Surge Question


#1

For those of you that take Surge, how much, and how often, do you take it?

Do you take it pre-workout or post-workout? Or both? And how many scoops?


#2

I just take a serving of it after a workout... though I may mix it a bit stronger than suggested since my container won't hold enough liquid.

There are some good threads and articles discussing this whole subject if you can search them out.


#3

Two scoops immediately post-workout, just like the label says..


#4

Usually I take the recommended serving size, for anything.

I mix two scoops in a shaker bottle and sip it during my workout then chug whatevers left afterwards.


#5

Thanks for the replies, guys.

The reason I asked is that I've read a number of different articles that recommend taking some sort of protein/maltodextrin/dextrose combo BEFORE the workout, as well as after.

Some people who I've talked to will chug some sort of pre-workout Surge shake and drink one after, as well.


#6

Any other ideas?


#7

mmmmm Surge, not as good as mountain dew. :0


#8

I consume 1 serving (2 scoops) during my workout, and 1 serving afterwards.

I used to munch on a couple of bananas during my workout, but substituted Surge for that.

I hated the taste to start with, but I guess I'm becoming immunised to that, over time. However, I really do notice a much reduced DOMS effect since I started using Surge.


#9

I train in Karate and incorporate athletic training programmes (e.g. WSSB, designer athletes etc.) with it.

In 2005, I only consume 2 scoops of Surge with 500ml water Post-WO. Recently I start to take 2 scoops with 1 teaspoon of instant coffee pre-WO and 2 scoops Post-WO as well.

Differences:

1) Has more energy during and after workout.

2) CNS fatigue has largely reduced.

I recommend it both pre-WO and post-WO as long as the money allows and the overal training intensity is high.

Hope it helps,
