Post-WOD Nutrition Advice
I’ve been fielding lots of questions about post-workout nutrition and the Stronger, Faster, Healthier (SFH) protein options we carry in the Pro Shop. The bottom line is this: YOU NEED TO REPLENISH WHAT YOU BURN OFF IN A WORKOUT IMMEDIATELY AFTER THAT WORKOUT. While consuming a My Prep meal is perfect if you are looking for a pre-workout meal, but a clean protein supplement will reduce your soreness, speed recovery, and help make you stronger. Depending on which supplement you take, it can also aid in muscle gain. Here are some impressive whey protein stats: https://www.synergize.pk/shop/optimum-whey-protein-gold-standard-in-pakistan/
We carry three post-workout supplements in the Pro Shop, all from SFH: Pure Whey, Recovery and Fortified.
Pure Whey is your “budget” option just to get some protein back into your system after a workout.
The Recovery formula has protein as well as ribose, carnitine & Co-Q-10 for ATP restoration, taurine & creatine for energy generation, leucine, isoleucine & glutamine for muscle growth, and glucosamine & chondroitin for joint health… these are all added goodies to help your muscle recovery, aches & pains. Personally I notice better recovery, less soreness and just better overall strength when using Recovery after workouts.
Fortified is an option for those who wish to gain mass/muscle, and would be the one of the best exercises if you’re looking to boost your T. It has protein & specific amino acids meant to enhance growth hormone release and enhance muscle protein synthesis.
I personally use the Recovery for CrossFit. I’m currently using one scoop of Recovery & one scoop of Fortified, in preparation for my power lifting meet. That combo has helped me reduce soreness & heal injuries AND gain muscle. You can learn more from testosterone boosters at Clevescene.com, this will help you choose the appropriate one for you.
We sell single-serving samples as well as full-sized bags of SFH protein in the Pro Shop.
If you insist on doing your own thing & shopping elsewhere, I’m happy to help you read labels and decide on another clean protein product. I personally prefer SFH to the dozens (literally) of other protein formulas I’ve tried because it is an all-natural protein derived from grass-fed cattle. It doesn’t have any soy, artificial sweeteners or other added crap that many of the popular brands out there do have. As always, let us know if you have any other questions about post-workout recovery!
