Glucose Powder During Training?

Hi All,

I just had an idea… Not sure if its a good one, so I thought I’d get some opinions here!

Would it be a bad idea to mix glucose powder with water and drink it during a lifting session?

If it is actually a good idea, how much would you consume per session?


mixing it with protein is a better idea. You’ll find a lot of info on this subject by using the search function.

whey and gatorade has worked well for people pre/peri workout. whey and glucose is pretty much the same theory and will be effective, but once you try Surge Recovery you will never go back to whey and gatorade again. 40g glucose and 20g whey pre and during your workout would probably be a good place to start.
