recovery mealsExercising burns up amino acids, glucose, and glycogen stored in the muscles. Upon completion, your muscles are more receptive to accepting nutrients that would restore and repair levels found in the muscles.

Replacing your glycogen storage levels quickly allows your body to recuperate faster and recharge your fuel system for the next workout or event.
