Fuel your training with Gatorade’s new G Series Pro line—previously only available to top athletes. A half hour after you’ve polished off your routine, grab the Protein Recovery Shake ($4; or GNC stores); it will replenish your glycogen reserves and give you a wallop of protein to help your muscles recoup.
