Numerous studies have already demonstrated that muscles are hungrier for refuelling after exercise than they are before, giving rise to the concept of the ‘post-exercise window of opportunity’.
In Recovery – the magic ingredient of any training program is protein. I recommend two scoops of UltraMeal powder protein and add a scoop of BioPure Protein (both products are by Metagenics). This makes the best protein shake. Protein overshadows carbohydrate, which are included in the UltraMeal.
What’s the window of opportunity for maximal uptake – it depends on who you read. Everything I read still points to 20-30 minutes max. bio Pure Protein has all the amino acids –these have to be integrated into your recovery strategy.
Many clients start drinking a protein shake before working out and then immediately after…the body composition results are speaking for themselves.
