December 29, 2014 – The New Year is right around the corner – and so are New Year’s resolutions! We’ve heard them all – visit 10 new cities, write a book, skydive! But our resolution is simple – get fit! Our Special Buys this week were made to work hard so you can work out harder. We’re also sharing our favorite pre and post workout snacks to arm your body with the right nutrients for the New Year!
The key to gearing up before your workout is the right combination of complex and simple carbohydrates and protein. This will ensure that the release of energy during your workout is slow and steady throughout your routine.
This PBB Bagel Mini recipe contains whole-wheat, protein and fruit – providing both types of carbs and as a bonus, is super easy to digest. Looking for something fruitier? Smoothies are also a great source of nutrients if built correctly. Stick to sliced fruit, nonfat yogurt and juice. We love this Carrot Pineapple Smoothie.
Made with stretch comfort and dry quick technology, these workout essentials will keep you comfortable through even the toughest of workouts. From shorts and thermal underwear to shirts and athletic jackets, this Crane performance clothing will help take your gym routine to the next level.
What you put in your body after your workout is important, too! When your body is in recovery, you should look for a nutrient dense dish. Lean protein will fill you up without making you feel bloated. Add vegetables to your dish for added nutrients and color. These Healthy Salmon Foil Packets are a great post workout solution.
