I drink Compete and grape juice. I typically eat 2 - 2.5 hours pre-workout.

I'm not saying he's just a salesman. Dude clearly knows his stuff.. I just go there for the articles and knowledgeable (for the most part) forum discussion

Meadows also advocated a pre-workout meal with Cream of rice, almond butter and whey and then tons of intra-workout carbs. Everyone skins the cat a different way.

It all boils down to what works out best for you. Trial and error. Myself I normally eat about an hour and a half pre workout then about thirty to forty minutes post workout with bcaa+saa intra/post training. This has been the best setup for MYSELF and I've experimented a lot. Whole foods during both meals and on occasion I throw in 25g protein shake post workout meal as well. I've used carbs intra workout and didn't notice anything but again I am getting some in with my pre workout meal.
In a fasted state i could see how intra carbs would be beneficial during training but if you eat a couple hours before your session I don't think it's necessary.
Trial and error my friend. Nobody can give you the right answer.

Nothing is more confusing than bodybuilding. Why can't it just be eat, lift, sleep. All the scientific stuff bothers me sometimes. Seems to me the whole bodybuilding industry is a ****ing lie

That relates to diet
Meal Frequency (Some prefer less meals some like more)
Different peak Weeks
Forms of cardio they find more effective for THEM and retaining mass when dieting down
Training volume from person to person.
What rep ranges help each muscle part grow best
Nothing is ever the same, everyone works different in multiple fashions.

What I use is Compete with some G2 when I want some extra carbs during my workout. Usually only happens when I am training with one or two people and I know that I will be at the gym for a couple hours, but that is just me and what I do. I know some people dont find any value in having carbs during training, while others love it. All I can say is try it for a little bit, see what happens. Maybe you will like it, maybe you wont.

I really like taking a intraworkout but only on days I don't take a pre. I feel nauseous sometimes. However with iForce's Compete, I have not noticed that and I have had really good recovery!

I have been using 1 serving AminoIV pre- and and 1 serv. intra with 25g Glycofuse pre- and 25g intra for a couple of months. When I don't take 25g Glycofuse pre-workout I seem to have more energy so I am from noe just using 25g intra.
When training and consuming carbs there is a minimal insulin secretion?

I'm taking 180 grams of plain old maltodextrin during my training sessions. Works great.

I also feel it is dependent on the intensity of your workout and training. I know we all think we are ultra intense, but keep in mind carbohydrate drinks like Gatorade were designed for people and tested on people under extreme athletic activity...like football training camps

I may have to try intraWO carbs again, I did them for a while but felt I stay a bit leaner without them.
