I’ve been training hard for about six months now. Suddenly, I’m re-evaluating how I approach exercise in an effort to save money and get better, more adequate nutrition.
Usually when I exercise I get three workout drinks: a pre, during, and post-workout shake consisting of 12grams whey protein hydrolysate, 10grams of creatine monohydrate, 25grams dextrose/maltodextrine mix, and some bcaa’s all in each serving. This has worked fine but is also expensive.
Lately I turned to regular chocolate skim milk because it’s said to be an old stand-by. Here the problem is in the high fructose corn syrup, which is supposed to go straight to your mid-section.
I feel a bit overwhelmed by all the different suggestions I’ve been getting from sources. Could someone tell me what they drink, how much, and how well it works for them. I’m kind of a “starving” college student and want something relatively inexpensive yet quality. Thanks for any help you can give.
