On Monday, we talked about how the Better Body System can help you as an athlete. Today, we want to show you how Yoli can help you improve your workout recovery!
Why Recovery Matters
When you think about improving your physical fitness, you probably focus solely on the time you’ll spend working out. But recovery is just as important as the exercise itself!
That’s because exercise stresses the body and causes tiny tears in your muscle fibers. They don’t get stronger until they’ve healed, which occurs during your recovery. If you skip the crucial recovery period, you’re denying your body the opportunity to reap the full benefits of your exercise routine.
Hydration isn’t just important during exercise. Once you’ve completed your workout, you need to replenish the fluids you’ve lost working up a sweat. And you don’t just lose water when you sweat—you lose electrolytes. Electrolytes are important because they help maintain a healthy fluid balance within your body, so you need to replace them to best recover from your workout.
Drinking our lemon-lime sports beverage, Fun, is a great way to replenish your electrolytes and promote healthy hydration after you exercise. Fun promotes faster workout recovery, and because it’s sugar-free and low in calories, it can help you recover without impairing the progress you make along the way!*
Research suggests protein supplementation can enhance recovery and aid in growth and maintenance of lean muscle mass, so it can be an important part of your post-workout routine. To give your body the nutrients you need to get the most out of a workout, we recommend drinking YES after you exercise. It’s a great way to get the protein you’ll need for optimal workout recovery.*
YES contains 12 grams of high-quality whey protein. If you want a higher protein content, try adding an extra scoop of YES to your shake to bump up the amount of protein. You can also mix YES with dairy milk, which will increase the protein content and provide some complex carbohydrates to aid in your recovery.
Other Important Parts of Recovery
In addition to Fun and YES, it’s important to consider other aspects of recovery. Getting enough sleep at night, employing rest days, eating a well-balanced diet, and reducing stress levels can all help you recover from a workout so you can continue to perform at your best. Take good care of your physical health as a whole, and you’ll be able to recover from your workouts in a healthy, efficient way!
