    fuck the bullshit, just drink water. a lot of those "sport drinks" has too much complex crap in them, that actually does more harm that good. ingredients that you cant pronounce, and a lot of high fructose corn syrup, is a good indication to stay away from them. you might as well just drink soft drinks.

    Not trying to be a dick, but do you research the stuff you are talking about......The quantities in these drinks is so far less than what you need to consume to cause remote damage......

    I can't tell if you're trolling or not.

    But I'll play.

    Gatorade uses HFCS-90, which is 90% fructose and 5% glucose and 5% other sugars. Which is why it's so bad for you.

    Vitamin water uses granulated sugar which is 50% fructose and 50% glucose, making it 99.9% sucrose. Which your body can metabolize and process faster. Which is why vitamin water was the best for me during and before training. My body could metabolize the sugar faster and give me energy, while the gatorade was just forcing my body to do a lot of extra work on top of my already training really hard.

    1/3 gatorage and 2/3 water. That's how I mix my bottle before I go to class and haven't found anything that helps me out more.

    I usually just drink water but if I drink anything else (as long as it falls in the sports drink criteria), I feel fine and don't notice any huge difference :dunno:

    I vomit when I drink gatorade before I train. A lot of people literally can't stomach it.

    Gatorade sucks for pre-training.
