    What's the difference, and which one is a better choice for pre / post workout?

    Dextrose is pure glucose derived from corn. This IS the same as your blood sugar. It will get into circulation fast, no processing needed, and raise insulin (good thing post workout, not good any other time IMO).

    Maltodextrin is a polymer of glucoses. It is glucose untit linked together. They must pass through liver processing before getting into circulation. So it will take a little longer, but still a High GI carb (good post workout but I would only use it there).

    This is a great combo to boost insulin and also refill glycogen stores after you finish your lifting. Get it as soon as possible after lifting. Whey is a great protein source for pre or post workout. It is fast acting. Stick with it in addition to the carbs listed above for your post work out drink.

    Monitor how you feal, and your fat. If you are getting fat, cut down a bit on the carbs.
    I would not take either of those carbs before working out because the insulin spike will make you drag. Have a good meal 2 hours before working out; then at 30 to 45 min before lifting eat some apples and oranges and have some whey protein.

    Post workout asap have the carbs listed above, and a decent serving of whey in WATER. Bananas and blended oats are good for carbs post work out also.

    1 to 2 hours after that have yourself a nice big meal

    One is a sugar, maltodextrin is from corn I do believe. Both digest quickly and spike insulin, I would opt for oats over both.

    I prefer oats on both sides of a workout. Oats + whey provide enough of an insulin spike to restore glycogen stores.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I have another question though, why is maltodextrin often in preworkout supplements (for energy)? Could this just be becasue it works well with creatine?

    would those 'sugar' substitutes be worthwhile to take? Im talking about sugar twin, sweet n low, etc. i do have the option of buying some bulk corn sugar dextrose, but those substitutes contain dextrose and are pretty convienient. what do you guys think?

    Isulin spike is not needed and is not need to transport creatine. If you want simple carbs then use dextrose.

    actually all these guys that keep saying oats...... either one of these is fine, it actually acts as a kind of key to unlock the muscles absorption of protein and carbs.
    Most protein powders have Maltodextrin in them anyway as do a lot of 'normal' foods you may eat...though some are option for Waxy Maize now.

    Perfect shake: Your protein of choice, BCAAs of your choice, and either maltodextrin or dextrose.

    Guys please research what option is best for your training goals and what things actually do before you offer an opinion

    The comparison doesn't really matter in the long term and a potential good meal pre/post workout would be really anything you want.
    Just make sure you take some carbs and protein with some fat pre workout and you should be good.
    Get your macros for the day and that's it.
    Tired of the same fat loss bullsh*t?
