Subway sandwiches, Kellogg’s cereal, Speedo swimsuits and now its special post-workout drinks. Michael Phelps endorsements continue to grow. Phelps has just put his stamp of approval on PureSport, a kind of drink that packs a protein punch and a slow-energy release fuel that keeps you from sugar-crashing like so many other sports drinks do.
Phelps swears by them as a way to refuel before, during and after the five hours he clocks in the training pool. Each drink features a 2.67:1 Carb to Whey Protein ratio and comes in four flavors: grape, banana berry, lemon lime and fruit punch. Eight 16-ounce bottles cost about $25.
But Phelps isn’t the only PureSport enthusiast, fellow 2008 Olympians, gymnast Nastia Liukin and swimmers Aaron Peirsol, Ian Crocker and Brendan Hansen and have been training with PureSport Workout and Recovery nutritional performance sports drinks with protein as part of the nutritional preparations before the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
