    Maltodextrin, waxy maze, ect ect yes they exsist but oats ground into powder is a better option.

  4. I think you are looking for something like Karbolyn by All American EFX or Karbolic by Pro Supps?

  5. im pretty controversial on my nutritional information, but this to me seems like you are majoring in the minors. i wouldnt worry about missing some food for like an hour or so.

    i have been doing intermittent fasting since january. i have lost 20 lbs and all my lifts are going up. i dont count calories, i dont measure, i eat what i want as long as its within a 6 hour window each day. so yes, i can go upwards of 18 hours without food and that means at times i havent eaten for 12+ hours before a workout and may not even eat till the next day after a workout. it was rough the first month now its just plain easy.

    in other words, the body is a very resilient machine. dont sweat the little things till you know for a fact you have the major things in place or are one of the worlds elite that require even the tiniest changes to see any type of gains anymore.

    but if you insist on drinking a shake, they make meal replacement shakes that have carbs and protein. just shop around whatever local store you have, or even better, eat some food.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

    Well usually after a lift I feel depleted and just wanted an extra bit of carbs before going into cardio. Ground up oats sounds low a good plan though, but actually now that I think about it during my long lifting sessions I never really used any carbs/protein and still saw an increase in mass . not the next day over a period of time.

    But it confuses me because if you lift to long and lactic acid builds up in your muscles won't your body start breaking them down for energy? That was my reasoning for carbs intra/pre cardio. But then you have IF which totally disproves this. I'm interested and confused lol

    Lactic acid is metabolized very quickly and is not going to be the culprit.

    So what would be the culprit? If you trained for an extended period of time without any carbs/food.

    Lack of glycogen/substrate.

    a lack of glycogen = lack of carbohydrates, so ingesting carbs would solve this issue correct? If you were to train for an extended period of time.

  14. Fruit, waxy maize, EVOGen's GLycoject, Glycergrow, etc..

    edit: Not a carb beverage my fault

    Glycerol's supposed to provide a super hydrating effect but I've read a couple studies indicating otherwise.. Vitargo is always a nice option.. Kinda pricey though

    Potentially, but there's many factors in this equation. It could be anything from lack of work capacity to being hypocaloric.

    It's okay. Mainly when it comes down to "refiling " glycogen it only applys to endurance athletes,people who spend way to long in the gym,or steroid users* gotta love almost instant nutrition uptake*

    For the average gym goer you can rest assured that within 18 to 24 hrs your glycogen stores are full even low Carb.

    well i started running 2 a days and was just making sure thanks man.

  31. 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.

  33. 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.

    I've grown to really enjoy the benefits of using Karbolyn for my training and especially during my geared sessions that are taking freaking forever right now.

  38. 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.

  39. 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
