Timing and Ingredients = Faster Muscle Recovery
You might not know this (most athletes do not) but you can drastically improve your body's recovery time after a hard work.
Your muscles use a source of fuel, called intramuscular glycogen, and when you exercise, your body actively tries to keep up with demand for this fuel, as your muscles consume it, by replenishing what's during your workout and shortly there after.
We know, that you can drink a concoction of rapid absorbing carbohydrates and protein, immediately after your workout, and it will replenish your muscles of their lost fuel.
The results are amazing. If you're an athlete who feels like your workouts break you down rather than build you up, then this simple trick will be a game changer for you.
Imagine yourself free of sore muscles, and capable of training back-to-back days per week.
It's true. If you supplement with rapid absorbing carbohydrates and protein immediately after you workout, then you will be less sore the next and feel more recovered. It's that simple.
Try This Game Changer After Your Next Workout
Try consuming high glycemic carbohydrates and protein next time you really push yourself. Do it immediately after you finish, so the carbohydrate can get into the blood stream fast, and get right to your muscles. You will recover quickly this way.
We have seen success with 2:1, 3:1 and 4:1 ratio's of carbs to protein and the carbs have to be high-glycemic, such as maltodextrin and dextrose. Chocolate milk does not work because it contains high fructose corn syrup, which is not rapid absorbing enough.
How Much Do You Need to FEEL the Results?
Dosage will vary depending on your size and every athlete is different. So it's worth experimenting.
We tend to adjust the carbohydrate ratio based on 20 grams of plant-based rice protein. If your a lighter athlete, less than 150 lbs, then try 20 grams of protein with 40 grams of high absorbing starch, like dextrose or maltodextrin (we combine both ingredients) in our mix.
