    Default Energy Drink? Beer?

    While I play singles in badminton, I always have a some sort of energy drink with me.
    before I used to use gatorade (sports drink)and it replenish me throughout the game but recently i tried RELOAD, this energy drink and I found out it gave me more of a boost than gatorade but i lose it faster than gatorade.

    So when I was playing my friend (who beat me everytime i play against him.) I finally beat him! and by the end of the day he was all pooped up and I was hyper. (next week ima try beer )

    Later i found out RELOAD (an energy drink) has a whole lotta sugar and caffine in it... no wonder why i was so bouncy
    so im wondering...

    Im wondering what do you drink?
    Energy Drink?
    Sports Drink?
    Water?
    BEER?

    Monster Energy drink all the way......you can get the 12 pack at Costco for around $14.00.

    I get super hyper when I drink one just before playing.

    lol, i think the chemicals are still in your system when u created your user account

    fruit drinks for me, if none, plain water will do.
    After games, we go for cold beer

    Caffeine is ergogenic because it increases both alertness and the use of fats in aerobic exercise. That's why very high doses of it is considered illegal in many sports organizations. However, there's often a big crash after some time, and its diuretic effects can be tough on the body during extended competitions.

    Now, beer makes for some very interesting games. It'll make you want to hit on your mixed doubles partner, and you'll also develop a new, "deceptive" footwork technique.

    I drink "mugicha" instead of water. It's roasted barley tea in Japanese.

    If I need energy boost drink, I just drink Gatorade or Powerade which also prevent cramping.

    I drink only plain water. I feel guilty drinking an isotonic drink after all the hard work I put into badminton(in terms of the fat percentage I lost =P).

    Cramps are a rare occurence nowadays for me.. so I really don't need isotonic drinks anymore.

    Supposedly the minerals or something like that prevent cramps too. Well, that's what I heard anyway.

    And I don't need anymore energy. I've sufficient energy. Lol! After training today I cycled everywhere at topspeed, uphill, downhill etc. Energy is one thing I do not lack.

    Normally I'll buy Gatorade in powder form (as it is cheaper) and mix it with water to drink in between games. Sometimes I take Milo or Ovaltine as well.

    I also use Endurox Accelerade and/or R4 once in a while though they're rather costly. http://www.enduroxr4.com/

    Hi Joanne,

    Magnesium relaxes your muscles.

    You will be less likely to get cramps if you consume energy drinks that contain magnesium.

    Oh.. oops. Oh well. I'll go back to my old line about refraining from drinking energy drinks then.

    Default All Energy Drinks are not the same

    Hi Joanne,

    All Nutrition Information should be on the Label of the Energy Drink.

    You should take care to have a look.

    All Energy Drinks are not the same.

    Cheers... chris@ccc
