    Do you know how much dextrose I take post-workout?

    Neither do I, because I don't give a fuck. Quit thinking about this too much :p

    I know man, but I cant help it. Im trying to get the most effecient gains possible without using roids or anything else that will hurt me down the road.

    so how many tablespoons of the mix should i throw in with water and chug with my banana before my ON whey :noes:

    If you're eating a banana as well, you probably don't need more than 1-2 T of gatorade as well. If you were THAT concerned you'd be worried about fruit preferentially refilling liver glycogen rather than muscle ;)

    ah you bastard :rofl:

    Ah... Ive been training for a month now. Ive gone from 126 pounds to 140.

    bench from 95 to 135

    squat from 125 to 185

    dead lift from 125 to 185.

    going to start creakick tonight post work out.

    I realize body building is a marathon and not a sprint but I am doing my *best* to get the quickest gains by being efficient and smart. But I still have much to learn. Ive been doing compound movements and working every muscle group 2 times a week.

    I sure hope so, but I would buy 6 gallons of powder in a heartbeat. I go through gatorade like it's my job.
