Recovering after workouts is the key to optimizing strength and performance.

Recovering after workouts is the key to optimizing strength and performance.

The rules of recovery are actually pretty simple. Give your body back what it lost during training…..

  1. Energy – from carbs
  2. Amino acids – for muscles
  3. Fluid + Electrolytes – to replace sweat losses
  4. Antioxidants – to fight inflammation

The TIMING of this intake is also vital to good results so to help make recovery happen in a timely fashion I created this easy chart. Choose one food or beverage from each category and build your recovery meal or snack.

A go-to recovery breakfast is eggs with sweet potato and spinach + lotsa fluids. What’s your favorite recovery food?
