Before I understood proper post workout nutrition I would have moments where I was afraid I wasn’t going to make it home.
You see while I’m working out, my body is doing a number of things:
1. My body begins to pull glycogen to use as energy.
2. My blood flow increases additional blood cells to my rapidly beating heart.
3. My body is working on releasing the heat that’s caused from all my systems working together while I exercise.
4. I create microtears in your muscles.
5. My brain perceives exercise as stress and releases endorphins to block feelings of fear or pain as my body is in “flight or fight” mode.
When I would finish an intense workout, my body was trashed, so to speak. My muscles would be tired, my energy levels were low, and I would feel tired. Without the proper post workout nutrition my heart rate had difficulty coming down, my body would shake, and I felt sick. There were times I was afraid I was not going to make it home.
I needed proper post workout nutrition that would:
1. Replenish Glycogen (energy stores)
2. Decrease protein breakdown (repair any damage)
3. Increase protein synthesis (increase muscle building)
That means I needed protein and carbohydrates. While I used to grab for a whole food option, it digested slowly, and I needed to consume an option that will give me the nutrients quickly.
That’s when I started utilizing the @1stphorm Phormula-1 and Ignition. Phormula-1 is a rapid assimilating, hydrolyzed whey protein isolate. That means it’s stripped of carbs and fats to be a fast digesting source of protein. Ignition is a pure dexanhydrous glucose. It is a fast digesting carb to spike your insulin, which will promote protein synthesis and repair muscle tissues.
This helps me:
-Produce less muscle soreness
-Increase ability to build muscle
-Improve immune function
-Improve bone mass
-Improve ability to utilize body fat
Which means I no longer experience the shakes, sickness, or uneasy feeling post workout 🙌🏻.
