Immediate Recovery (within 30 – 60 minutes after training)

GOALS GUIDELINES
Restore/Replenish muscle and liver glycogen (carbohydrate stored in muscle) after training. Glycogen is the storage form of carbohydrates. Consume 0.7-1g/kg body mass carbohydrates. Ideally choose a combination of fast releasing and slow releasing carbohydrates to ensure quick glucose availability to the muscles without drastic blood glucose fluctuations.
Rehydrate with fluid and electrolytes based on sweat loss in training. Carbohydrates should be combined with electrolytes to rehydrate post-training. This solution should ideally be a hypotonic or isotonic drink to increase the absorption rate.
Muscle repair and synthesis Consume protein at 0.2-0.5g/kg body mass OR 10 – 20 g protein in combination with carbohydrates.
Reinforce training adaptations and immune system support. Recovery strategies should support the synthesis of red blood cells and other cellular components as part of the repair and adaptation process. Focus on consuming colourful and anti-oxidant rich foods (e.g. fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish, nuts, olive oil).
