So my son decided to take a Surge to football practice yesterday and sip it during water breaks. He sipped it during the first two hours of practice, then it was gone, for the last hour heonly drank water. Immediately after practice they had to go into the weight room where after his squats he was extremely lightheaded and almost passed out.
My theory is that the Surge raises insulin levels and then after another hour of practice then lifting weights he crashed and was probably in a hypoglycemic state. So to my question, am I full of shit here, or could this be the problem? I told him he should have just saved the Surge for during his workout, then he could come home and have a meal.
I just want to make sure I'm giving him sound advice. His coach was pretty concerned, as was I. Everything was fine with him after he got home, and he said practice went great today.
