Drink Chocolate Milk

I used to carry some of the ultra-pasteurized chocolate milk that doesn’t need refrigeration with me when I went climbing. I stopped buying it last year. But, for recovering from a workout, research has shown low fat chocolate milk is better than sports drinks.

A 2006 study conducted at Indiana University by Joel M. Stager, professor of kinesiology, et al and presented in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, found that when athletes drank low-fat chocolate milk after an intense workout, they were able to work out longer during a second workout round than after drinking a commercial sports drink.”
