Post workout

I have a question about what kind of carbs you want for post workout recovery. Are glucose polymers(small to medium chain glucose units) the way to go? Are glucose polymers anything like maltodextrin? Will someone please try to clear this up for me and explain to me what I should be looking for in a postworkout recovery carb source. Thanks everyone, your time is greatly appreciated.

At T-mag, read the two “Solving the Post-workout Puzzle” articles by John Berardi. They’re in the previous issues section or use the search engine.

Wasn’t there a study that used whey protein with 2 tablesspoons min. of honey as a great post workout drink? I am sure I read this somewehre.

I use bulk dextrose and maltodextrin powders, check out Supplement Direct. outlaw.
