Recovery

At the end of a hard (typically cardio in nature and lasting 60 minutes or more) workout it has been proven that chocolate milk is an effective recovery drink.  Read about one study here done at CWU that compares chocolate milk to a commercial recovery beverage.  One thing to keep in mind when you are drinking any beverage for performance is that you need to properly match the quantity (i.e. calories) with the effort of the workout.  The definition of a hard workout is relative, most of our members won’t need a recovery drink when they get back from walking the dog around the block  . . . .
