    looks fine for PWO , but you make the same thing with a tub of whey and a bag of dextrose and it would be far less expensive.

    biotest makes good products, but their shit is extremely overpriced. if you've got the money, go for it. if not, make your own shit

    2:1 carb:protein ratio. 50 g dextrose or maltodextrine or whatever you want (oats is a good choice, I prefer to eat something PWO so that what I take) and 25g of whey, for example.

    Post workout nutrition is not rocket surgery. BCAA's and/or protein + carbs.

    It should be in a damn sticky I guess :
    Alan Aragon
    or Berardi's point of view :

    Both suggest a 2:1 carb:protein ratio PWO, I guess that's the bottomline.

    if you order from proteinfactory (*awaits uproar from PF haters) you would use this formula:

    60% dextrose
    5% glutamine peptides
    35% hydro 1400

    that is what Surge (basically) is.

    here's an example from trueprotein instead of PF...

    60% Dextrose
    5% Glutamine Peptides
    25% Whey Protein Isolate Ion-exchange
    10% Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Concentrate

    Flavoring: Tropical Blend
    Sweetner: sucralose

    Surge tastes like cake batter that has too much sugar added. It was too sweet for me and thats saying a lot. I still have 2 tubs in my pantry and i mix in have serving now into my shakes. From now on I'm sticking with gatorade mix and whey.
