    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..

    Thanks Twobeer.

    That sounds scientific enough for me!

    I see you list your location as Miami.

    In the US, I believe there is an abundance of rich food. Perhaps you didn't need to take anything extra as the normal diet has plenty of carbs e.g. a trip to dunkin' donuts would suffice.

    They even have a shop that sells protein shakes, like a fast food, drive through or over the counter.

    Yeah. Come to think of it I did go to smoothie king quite often

    Funny enough back then I ate like a pig and still only weighed 59 kilos and I am 1.68 meters tall (google conversions FTW). I'm now up to 65.8kg

    Some added info that may be helpful.

    There appears to be a two-hour optimal window immediately after the cessation of exercise for the administration of carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates appear to be the preferred replacement during this replenishment period.

    The rule of thumb is to take about 1-1.5 grams of carbs / bodyweight Kg immideately after training session, and then go with 0.2-0.3 grams /kg every 15 minutes or so for the next couple of hours. And then about 0.8gram/kg every second hour, to maximise resynthesizis.

    Supplementing with additional protein also helps to faster get from catabolism to metabolism and stop the breakdown of muscles. But it is of course VERY important to plan muscle-resting time in order to build muscles and not only tear the muscles down by training. Periodization and palnning for load-training and more specialized training to transitional training from Type II to Type I fibers etc.

    BCAA, L-glutamine and other amino supplements are all good, but using std. Soya, Whey or cassein protein generally have enough of these aminos anyway. So I would recommend just go with some whey protein, and maybe some extra Cassein before sleep, skip the separated amino-acid supplements if you are not "really" fine tuning all food/supplements on a very detailed level with a higly specialized nutritional coach.

    Also DO NOT underestimate the power of sleep!! Without enough sleep, your recovery will be ****! Sleep is extremely important for a serious athlete recovery.

    Other good supplements to always supplement is Omega3 fish-oil, and glucosamin, good for joints/knees etc.

    Cheers,

    try drinking a pint of chocolate milk.

    studies have shown choc milk is the best for recovering from a workout as you get a healthy blend of simple sugars, complex sugars, protein and fats that help your body rehydrate and rebuild.

    plus it tastes good.

    i don't recommend between sets though. its a post workout drink

    I drink 500 ml of Gatorade (lemon/orange) after a game. Really refreshing

    If you feel you've kinda overworked your muscles and need a hand with muscle/tissue rebuilding etc, then mixing some Glutamine with your milk or shake and banana post-workout is always a good idea. Sometimes I add a bit of Creatine just for fun.

    But I knew this group of guys who used to head out for a couple of beers immediately post-workout, and it didn't seem to harm them at all!!
