and post activity. I personally have a genetic pre disposition to diabetes in my family. Therefore my carb types are hawked at all times. I'll stick to HBCD and low GI carb supplementation when necessary.

    That's the long answer... Now the Short answer... Take them if your pre doesn't provide ample aminos and means of hydration; or your activity is that extensive.

    I think BCAAs mixed with a carb source might be a more useful concoction.

    nothing is really necessary but I have found that sipping eaa or bcaa like purple wraath or xtend makes for a more vigourious powerful workouts and improoves regeneration.

    it is expensive but what is not in supplement world

    Intra's seem to be more marketing hype than anything, but I can def see where they may be beneficial.

    That said, are intraworkout drinks really necessary or is it more of a marketing thing? I have a preworkout drink and my postworkout shake and water seems to be working fine in the middle there. I'm curious to hear if anybody has noticed benefits to working an intraworkout into their routine.
    Thanks!
    Lol gatorade has been doing this for years now. I think it is beneficial when you are truly busting your ass. When I did marathon training I needed something more than water in the gym so I didn't pass out so I think it all depends on what your doing.

    Exactly. I didn't want the HFCS, so I mixed my modern bcaas with some maltodextrin I picked up today. Perfect...

    Big fan of Xtend and Endurance. Necessary? Of course not! Beneficial? Yes! At least I hope so!
