TUESDAY FITNESS TRIVIA


TUESDAY FITNESS TRIVIA 

True or False

Eating simple carbs after a tough strength training workout with whey isolate protein will increase protein synthesis resulting in a leaner, sculpted physique.

This is TRUE!

Proteins are large organic molecules that are made up of smaller units called amino acids. Linking of many amino acids in an orderly manner to form a particular protein is called protein synthesis.

Simple carbs spikes insulin which is used to shuffle the much needed amino acids & nutrients in protein into your hard worked muscles. Whey protein isolate is the purest, most easily digested and rapidly absorbed protein on the market.

Choose a healthy simple carb such as fresh or frozen berries or fruit. Fruit & berries contains the simple carbohydrate called fructose, which is made from one sugar molecule. Fructose is responsible for fruit's natural sweetness. Fruit comes in a variety of colors, with each color having different antioxidants and minerals to aid in repairing your muscles and increasing energy.  You can make a delicious post workout shake with frozen berries & whey isolate vanilla protein; it's like a treat and is very satisfying.

So don't forget to feed your muscles a highly nutritious post workout meal after each training session, and have fun creating the life & body of your dreams!

Happy Training!
