    Has to do w/insulin transporting nutrients into your taxed/worked muscles. Dextrose provides the insulin spike or surge to make this happen.

    SO basically it is just a good source of carbs to move the nutrients to where they are needed. For my ppwo how many carbs should i include i am 180lbs trying to bulk with minimal fat gains and probably inbetween 12 and 15 body fat (just a crazy guess though)

    There are stickies atop the page that will guide you through a good plan of action on how to determine amounts based upon what your goals are. You should do that before you start downing dextrose pwo.
