Time for Glycogen Replenishment?


#1

So how long does it take for your body to restore depleted glyocogen after an intense workout? Normally I just workout every other day for this very reason just to be safe because I want to have the biggest bang for my buck while working out.

Someone with better knowledge, correct me if I’m wrong, but I think your body begins replenishing glycogen as soon as you get some carbs in your system, like in a delicious post-workout drink.
