Can someone give suggestions for good, simple carbs to use in my p-w drinks? I can only use so much fruit. Most of the carbs have been coming from oatmeal and skim milk, and I’m thinking this might not be the best idea for post-workout.
Or, is Surge worth trying instead? I’m really compelled to get it, but I’m short on money from buying other Biotest supps.
Agree with Kamran - some even go to 3:1 if ‘very hard’ gainer. Also, a 3:1 ratio of malto : dextrose is sometimes recommended - can’t remember by who though. Could have been poliquin but just not sure.
Surge is the preferred choice, but if you’re strapped for cash chocolate milk is the traditional version. It’s less optimal due to being slower to act. Sometimes I’m tempted to switch just for the taste, chocolate milk is the bomb!
IMO, Surge should be first on your list of supplements to buy, especially if you are on a budget. Nothing else will make that much of a difference if PW nutrition isn’t ideal.(Unless your diet is totally whack)
if your on a budget, I’d go with dextrose. I suppose you could just eat some candy. If your worried about absortion time and want to stick with a liquid then the powdered gatorade is a good choice. [/quote]
Unfortunately, that’s very bad advice. Low budget, sure, but where’s the protein?
If I were dirt poor, I’d rather throw a stick after a bird, kill it and eat it, rather than not eat protein PWO.
Just buy half the amount of dextrose, if cash is so limited, and use the rest to get whey protein. Mix the two, and drink. Instant PWO goodness.
Or heck, get some milk, it’s not that expensive, and put some sugar in it.
Has anybody WMS - Waxy Maz Starch ?
I’ve seen where a lot of people are using BCAA’s and WMS before and after lifting and then about 30 mins after that a protein/carb shake… [/quote]
I just got a HUGE tub of WMS and a 2lb bag of hydro protein. Im gonna give the WMS, bcaa and hydro and maybe some creatine a shot for post workout. I also plan on doing like a 30g shot of WMS like 30 mins before my workout. If you want I can keep you updated on the results. Im curious to see how well it works and if the hype I’ve read is true.
