    How do you recover from a grueling workout session?

    I always have a protein shake, how do you restore your lost energy after a super hard workout?

    After a great work out, like you, I often have a protein shake and trail mix bar of some sort (Clif Pb Pretzel is my favorite). Once I get home, I often times stretch, meditate or do yoga which brings me back to a place where I feel mentally balanced and at peace. After I finish, I take a shower and drink lots of water which replenish, hydrates and gives energy. Hope that helps!!

    You must stretch the muscles and tendons that you have impacted, drink plenty of water (hydrate to minimize lactic-acid pain) and perhaps walk or get involved in some low-impact activity (i.e. stationary bicycling) other than sitting. I like to walk my dogs after a work-out, stretch and hydrate. I am lucky because my better-half prepares protein and fruit-based shakes for me also...
