Preferably from whole milk. Most chocolate milk comes in skim.

Damn! Those are some tall gals! How tall are you?

5'7"

Apparently caffeine and nicotine in my youth stunted my growth!







plus -- we're all adopted (though, they are twins - hence the identical height).

Tell me about it. Of course, like older siblings are wont to do, they still never let me hear the end of it and we're all in our 40s now.

Re: Need a serious recovery supplement

Well, whole milk with chocolate to make chocolate milk is so much better than skim chocolate milk. World of difference.

I've played around with the coconut juice and coconut water. Basically it has some carbs and lots of potassium with some magnesium, sodium, phosphorus and calcium. I've used it when coaching or during my workouts.

However, the stuff tastes like *** in general. The girls always wonder at the faces I make when drinking it but it does work well. It's much better with lime.

More food, more hydration, more sleep in general.

Try to get some protein and some carbs in after your workout and see if that helps at all.

Bare in mind, if you are eating enough throughout various parts of the day, you'll basically be trickling in protein and BCAA's to your body ALL the time. This is very good for your body.

Re: Need a serious recovery supplement

I recently sustained a severe rupture to my pec during bench press strength training. As much damage as you could do without doing a full pec tear. Tendon stayed intact. I'm still in recovery, but I've had a crash course in supplements these past 4 weeks. Diet is important as well as hydration.
For muscle repair, anti-inflammatory, I was introduced to BCAA's as well as a supplement called Repair Gold who's main ingredient is bromelain-naturally found and extracted from pineapples. They can be taken before or after workouts to aid with fuel and recovery. The wipe-out feeling, I would guess you need more sleep or you may just need a little something extra for breakfast. I get that way in the morning sometimes, but not as much in the evening after a full day of eating.

Re: Need a serious recovery supplement

Arguably the best PWO supplement I have ever taken.

http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/univ/torr.html

-Carbs for glycogen replenishment.
-Protein for muscle repair. A LOT of research shows 20 grams is sufficient PWO.
-Amino Acids, again, for muscle repair.
-Glutamine and Creatine.

I dont mind the price, $60 for month supply..2 dollars a day..I give homeless people on the street more than that! (No I dont.)

What would be your concern with the sugar if he used it strictly PWO?
