From one athlete to another.,
This review is from: Optimal Muscle Recovery: Your Guide to Achieving Peak Physical Performance (Paperback)
If you compete--or are intent on excelling--in any sport, do not miss this rare book of sports wisdom. I have been a cyclist at the national level for four years and competed in Crew (rowing) all throughout college and this simple yet comprehensive approach to recovery is spot-on.
I was one of the original 40-30-30 Diet test case participants in Seattle back in 1992. That diet has merit, but for athletes that are really expending huge amounts of energy, this 60-25-15 approach is much better. Especially in relation to insulin levels and how they effect a speedy recovery and uptake of glycogen for the muscles.
I especially appreciated the sections on natural substances that aid in performance and recovery (along with suggestions for specific suplimentation doses).
