Recovery

I skimmed through some of the other threads mentioning supplements, but I guess I didn't quite find what I'm looking for.

As far as recovery goes, what are you guys taking? I'd assume a lot of people take some sort of high protein(100% whey?) to rebuild/add muscle. Anything specific? Also, do any of your recovery supplements help keep you moving? Some days after a good workout I leave the gym and just want to go to sleep which is no bueno.

I used to take GNC Amplified Glutamine Microfusion pills and I was hardly ever sore the next day. That being said, I just get over the soreness now.

Eat a lean, high protein diet. Green veggies (spinach, brocoli, etc.) help with recovery. Don't drink alcohol. Getting plenty of sleep a having enough time to recover is important, too.

This is my routine. Except nothing feels better after a workout than a frost mug o' beer.

I'm not sold on the supplement deal as it seems unsustainable in the long run. I'll probably get flamed but just my $.02.

I try to eat plenty of meats and veggies at every meal and I don't usually feel like I'm lacking. It is immediately obvious when I've eaten poorly as my energy is gassed out pretty quick.

This isn't flame, but the reason why I take supplements is because I can't get everything in my diet. Or afford to at least.

I guess it really depends on what the goal is too. IIRC, you're trying to pick up weight/size whereas I'm simply trying to maintain if not lose a little so a good diet is really all I need. I naturally bulk up to a size I'm happy with.

i have been a huge fan of herbalife for a long time. back in feb i started working out again after a long time of not because i snowboard and hike so much that i didnt really needs to workout much.

i broke my collarbone the end of feb and only after one month of using herbalife protie supplements and their rebuild protien in particular, i was able to start lifting again. since then i work out only twice a week, and have gone down 3% body fat from 11% and have put on 10lbs of muscle. i do 3 shakes a day along with meals as much as i can to put on weight. and after every workout/hike/run/work(when its labor intesive) i do a rebuild shake. 24gm of protien.

It works both ways. So long as your muscles get nutrition after being worked to prevent catabolism (muscle break down) Shakes are just a faster way of delivery immediately after workout.

As for recovery glutamine is one of the best ways.
Drink a lot of water and stretch.
