If you are going to use gatorade, I recommend buying the powder and mixing your own. It's much, much cheaper.

Has anybody here tried to make their own? I'd be interested to hear how it went.

Homemade recovery drinks ...
I would be quite interested in trying that out.
Anyone out there that even know what goes into them and how to go about it??????
