The three nutrition goals after a training session or event are: refuel, repair and rehydrate. The Shotz protein bar is specifically designed to refuel and repair.
Muscle glycogen is the body’s preferred fuel source used during moderate to high intensity exercise. If the body is not provided sufficient carbohydrate post exercise to replenish glycogen stores, subsequent performances may be compromised. A carbohydrate snack post exercise will also reduce the degree of muscle break down.
Moderate to high intensity exercise causes the breakdown of muscle protein. Post exercise the body is designed to build muscle, which continues for up to 24hours after exercise. Consuming a protein rich snack within the first hour post exercise increases the protein-building phase.
A Shotz protein bar is the ideal snack for refueling and repairing post exercise.
Shotz believes that it is too easy to ‘double up’ when combining food and fluid. For this reason we recommend dropping a Shotz electrolyte tablet, for all your rehydration needs.
