Oh the weather outside has been frightful! And that’s putting it mildly….
With over half the country under snow and/or with temperatures around freezing, I know we’re all growing tired of Old Man Winter. I admit that I’ve been in a bit of a funk….a hibernation mode if you will. Oh I’ve done my training, but this rude decent of the polar vortex down, into the deep south, has left me lacking the motivation for much else.
Recently, I was offered the opportunity to be an ambassador for Core Power. If you’ve been around here for a while, you know that they have been my go-to recovery drink since way back to their Honey Milk days. It’s not often that I find a product I use 100% year around without fail….no substitutions. This is my post-training drink of choice when real food is not an option.
We all know how important recovery is to maximizing the benefits of each training session. And how essential it is to get your nutrition started within the 30 minute post workout window. Sometimes that can be easier said than done, but this stuff helps you help yourself!
Core Power has created the ideal recovery drink for you! It’s got the science in the bottle, however all that science in the world won’t help if athletes won’t crack the top. Therefore one of the most vital elements of any recovery drink, in my opinion, is taste. If isn’t palatable, then it won’t be consumed. If it’s not consumed, then it is of no benefit.
I’ve personally tried almost every recovery drink out there and Core Power actually taste GOOD! I look forward to finding it in my bag after workouts and I make sure that I NEVER run out. My husband and I keep an ample stock of strawberry-banana on hand and we have no difficulty reordering by the case through Amazon.com
Now I know not everyone may be chomping at the bit to head out and order up a case of something new and untested. Luckily, singles can be found at grocery stores and most Wal-marts locally. Or there’s an even better option….
