Dextrose and Maltodextrin
Where can i get a good Dextrose and Maltodextrin mix? Having trouble with this one.
Also, I am used to drinking a protien smoothie I make up after I work out. I use frozen strawberries, a banana, OJ, and ~50gms protien. If i get the total sugar from all the fruit and OJ close to 100gms. Can I take this in place of the dextrose/maltodetrin mix so many bros use in their PWO? I am about to run a cycle of Test E in a few weeks, so I need to get my bulking diet straight.

i think the dextrose would be better than the fruit because it is already broken down into sugar's simplest form. fructrose is a little harder to digest.

that will work pwo. Any carb works pwo. Unless your planning on doing anything strenous the same day as your workout you dont need to worry about the fastes possible glycogen replenishment(some might disagree, this is jmo). I have switched to milk as my only pwo carb source and I have noticed no drop in gains at all.

But, being on juice, it still wouldnt matter either way?

nah juice doesnt matter either way. Only thing I would do differently diet wise when on the juice is bump upp totaly protein consumption a bit. The increased protein synthesis got to have some amino acids to work with

the sane approach I guess is to gradualy increase. I usualy dont count anything besides protein when I bulk and I always go by stenght gains not by the scale. So its something you have to play by the ear. Gradual increase would be the best if you want to minimise fatgains thats for sure. But it might mean less gains the first weeks aswell.
