Hi Everybody,

I have a busy 2018 ahead of me and plenty of training to come, I have signed up to do the Enduroman double iron in May, Triathlon X in June and maybe if i have the money and and energy The Brutal in September.

At the mo I tend to eat a meal post session if i have a ride or run during the day but if it is a morning run or swim as i work night shifts i tend to just get a shake or protein bar down me and then sleep or if an evening session quick shake then shoot off to work.

Diet wise I eat healthy throughout the day and get what i need to recover but was just interested in what other recovery supplements people take that may help and their preferred choice of brand, as training is going to be intense the next 6 months +

Cheers

Hello!

I currently use SIS Rego after training.

At the moment I'm reading Brendan Brazier's Thrive Fitness and he's got a few interesting ideas in there, so will be experimenting with these.

Apart from the cost, would prefer not to use supplements, so looking at more natural solutions.

when you get to 7-12 hour rides or 4-5 hour runs you will need to be eating real food during training

I was doing regular 150-180 mile rides with breaks for fish and chips or pizza during the ride... then a high protein meal (steak / egg and jacket spud) after.

you cant do ultra tri on gels/bars and protein shakes.

Nuts have a high calorific content, and are #realfood

Assuming you're not allergic Smile

fish and chips sounds good... Smile

I do eat well and am not saying I will be replacing real food with supplements, I am just curious as to what others products people use as well as food and recovery shakes.

2 bananas, whole milk, honey and ice, then blend that b@ast@rd into oblivion Very Happy

When travelling, camps and races etc I just use 'Goodness Shakes' for convenience.

After my (longer\tougher) sessions I usually have something like Rego, Whey and cherry active as soon as I can.

Then real food after a shower etc.

Although I've not done much longer than 6-7 hour bikes etc.

I used to buy into the poo-poops of protein powders and the optimum absorption window, but there is really no need.
maybe if you are an elite, training all day and gets stuff free from a sponsor Wink then maybe. better off with just eating some good food

It makes reasonable sense to facilitate recovery as early as possible after exercise....availability of sponsored product or shouldn't be a factor to disregard good practice...

Not sure what is poo-poops about an absorption window? Of more relevance is what you consume in that window.

IME, it's much easier to have something quick, like a shake (blended home made or product) than it is to say 'I will eat something proper' mainly for the reason that it's hard to make good decisions when you're tired.

The best combo for me is to have a shake which gives me the chance to make a better decision after a shower. Otherwise I just end up coming and sucking down the contents of the fridge and regretting it.

In the past I have made a shake of protein powder, banana and oats all blended up with almond milk, pre mix and left in the fridge then freshly blended as soon as I get home. Then shower and have a proper meal, normally something like eggs on toast.

Hardly ever use my blender; I have jaw muscles and teeth, and can't see the point of faffing with a blender when tired.

Banana doesn't need blending. Milk or home-made kefir straight from the fridge is convenient and quick. For an ultra-demanding session/event I'll make up a bottle *beforehand*, with handfuls of frozen berries and grapes acting as ice-cubes. All it needs is a quick shake.

Anyone want to buy a barely used Magimix blender? Wink

hence the advice to prepare before you go out...you can save your jaw muscles and teeth for when you are not tired...
