Carbohydrates and Protein intake after training


When talking about endurance training, it is important to eat enough carbohydrates after training. The muscles sugar depots (glycogen store) were drained and they need to be replenished if you want to be able to train optimally within a relatively short period of time. Intake of carbohydrates with a high glycemic index just after training promotes the construction of the glycogen store.

Even after strength training the intake of carbohydrate is important, because there is a huge "burn off" here too during training.

After strength training, it is important to eat protein immediately after the training, as several studies show that this can improve the building of muscle mass. This is both shown in rat experiments, strength training of the elderly and in rehabilitation efforts.
