Optimize Your Workout Recovery
Some say there’s an art to optimizing athletic recovery. Based on the over 6000 scientific journal articles published on the topic, we say it’s a science. We developed our Whoopass Energy Supplement to do more than provide energy – we also wanted to reward your body with a great-tasting drink that will also supply some vital ingredients that will support your recovery program.
Post-exercise food consumption is a critical component of a recovery program. As we all know, the first thing your body needs you to replace is the fluid lost during exercise. Carbohydrates are also a vital piece in the recovery puzzle. Eating carbohydrates within 2 hours is necessary to resynthesize muscle glycogen, which is depleted during intense exercise. And third, it is essential to replace the sodium that is lost during high intensity exercise when you sweat. Sodium balance is important for both the proper nervous and muscle function. Drinking one can WhoopAss provides the three key recovery ingredients, plus more.
We all know that exercise is good for you, but did you know that free radical production tends to increase during exercisei?

Taurine – necessary for normal skeletal muscle functioning.
Caffeine – In addition to providing energy, the ergogenic properties of caffeine have been extensively studied and research has indicated that low-to moderate dosages of caffeine (2-3 mg per kg, about 160 – 238 mg for a 175 lb person) may be performance enhancing and fight off fatigueiv.
