You are not meant to drink Powerade etc before a game. Only water, the power drinks apprently take from your stored energy supply you have for when your totally knackered and to keep you standing. Drink water to keep your thrist down and wait till the game is over so you can restore the energy while you use the last of your supply.

For what it's worth, drinking an energy drink before a game is just plain stupid, especially if it is really hot outside. Energy drinks contain caffeine and caffeine is a diuretic meaning it dehydrates you. Water before and during the game is really the ideal thing. Water's about all I consume for games, not that I play too much anymore.

Also, drinking Red Bull or a stimulant (containing caffeine) before the game is bad. Red Bull increases your heart rate. doing exercise after drinking it will also increase your HR. 2 helpings of increased HR would not be good for you - the body may not be able to cope with the increased blood pressure.Just to let you know.

A spoon of Peanut butter, 4 tablespoons of honey, and a mouthful of vinegar. I used to down that concoction right before I'd step on the wrestling mat. By the 2nd period it would kick in and you would fell like your ready to run a marathon.As for actual drinks I just power chug a few Redbulls when I need a kick in the ass.

I drink water normally. I agree with what has been said on here by a few people. Red Bull, power horse, relentless, kick, etc are not good before a game. They will indeed pump up your energy levels and heart rate immediately, which in the long run you will be doing more energy in a short space of time that your body can take. Stop masking the problems and get on water and creatine, or Kre Alkalyn. Kre Alkalyn is fantastic, gives you power, strength and endurance and produces natural fuel for you to use. Great.
