Interesting but that is an old study. Replacing glycogen is only important if you plan on another workout later the same day. If you're not, it likely not a good idea.

No, it will get replaced over the course of the day anyway. Alan Aragon dis a good analysis recently. Here's a dummary: http://amigoacid.com/nutrition/nutrient ... nfeld.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
