How to recover well after running

Nov 16, 2023

Good recovery is important after running. During running, your body has burned carbohydrates and needs to refill them. For the recovery of your muscles, it is also important to fill up on protein. You do this by eating products that contain a lot of protein and carbohydrates. Think of fish, meat, legumes or dairy products. Do you want to get the most out of your performance? Check out our tips and fill up your nutrition with Amacx sports nutrition.

Tip 1. Hydrate after running

Because you lose a lot of fluids while running, it is important to drink plenty of water even after running. When you drink enough, you can prevent muscle cramping. When you drink enough, the blood in your body darkens. This means your heart doesn't have to pump as hard, so you don't get tired as quickly.

With the Hydro Tabs, you replenish minerals and salts in addition to fluids. Dissolve 1 tablet in 500 ml or 750 ml of water.

Tip 2. Support your muscle recovery with protein

Proteins are essential for good muscle recovery. You can get these from low-fat cottage cheese, chicken, tofu or nuts, for example. You can also supplement these with sports nutrition.

  • The Recovery Bar contains 20 grams of protein per bar and 22 grams of carbohydrates. A tasty and healthy snack that contributes to the recovery of your muscles and refills the glycogen stores.
  • Or choose the Recovery Shake to recover your muscles and replenish your carbohydrates after a long endurance workout. The recovery shake contains 20 grams of protein and 30 grams of carbohydrates. Take this shake immediately after exercise.
