Make the most of the moments right after a training session with this easy post-training session fuel.
Your body uses the stored energy in your muscles to power through your workout or game, but after that workout, you need to replenish the nutrients lost by focusing on getting carbs and protein into your body. This gives your muscles the ability to replenish the energy lost and helps your tired muscles rebuild and repair with the available protein and amino acids. It's important to try and eat within an hour of completing an intense workout.
But what should you consume? To find out, we turned to Coach Ryan Sullivan to help put together the perfect post-training session fuel:
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 a banana
1/2 teaspoon of honey
2 rice cakes
Momentous protein shake
Spread 1 tablespoon of peanut butter on each rice cake
Cut up banana into thin slices and spread evenly on both cakes
Drizzle 1/2 teaspoon honey on top of each cake
Mix one serving (one scoop) protein powder with 12 FL OZ of cold water or milk (almond milk commonly used)
