Intra workout drink for a newbie?

Is it worth buying an intra workout product as a beginner, or maybe just putting something together (I have creapure, dextrose). Is something like Size On just for the more experienced guys? Cheers

    Not just for more experienced guys but it is an expensive product to run and I dont think you will get any value out of it at the moment.
     
    You dont need any intra work out drink! Make sure you are well fueled from food, take a caffeine tab or coffee if you wish and follow some sort of PWO protocol (creapure/dex/whey) and you will be fine.

    I dont believe its for experienced people only. However, I do believe its the cherry on top when it comes to nutrition. You should really have everything else nutritionally wise nailed before this will really be of an benefit.
     
    Post up your diet and what supplements you're using and we can tell you if theres something better to be spending your money on.

    Agree with the other guys, I would be concerned with ensuring your post workout supps are in place and diet in check.

    Not much benefit to taking creatine during your workout.

    Heres the diet ive put together and thanks for your input, i appreciate that. Sorry about the personal notes, like Lidl prices, and the fact that i am totally clueless about fats and havent listed many of them. Fats have my head spinning (how much, what epa/dha ratio, etc.etc. i am clueless!) and I dont know how to calculate them for different items such as butters, oils etc.
     
    I am 29 years old,  6ft 1, 12 stone 9, 177lbs, looking to gain mass. The figures Ive calculated from reading as much as i can are:
     
    266g protein per day

    MEAL THREE 1 11.30am

    122g Salmon/cod or other dense fish (£1 Youngs from Tesco) with wholegrain noodles or rice
     100g (5p) stir fry veggies (25p Lidl) () Groundnut oil
    Small avocado salad (30p) 
    Handful Nuts (25p)
    33g protein, 70g carbs £1.85  
     

    MEAL FOUR 2.30pm

    Chicken Curry with wholegrain rice (slow carb) and veg (£1.30 Lidl and Iceland) (120g chicken, 100g rice)
    Fruit salad (20p Lidl)
    Handful Nuts and Seeds inc Flax (25p)
    36g protein, 70g carbs £1.75
     

    Pre WO 4pm (45 to 30 mins before workout)

    Whey shake made with the Peptide Fusion for different time release and BCAAs
    Banana (fast digesting carb to power workout)
    Creapure

    PWO  shake 5.45pm

    30g Whey
    30g Dextrose
    creapure
    Water  30p
     
     
    MEAL FIVE (PWO) 7pm (1-1.5 hours after workout)

    Ragu made with 200g lean beef mince (£1 Iceland) served with baked sweet potato
    134g with veggies (50p Lidl) (36g protein, 50g carbs) Apple £1.50
     
     

    MEAL SIX  9pm

     Pro Peptide smoothie with quark/cottage cheese, evoo/avocado oil, Peanut Butter, and semi skimmed milk
    65p

    Supplements

    Whey Protein Concentrate
    Reflex Peptide Fusion
    Creapure from Bulk Powders
    Dextrose
    Multivit and mineral
    Fish oils
    Acidophilous
    Zinc
    now super enzymes
     
    How does that sound? its a first stab hopefully not too far wide of the mark. As i say im a bit clueless with fat quantities and ratios, and the whole things quite heavy on rice because i get bloated on pasta, and sweet potato is expensive. Many thanks for any suggestions

    Would agree, if you're new to the training realm, an intra-workout is probably not necessary. Diet looks good, like the addition of the digestive enzymes and probiotics :) I would personally up the fat though and lower the protein intake.
