Supplementation

I am 37 yrs old and have not been taking any type of supplementation while training. I decided to start something yesterday. In addition to a daily vitamin, I just started taking the Endurox Capsules. Does anyone have an opinion on how it has/ has not helped them? Suggestions on what may be better?

I use a meal replacement after my training rides and it seems to be helping my recovery. Even though it is not denoted as a "recovery" drink it has 20 g protein and 80 g carbs and a little fat and seems to work nice. I also take a L-glutamine which is designed specifically for recovery. I seem to recover faster when using this combo of course long run will really tell.

I did a hard BT workout yesterday and I feel 90 percent recovered this morning, which is usually 60 - 70 percent, not bad. Of course it could all be in my head...

Good Luck

I know it isn't a specific formula for cycling but I used Twinlab's Mass Fuel shakes after every ride (just one, in addition to regular post-exercise meals) and was recovering extremely fast... Plus, I felt increase in power output too... It is a 33% protein and 66% carb mix and covers also your daily vitamin's needs... Just watch your total daily caloric intake, so you won't be gaining 'big' muscles...

I always got it from a local GNC store and was recovering better than when using Endurox...

Here is a decent review:
