Pre or Post Workout Shake

Need some fuel before you hit up the gym? Research has shown that consuming protein pre-workout can improve athletic performance & increase muscle protein synthesis (when protein is produced to repair muscle damage caused by intense exercise). By sipping on a shake when your stomach rumbles, you’ll get the energy and protein you need, without anything sitting heavy in your stomach as you rush into the gym. Because no one wants to be burping up their lunch during an intense set of burpees! Finding the time to squeeze in a workout can be tough enough, let alone finding time to pre-prepare a protein-based meal or snack beforehand and letting it digest!

Likewise, a high-quality source of protein is also key post-workout. When you exercise, you’re making small tears in your muscle fibres and, as mentioned, you need protein for muscle growth and repair! So, by grabbing a protein shake within about 30 minutes of a tough session, you’ll decrease muscle breakdown, increase lean muscle growth and enhance your recovery – do you really need any other reasons not to skip that refuel?

How to: Both pre and post-workout, simply mix 2 scoops of your favourite Free Soul blend with water and shake it up! Why mix with water? This is quickest for your body to digest – meaning that protein hit will reach your muscles fast, leaving you to reap the rewards of all your hard work!
