Milk and resistance exercise


Milk is an excellent source of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. There has been growing interest in the use of milk as an exercise recovery beverage, especially after resistance training. Based on the limited scientific research, milk appears to be an effective post-resistance exercise beverage that enhances the adaptations to this type of training and leads to greater fat loss.


Milk represents a very functional, cost effective and nutrient dense beverage choice for individuals who partake in resistance training, compared to traditional sports drinks.
