Most all of us at the box went balls to the wall on Saturday – whether you did 13.1 or not! Way to go! However, now we’re all nursing the soreness of built-up lactic acid as our muscles build new fibers. Do you take care of yourself properly to ensure quick recovery? Hydrate, stretch, take in 20-40 grams of protein within an hour of completing your workout, take fish oil, and sleep. Sounds easier said than done, I know.
However, most of us have been at this “being an athlete” thing for awhile now, and have toyed around with multiple different approaches to post-wod protein consumption. Some of you choose to palm a chicken breast, some of you enjoy sampling and sharing protein powders, some of you consume Greek Yogurt homemade shakes, some of you grimace and secretly eat Big Macs. Whatever your habit, you probably have a decent sense of what works best for your body.
If you do, (and even if you don’t), here’s a company that allows you to build and create your very own protein powder: True Nutrition. They are affordable and reliable and the best part is that YOU are the nutritionist. Check them out and create your own concoction today. You will be glad you did, cause you’ll be needing the perfect recovery plan for the next 4 weeks until The Open concludes.
