No matter what your chosen form of exercise, whether it’s a 10 mile run, a weights session or a rugby match, refuelling correctly following a training session is crucial to ensure optimal recovery.
During exercise, your body uses up your glycogen stores in the muscles and liver to provide energy. Also the proteins found in our muscles are broken down and damaged, the combination of these two processes makes you fatigued and unable to perform at your maximum. You need to counter these effects quickly to ensure you are back in training as quickly as possible.
In our latest Nutrition Guide, our Nutritionist Bobby talks you through the top three considerations for recovering after your training session.
