Most people don’t understand the importance of the proper nutrition post-workout, so they all-together skip it. Usually, they feel that post-workout supplements just add on to their calorie intake for the day, and feel that they will gain weight. I’m here to tell you that this thinking is far from the truth! It’s very important to get in the proper post-workout nutrition, and the P90X Recovery Formula is perfect for just that.
P90X Recovery Drink Review
As you all know, it’s very important to take in whey protein post workout for proper recovery, but what people don’t understand is that it’s also very important to take in simple carbs as well. Simple carbs? Yeah. Don’t worry, this is one of two times that it’s OK to take in these “bad” carbs. The other is right before your workout. Why? Simple carbs are digested quickly into the system, and taking them pre-workout spikes your insulin levels and energy, helping you get in better workouts. Post-workout, your glycogen stores are low and it’s important to replenish them so that muscle is not targeted for energy. Also, carbs help transport protein to the muscles for proper recovery. You have to remember that bulding muscle helps speed up your metabolism, helping you burn more calories throughout the day.
There are other important ingredients in the P90X Recovery Formula, like Vitamins C and E, L-Glutamine, Creatine Monohydrate, and Arginine, and all assist with proper muscle recovery. As you know from a few posts earlier, creatine helps tremendously with post-workout soreness and fatigue, and speeds up the recovery process. The vitamins help reduce soreness and assist in the repairing process. Both arginine and glutamine both help with the healing process as well.
You are supposed to mix 2 scoops of the P90X Recovery Drink into 12 ounces of water, and take it within the hour after you workout. Like I have mentioned before, your body immediately goes into repair mode post-workout, and the hour after is the most important time to take this supplement.
With a proper carb to protein ratio at 4:1, and with all the essential vitamins and ingredients, the P90X Recovery Formula is one of the best post-workout supplements that I have found and something I highly recommend!
