Default Re: Energy drinks before the game.

I usually have a bottle of 1.5 to 2 litres of water and then I have a 500ml bottle of watered down Cranberry juice.

I drank like half the drink before I played, and finished the rest after like 1 hour, so I dunno. I'll keep trying though.

But nah i dont think I have any salt deficiency cos I can definately taste salt in any glass of water. I can even taste the salt in that drink you mentioned. But tis cool though lol.

What if I decide to add something else to it, any suggestions lol?

By the way its good to see another london baller here. Where in London you based? You play pro?

Yea, about half a teaspoon of salt is fine!

Iím going to ask my buddy next time I see him for other good drinks, heís a nutritionist, so heís the real expert on all this. Iím just a fitness instructor;-)Ö

I tried a watered down orange juice drink during the week, but was to acidy for my liking. Think thatís the advantage of the apple juice. In a book I read cooled down tea (Not the sugar filled ice tea you buy in the shops) was recommended, would be worth a try!

I got to update my location, I moved to Switzerland a few months ago. Was based in Green Lanes, next to Finsbury park, and before that Greenwich! What about you?

I never drink or eat anything right before a game. If anything, it's a small cup of water and that's it.

lol, did feel like I was the only English guy sometimes. Plus at least twice a week a car would pull up with a bunch of Russians sitting in it offering me a laptop. Nice area.

Oh so you were moving alot between here and Birmingham in your younger days? Interesting.

But me I started playing at 16/17, used to play football but I realised I was getting taller and football was getting dry so I gave b-ball a try. I liked it, but I never really played a professional match, just loads and loads of pickup games, although I've trained with a few teams, including Crystal Palace and Haringey Warriors, but cos I was doing my a-levels I couldnt focus too much on it. Now I've finished uni I'm trying to take it as far as I can.
I really regret not palying too much when I was younger though

I just managed to get a crate of VPX Redline RTD through customs- best purchase of the year.

Some people react badly to it, but it beats the hell out of any other energy drink
