The intensive physical training programmes followed by many athletes often involve repeated bouts of physical exertion with relatively limited time available for recovery between exercise sessions. These individuals therefore strive to maximise their rate of recovery following exercise and the ingestion of carbohydrate is now widely recognised as an appropriate nutritional strategy to achieve this aim. This review considers several key issues relating to carbohydrate ingestion during recovery from prolonged exercise, with specific emphasis on the most effective methods of replenishing depleted fuel sources and ultimately restoring the capacity for physical exercise.
