Train out of Your Skin, Avoid Muscle Aches with Bananas

If you want to recover quicker after a heavy bout of cardio,refuel with a banana instead of an energy gel or bar. Bananas are more effective at minimising muscle soreness and inflammation after a tough workout, according to a US study.

Cyclists were asked to ride 75km as fast as possible twice,three weeks apart. In one session they refuelled with bananas - 0.2g/kg bodyweight every 15 minutes - and in the other with a carb-based sports drink at the same ratio and intervals.

Although performance remained the same, blood levels of a compound that prevents muscle soreness and inflammation were higher after eating bananas. Thanks a bunch.
