Should you take carbs before/ after (or both) during a workout.

And what are some "clean" carbs to eat.

Before if anything. I don't know what "clean" carbs are (glucose is glucose) but you would want something complex, so a slow steady stream of glucose would enter your bloodstream for the workout.

what is maltodextrin, and where can I find it?

So would it be ideal to throw Oatmeal into my post workout shake?

you may want a faster digesting carb source post workout in order to get the nutrients to your muscles faster.
