So for you guys who drink some kind of peri shake/concoction, what is your go to?
Some of you guys mentioned gatorade and whey iso (Coldsnap I think?).
I'm about to run out of the stuff I've been using since last November, works well but is too expensive now so I'm looking for something else.
I decided to try one of the more expensive options a while back. PeptoPro (casein hydrolysate) with Waxy Maize. Like 15-20g of PeptoPro with 25-50g of Waxy Maize. Also added a bit of L-leucine powder to boost the amino acid profile.
Just wanted to try to go full bro-science to see if it made any difference after reading a bunch on John Meadows site. The amounts I took were also taken from him.
The carbs from the Waxy Maize may have made a small difference in energy if I took it halfway through a long and demanding session (my sessions at the time were 2 hours of heavy compounds).
Don't take it any longer. I just eat a solid meal 1 hour before training, sip on water during the session, and eat a large carb and protein meal when I get home.
If you want to take something for intra-workout, the most bang for your back is prob whey iso + dextrose powder. Fast acting protein with glucose carbs. Alternatively just drink chocolate milk.
