My question is this: is there any reason why he could not use my Surge during and post game?
Just to throw another opinion or two into the mix, I think this is a case where the old “chocolate fat-free milk”-trick would be sufficient, just to get the kiddo some calories, protein, and basic sugars PWO.
He could probably get away with a half-serving of Surge, but since you already know that it effects you in a certain way, there’s a chance it’ll be the same with him, and that could, at the very least, interfere with several training sessions (getting sick and possibly discouraged).
You also might try asking Christian Thibaudeau in his Locker Room, as I know he has a lot of experience with hockey players of all levels.
Many thanks for pointing that out, Chris. I didn’t even think of asking him.
Chocolate milk is what I had been him, albeit not fat-free, so far. He really does need something between his game and when he gets to eat. This honestly is new territory for me so it’s a little confusing. I didn’t play team sports myself (only things like track and field, martial arts, lifting) but the energy expended seems to be so much more for these kids and I’m concerned about proper nutrition for him since he’s a picky eater to begin with.
So very many responses here though. Thank you everyone!
Chocolate milk would be a better choice from both a health and recovery standpoint, granted he has no issues with lactose intolerance. And, it doesn’t have to be fat-free. As a matter of fact, there’s evidence pointing to full-fat milk postworkout having greater effects on protein synthesis.
PS - I’m a father of two boys, and sports nutrition is my full-time profession. I have no vested interest in any commercial entity. Basically, you can trust what I say as reliable and based in ample scientific evidence.
As far as I’m aware, there are no lactose intolerance issues that have presented themselves.
That’s great that you’re a sports nutritionist. I’m sure I’ll be picking your brain from time to time if you don’t mind. lol
In all fairness, Bill Roberts did give what I thought to be a very unbiased answer to my question and opted against children using Surge. I do appreciate your concern for vested interests though and always question them myself. Mr Roberts is still da bomb though.[/quote]
Yeah, I’m a big Mr. Rogers fan myself, RIP…
I think you’ve confirmed your own intuitions here, no? There is such a tremendous current of misinformation that pervades this industry, and unfortunately the lay public is a group of sitting ducks in the midst. And yeah, feel free to pick my brain, but note that I’m only here occasionally.
