Developing An Appropriate Post-Workout Routine

Developing An Appropriate Post-Workout Routine

Alright...you've gone into the gym and crushed your sets like a true monster. Now, the question is, what's next on the docket? Well, the day is just beginning. Now comes mastery of the post-workout regimen to further turn your body into a full on, fat-burning Alpha machine.

Some Extra Cardio

Your body burns more fat after a workout, so use science to your advantage instead of fearing it, and get 10-15 minutes of extra cardio in.


Steamroom/Sauna

You'll want to decompress a bit after working your muscles to exhaustion, and the best way to do this is by taking a few minutes in a hot environment to work up a good sweat, stretch a bit, meditate, and loosen the body up.



The primary difference between the two is in the type of heat that they provide. A sauna uses dry heat, usually from hot rocks or a closed stove. Steam rooms are heated by a generator filled with boiling water.

Saunas can go up to hotter temperatures, but don't provide any extra humidity. Either way, both provide great health benefits that include peace of mind, improved circulation, clearer skin, decongestant effects, and better range of motion.

Post-Workout Nutrition

You have to refuel like an animal after a good workout, and the best way to do that is with supplements and a quality meal. The Mr Alpha "Recover" formula has all the necessary compounds to take full advantage of a principal called "the thermic effect" which burns the most calories immediately following any fitness activity.

Your post-workout meal should be mostly protein and carbohydrates. The reason for this is protein helps decrease muscle breakdown and increase muscle protein synthesis. Carbohydrate helps restore your glycogen levels.



 
Stay in the Zone All Day



Once you've refreshed a bit, get out on the playing field and use your finely-tuned muscles to set some records.
