IMO don't waste your money on gatorade. ***** expensive and is really just a placebo effect in my experience. Think about it, even in the NHL they have one or two out of 30 bottles gatorade, if it was really that good wouldn't every bottle be gatorade. Nothing in our lifetimes will ever replace water so drink as much of it as you can while we still have it so freely available.
While I think you're too young to understand his problem as your recovery is about twice as fast, I think you really gave a good advice here.
I found the hot shower/bath is really helping the muscles to recover and relax, but it really need to be more than 10 minutes, which is difficult in a changing room. +1 for water.
Also whey after exercize, casein before sleep and if you have the money BCAA supplementation will help recovery.
