TIPS FOR OUR JUNIORS FROM THEIR PRO TEAMMATES
Over the next few months, we will share some tips to think about that you can incorporate into your training, racing and recovery routines.
August tip from Shayna Powless. "I have been racing for many years and I absolutely love being able to share my knowledge of the sport with others."
My first tip is focused on recovery. Recovery is an essential part of maximizing performance and is just as important as the training itself! One thing that everyone should incorporate into their recovery routine is to drink a protein shake within 20 minutes after a workout. Whether it is an easy or hard workout, a protein shake gives your body the amino acids it needs to repair and rebuild muscle tissue. The 20-minute time window is important because you want to begin the recovery process as quickly as possible after exercising. I personally love to use the Clif Chocolate Recovery protein mix with either water or almond milk. If you are at home you can mix it up a bit and add raspberries or your favorite fruit!
