Fruits have varied amounts of fructose....but then again this is all assuming you need the pwo spike. Bodybuilding protocols would say a mix of maltodextrin and dextrose 50/50 with a 4:1 ratio of sugar to protein. I think a pwo is good after a glycogen draining longer workout and you need quicker recovery. I think it is overrated for building muscle and really just some BCAAs will do the job. Muscle builds all day long....not just the 1-2 hours after. A more important factor is not the accelerated building of muscle but the sparing of muscle from the affects of elevated cortisol....so take your fish oil too!!
