    That's ideal. I do the same and it helps me have energy throughout the session.

    a scoop in with ur post workout shake wouldn't be a bad idea either as it'll produce an insulin spike improving protein synthesis.

    I've heard that spiking insulin before working out is a bad idea as it interfers with adrenalin but I could be wrong

    I was always under the impression that maltodextrose was a slower release carb so the insulin spike was fairly low. Personally it has never harmed any of my lifting workouts and has in fact given me more energy for the duration.

    The statements true but whether it's a bad idea or not is open to a lot of debate.

    The gi of all maltodextrins is over 100 so as long as you don't take very small amounts the insulin spike will be very large.

    do a search in the supplements, diet/nutrition bit. there is a LOT of info. about it on here.

    basically its a powder providing a convenient source of carbohydrates (it mixes in liquid easily). although complex in nature it is absorbed quickly by the body. thats the gist of it. it has uses etc...
