The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Built with Chocolate Milk.
Last Monday, I shared my experience completing Run 10 Feed 10 with the Built with Chocolate Milk team. Before I share more information about why chocolate milk makes such a great recovery drink for athletes, here are a few more photos from the race.
As I mentioned last week, more than 20 studies support the benefits of recovering with the high-quality protein and nutrients found in lowfat chocolate milk. The protein helps repair lean muscle and has the right ratio to carbs to help tired muscles return to peak condition. Chocolate milk also provides fluids and electrolytes like calcium, potassium, magnesium, and sodium to help athletes refuel post-workout. Whether you’re running, swimming, biking, or even training to combine all three, chocolate milk can help you build to reach your goal.
This makes Built with Chocolate Milk a perfect sponsor for two athletes training to complete the 2014 IRONMAN World Championship Race in Kona-Kailua, Hawaii. World Champion Speed Skater Apolo Ohno is joined by Women’s Health Fitness Director Jen Ator in completing Mission Apolo: BUILT WITH CHOCOLATE MILK. I’ll be sharing more about the mission and its documentary series in the coming weeks. Until then, the first episode is below. Click here for the rest.
