Pre- and Postworkout Smoothies

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

When you’re working out, it’s important to give your body the fuel it needs—both before and after your workout. If you’re planning to do any cardiovascular activity, try drinking a carbohydrate-rich smoothie 30 minutes to 2 hours before the activity. After you finish exercising, eat again to refuel and help your muscles repair. A postworkout smoothie should include carbohydrates along with a protein punch, which can increase muscle synthesis. Here are a few pre- and postworkout smoothies to make your workout more effective.
