There are marketers out there that are trying to get you to buy these so called “energy drinks,” claiming they are good for recovery after a workout. But beware, these energy drinks are loaded with caffeine, sugar, and empty calories and don’t make a good recovery drink at all!

What you really need is something to replace those lost fluids and electrolytes. You can try a sports drink if you want, which is usually lower in sugar and higher inĀ  electrolytes. What I like best, however, and can save you a little money is making your own recover drink. I love a fresh juice mix: pears, spinach and celery make a good combination.
