    Recovery

    Hey guys, I'm wondering if you physical fitness freaks can help me out with recovry supplements. At the moment I'm looking to add 2 days of weight training to my 2 days compulsory PT (the program varies) and 2 days of judo. Also, in 2 weeks I start a new posting, which means 4 days a week of compulsory afternoon PT, but I don't want to give up judo even if the sessions are the same day as PT at work. So what I want to know is, are there any supplements out there that promote fast recovery for the body? I have heard great things about creatine, but from doing a search here it seems creatine is more for increasing muscle mass. Soooo, any pointers?

    I don't take creatine or any of those protein supplements (I don't need the extra cals). My two favourite supplements to take after heavy workouts are made by Musashi which are available in Australia:

    1. 'Muscle Recovery' - BCAAs 500mg (contains L-Leucine 250mg, L-Valine 150mg, L-Isoleucine 100mg)

    2. 'ZMA+' - contains Zinc, Magnesium, B6 and Manganese (as amino acid chelate)

    Glutamine + Vitamin C is a good combo.

    You can get ZMA and BCAAs from pretty much any supplement store. I've not tried ZMA yet but am going to get some soon.

    A good multivitamain wil help to cover any deficiencies in the diet too. Or a supplement like Greens+ is supposed to be great too, especially if you don't get enough veg.

    What is your diet like? All the supplements in the world won't make up for a diet too low in cals or nutrients.

    What the hell does 500mg of BCAA do? I thought standard doses were at least 20 grams for recovery/muscle building?

    Creatine willl help, and it is dirt cheap. Buy plain old creatine monohydrate, micronized is best. 5ga day to start, I take 7g a day now.

    You taking a multi?
    Drinking plenty of water?

    LIguy - you're supposed to take 4 capsules before a heavy workout and 4 after the workout. I find taking half that dose does wonders for my recovery.
