The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    I've got my hands on whey, but is dextrose needed also?

    My dad is willing to buy my whey now, but I haven't asked him about dextrose yet. To get 10 lbs. of whey, it would cost 53 dollars. To get 10 lbs. of whey along with 8 lbs. of dextrose, it would cost 65.19 dollars. And this would last me about 2.5 months. My question is: is the dextrose really necessary?

    I know that neither whey nor dextrose is absolutely necessary, but is dextrose as important as whey for Pre/Post-WO Shakes?

    not as iportant, it is a delivery agent for the protein, You can also just have a piece of fruit or other fast carb righ after you work out and right before you have the shake to do pretty much the same thing, even the milk you mix with have 12g carbs per 8oz. Im glad you got some whey! I just ordered a 10lb bag myself. Did you get ON 100%?

    to add on to the fruit discussion, fruit isn't as optimal for PWO since fructose refills your liver glycogen but a higher glucose fruit like bananas are fine, just add in some other carbs as well.
