Leg day! Autumn’s favorite day of the week.
You’ve got 45 minutes of leg work with dumbbells, and you’re going to feel it. But it’s the first week, and the first time you’re doing this workout, so make sure you’re paying attention to your form. Don’t feel you have to go really heavy now. Choose your weights carefully, be aware of and listen to your body, and don’t overdo it. You still have another workout to do tomorrow!
Speaking of tomorrow’s workout, now’s the perfect time to talk about Beachbody Performance Recover and Recharge. These are two supplements that can really help with exercise-induced muscle soreness and recovery.
Beachbody Performance Recover is what you drink right after your workout to help replenish your muscles and reduce exercise-induced soreness. It has 20 grams of protein, including branched-chain amino acids to help promote muscle growth, and pomegranate extract, which has been shown to promote muscle recovery.
Beachbody Performance Recharge is what you drink at night before bed to help reduce delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). With 20 grams of slow-release protein and tart cherry extract to promote overnight recovery, it helps you wake up ready to crush your next workout. And it’s like having a little dessert before bed!
Have you used either of these supplements? What difference have you noticed?
