Recovery Drinks

I'm looking for a good recovery drink. I run 3 times a week: Mon, Wed and Fri for 4 miles. Saturday I Mountain Bike. Recently, I started swimming on Tues/Thurs in anticipation of doing some open water swims and Triathalons. The swimming workouts are about a 1/2 hour long.

My body is certainly telling me that it needs something more to recover than water and Breakfast.

There are a gazillion recovery drinks out there that provide protein, carbs and glutamine. What's your fancy?

Thanks for your input.

I was thinking about trying the P90X Results and Recovery Formula, but I haven't gotten around to it just yet. I'm trying to balance out the carbs to protein ratio, and so far chocolate milk is the best thing I can find. And it's cheap, so that's always a plus. And I can honestly say that it's helped after doing those crazy Insanity workouts

I have to keep it in the back of the fridge for a recovery drink only, and I have to pour out exactly 8 ounces or I'll do the same thing. And it helps to keep me on track with eating right because I feel like I'm drinking something that I shouldn't have, yet it's helping me recover from a tough workout. So it's a win-win for me: cheap recovery drink and I can still have chocolate while eating healthy. Can't get any better than that!!

Milk is the best recovery drink for the price, casein and whey protein, BCAA's and carbs, it's got it all. I run 25-30 miles a week and it's all I use. I usually drink a quart in between finishing my run and breakfast.

Milk Content. 1 cup (250ml) whole milk contains 8g protein, 13g carbs & 8g fat for a total of 150kcal. 1 cup also has 290mg calcium & 107g sodium. This combo makes milk perfect for lean body mass gains & recovery. Full content:

Casein. Slow digesting protein. Milk consists for 80% of casein, a dairy protein that keeps you full longer and helps fat loss & muscle repair.
Whey. Fast digesting protein. Milk consists for 20% of whey which helps muscle repair. This is the same kind of whey you find in protein shakes.
BCAA. Milk is rich in branched chain amino acids : leucine, isoleucine and valine. A diet rich in protein, especially dairy protein like milk, will get you plenty of BCAAs. No need to waste your money on supplements.
Carbs. Milk contains lactose. Your body uses this sugar to replenish your energy stores. Some canít digest lactose. Check the tips at the bottom.
Fat. Unless you go fat-free, milk contains 1 to 3g fat per 100ml. Fats digest slowly and keep you full longer, thus decreasing hunger.
Calcium. Dairy calcium increases fat loss & improves bone health. The latter is especially important if youíre a woman (osteoporosis).
Water. Milk is about 87% water. Proper hydration improves muscle recovery and can increase strength by preventing fatigue & stalling.
Electrolytes. Milk contains sodium & potassium. These minerals improve re-hydration by retaining the fluids you consume post workout.
Nutrients. Biotin, magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin B-12, vitamin D, vitamin K, riboflavin and many others (naturally or through fortification).

5 Reasons You Should Drink Milk Post Workout.

Muscle Gains. Research shows a mix of slow and fast digesting protein is superior for lean body mass gains. Milk is 80% casein, 20% whey.
Fat Loss. Dairy calcium increases fat loss. The fat in milk keeps you full longer which decreases hunger and thus helps you to lose fat.
Recovery. Milk is a fluid and has electrolytes. Research shows milk is superior to water and sport drinks for rehydration post workout.
Cheap. When you consider the protein (whey/casein/BCAA) and calorie content of milk, itís one of the cheapest foods available.
Easy. Milk requires zero preparation. 1 quarter (1 liter) milk can be a perfect post workout meal depending on your daily caloric needs.

Scivation Xtend. It's a branch chain amino acid (BCAA) complex. Watermelon tastes amazing.

4 miles? Water. Sometimes propel for flavor.

Biking and swimming, I coudl totally see needing something more. I only use protein or supplements after lifting, not cardio.

Not a runner but big into lifting and i compete (bodybuilding) 1-2x a year. Clean protein with glutamine is a must. Protein alone will help with recovery but if you can, add in glutamine with the shake. Stay away from Muscle Milk or any of that shit; they fill their stuff with bs fillers

8g of protein per 1cup is NOT that much. You should be looking for something with 20-30g protein per serving and less sugar than what milk has IMO

Use the P90X Results and Recovery Formula! You won't be disappointed. I have been using it for over a year now and it has a 4:1 carb to protein ratio. This aids in faster muscle recovery, less muscle fatige and soreness. To purchase the recovery formula visit my site at www.teambeachbody.com/BryanM76. Sign up for your free account and place your order. If you sign up for Home Direct (HD) you don't pay shipping cost.
