Recovery Nutrition: Drinks, shakes and bars. 

Why focus on recovery nutrition?

Recovery is fundamental for healthy progressive endurance training and racing.  

Recovering properly helps promote more consistent and higher quality training.

Recovering correctly helps reduce the risk of injury, supports our immunity and general health. 

Refuelling accurately and consistently after workouts will restore glycogen stores, replace fluids, promote muscle repair and bolster the immune system.

However, recovery is usually the first element we ignore due to our busy lives. 


How to recover with nutrition

Recovery nutrition is one of the quickest and simplest ways an athlete can meaningfully improve training, racing and general health.  

A simple way to support your recovery is to refuel, hydrate, and immediately support long-term regeneration. 

  • Refuel: Supports the bodies glycogen stores. 
    • Carbohydrate
  • Hydrate: Supports a balanced body.
    • Water with or without electrolytes
  • Regenerate: Repairs and builds muscle.
    • Complete protein


Within 40 minutes of a hard or long training session, begin by replenishing glycogen stores and hydrating with carbohydrates and fluids. This is also an excellent time to include protein to help regeneration and muscle repair. 

No later than 2 hours after a hard or long training session, focus on eating a balanced whole food meal including protein, carbohydrate, fibre and antioxidants. 


40 minutes after training:

  • Refuel with carbohydrates.
  • Hydrate with fluids.
  • Re-generate with protein.


  • Recovery drink: Specialist recovery drink or bar.
  • Natural homemade smoothie or bar.
