Revamp Your Workout Routine With An Electrolyte-Rich Green Juice

Last updated on

Pre-Workout Drink For Energy


Drinking a nice glass of green juice floods your system with so many nutrients and enzymes that help boost your energy for a good workout.

The enzymes help to dilate blood vessels and improve your blood flow, carrying nutrients and oxygen to every part of the body for an effortless and extended physical workout.

Make green juices your regular pre-workout drink to get the most out of their BENEFITS:

  • Increases blood count for better performance
  • Helps improve respiratory function for better endurance training
  • Neutralizes oxidative stress induced by intensive exercise
  • Reduces inflammation, repairs cellular damages occurring from physical stress
  • And of course green juices have an endless list of health benefits!

 

Suggested Recipe:

(Drink this just before you leave the house to go to the gym. It would kick in within half an hour)

  • 2 green apples
  • 8 ribs of celery
  • 8-10 leaves of kale OR a bunch of spinach
  • a bunch of cilantro
  • 1/4 lemon
  • thumb-sized ginger (optional)
  • A few leaves of mint

 

Post-Workout Drink

So you had a great workout. You perspire and feel good afterwards. You might have strained one or two muscles. A little strenuous exercise may even cause you some oxidative stress. All’s good, you have all your nutrition plan covered.

Drink plenty of water to rehydrate yourself throughout your workout. But, now you need to replenish lost electrolytes and repair all those strained muscles to encourage quick healing.

Prepare this juice when you make your pre-workout glass of juice, bottle and refrigerate. After a good workout, it is very unlikely that you would want to set up the juicer to make another glass of drink!

 

Suggested Recipe:

This combo helps to rehydrate and replenish lost electrolytes, is high in anti-oxidants to neutralize free radicals brought on by physical stress, and has natural sodium that repairs muscles and prevents cramps. And it tastes so good!

  • ¼ pineapple
  • 6-8 ribs of celery
  • 1 fennel
  • 1 cucumber
  • a handful of mint leaves
  • 1-inch ginger root

  1. I decided to try this recipe against my better judgement. i usually cannot stand the taste of tomato, especially if it’s cold. but i thought it’d be masked by the taste of the other ingredients. i was wrong. the tomato was the strongest flavor. no matter how i kept telling myself that beauty is pain, i couldn’t choke it down. so long story short. if you dont like tomato, dont try the post workout recipe.
