CARBOHYDRATES

Most powdered carbohydrates are absorbed rapidly. Athlete's are usually looking for a quick energy source before training, a source that will rapidly restore blood glucose levels whilst spiking your insulin.

If you're training once per day, three to five days per week, you need to fully replenish glycogen stores by the following session in order to recover and have another brutal session the next day or so. If you're specifically going low-carb or you're fat-adapted, since you're limiting your daily intake, it's even more important that you make the best possible carbohydrate choices. That probably involves a high-quality carb powder.

Most powdered carbohydrates are absorbed rapidly. Athlete's are usually looking for a quick energy source before training, a source that will rapidly restore blood glucose levels whilst spiking your insulin. This has been reported to be a vital factor for muscle growth and increased protein synthesis. 

Furthermore many people take carbohydrates with protein powder, especially when trying to increase muscle mass and weight. This is usually done in a 50-50 or a 2-1 protein to carb ratio.
