PWO is considered the most important time of the day to consume carbs. Get on it bro.

Yeah I would say a big difference. Optimally you want a high GI carb (dextrose or maltodextrin for example) w/ your protein in your PWO. Like M3 said, it's arguably the most important meal of the day. Not only does insulin from the carbs help shuttle protein to their respective targets (think protein synthesis), but your hormones are elevated (glycogen synthase) after you work out and allow for greater uptake of carbs (supercompensation) to refuel those muscles. It's very important!

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

And speaking of PWO, does anyone use Accelerade or similar product? I got a huge bottle of it for Cycling and it really helps on longer rides (~3hrs)

I experimented with is as a PWO drink for weight-lifting a few months ago and felt it was really helpful with muscle recovery on back to back heavy days, however i noticed it seemed to make my stomach feel noticeably bigger. Not sure if it was temporary bloating from some of its ingridients, or just the sheer amount of Sugar it contains (I stopped using it right away)
