Just trying to get the people thinking man. If someone new comes along this can help them a little in general health knowledge. If I can be the first exit on their road to a better body then I have done my job. Just trying to help spread some information and thanks for always watching the boards and helping people if there is a problem. As long as it stirs that interest man then we have helped them try to help themselves.

I'd say that combination pre and post workout, you should get at least 2/3 g carbs per pound (about 1.7 g/kg) and a 2:1 carbrotein ratio. That's just from my experience though and I'm an ecto.

The recommendation is actually .5 grams of carbd per pound of bodyweight 1 hour pre workout.

That article says "a large banana has 30 grams of carbs", but isn't fruit fructose? You want dextrose postworkout dont u?

Yea, good point. Fructose deals with primarily liver glycogen revcovery, dextrose and/or malto. is ideal post workout, althought the post workout potassium from the banana certainly could be beneficial.

You guys are doing great. You are looking at the articles and questioning what they say. That is the whole point of them. I am glad to see you have your own beliefs from facts you have read. Guys you are working together as a team and that is the whole point of this web site. Props to you guys for acting like a team.

damn.. that's a lot. it's hard to say you're taking too much carbs pre/post WO though. Originally posted by YellowJacket The recommendation is actually .5 grams of carbd per pound of bodyweight 1 hour pre workout.

From what I've always heard, orange juice is great for post-workout, and I believe cranberry juice actually contains more glucose than orange juice. Sadly, I don't have any articles to back this up.
