Stuff We Dig: Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator

VS-Product-Recovery-Accelerator

Vega Sport makes a wide spectrum of performance products with a focus on plant based, vegan, gluten free and all natural products. It’s a little pricey but a great option if you’re looking for the cleanest fueling and recovery products on the market for endurance athletes.

We love their Vega One recovery powder and drinks because it includes 15g vegan gluten, 50% vit and min, 6g fiber, Omega-3 fats, antioxidants, probiotics and greens. Even though it cost more than most products you are used to it’s a much healthier version of a post-workout protein drink. Plus the taste is great despite the added greens!

Learning How To Recover Properly

Learning How To Recover Properly

By Brian Rosetti

Based on my experience as an athlete and a coach, one of the most overlooked components of a runner’s training plan is ‘recovery.’ Naturally, athletes are more focused on the work they must put in to reach their goals, not the time or habits necessary to recover from this work. Running is unlike any other sport in that the body needs more time to recover and bounce back than usual. If you don’t recover properly then chances are you’re going to get sick, under-perform or get injured. My first priority when working with runners is to keep them healthy, even if that means under-training them. The longer you stay healthy the more consistent you are and only after lengthy periods of consistent training is when real results come.
