So do you guys always use this stuff, or just when in big training cycles? I used to take recovery drinks when i was in a big training block, but haven’t done so (trained hard or taken supplements!!!) for a long, long time now.
I am finding that i am slower to feel fresh after hard sessions. Not sure if picking up a good recovery routine will help or not … or if it’s just that bastard Father Time catching up with me?!
I always use a recovery drink, or some chocolate milk at the very least, on anything other than an ‘easy/recovery’ session.
On top of the direct nutritional benefit (taking in carbs and protein at the time it is best absorbed, kick starting recovery before the next session etc.) it makes family meals a lot easier as I can eat normal food/portions rather than insisting they follow a diet to help my training!
Honest question, why would you want to get your recovery carbs from a sugar powder?
Nice food is a significant driver for me to do exersise and I make sure to have somthing nice ready like a good slab of carrot cake or similar after a workout.
