Increase Energy & Reduce Pain
If you’re always sore and feeling exhausted it is a good time to start thinking about ways to improve your energy and recovery from any exercise you are doing.
By working out your body will naturally put a lot of strain on your muscles and joints. In addition to that, you’re actually getting micro-tears in your muscles with every exertion. Not to be alarmed though, this is part of the normal process of your body breaking down and building muscle tissue and helps you increase strength over time.
With that said focusing more on the recovery process, you can not only reduce strain and injury, you can also speed up the muscle repair process in a serious way with a solid nutrition plan.
The good news is that there are also some fantastic recovery supplements on the market to help you out. Branched chain amino acids are particularly effective, and they can be taken before, during, or after a workout to boost recovery and muscle healing. BPI Sports Best BCAA is one of the most highly rated in the market and Optimum Glutamine is also another inexpensive and great choice when it comes to replenishing your muscles with amino acids.
In addition, your protein intake is incredibly important to help your recovery speed. Whey protein works well, but time-released proteins like casein that take longer to digest are even better.
