Eating high quality, fast-acting carbohydrates and protein create the conditions for growth after a workout. Core PWO takes the guesswork out of post workout recovery, containing the fast-acting proteins and carbs needed to maximize muscle recovery after weight training.
It has been called the most important meal of the day, “the anabolic window,” and eating for anabolism. Whatever name you give it, the premise remains: post workout (PWO) nutrition is crucial to reaching your fitness and physique goals. Post workout nutrition plays a number of critical anabolic (tissue building) functions, chief among them the maximization of glycogen storage and protein synthesis, while simultaneously minimizing protein breakdown and the excessive release of catabolic (tissue destroying) hormones. Incomplete or insufficient PWO nutrition is like fueling your new Maserati with regular unleaded – you simply don’t do it.
This all raises the question: what is the ideal post workout nutrition? Is it well known, or a secret? Maybe a certain ratio of carbohydrates to protein, or fat to protein; maybe the timing and frequency? In fact, the situation is vastly less complex, more well-known, and easier to implement than most would have you believe.
High quality, fast-acting carbohydrates and protein have been shown time and again to induce the most optimal conditions for growth in clinical studies – and that is precisely what Core has attempted to emulate with Core PWO. Core PWO takes the guesswork out of post workout recovery, containing the fast-acting proteins and carbs (whey isolate, dextrose, Carb10™ and Cluster Dextrin®), along with other anabolic agents (free-form L-Leucine and Velositol®) needed to maximize muscle recovery after weight training. These ingredients quickly replenish muscle glycogen and shuttle much needed amino acids to muscle cells. Whether you are bulking up or slimming down, all of these ingredients are crucial for proper recovery.
