it depends on which…personally, gatorade or powerade is better than monsters, redbulls, etc. It also depends on how your body reacts to certain stimulants like caffeine, taurine, etc? Have you read Chris Shugart’s most recent article where he talks about Energy drinks? I would advise it.
I don’t like them because they contain High Fructose Corny syrup which should not be your first choice of sugar during workout times. I would advise buying the POWDERED gatorade because it’s a better blend of sugars. But listen, if you’re a football player practicing in the blistering heat 3-4x a week, drinking any form of gatorade will be beneficial to you.
Are you planning on drinking these sports drinks during your workout or some intense physical activity?[/quote]
well to be honest, I cannot stand Vs, Redbulls and the like, it just feels unnatural to be guzzling down a drink thats artificially loaded with caffeine and stuff I had never heard before they were released.
I don’t do heaps of sports, I do the odd one, never felt tired during it, so water is usually my first choice, unless a sports drink is for free,
but I was just wondering, sometimes after work, when we all gather round , we all have a drink, some drink coke, some drink beer, however, there is not much left to choose from, there is diet/coke zero, but im trying a caffeine free diet (just a personal challenge, for 2 months) so other then that there is not much to drink, except a sports drink so I was wondering how bad they were, otherwise, I can have a glass of water, and get ridiculed by workmates
