Tips to Maximize Recovery After a Workout

So you had an amazing workout…now what? Post workout recovery is just as important as the workout itself and sticking to the right habits can not only speed up recovery but also maximize gains. I have perfected a ritual that helps with my recovery time, so here are some tips to maximize recovery after a workout. 

Have Premier Protein Shakes after your workout for a post-workout boost.

Premier Protein’s shakes have 30g protein and they taste so good, it’s hard to believe they’re good for you! I’ve been drinking Premier Protein Cookies & Cream Shake or Premier Protein Peaches & Cream Shake after my workout and both have been a motivating treat! I know they’re low in sugar and high in protein, so it’s really a no-brainer to include it into my daily routine. I also love how Premier Protein can be enjoyed for breakfast or a snack or a post-workout treat. A tip here is to take it along and have it ready when you need it. I leave my Premium Protein treat in the fridge at work so I can grab it to go on my way to the gym.

Black Workout Outfit and My Workout Routine

Aside from being asked where my athletic wear comes from, (details on this black workout outfit below) one of the top questions I get asked is “What is your weekly workout routine like?” Honestly, I wish I had a consistent routine, but mine mainly ranges from group exercise classes to Kayla Itsines BBG to strength training to cardio days. I try to squeeze a little bit of each in throughout the week, because sticking to one thing leads to lots of boredom.

James and I have always been drawn to being outside and after we got Danni the pup, we try to hit the trails at least once a week. Most of the time, when we are doing outdoor activities, it’s hard to carry around a lot of gear. We typically leave everything in the car before we head out, so the big question is, what if something unexpected happened while we were out and about?

That’s where Road ID comes in to play…
