    Glutamine and BCAAs are fine both pre- and post workout, try 5 g pre and 5g post.

    Avoid the cranberry juice as it contains fructose, which does little to replenish muscle glycogen stores. Use dextrose instead.

    Buy some Gatorade in the small size- you can take this with your post-workout shake. This contains enough dextrose.

    Try using a google search for dextrose; I can't give you a website here.

    make sure the gatorade is powder and not the liquid kind.

    To answer the question of "Is glutamine and Cranberry juice okay?"

    NO, cranberry juice is between 2.5 and 2.8 pH and will destroy the glutamine if theyre mixed together. I take Lglutamine to help keep antibiotics and medicstions from ruining my stomach lining any further and its recomended you mix with water. But you can mix with a juice with low acidity like apple.
