Post Exercise Smoothie 1

One of the keys to post-training recovery is getting the right foods into your body that it can use. Dark berries have been shown to help reduce delay-onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Additionally, omega-3s and dark green vegetables round out the goodness that supports muscle recovery and training adaptations. 

This smoothie brings in all of these nutrients in a delicious & simple smoothie to help replenish energy, support tissue healing, and get you ready for tomorrow's session.
