Happy Mother’s Day
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms! We continue our no excuses theme this week. No excuses, get your post-workout protein and foam rolling sessions this week.
THINGS TO PRACTICE:
1. Post Workout Protein. During your workouts, your muscles get broken down. Protein is critical to rebuilding the muscles and helping your body recover stronger. In the first 30 minutes after the workout, the body is most receptive to the uptake of that protein. Following the workout there are more glut4 receptors along the cell membrane which allows increased cellular uptake of carbohydrate and protein. If you miss the 30-minute window, the body is not as efficient at brining in the proper nutrients for cellular repair. For the best results, utilize a whey isolate or high quality pea or hemp protein.
2. Roll It. Along the same line of recovery, bust out your foam roller. Spend 3 sessiosn this week working on sore areas and any muscle adhesions. Don’t let sore muscles and imbalances lead to injury. Stay on top of your recovery this week!
