Fitness and nutrition enthusiasts will tell you that the most important meal of the day is not breakfast, but the post-workout meal. In a very general way, I am in agreement. The body is absolutely primed for recovery and absorption of nutrients following an intense training session, probably more so than in the morning when most people eat breakfast. Though I place more emphasis on post-workout nutrition than pre-workout nutrition, what you consume before your workout can have a substantial impact on performance and recovery as well.
Searching for the right sports supplements can be… slightly overwhelming. There are inexpensive products that taste great and mix quickly, but a quick glance at the ingredients reveals a laundry list of chemicals and scary, unpronounceable compounds. Then there are natural products that only half-dissolve, leaving behind little clumps that certainly do not taste like cookies or cream. Blegh.
Now, there is another option: NEW ARO Black Series sports supplements, available exclusively at Vitacost.com.
