    High glycemic carbs pre workout

    Is there anything inherently negative about consuming dextrose or other sugars pre workout to assist your performance for strength exercise ?

    Does consuming pre workout high glycemic carbs (with whey) do anything with your hormone output which would negatively effect the results of your bodybuilding/strength training program ?

    Such as..instead of consuming 60g of dextrose + 40g whey intra/pw, i consumed 30g of dextrose + 20g whey pre-workout....then consumed the remaining 30g of dextrose and 20g of whey intra/pw.


    Assume daily / weekly calorie intake is at or slightly above maintenance, your weekly intake is set up to prevent you from gaining bodyfat.

    What negative or positives do you know of which would pursuade or disuade you from consuming high glycemic carbs pre workout. ??

    It's subjective. You *Might* gain benefits from taking it, or you might actually experience negative effects personally.

    For example: When I take whey and carbs pre-workout I lose focus, strength and feel overall just simply lethargic and tired. So for me, it's a big No-No.

    It's most likely got to do with hypoglycemia which is brought on by the extra super insulinogenic mixture of fast acting carbs and whey. This causes a lot of insulin to be released and blood sugar will actually plummet in many individuals which can cause lack of strength, focus etc, some time after the intake of said drink.

    While the body will compensate eventually - for some, this process may not be very efficient or the reaction to the drink was especially strong and thus it's hard to work out with low blood sugar.

    As long as it doesn't negatively impact your performance in the gym and the CHO and protein fits into your budget, without displacing a sufficient amount of whole foods as to result in a micronutrient deficit, it should be ok.

    That said, you'll achieve no special benefits from doing so.

    Dextrose types of liquids (sugar, water, some electrolytes ) may help only good after 35-40 minutes in performace sports since you will go into "aerobic phase "mostly and blood sugar level will decrease ...

    Taking them exactly before training causes problem in "energy level" due to the "insulin story" ..The best way is to consume them 1 hours before training...Within 1 hour the level becomes normal ...

    The best way for longlasting type energy is to eat some "complex carbs with appropriate glycemic inex values " 1.5-2 hours before training and to get some dextrose intake after 35 minutes with small gulps during training ...

    I train fasted (with BCAA's) before strength training. I train fed before significant endurance training. Bananas (high GI), peanut butter (high energy, low volume), bread (high GI sometimes) etc. See what works for you.

    I havent had good luck with High GI foods before a workout.

    Always need them afterwards or I crash and feel groggy the rest of the day.

    There is a huge amount of disinformation about insulin. Blaming it for anything is like shooting the messenger. If you get fatter, it can ONLY be because you ate more calories than you needed.

    Fast digesting food = large but brief insulin spike
    Slow digesting food = smaller but longer lived insulin spike

    Net result = same.
