Post Workout Nutrition

CFLG ace Chris E. shows his post workout routine.

Post workout nutrition is a tricky thing. Theories abound about what to consume after a workout.  From milk to protein bars to blended sweet potatoes to fancy supplements with names that sound like a UFC event.  Most people who train hard have their favorites whether they can justify it or not.  Not only is what you consume after a workout important, but the time frame in which you do it is also important.  Fifteen minutes, 30, an hour, combinations such as a quart of milk in 15 minutes with a full meal in an hour.  Some people vary their post workout nutrition depending on what the workout entailed.  Heavy lifting, aerobic threshold training, CF style WODs.
