TORQ Recovery Plus+ is a Hot Cocoa drink containing Beta-Alanine, HMB and Sodium Phosphate, which has been designed for twice-daily use during periods of very intense training stress and during the race season. It also benefits power-based disciplines like Track Cycling, BMX and Downhill Mountain Biking
- HMB for Muscular Repair and Growth
- Beta-Alanine for Anaerobic Power
- Phosphate Salts for Aerobic Development
- High-Potassium, Antioxidant-Rich Cocoa
- Part of the TORQ Recovery System
TORQ Recovery Plus+ is a hot cocoa drink containing HMB, Beta-Alanine and Sodium Phosphate that is to be taken twice daily. It doesn’t have to be mixed hot, but it really does make a great tasting cup of cocoa, so we advise that you take your time and enjoy this product. If you’re in a rush, add 2 level scoops of the powder to 250ml of fresh cold water in your mixer bottle and give it a good shake. Sugar can be added to sweeten further if required.
TORQ Recovery Plus+ is designed to be taken continually during any high load training/racing period and is therefore ideal for use throughout the competitive season, or in the lead up to and during a training camp or cycling holiday. TORQ Recovery Plus+ can also be used as a peaking tool in the lead up to an important one-off event as a peaking tool. TORQ Recovery Plus+ can also deliver significant benefits to intermittent interval type activities/sports like track cycling, downhill mountain biking and team sports.
The properties of HMB, Beta-Alanine and Sodium Phosphate are discussed in detail under the Technical Information tab.
Essentially HMB has anabolic benefits, so helps with muscular repair and development, whilst Beta-Alanine assists with the development of top-end power and lactic acid tolerance. Sodium Phosphate helps with the development of aerobic power. It is the interplay between HMB and Beta-Alanine that makes this product so exciting however, because Beta-Alanine exploits top-end power, which in turn results in micro-tears in the muscle structure and a fatigue stimulus to the anaerobic energy systems. HMB, with it’s anabolic properties then works to rapidly knit this fatigued muscle tissue back together and this is the very essence of the ‘training effect’. Fatigue – Compensation – Supercompensation. Beta-Alanine drives a larger fatigue stimulus and HMB creates a larger and quicker supercompensation.
IMPORTANT: TORQ Recovery Plus+ is not intended to replace our regular TORQ Recovery Drink, it is to be used in conjunction with it*. Both TORQ Recovery Plus+ and TORQ Recovery Drink offer different benefits and to fully understand the interplay between the two, we strongly advise that you read our TORQ Recovery System page. The recovery process is much more complex than simply taking this product in isolation.
