Post Cardio Nutrition

Weight trainers know tossing back a whey protein isolate shake with fast-digesting carbs will maximize the post-training anabolic response. Now, new research shows this supplementation strategy also works for cardio. Scientists at the University of Bath (U.K) had athletes perform two 90-minute bouts of running at moderate intensity four hours apart. One set of subjects drank a shake containing whey protein isolate and sucrose in the four-hour recovery window, while two other groups were given sucrose-only drinks. The protein shake group ended with a greater growth hormone release, which was measured after the second treadmill run.
