Post Carbs - What you really need.
A study found that consuming high GI carbs after a workout was more effective at replenishing muscle glycogen levels than consuming low GI carbs. White rice, white bread, and sugary cereals are all great options if you are needing to replenish carbs rapidly (e.g at a competition where you have multiple bouts of high effort for the same muscle ). However, if you do traditional bodybuilding and only hit each bodypart two to three times a week this may not be necessary.
