    Recovery drinks

    Curious if anyone has any preferences for post-workout recovery drinks. We've been using AfterGlow. Not bad, just wondering what else is out there and what some opinions might be.

    Is that code for hang-over?


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    I think you should consult #9, but you might have to ask him to take a break from beating the Hawkeyes.

    Actually, did anyone here ever read how Michael Jordan used to drink 4 or 5 beers after games to quickly rehydrate?

    Re: Recovery drinks

    Cardio or weights workout? When I do really long runs, I drink a ton of water and then eat something like a banana and some cottage cheese. When I used to lift a lot more, I drank a Optimum Nutrition whey protein shake.

    Re: Recovery drinks

    I do a lot of bicycle riding, time trials, etc. Chocolate milk is the way to go. It's a lot cheaper than the high priced recovery drinks.
