I invested in a couple of bottles of Powerade earlier today, mainly because I wanted a couple of those Olympics sports bottles they're giving away
So I'm thinking I mightaswell drink the Powerade while I'm at it.
A typical gym morning for me will involve:
- Protein shake + banana
- Resistence training (45 mins)
- Interval training on treadmill (25 mins)
I only tend to drink water before / during / after my workouts but I was thinking of going with something like this during next few sessions:
- Water before the gym
- 500ml drink during workout (125ml Powerade + 375ml water)
I hear these types of drinks are only supposed to be for athletes due to their high sugar content, but what if I'm watering it down that much with only 1/4 of the actual drink itself?
Would it be so weak it would be pointless having it on a permanent basis?
