Protein and Enhanced Workout Recovery: The Connection

January 17, 2018

workout recoveryYou may not know this, but your workout is nothing without a proper workout recovery. Sure, you can get your heart rate up and burn some calories, but if you’re planning for workout recovery, you’re not going to get all of the benefits of building the lean muscle mass you really want to see. The moment your workout ends, your body can begin growing those muscles. When you workout, you’re actually creating microtears in your muscles. Those tiny little tears repair themselves and help your muscles become stronger than ever before, but that can’t happen if you don’t put the right stuff into your body, and a good post-workout recovery routine can help you do just that.

Adding Protein

So, what does a good post-workout recovery session looks like? Sleep is a big part of it. A massage can help, too. The most important part of it, though, is what you put into your body, and a big part of that has to be the right amount of protein. Wondering why? Protein can do a number of things for your muscles. When you workout, you deplete the energy that is currently stored in your body. Protein helps to replenish that storage. More than that, though, protein helps to repair all of those tiny little muscle tears that will build into super strong muscles as you move forward. Because recovery is a continuous process, you’ll want to consume more protein at your next meal as well.

Getting the Protein Your Body Needs

To get the level of protein your body needs, which is about 1.2 to 1.6 grams per kilogram of your body weight, there are several things you can do. Try our OvoPure Natural Protein Shake after your workout, then incorporate some of our 100% liquid egg whites into your next meal. It’s the perfect way to get the protein you need in its purest form.
