Replenishing your body's energy stores through balanced nutrition should be the first priority after your workout as timing is everything. Through this you will recover quicker and increase your metabolism-boosting muscle if you consume a snack within 15-45 minutes post workout to ensure your body can restore its energy levels. The best bit is that, instead of storing calories as fat, your body will be replenishing energy stores and repairing muscle, thus making you grow stronger and increase your lean muscle mass.

Fitness Rush Tip

Keep a snack or nutritious shake with you, so you're ready to consume it shortly after training. Fast acting carbs such as white starchy foods will help replenish your glycogen stores a lot quicker than low gi foods such as wholemeal food!
