Here are the top recovery tactics from IFBB Pro Bikini Competitor Janet Laying.
1. Muscle musts
Amino acids are vital for rebuilding muscle after training. I take Muscle Martini Aminos Natural by GAT. They’re a more natural amino.
2. Protein power
In this form, protein is easily digested, for a quicker repair process. I take SUPERTEIN, which is fast acting and perfect on the go.
3. Feeling blue
Blueberries are nutrient rich and contain antioxidants that bind to free radicals released during working out.
4. Swimming with nutrients
Salmon or white fish is a vital source of protein; it contains healthy fats omega-3, anti-inflammatory properties and is rich in vitamin D, too.
5. Jet fuel
Jet Fuel SuperBurn is a powerful source of thermogenics, with 14 active ingredients that help keep me lean.
6. Sweet spuds
Sweet potatoes are slower digesting carbs that’ll keep your energy levels up, while getting a solid hit of vitamin A, C and beta-carotene.
The Amino acids in eggs are considered the most bio-available, making them the gold standard of protein, vitamins and minerals.
Avocadoes are loaded with all the antioxidants and healthy fats you need to optimize muscle repair while still reducing soreness.
9. Feeling chicken
Lean, basic chicken will always do the job of providing a great source of protein. Plus, there are so many ways to prepare it.
10. Stress buster
Turmeric reduces oxidative stress and has anti-infl amatory properties. Great for a post-workout smoothie.
11. Oats so easy
Oatmeal is a good source of dietary fiber, with benefits of lowering cholesterol. Add some to a shake.
12. All greek to me
Greek yogurt has twice as much protein as regular yogurt; it’s low in fat and contains healthy bacteria, too.
13. Going bananas
Bananas are full of potassium, magnesium and dietary fiber, and they’re a fast acting carb for replenishing glycogen stores that are lost during training.
