Today something really hit me. I had just finished completing 25 reps of front squats and was absolutely destroyed. I hauled my sorry ass to the lockers and laid down on the bench gasping for air with a towel over my head. About a minute later a guy walks up to me and basically wakes me up to ask if i’m ok. He asks if im diabetic and alright. I reply I am not diabetic, just not used to the volume of training.
It makes me think if somehow from taking dextrose and maltodextrin pre and post workout im screwing up my insulin sensitivity. Now I’m a paranoid person by nature and looked into a dextrose diabetes connection as I started taking it pre and post workout, a good 6 months ago. I read that its fine. I’ve been taking around 40-50g dextrose/maltodextrin 50g whey pre (1 hour prior to lifting) and 50g 30-40g dextrose/maltodextrin post. By taking this am I really impacting my body for the worst?
Changing topics slightly I’ve been reading about waylander taking WMS preworkout, adopting his own little protocol. In lay, whats the difference between WMS and dextrose/maltodextrin in terms of chemistry. Dextrose is a refined sugar? WMS is …? Could dextrose/malto substitute for the WMS using waylanders protocol?
