I mix up some perpetuum sometimes after a ride. A banana or whatever is probably just as good though. Main thing I hear is to eat/drink ASAP after your ride, that you absorb carbs best within the first 20 minutes post ride.
I thought the same until I tried adding a scoop of HEED (and Endurolytes for good measure). Makes it go down a lot easier, and if you read the Hammer info on "replinish, not replace", it makes sense to help get carbs/electolytes back in your system ASAP. Hammer uses a lower ratio of carbs/protein than Endurox anyway, so adding some back into the mix shouldn't hurt anything.marvinmartian said:Tried Hammer Recoverite but it just did not have enough flavor/sweetness for post ride
I suppose I could elaborate. During my full time racing days (that is to say I was on a team and rode all the f*ucking time) our coach was one hard core motha' and had rules and guidelines for just about everything we did. The one anomalous item he allowed was two beers after we rehydrated after a race. He didn't drink, and didn't want us drinking the week prior to a race (so, pretty much never.)John Kuhl said:+1 on the beer. I drink a lot of water
when I ride. So after the ride I hit the
shower, then have a couple of beers.
When I ride the thought of that beer
really gets me going.
I usually try to get a 4:1 carb to protein mix. To the OP I take 2-4 scoops of endurox r4 after a ride.rydbyk said:Any thoughts or experiences with this product??? It only has 3 grams of protein, where most other have around 10 grams it seems. I wonder if it really even matters
+1 for Ultragenmiss rides a lot said:I like First Endurance Ultragen. Today I did a pretty easy 2 hour ride, though, and made myself a banana/honey/almond butter sandwich since I've got bread to use up
