Sweat with Compass: Full Body Workout 2
Welcome back to Sweat with Compass! We hope you enjoyed the workout last month and we are back for another this month. Previously, we talked about some pre-workout snacks you can consume, why it’s important and I hope that everyone managed to grab a bite before today’s workout.
Today, our Senior Nutritionist – Natalie will be sharing about post-workout snacks/meals. Post-workout snack/meals are also important as they help in muscle & bone repair and recovers your glycogen stores. The goals of post-workout snacks/meals are to rehydrate, replace carbohydrate stores, provide protein to aid in the repair of muscle cells and other tissues.
A post-workout snack should contain carbohydrates with about 15 – 20g of protein and consumed within the first 15 – 20 minutes to aid in recovery.
For the post-workout meal, it should contain both carbohydrate and protein and consumed within 2 – 3 hours after exercise as this supports muscle growth, muscle & bone repair, and recovery of glycogen stores. Some examples are baked potato with beans, baked salmon with sweet potato, egg with avocado on toast.
