Hammer Nutrition Training Tip #5: Recovery
REPLENISH YOUR BODY WITH CARBOHYDRATES AND PROTEIN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AFTER EACH EXERCISE SESSION, IDEALLY WITHIN THE FIRST 30-60 MINUTES.
What you do immediately after your workout is just as important as your workout itself! “Refill the tank” as soon as possible (ideally within the first 60 minutes) to fully replenish glycogen and build and repair muscle tissue. Consume 30-60 grams of complex carbohydrates and 10-20 grams of protein. Recoverite supplies both in the ideal 3:1 ratio. Also, be sure to take antioxidants after exercise to neutralize cell-damaging free radicals and speed recovery.
