Post workout nutrition has long been considered the most pivotal time to consume supplements and eat. When you stop and consider that most people train only 3 to 10 hours a week and the rest of our time is spend in the recovery phase it all makes sense. Workouts provide the necessary stimulus for change, but it's our time spent in recovery and rest where our body composition actually begins to change.
Poor post-workout nutrition leaves your body in a catabolic state where it is unable to repair muscles broken down during training and as such prevents them from growing stronger than they were before. To avoid further muscle breakdown, it's best to consume a source of easily digestible carbohydrates and high-quality protein powder post-workout. Preferably something low in fat because fat can slow digestion.
Whey protein, in particular, is best-consumed post-workout to fuel your muscle recovery. BCAA or amino shakes are also a spectacular way to begin to boost protein synthesis and reduce muscle breakdown. Glutamine is also a solid choice since it will keep you from getting ill and also aid in the recovery process. ProSupps is the obvious choice for post-workout supplements that leave you feeling fresh and ready to take on the world day after day.
