A major issue for those who undertake large bouts of exercise is ensuring recovery is sufficient enough to allow for good performance the following session. Sufficient recovery is vital in rehydrating, restoring muscle glycogen and reducing fatigue. In order to enhance recovery, individuals participating in exercise must ensure they acquire the right macro-nutrients, especially carbohydrates and protein. Sports nutrition becomes incredibly important when engaging in endurance exercise with recovery protein decreasing true muscle damage and providing an opportunity for muscles to repair.
Carbohydrates if consumed post-workout can help maximise muscle glycogen, replenishing glycogen levels within the muscle. Replacing electrolytes lost through sweat can help maximise fluid retention, reducing losses and ultimately the risk of dehydration.
An important consideration for ensuring recovery is sufficient is making sure that sports nutrition and muscle recovery supplements are palatable as well as readily available. The best recovery drinks for endurance sports such as cycling and running consist of a recovery formula that combines carbohydrate with protein. Myprotein Energy and Endurance provide great tasting, palatable recovery nutrition available in the form of: recovery shakes, energy gels, powders and bars.
