FAQs

Recovery is centered around replenishing the body and repairing damage to the muscle, as muscle strength comes from stressing then healing the tissue. After a race or exercise, it’s best to replenish glycogen, electrolytes and BCAAs within 30-60min and provide your muscles with the necessary nutrients to repair damage to the muscle.

ROCTANE Protein Recovery Drink Mix helps athletes rebuild, refuel & rehydrate after demanding activity to make sure they’re ready to hit it hard again the next day. Created to promote recovery, ROCTANE Protein Recovery Drink Mix delivers 20g of high-quality whey protein to initiate muscle tissue repair and rebuilding. Each serving also provides fast-acting carbohydrates to replenish muscle glycogen stores along with sodium, the primary electrolyte lost in sweat, to aid in rehydration. Mix two scoops into 8 ounces of water and shake well. Enjoy within 30 minutes after training or racing.

Whey protein and isolated whey protein. Whey protein is our choice for recovery because it has the highest biological value of any supplemental protein source, which indicates how much of the protein is used by the body for repair and recovery of tissues. It’s also a fast-acting protein source, digested and absorbed more quickly than other proteins, including other milk-derived proteins such as casein, or plant-based proteins. Whey protein isolate is the most purified, protein-rich form of whey protein, and is what we use in new ROCTANE Protein Recovery in addition to hydrolyzed whey protein isolate, which is further broken down into smaller, more easily digestible particles to promote absorption and speed delivery to muscles!

Anyone that wants to take care of their muscles and optimize their recovery. Ideally, no one wants to lose muscle, this is one way to help.

Science suggests taking in a protein supplement 30-60 minutes post workout to help with the recovery process and replenish muscle glycogen that was depleted during the workout.

ROCTANE Protein Recovery is gluten-free and kosher certified, however it is not vegan-friendly due to the whey protein.

Vanilla Bean for the W!

I love the new Roctane recovery mix (double the proteins) and it works great on it's own with some almond milk. Single serving is just perfect for travel, especially when taking a long flight. I take it every weekend when training for triathlon and marathon, making a huge difference in recovery. I have also added it to my evening pre race dinner ritual for some added carbs and protein, being ready to #ROCtane the next day.

Necessity of Recovery

There's no single "silver bullet" of success in cycle racing ... but all the little things accumulate to success. Our Masters racing Team and I are proof. 2015 was our best season ever, in large part to training effectively ... and GU Recovery is a crucial component of our routine. Yes, routine. GU Recovery as soon as we finish EVERY ride. After every race, we host a GU Recovery Lounge at my car, where Teammates de-brief, calm down, and begin their recovery with a bottle of GU Recovery + soy or almond milk. Those little disciplines add up to success - BIG success.

tastes and works great!

Despite taking electrolyte tabs and chews (both non-GU brands, sorry) I'd regularly get post-workout muscle cramps after my longer weekend mtn bike rides-- with the gu recovery drink, the cramps stopped completely! great product and the chocolate smoothie tastes great and is easy to mix. Thanks GU!

Love to Recover

My favorite part of a killer race or workout is sitting down to an ice cold recovery drink. When it is hot my favorite is Orange/Pineapple mixed with a little mango and ice in the blender. If its cold the Chocolate Smoothie tastes great with either skim milk or almond milk. Don't see the Orange/Pineapple available now which is a bummer as we're heading down to Tahiti for some reef pass barrels after cycling season and I only have one tub left. Still though, love the feeling of just drinking it down and feeling my legs or arms relax and recover. Good stuff for sure.

Great for rehydration

Great for hangovers, or rest day recovery. I like the strawberry flavor well enough. It is a little hard to mix.
