I ran into this thread called "Jungle Juice" in the Recipe section.. I was thinking of using this minus the creatine and whey for now. When I low carb I feel alright energy wise as long as I'm fed and not over/under doing the fats. I want something that is going to give my muscles what they need to go through the work out.

So will a 3.5x serving of gatorade powder be enough for a pre-workout drink for a low-carbin' mofo?


I recently attended University of Northern Iowa Football Camp, and we had the teams weight trainer give us a talk about lifting. He suggested mixing a drink that ALL of their players drink while LIFTING in the weightroom. The drink consisted of:
3 1/2 x serving size dry gatorade
2 scoops whey
5g creatine (optional)
What do you all think if this mix? Im gonna try it, I dont have the best mix (Lime gatorade, Chocolate Whey, and Fruit Punch creatine, mmmm!)

3.5 servings of gatorade?

That blows even the biggest low carberers out of ketosis..... What is your definition of low carb?

Why the hell would you be playing football and only taking in 50g or less of carbs per day ?

Why remove the creatine and whey? 3.5 servings of gatorade is tons of carbs.

Are you needing energy? Take some caffeine...

Powdered gatorade works great. Try out different amounts till you find what works for you.
