Sports Drinks and Bodybuilding
Are Sports Drinks Good or Bad?
Sports drinks contain two main ingredients that are theoretically beneficial for exercisers: Sodium, which helps the body retain water, and sugar, which the body burns for energy. But very few people exercise hard enough to sweat away enough sodium or to use up their carbohydrate reserves, which the body converts to sugar. You'd have to jog for at least two hours, for example, before your carbohydrate stores would start to run low. So unless you're doing a marathon or other exhaustive exercise, plain water is all you need.
I wasted at least $10 bucks a week on these. Whenever I finished my workout I bought a bottle and sculled it down, thinking it was helping me. Don't make the mistake I did. Save yourself an extra few dollars a week and put it towards a gym membership.
