To promote recovery and endurance, Myprotein nutritionist Liam Agnew recommends incorporating the following supplements into your new training regime.
If you’ve recently started running, it’s likely that you’ll experience some muscle soreness. Liam recommends supplementing Clear Whey after a run to help reduce soreness and repair damaged muscles. It's recommended that following endurance exercise, 0.25g/kg of protein (per hour of exercise performed) is needed to promote recovery. Clear Whey contains 25g of protein per scoop making it an easy, convenient way to get your post workout protein in.
Designed with convenient recovery at the forefront, Recovery Gel Elite combines protein and carbohydrates with BCAAs and glutamine for an all encompassing recovery gel to help you keep up the pace in your training.
Carbohydrates are the predominant fuel source during high intensity endurance exercise. Consuming Recovery Gel Elite after your run will replenish your depleted carbohydrate stores and the protein will help to build and repair new muscle, which will increase your recovery rate.
Caffeine has been shown to increase tolerance to pain and improve time to exhaustion during endurance exercise. If you’re new to running and finding it difficult maintain your pace, Liam advises consuming caffeine 60 minutes prior to your run. To see the benefits, it’s recommended you consume 3-6mg of caffein per kilogram of bodyweight. Pure Caffeine contains 200mg so this will easily allow you to hit that total.
