Are you regularly working out but not seeing any gains? You’re tired all the time, your body feels run down, you know you can do better?
Or to put it a different way, you are putting in all the effort but all you are getting for it, is sweat!
Perhaps the problem is that you may not be refuelling your body properly before and after your workouts.
In this blog post we will provide you with the checklist you need to follow to ensure optimum recovery and replenishment from exercising.
The Importance of Refuelling Before and After a Workout
We all know that exercising and moving our bodies daily in some form or another is an important part of living a healthy and active life.
However, when we stress our bodies through extreme exercise, we quickly use up our glutathione reserves. We have a full blog post here on glutathione but in a nutshell, it is known as the master antioxidant and it is essential that we have enough of it to fight off oxidative stress. If our stores of glutathione run low it can cause all sorts of health problems, including our capacity to benefit from and recover from exercise.
Equipping your body with the necessary nutritional support pre and post workout is key to ensuring that you not only get the most out of each session but also maintain your overall wellbeing.
The way we see it ... you haven’t fully completed your workout until you’ve refuelled.

2. Eat a Healthy Meal Post Workout
Following a healthy diet is essential for not only feeling your best everyday but assisting with replacing vital nutrients post workout. Did you know that your muscles are most prime for absorbing nutrients up to a few hours post working out?
If you have timed your workouts post breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you may only require a healthy snack post exercise session to continue replacing those key nutrients.
It’s important to note that what you can consider a ‘healthy diet’ may differ to the next person however what remains crucial is that it suits your needs and assists with supporting your overall health and wellbeing.
3. Stretching (and Resting) Post Workout
Making the time to stretch and/or foam roll post workout is another important element to help with muscle recovery. This is because it helps improve your range of motion and flexibility which both help to reduce the risk of muscle injury and support longevity with long term performance.
In addition to stretching, it’s important to also ensure you’re finding moments to rest your body throughout the week. By resting you’re giving your body the time to recover. We like to say it’s all about balance every day!
So, now that we covered off the importance of refuelling for your workouts and the checklist you need to ensure optimal recovery and replenishment, shop Continual-G here.
