Post-Workout Protein: Timing Matters
About a year ago, I started realizing that I was feeling super drained after filming my workout sessions. It was affecting my personal life too because I wasn’t really playing with the kids. At first, I thought it was because I was filming multiple workouts, but then I really paid attention to what was going on
Ever felt exhausted after a workout and feel like all you can do is lay on the couch?
I decided to do something about it. I started taking protein right after my filming sessions.
After just a few days, I noticed a difference - I wasn't feeling as exhausted anymore and could actually spend more time playing with my kids even after a long day.
Eating protein after your workout doesn't just help with fatigue, but there's a ton of other benefits.
5 benefits of eating protein after your workout:
Rebuild and repair your muscle tissues
Boost your metabolism
Supports weight loss
When's the best time for protein after a workout?
-For resistance training, aim to get it in as close to your workout as possible.
-For lighter cardio, try to eat within the hour.
Post-workout protein meal ideas:
Chicken with sauteed veggies
Egg and veggie skillet
Salmon and sweet potato
Try to consume as much of your protein through your food. If you don't have enough time or struggle to get enough protein, protein shakes are a great supplement.
