Fitness Tips For 2/19/2014
Post Workout Liquid Nutrition
Post Workout Liquidity
If you want to maximize your training, what you do after the workout
is almost as important as what you do during the workout. Of course
rest is a big requirement, as your muscles won't grow unless they
have significant post workout rest. It is actually the rest phase
where the muscles actually grow.
Nutrition also plays a huge role in post workout recovery and
subsequent growth. The muscles and other elements in the body are
starving for solid nutrition after a hard workout that burns up a
lot of the body's available nutrients. Solid as in sound, not as in
solid versus liquid, that is. That's because for the immediate
effect of post workout nutrition, the best nutrition comes in liquid
Why is liquid form so vital after a workout? Digestibility. Liquids
digest much faster than solids. In fact the time that it takes for a
solid to digest actually takes it beyond the time frame for fast
action muscle rebuilding. So for the most important post workout
recovery input, you want to go with a liquid.
You can actually take use of a 2-hour window to reload your muscles
with the right type of nutrition but the time frame is segmented.
That is, the first part is more important than the second. During
the first part you want to get a liquid element that contains a mix
of protein and carbohydrates as that is what will address the
muscles (and other body elements) as fast and fully as possible.
Later you can go ahead and have some solid food nutrition support.
However, always remember that the first part of the nutritional
rebuilding is the most important, and that the first part needs to
be liquid, not solid.
For your next hard workout, recover with plenty of rest, and also use
a liquid protein/carb mix for the quickest acting nutritional support
you can get.
