I'm fairly new to lifting weights, but I'm trying hard to get the nutrition part right. When I went to the gym today I started talking to one of the owners and he said that if I was serious about working out I shouldn't be drinking water while in the gym, but rather a Gatorade or some form of protein shake.
I usually have this after the workout. Are you really supposed to drink some form of energy drink while lifting weights?? Sorry if this is a basic questions guys, but my googling was inconclusive.
