Portland Personal Trainer | What To Eat After Your Hard Workout?

If you are confused on what to eat after your hard workout, then here are some quick tips that will help you. The rule of thumb is that if you are participating in exercise that lasts longer than one hour, then you need to start re-supplying your body's carbohydrates. This can either be in the form of a liquid or with food that will digest easily in your digestive tract. If you are sweating a lot during your workout, especially with training like HIIT, you are going to want to ingest a recover drink. You can buy these at your local nutrition store or online. These are great because they have the correct rations of proteins and carbohydrates that your body is going to need after a challenging workout. I love to eat a cheese stick or a banana after a great workout. It is not a ton of calories, which is what we want, but it gives my body some immediate nutrients to aid in muscle recovery.The Art of Personal Training by Kisar Dhillon107 SE Washington StreetSuite 137Portland, Oregon 97214(503) 953-0241
