I honestly can't remember if he did add any additional carbs to the PWO drink for glycogen replenishment as well.
That's a little too expensive a trick for me to try out at this point....but Poliquin usually has some good results and experience to back up his claims.
glutamine is also easily converted to glucose and i think can be of benefit with regards to glycogen replenishment...Ido? Ido?
