Key Nutritional Points To Remember Post Workout
- Drinking at least 500 mls of water
- Eating post workout is one of the most important things you can do after you have exercised, and here is why…Soon as you have finished your workout, with your personal trainer, or group fitness class it prime time for your muscles to build and to replenish your energy stores. The more muscle you have, the more calories your body will burn, even when you are resting. This should help your weight loss efforts. Think about having my post workout Healthy Breakfast Smoothie.
