The importance of post workout nutrition

Aug 15, 2023 · lifestyle · Nutrition

Here at MAGIC, we're passionate about creating healthy, sustainable habits to achieve our fitness goals. Working out is one part of that, but post workout nutrition is just as important as the workout itself. Here's why:

  1. Proper post-workout nutrition can help alleviate muscle soreness and stiffness, as certain nutrients found in fruits, vegetables and Omega-3 fatty acids can reduce inflammation and muscle damage.

  2. Intense exercise can temporarily suppress the immune system, but by ensuring you’re refuelling properly, you can help to support immune function and aid recovery.

  3. Consistently providing the body with appropriate post-workout nutrition helps optimise recovery, reduce fatigue, and enhance overall performance in subsequent training sessions.

Ensure your next post-workout meal contains a balanced mix of carbs, proteins, and fats for optimal workout results. Need more tips? Explore our MAGIC trainer masterclasses, featuring nutrition advice from the world’s best athletes.
