The Importance of Quality Protein & Branch Chain Amino Acids Post Workout

Eating healthy on the go can be challenging. One of the things that helps me stay in shape is having a protein shake handy after every workout. What I do is simple. I pre-blend 2 scoops of my favorite whey protein supplement along with 1 or 2 tablespoons of my favorite branch chain and I put it in the freezer the night before. The following morning I grab it and throw it in my gym bag. It works wonderfully, because by the time I’m done training my protein is nice and chilled and my body is oh so ready for it! Having a quality branch chain and protein supplement immediately after every workout will prevent muscle break down, and aid in muscle growth and repair; and that is exactly what you want if you are trying to burn fat and keep muscle. We need healthy muscle so that we can burn fat. For more information on nutrition tips for busy athletes visit me here often!
