    are we talking table sugar?

    dextrose and or maltodextrin would be better at replenishing glycogen and shuttling protein

    table sugar is glucose and fructose known as sucrose.
    dextrose is just glucose absorbed very very fast.
    maltodextrin is a longer chain carb but is STILL very easily broken down and wil still be absorbed very fast.

    glucose is good for PWO the fructose is not so good as it takes longer in the body to be processed an broken down.
    I personally see there being more point to this than mixing dextrose and maltodextrin which are both processed very quickly.

    Overall table sugar (sucrose) is good and will do the job. This is what I actually use (unless I use lucozade).
    I would also used dextrose, but sucrose is just so convenient.

    Accoring to this article fructose can help with post workout recovery.

    "While glucose is preferentially rushed back into muscles in the post workout state, fructose has a tendency to work its way into replenishing liver glycogen stores. The liver, when called upon, acts as a "glucose pump," releasing glycogen for conversion into glucose to meet blood sugar needs. Fructose, therefore, should also be included in the post-workout drink."

    So if thats the case, wouldn't sugar still be worthwhile using? Not that I have any intrest in using sugar, I prefere my dextrose apple and banana.

    Going off that it sounds like sucrose is better suited than I thought.

    This article suggests that fructose replaces liver glycogen and not muscle glycogen and is therefore not necessary PWO. Who knows? Worth a read though.

    Hi mate,
    not read that link yet but going of the other one it's saying yes it replaces liver glycogen but the liver acts as a pump releasing glycogen that then get converted to glucose and used everywhere that glucose would be.

    Also, knowone is suggesting to just use fructose.
    The suggestion was sucrose (which is both dextrose/glucose and fructose).
    The detrose will still replace the muscle glycogen.

    I would personally have the banana (chopped up in some natural yogurt ;-) for "afters" after the well balanced meal your going to be having and hour or so after the PWO shake.
