Do you take protein after each workout?

Most of us know how helpful protein shakes can be in maintaining muscle growth and preventing muscle breakdown. 

Studies have shown that ingesting 20–40 grams of protein seems to maximize the body’s ability to recover after exercise. 

But do you have a routine or process for your post-workout nutrition?

 

If you don’t regularly drink your shake after your workouts, this is your week to start: 

 

Make a habit of packing your protein powder with your shaker bottle. 

Either 

  1.  Bring the whole tub in your gym bag
  2. Put 1-2 scoops of protein powder into the shaker before you go to class. 

 

Bottom line- don’t do a workout without your shake packed with you!

 

And have a “rule” to drink your shake before you leave the gym, so you won’t forget. 

New rule: Your shake is part of your workout routine. 

This is a game-changer if you are not already drinking your protein shake after every workout. 

 

Talk to your coaches about what protein powder they recommend or use themselves, or do research online to start this habit now. 

 

Next week we’ll talk about Glutamine.
