Rehydrate: Water! if doing aerobics you can drink something like gatorade . If doing strength and weights training , protein shake is good after workout.

NONE!: During a workout, your stress hormones will ramp you up enough if working at proper intensity. Energy drinks can cause overshoot on BP & heart rate, and heart rhythm problems. Stick to water and electrolyte drinks, especially as you approach 4-0....And beyond.
