Recovery products or diet

I'm wondering what are some great products that can help with my recovery, or somethings i can tweek in my diet. Of course the minor aches and pains are going to come, but the muscle soreness after giving your all, then coming back the next day start to catch up to you. I am not currently using any supplements or shakes and I eat pretty clean, I just want to give maximum effort every day. Any recommendations?

Re: Recovery products or diet

Assuming there are no other glaring deficiencies in your nutrition or sleep....creatine, fish oil, HMB/beta-alanine, and a good whey/casein blend right after training.

Lucky for you, At Large Nutrition (WFS) sells high quality versions of all of those things, and if you click the link you'll see they're running a 30% off sale through today. Nitrean+ and Results would be good first options for you.

*in no specific order

1) Mobility, lots of it.
2) Whey isolate mixed with a CHO solution directly post workout. Dymatize is a good brand that is well priced.
3) Creatine, Beta-alanine, Multi-vitamin, Fish oil
4) Plenty of sleep
5) Quality food and sufficient caloric intake
6) Quality training program

Re: Recovery products or diet

good advice given above. i will add to make sure you take rest days as needed, or do some light active recovery instead of a high intensity workout
