You just finished a workout, and you should be proud of yourself for making time in your busy schedule to make yourself and your health a priority! For many of us, we finish our workout and go about our day. Did you know there are things you can do after working out to maximize your results? 


Take a Post-Workout Supplement

You may have heard of pre-workouts, but are you familiar with post-workout supplements? A post-workout is a supplement that aids in muscle recovery and muscle building after exercise. 

But why do you need a post-workout supplement? This can be summed up in one word: recovery. Intense training breaks down muscle tissue, and it must be built back up via muscle protein synthesis to help recovery. 

The ingredients in FitFormula’s post-workout, PostFormula, helps increase protein synthesis and start the repair process immediately after exercise. Post-workout supplements can help with increased energy after a workout and muscle growth because you’re giving your muscles the proper ingredients to repair, which in turn leads to recovery and muscle building. PostFormula also includes coconut water powder that will help you recover faster and rehydrate your body after tough workouts.

The recovery process is the most important process when it comes to training. A post-workout supplement, like PostFormula, will also help decrease muscle soreness the next day.  

Post-workout supplements are safe and do not contain any stimulants or harmful ingredients. 


Not All Post-Workouts Are Created Equal

When choosing a post-workout supplement that is best for you, some key ingredients to look for are BCAAs, Glutamine, Creatine, Beta Alanine, Betaine, and Taurine. 


Post-Workout Activities

In addition to taking a post-workout, there are other things you can do after you workout. Add these to your post-workout routine to maximize results:

  • Take time to stretch.
  • Use a foam roller for deep tissue massage.
  • Eat carbohydrates after or with your post-workout supplement. Your muscle’s carb stores are depleted after a workout as well as your blood sugar being low. Eating carbohydrates after a workout will help replenish your muscle’s carb stores. 

Post-Workout Routine

Enhancing your post-workout routine can help you get the results you want faster. Consider adding a post-workout supplement, like PostFormula, to your workout routine, as well as implementing the suggestions above.
