How much dextrose do you use to get that insulin spike pwo? I've read through some of the threads here and it looks like it ranges everywhere from 10g to 80g.. Is there no 'optimal' amount that you should take?

Correct. About 5 grams can raise blood sugar levels depending on how low it is. It's dependant on a number of things. I tend to use no more than 30 grams. For legs I'll bump it up to 100 grams.

Post workout i take 2 scoops of whey with 23 grams of dextrose and 23 grams of maltodextrin, with creatine and glutamine.
