    What's you bf%? I'v never heard anyone taking that much pwo.

  5. 9% how much do you guy take

  6. i figure 1/2 cup is about 75 carbs

  7. 9%? Pretty good.
    1 cup - 8oz, 1/2 cup 4oz ~ 100grams sugar.

    I normally take 10g - 30g of malto/sugar.

  8. i konw alot of people who take 75 or more grams of carbs pwo

  9. 1/2 cup is 75 grams, yes. Dextrose does work great for many people, but as w/anything you have to experiment w/it. Bobo and I debated the use of dextrose like mad, and determined it's an individual thing. All my clients use it, and well, look at them!

  10. 125 grams of protein, 50 grams Dex, 10 grams Micro Creatine with 20 oz grape juice for my post shake. Also 2 bananas and 2 potatoes, 10 units Slin...

  11. Wow that's a ****load of carbs, In-Human.

  12. When bulking I use 4 TBSP with my shake. That equals aprox 30g.

    even for a complete monster, i would say thats an excess of both protein and carbs bro. Im a leaner fella, taking in 50g carbs and 30-35g protein, w/ a follow up whole meal an hour after. (equal amount of carbs/protein approx)

  14. damn human,how big are you?

    IMO that's too much of everything especially with the added juice, bananas and taters. You're going to be pissing most of that protein and creatine away.

    And I am one of them.........I started in Jan. this year at 196lbs at 15.3% BF and for PWO I use around 85g of dextrose with my whey protein, and 11 weeks later I am at 185lbs and 9.5% BF, now tell me that taking in 85g of dextrose PWO doesn't work and makes you fat???

    also fructose pw isnt the ideal carb source. how long have you been using this mix and how has your results been?

  19. Well I take in 50gs of protein 80gs of dextrose and 5 gs of creatine post workout weather I'm bulking or cutting. Also when I'm using slin I actualy do it all over again 1 hour later. By the way I beleive your bodyweight probably plays a big role and this works great for me at 250lbs.

  20. It can "work" either way you do it (high GI carb or low), but all I have to say after over a year or two of reading low GI threads (usually with Bobo somewhere in there) is that I've done both ways and see absolutely no point in consuming that many carbs (especially high GI) post workout.

    When I first started lifting around age 15, I didn't use carbs PW, just protein. Years later I started adding carbs PW, and about 2 years ago I dropped them. My results: no real benefit from PW carbs for me, and pointless amounts of sugars being ingested.

    Either way, its working, and it works for me, I am human and I am getting alot stronger eating alot of pw carbs.

    Dude you oughta see some of this guys lifts, he is working with DC and his motto is to get big you gotta eat big....all the time

  22. Where can I get really really cheap malto and dextrose?

    I used to take Biotest Surge...tastes amazing (insanely sweet), but its ungodly pricy. I mean $50 retail for 2LBs? You can get it for under $30, but thats still only 10 servings in that container. Now, I'm taking After Max by ON, at $22 or so dollars for 20 servings.

  23. 1fast400 sells dextrose for 2 bucks per 2lb bag

  24. Now Foods product line carries corn sugar (dextrose). Some natural health food store will carry them. Many sites (1fast, vitaglo for example) carries the dextrose from Now Foods. If you're looking for a big bulk of malt or dextrose, supplementdirect has them. Shipping will get you though.

  25. the dextrose i use is 21 grams/tbs (84 kcals) 1/2 cup=168 grams (672 kcals)

    Yes, eventually it will. Science doens't lie but I guess you know more than they do. And if you actually took the time to read the arguement, BOTH work. Low GI has less of a chance of adipose storage and that is a fact. Its basic phyioslogy you can read in any 101 book. Look it up.

    But if you want to keep wasting your money on bags of sugar, then go for it.

    Well I wouldn't say that. The health benefits of whole grains over high glycemic sugars are numerous. Both work but once has a greater chance of adipose storage and that can't be argued. Thats just basic physiology. If you can get away with it fine but most likley you won't be able to as natural insulin resistance sets in with age.

    Training the majority of men under 25-30 is fairly easy as they can get away with much more.

  28. Isn't the taste of sugar in your PWO drink a lot easier to stomach though than grinded up oats?

  29. Amazingly I've many "older" gentlemen (few ladies too, a very good powerlifter as well) who are 40+ doing this, will no ill affects. Does it mean I'm right and you are wrong, or vice versa? No, not really, but it is quite interesting. (G4E is over the 25-30 age bracket, I won't mention his age, but he has no ill affects either)

    I suppose I'm just lucky, and have acquired biz from only people with sterling insulin responses. I've told Bobo I'd look into experimenting w/a client, and that has begun already to one who volunteered to try it, so we'll see how this other method plays out. Definitely not going to change my protocol in the programs I construct, not with the success rate as such. However, for purposes of saying it was given a chance and tried as a method, I'll test it.

  30. Swolecat I would make a case to why I'm right, but I'm on vacation about to hit the beach and eat all the junkfood I can find.

    I just wouldn't feel right telling people to eat correctly when I will have pizza in front of me!
