    I use Maximuscle products. I've been using them for years - really top notch stuff that is used by professional athletes in all sports.

    Their products are scientifically tested to the highest order and pass the stringent doping tests for professionals.

    To your success.

    Consider taking some EAS instead of BCAA. BCAA's are for preventing muscle breakdown and EAS provides faster recovery.
    Besides that you could take some dextrose to refill your glycoceen levels.

    What helps me is a fruit mixture of apple, banana, orange, oat flakes, eggs and milk after a workout. And the next morning a green tea blend what contains gingko and ginseng. Lots of coffain helps too, but it will effect your playing properties.
    For stamina I just eat pasta^^

    One of my doctor friends has been doing a sports medicine course. The course says the next day fatigue is also caused by depletion of glycogen in the muscles. A very good way of replacing it is, within an hour of finishing playing, take a high sugar load. Glycogen is made from simple sugars and the replacement rate would be highest within that hour.

    So today, I ate a chocolate bar :D

    Honestly, I cannot recall anyone taking a CoEnzyme Q10 tablet and saying, "Wow, I can feel my anti-oxidants being replenished! Now a little 1,25-dehydoxycholecaciferol and I'm good to go another 3 hours!". I'm more inclined to believe in Cheung's "Snickers Therapy". :rolleyes:

    Water, electrolytes and carbohydrates are what's needed during a long session.
    As for promoting recovery after the fact, those among you who are nutritionists and sports scientists would know the products that may help best. But no pill/powder/colourful drink can replace the revitalizing role of hydration, stretching, good overall nutrition and plenty of beauty sleep.

    Scientific studies have shown that the best way to replenish glycogen stores (that you deplete when training hard, and needs to be refilled to get best effect of subsequent training) is to supplement with fast carbs (perfect in combination with protein for best muscle developmentt) immideately after the training session, and then add carbs in smaller doses every 1,5 to 2h for maximum restore of glucogen and recovery. Things like gainers with high-carb/high protein are perfect to supplement hard training. It is also important to eat enough (can be hard to eat as much as required when training hard) with nutrient food to get antidioxants etc.. So eat ALOT between session and get some sugar/rice/bread/pasta (fast carbs) in smaller dosis frequent between the sessions for best recovery..

    Cheers,
    Twobeer

    Thanks Twobeer.

    That sounds scientific enough for me!
