The TORQ Recovery System was established so that we could recommend specific TORQ products and practices to our customers, depending on the amount of exercise they were doing. If exercise load is light, the use of specific recovery products may not be necessary at all, but as load increases, more intervention is required. The TORQ Recovery System consists of 4 phases and is cumulative, so essentially the more exercise you are doing, the more and greater variety of nutrition you will need to consume - and this includes real food (TORQ products are supplements, not dietary replacements). Below, we run through the 4 phases in brief and cover them in more detail further on.
Phase 1 should be your first intervention and simply involves diligently following the TORQ Fuelling System. Fuelling properly in the first place reduces muscle breakdown, maintains hydration and prevents the degradation of muscle and liver glycogen.
Phase 2 involves the use of TORQ Recovery Drink or TORQ Recovery Bar within 15 minutes of exercise completion to rehydrate the tissues of the body, restock muscle and liver glycogen, repair damaged muscle fibres and recharge cellular energy levels.
Phase 3 is all about hunting for rich carbohydrate and protein sources within your diet. You should be doing this anyway, but as exercise load increases, your need for high quality nutrients increases. TORQ Energy Organic is a pure unflavoured source of carbohydrate. Dubbed the 'invisible calorie', it represents the ideal way to increase the carbohydrate content of regular foods easily and because it has no flavour, you'll hardly know it's there. The TORQ Snaq range has also been developed to assist in supporting Phase 3 of the TORQ Recovery System too.
Phase 4 involves the use of our highly advanced TORQ Recovery Plus product. Containing Beta-Alanine, HMB and Sodium Phosphate, this product both supports the maintenance of high intensity/high load/quality training and the repair/adaptation processes required to progress. TORQ Recovery Plus really is the icing on the cake.
