I hope your day has gone great.
Yesterday was a brutal workout of intervals.
Here is what it was:
3 Rounds with one round at each station being done for 30 seconds, the second round done for 60 seconds and the last round done at 90 seconds.
- Rowing Machine
- Push Ups
I was gassed after it but while I was driving back home, I was looking forward to my rejuvenation drinks.
I got two of them that I look forward to after a workout.
One is a higher in carbs and one that is lower.
Here they are, give them a go:
Recipes for Post Workout Power Drinks
The following is a great drink at any time of day, but especially great after a workout. It’s a basic recipe with many other things that can be added to it or changed depending on your preference and taste desires.
What You Need:
With the fruit, that has a decent amount of carbs in it, which many people choose to limit. So the following drink has almost none at all.
Carb Free Choices
For anyone working to be fat fuel adapted this smoothie is great. With the high quality fat content its also very filling. As a breakfast shake this can often sustain people well beyond noon.
What You Need:
- 3 TB Coconut Oil
- 3 TB Chia Seeds
- 2 TB Cacao Powder
- 1 TB Pine Pollen
- 2 Scoops Protein Powder
- Drops of Chocolate Stevia (flavor to taste)
(Note that depending on how much water you add, especially with this second shake, it can become more of a pudding consistency rather than liquid.)
Oh ya, remember to put all the stuff into a blender and blend to your desired level.
There you go.
Have a great day.
