Post-Workout Nutrition Guide

October 29th, 2008 · 1 Comment

After a strenuous workout session your body is craving for nutrients to restore everything that it was lost training, check so it is extremely important to eat well and take the right post-workout supplements.

Post-workout you need to take a fairly good amount of carbs(dextrose) together with a high and fast absorption protein, medical I suggest whey protein and if you want to spice things up a little add creatine monohydrate, one tea spoon should do the job.

post-workout protein shake

You could mix all the three supplements and create you own post-workout shake. Take 30g of your favourite whey protein add 50g of malt dextrose and a tea spoon of creatine monohydrate mix it with water or milk and viola, your home made post-workout shake.

But don’t rely only on your bodybuilding supplements, what you eat after training is also very important, go for a diet rich in proteins and carbs, more protein than carbs though. A good rule of thumbs is twice as much protein than carbs.

Grilled chicken breasts and grilled fish should be on the top of your post-workout menu, together off course with vegetables, leafs and food with carbs like rice, pasta and fruits.

Re-hydrating is also very important; a bad post-workout re-hydration can result in strength loss. Drink at least 2 litres of water post-workout.

This quick and simple guide should get you on the right tracks for an optimal post-workout nutrition.
