    drinking water/glucose mix during workout

    i'm not sure if i'm a victim of my own eagerness. you know... you start out at the gym all eager and keen, listening and learning. then you unlock the door to the multitude of information on nutrition and supplements. you talk to people, hear things, and digest as much as possible.

    a while ago i was told it was a good idea to add some glucose to my water to drink during my workout - 0.4g per bodyweight. and i have been doing it for some time. recently i realised i could barely remember the theory behind why this was supposedly a good idea. something to do with encouraging an insulin spike...

    now of course i'm wondering if anyone else has ever heard of this theory. hence this post. is there credibility in this theory, or am i just increasing my blood sugar levels for no reason?

    There are alot of posts relating to this...I personally drink dextrose(not glucose by the way thats what sugar becomes in the bloodstream) and whey immediately before my workout and immediately after with more dextrose in the post w/o shake. I believe it gives me more energy,increase my strength,and I have lost bodyfat while doing this. Of couirse my workouts are heavy weight,power(multi joint-compound) movements,45-60 min in length. I am a beleiver in the insulin spike. I go up in lbs or reps each week.
    I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

    OP, if you properly design your pre-workout nutrition, you should have adequate energy to get you through your workout with just using water during your workout (assuming you are performing a standard workout). Now if you are talking about some type of endurance feat/ training completely fasted, then that would be different.
