The article presents guidelines for post-workout nutrition. Following a hard workout, muscles need amino acids and glucose for repair. Some of important supplements immediately after the last workout include whey protein, branched-chain amino acids and dextrose. A complete meal, vitamin C and fish oil are recommended one to two hours post workout.
