Post Workout Recovery Drink
« on: April 03, 2018, 11:34:01 PM »
What is your go to post workout recovery drink? I typically mix up a protein shake after a really hard effort to try and refuel, but didnt know if people use other things. Why do you use what you use? I saw some of the pros were pushing chocolate milk, which I am sure is also a paid endorsement so is it really good for you? Just looking to see if maybe I should be doing something else.

Water is my go to post workout drink... :-)

Chocolate milk *can* be good for you. From what I remember back in the day when it first surfaced as the go-to post drink the milk has the needed proteins to rebuild, chocolate refills the glycogen stores in the body. So you are getting a good mix of both protein and carbs to refuel and rebuild. Granted, the 2 zillion fake sugars in that Hersey's syrup may not be your best carb source.

I'm not a big believer in the "protein for growth" window. I think you should eat if you are hungry (speaking about life, not racing). So I follow the same philosophy post-training. If I am hungry I eat, if I'm not, I don't force myself to eat simply because someone tells me I have to get it in w/in 20 minutes of finishing my training.

Veggie protein powder
Spinach
Coconut oil
Blueberries and/or pineapple
Water

Stuff all of that in the Vitamix and teach it who's boss.  Consume.

Sounds like it probably tastes good too, does it?
