Save your money, and use a dilute protein shake with dextrose for during your workout.

You can buy a huge tub of powdered Gatorade at Costco or Sams Club for a few dollars. I buy it and mix it with Creatine and Protein powder and take it right after my workout. If you are gonna use Gatorade make sure to use the powdered versus pre-mixed though and always buy bulk dextrose or Gatorade.

You can buy a 50 lb bag here for $40. Not sure how much shipping would cost for that. I've never bought from this place before. But damn that's a lot of sugar. :D

someone actually posted the above site on this forum.

i also bought some gatorade powder online (couldnt resist, i cant help but love the fruit punch flavor). it is definetly helping me get more energy towards the end of my workout. i bought a 10 lb package of the stuff (made up of 8.5 packets) which makes ~20 gallons of gatorage which is 80 of those 32 oz. gatorade bottles. cost $25 plus $10 for shipping. definitely a money saver if you are going to buy gatorade cause if i gave a 32 oz. bottle of gatorade a generous price of $1, thats $80 bucks to buy that much gatorade from the store. $35/$80=~.44. so i get alittle more than double the amount of gatorade for the price i wouldve had to pay at convience stores

Gatorade during a workout is fine. Dextrose is fine. Protein w/ dextrose is fine. But, in general, carbs during your workout should supply you with energy and keep you in an anabolic state.
