Three things you need to eat after a workout

1. Protein 

As you may have noticed in many of the articles on the site, we whey protein after a workout is just mandatory. The reason for this is that it provides the necessary amino acids that you need for recovery after training.

During exercise we fall into a catabolic state, which means that our muscles are broken. Although this sounds like a bad thing, but it is not. This is a mandatory process can then muscles then become stronger and grow.

There are many products which are designed to deal with a catabolic process, but nothing can be compared with the whey protein. Whether you want muscle size or just shape them better, he is a fantastic source of amino

acids and is required for men and for women.  The market has a variety of quality brands 
that offer whey protein, the choice is yours.

2.Fruits

Since we are using sugar as the main source of fuel for our muscles after workout it is in deficit, and this is not good if you want muscle growth. Many studies have shown that the problem is that the muscles are not able to recover and store this sugar as energy for your next workout.

In other words, your muscles tested sugar starvation especially in the hours after exercise. If you do not provide this sugar, they will not be able to recover and be sufficiently robust for the next workout.

Great idea would be to mix the fruit with your whey protein - banana, bluebe
rries, berries, etc.

3.Omega 3 or fish as a food supplement

We hope that you know the benefits of Omega 3 since we wrote about it. It is best if you have time to prepare fish for after a workout, if not, Omega 3 supplementation is an excellent choice.

Eating fish or taking omega-3 will reduce muscle inflammation and muscle pain in general, but will also recover - quick.
