Post-Workout Nutrition for Endurance Exercise

Endurance athletes and enthusiasts — all you distance runners, cyclists, and swimmers — this one’s for you.

There’s a lot of available information (and opinions) about post-workout nutrition and recovery for strength and power athletes.

Here’s an informative resource for those athletes and exercise enthusiasts whose activity more heavily engages their oxidative and slow-glycolytic energy systems.

In her article, Endurance Exercise: Fatigue and Recovery, Amber Kleckner, PhD discusses what you should eat and drink after an endurance workout and provides some examples of each.

The article also describes the psychological and biological mechanisms that lead to exhaustion and muscle soreness.

Push yourself when you exercise, and be smart about your recovery strategies, to look, feel, and perform your best.

Get STRONGER, Get FASTER!
