Post exercise snacks

January 7, 2013

After a hard workout, you’ve probably used up all or a lot of your body’s stored carbohydrates. To replenish them quickly, so that your body can recover in time for your next workout, it’s important to enjoy a recovery snack within 30 minutes of your workout. Your ideal recovery snack should contain 1/2 gram of carbohydrates per pound of your body weight, and at least 10 grams of protein.

A few great recovery snacks:

  • P90X Results and Recovery Formula
  • 1 percent chocolate milk
  • Granola cereal
  • Fruit smoothie
