Vitargo is the way to go, pricey but you get what you pay for. I have used it as a staple for the past year and a half and love it. For cutting just add 20g(half a scoop) to your post workout shake, as for bulking I load 80g+ together with protein and all other bulk powders. That makes roughly 500 calories in one shake, I can eat a large amount but it helps to down that much in liquid form believe me.
Vitargo is pure carbs, no sugar. Nothing comes close.

Why do you want to burn carbs doing cardio.
I'd think you want to focus on fat loss.
Insulin in the blood is going to cause lypolosis to stop.
And the intensity at which you do your cardio is going to determine what energy source you primarily rely on.
Your goal should be to teach your body to be a better fat burner, not a better sugar burner.

Lactate builds up as intensity increases, i.e. working at a higher percentage of your lactate threshold but is quickly metabolized when work periods become less intense (i.e. in periods of oxygen availability). High levels are muscle lactate will accumulate at high levels of intensity, however your typical fatigue felt during weight training (dependant on on intensity) is not resultant from this, but rather from the accumulation of H+ ions inhibiting muscle contraction.
As Rodja stated, fatigue can stem from multiple pathways, whether that be lack of glycogen, lack of adaptation to ketogenic diet etc.

I've used them all. Vitargo ($2 / 70g carbs) , waxy, malto, karbolic , dextrose.
And to be honest I don't notice much difference between them in terms of glycogen replenishment during / after a 1.5 hour lift

LOL. I hear a lot of supplement talk but not much on my idea. Grind up oats in a blender. Walmart has them for 3 bucks for a big can. That's maybe 50 cents for 60 or 70 g carbs

I remember the first time I heard of people putting oats in their shakes and didn't realize they meant oat powder or grinding them up and I just poured oats in my cup and went haha
Why not zoidberg?
