Surge Alternative


#1

Is there a cheaper alternative to Surge that would suffice during a mass gaining phase? I beleive I read somewhere that whey + gatorade powder mix is a good one? What kind of ratio would work for this or some other mix? Thanks


#2

Any type of protein + carb mix would due. Surge keeps to a 1:2 protein/carb ratio, but some people keep at 1:1 and I personally aim for 1:3.

Gatorade powder, dextrose in bulk, WMS and even fruit juices (even though some people will claim that this isn’t optimal).


#3

Thanks - so mimicking Surge’s carb and protein values with whey + gatorade powder is a safe bet for a good alternative?


#4

Yeah, it really just comes down getting enough protein and calories throughout the day. Carbs help for replensishing glycogen. You can’t go wrong really.


#5

Are we talking Surge Workout Fuel or Surge Recovery?
