Default TKD: how long before a workout do you pop your smarties?

Hi all. I'd like to try adding some fast carbs before I work out, as I'm starting to 'bonk'. I've seen people quote 30-60 minutes before. Immediately before would be more convenient for me. Any thoughts?

Thanks,
~Am

I'm on CKD, so I do things a tad different. Monday and tuesday I really dont need carbs, but by thursday I really feel like its beneficial for my workouts to add 15-20 grams.

Fast carbs (sugars) no more than 30 minutes.
More complex carbs should be 60-75 minutes.

Thats my take.

Thanks! I'm thinking that taking it just before should be okay. I'm going to try it, anyway.

I'm in a yoga class for the whole hour and a half before weight work, and it would be disruptive to get up and eat. :-)

Mmmmmmmmm smarties!! When I'm lucky enough to have a stash of them (sent from my mom in the States), I hoard them for workout nutrition,

I like to have a roll right when I start my dynamic warmup, and then munch on 3 or 4 more rolls during my warmup lifts and the session itself.

So immediately and during is my vote.

If I recall correctly, they are 5 grams per roll.

What in the world are 'smarties'? And WHY is it you take them?
