If you have a very low output workout regimen the answer is NO.
If you are one of these people the answer is YES
- I practice CrossFit
- I practice Performance Sports
- I practice endurance sports and I usually exercise for 60 to 120 minutes
- I’m looking to build lean muscle mass
- I usually train upon waking up
When should I take it?
If your goal is mass gains you should aim for intra-workout & post-workout carbs depending on your workout regimen.
Train upon waking and cannot perform optimally on a full stomach, you may experience a boost in performance by drinking a fast digesting carbohydrate + BCAA shake throughout your workout.
Crossfit & Performance sports athlete benefits from intra-workout carbohydrate consumption due to a very high output in terms of volume, intensity, and length of effort.
Endurance athlete that exercises for 90 minutes or longer also benefit from intra-workout carbohydrate.
