These are the formulas for our workout drinks. We are working on creating a commercial product, but want to ensure you have access to the product as soon as possible. So we decided to share the formula with you so you can make your own. The formulas have been derived from the research and information compiled by John Ivy, Ph.D. and Robert Portman, Ph.D in their book Nutrient Timing in addition to supplementary studies. The serving suggestion for each formula is based on a 170 pound male weight lifting for 30 minutes with the intermediate workout. If you are larger or smaller you will need to modify how much you consume. If you are under 130 pounds reduce the formula by 50%. If you are above 200 pounds increase the formula by 50%. Your needs may be different depending on the intensity of your workout, your current fitness level, and diet. Use your best judgement.

Pre Workout

  • 20 g Dextrose
  • 7 g Whey
  • 60 mg Vitamin C
  • 60 IU Vitamin E
  • 100 IU Sodium
  • 60 mg Potassium
  • 60 mg Magnesium

Take the pre workout 10 minutes before you start to workout with at least 12 ounces of water. If your workout is going to be longer than 30 minutes you will need to increase the amount you make. For every 15 minutes your exercise time is past 30 minutes, increase the serving by 25% and add an additional 3 ounces of water. Consume the additional 3 ounces every 15 minutes after you’ve started working out.

Post Workout

  • 40 g Dextrose
  • 14 g Whey
  • 120 mg Vitamin C
  • 120 IU Vitamin E
  • 200 IU Sodium
  • 120 mg Potassium
  • 120 mg Magnesium

Take the post workout within 45 minutes after you have finished exercising.

Post Post Workout

  • 14 g Whey
  • 2 g Dextrose
  • 2 g Casein

Take the post post workout an hour after you have taken the post workout beverage. Take again two hours after that.

We’ve compiled a list of ingredients you can use to create your beverages. These will provide you a very close approximation. There are a variety of options for Vitamin C. There is research that says ascorbic acid derived from synthetic sources isn’t nearly as effective as natural sources. We have chosen a source derived from natural foods. For Vitamin E you want to ensure you are getting a good source of d-Alpha Tocopherol, which is not a synthetic form. Also keep in mind what is in the casing of the capsule. Stay away from soybean oil if you can. We’ve avoided any flavored substances as they often use artificial flavors or artificial sugars.
