➡️ Do you get sore after a hard run or workout❓
Being sore is okay, but it SHOULDN’T PREVENT you from pushing your hardest in tomorrow’s run/workout. If you are too sore, you AREN’T recovering right!
Not only do you need to get adequate rest (see my post from yesterday) and stretch and foam roll, but you also need to ⛽ REFUEL ⛽ your body after exercise! DON’T wait 1, 2, 3 hours until you eat.
➡️ But what do you refuel with❓
💥 PROTEIN FIRST! 💥
We always hear the ratio 3g carbohydrates to 1g protein. BUT females need protein FIRST and FAST. Get that in IMMEDIATELY and then have a post workout meal with carbs and protein 1-2 hours after your workout.
Today was my favorite LEG DAY workout followed by a 10 mile easy run with friends. I LOVE leg day and I lift extremely heavy. HOWEVER, I am RARELY sore because I refuel my body IMMEDIATELY with my postworkout shake.
It’s plant-based and 100% natural! It uses fast-, intermediate-, and slow-release proteins, BCAAs, a small amount of carbohydrates, and a powerful pomegranate extract that work together to:
✅ Speed muscle RECOVERY
✅ Combat exercise-induced muscle SORENESS
✅ Promote lean-muscle SYNTHESIS
✅ Improve muscle STRENGTH recovery
Now don’t get me wrong – I LOVE the feeling of being sore because it lets me know that I worked hard, BUT I want to be able to sit down and walk up the stairs tomorrow!
This 🍫 CHOCOLATE 🍫 goodness allows me to PUSH HARD DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY! And it has helped me tone and build significant lean muscle over the last 1.5 years!
This morning I blended it with frozen plantain, frozen banana, cacao nibs, ice, a little coffee, and water!
💥 REFUEL YOUR BODY! It is so so SO important to our training, performance, and recovery! 💥
