Notes:

It’s really important to have a good source of carbohydrates and protein after exercising (within an hour of finishing is optimal) to help muscles rebuild and repair. Properly refueling can also help to amp up benefits of exercise even more, which for some can mean reduced muscle soreness, better definition and toning, and even enhanced weight loss. Go ahead and get your cardio and weight training in, then enjoy this post-workout smoothie recipe.
