Types of Sports Drinks

Considering the various types of sports drinks out there is a great way to help make sure you are meeting your hydration needs.

If you are involved in long endurance sessions, you'll likely be looking for one of the high energy types of sports drinks that are currently out on the market. Look for a isotonic form to use while training and then a hypertonic form to use after while you are recovering.

If you are looking for a lower calorie version of the types of sports drinks, then consider using a hypotonic form since this will have a lower carbohydrate count.


A hypertonic sports beverage is most suited to those who are looking for a post-workout replacement product aimed at achieving maximal muscle glycogen recovery since it has the highest quantity of carbohydrates.
