To actually state my question, what’s the recommended way to “begin drinking 15 minutes prior to starting the workout”? Should I drink a serving pre and another intra of Surge or just sip a bit before?[/quote]
Fore <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/surge-workout-fuel"target=“new”>Surge Workout Fuel, the label says to mix two scoops (standard serving size - 1 hour workout) into the recommended amount of water. That’s your pre, intra, and post, all in one bottle.
Basically, just start sipping 15 minute prior to the workout. Some people like to take in a third pre, a third intra and a third post, but you don’t have to be that precise. For longer, tough workouts, add another scoop or two with extra water.
