Did you know that most people who work their tails off day in and day out to get healthier and get in better shape do not optimize their results because they forget (or just don’t know) one vital step of the workout formula? Are you one of them? See, getting results to be healthier or to be in the best shape of your life is NOT just about exercise and nutrition. That is, obviously, a large part. It is the recovery phase that actually produces the biggest results and the ultimate gains (or weight losses). Sleep, rest, de-stressing, and post workout supplementation is crucial for maximizing your efforts in any given activity where your ultimate goal is weight-loss, muscle gain, improved endurance, or harmonious vitality and health. Do you know how many people I have worked with that look at me with dropped jaws when I ask them what their post-workout supplementation and nutrition plan is? It is like I spoke a foreign language. If you do not refuel the body properly (or strategically), how can you expect that it will be replenished and ready to perform optimally for your next activity. Think of your body like a car. If your car gets too low on oil, the substance vital for lubricating the engine and the overall operations of the car, then putting more oil in the oil tank will allow the car to run optimally and smoothly and get you to your destination. If you ignore the “check oil” light, then the car becomes sluggish and, if ignored long enough, the engine will most likely seize up, bringing your car to a dead stop. Your body is the same way. If it loses vital nutrients through sweat and energy exertion, it needs to be replenished so that your engine and main operating system can continue to hum along-IF you want results and to feel your best! In this blog, I am going to give you 5 smoothie ideas that will help you replenish and allow your body to truly benefit from the exercise and activity.
