What to eat after endurance training?


From previous research, we know that if athletes have more than one workout a day and a few hours apart, a much better solution is to give the carbohydrates themselves (and not, for example, large amounts of protein and small amounts of carbohydrates). 

In turn, Finns showed that whey protein administered after strength training (37.5 g WPC) provides slightly higher increases in muscle mass compared to the administration of proteins together with carbohydrates (34.5 g maltodextrin and 37.5 g WPC). 

And what does it look like in endurance training? 

The effect of administering carbohydrates or carbohydrates and protein on the mitochondrial and myofibrillar synthesis of muscle proteins was determined. Drinks were consumed after cycling training. 10 trained cyclists (age 29 ± 6 years, VO2 MAX. 66.5 ± 5.1 ml / kg / min) have completed two attempts. For 90 minutes they rode a bike with an intensity of 77 ± 1% VO2max.
