    I notice he drinks something out of a small pouch/packet and assume it is an energy "shot." Just curious what it is.

    The Pouch is some kind of Energy booster made of Mega Carbohydrates. Also he mixed in some kind of powder into his drink, the colored one. I heard It is very similar to Gatorade Endurance formula Powder Packets.

    Reminds me of stuff that...

    ...they sell at the counter at 7-11 (if you live in California)... I did buy one of those liquid energy packs at 7-11 one time, before a match, and it actually did give me more energy and helped me focus...

    As with anything you put in your body, some of it is good and some is bad...

    Thanks.

    They're energy gels, stuff like this:

    I think they are just a source of easily and quickly digestable carbohydrates.
