  • Replenishing glycogen stores. Think carbs!
  • Repairing muscles. Protein is made up of amino acids (building blocks for muscles). Consuming protein post workout helps bodies repair.
  • Hydrating for electrolyte balance. Micronutrients lost through sweat are potassium, sodium, calcium, chloride, and magnesium. We need to replace water and nutrients.
  • Decreasing fatigue and risk of injury.
  • Maximizing physical gains from each session for overall improvement.
