What im aiming at is my post and preworkout shake, not the meal. Like right before the gym and right after the gym.
And what is dextrose, and does that give you the anabolic edge, do u have dextrose before the gym or after.
Is dextrose like grape fruit juice, or is it a supplement you buy.
What i take right now is right before the gym besides my WHEY protein shake is, Creatine, with 5 grams of glutamine with 3 grams of ribose, allready mixed, so u just add water. i take that before and after the gym.

Dextrose is a simple sugar with a very high glycemic index. It gets into your blood even faster than table sugar and raises your insulin levels quickly.

The idea about taking it just after your workout is that it will restore the glycogen lost from the muscles and kick start the recovery process.

If you take it and don't work out you'll just get fatter.

So i take it right after a workout, why not take it before and after.
Like when you buy how do you mix it. What do u mix it with,??
