Glutamine and Recovery

Opt for Glutamine to help you recover for the next day’s activity. Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) is the bane of many athletes, bodybuilders and/or fitness enthusiasts training life.

How do you prepare yourself mentally and physically for a training session, when it’s as much as you can do to lower yourself onto the proverbial throne (aka toilet) the morning after a heavy legs or dead lift session!? The answer could be GLUTAMINE!

Glutamine is very important to our muscles, in fact, over 90% of the body’s Glutamine is stored within skeletal muscle. According to Llewellyn, (2009) the body’s Glutamine stores deplete after a heavy training session, meaning the replenishment of the Glutamine pools can go some way to stunting catabolism (muscle breakdown) and aid recovery for the next days session.

How useful might this supplement prove to be for an Olympic athlete such as a 100m and 200m sprinter racing on consecutive days!?
