POST-WORKOUT

Post-workout nutrition is the meal eaten after working out.

Conventional suggests eating a mixed meal of protein and carbohydrates within 2 hours but preferably within 30 -45 minutes of finishing your workout.

This post-workout meal is important for helping your body recover and repair. Eating a post-workout meal will help with the following;

  • The reduction of muscle fatigue and soreness

  • Replenish muscle glycogen (stored energy) that was used in your workout

  • Increase muscle protein synthesis and reduce the muscle protein breakdown caused by exercise
