    dextrose before workout.

    does anyone use this before workout? I work out directly after waking up. I usually Eat a banana and have a 7 protein blend shake with some carbs in it too. what do you think about adding a drinnk of dextrose? or how about maltodextrin?

    I'd go with a lower Gi carb source per workout so you don't crash in the middle.

    I see no benefit of drinking sugar before a workout nor anything during a workout except water.
