Dietitian's Answer

Focus on ensuring all participants are hydrated before starting their workout. This will help ensure clients are able to perform and keep up levels of endurance throughout the workout.

•Pre-workout - focus on getting an adequate amount of quick digesting carbohydrates 30 minutes before the workout. This could be a piece of fruit, lara bar, a sports drink or a Blast. When building a Blast, focus on quick digesting, higher glycemic fruits. Here are some great pre-workout recipes I would suggest for your gym goers -

Make sure you use the Short cup for these Blasts, aiming for about 12-16 ounces per Blast, more than that close to a workout may be too much for the stomach to handle.

•Post workout - focus on replenishing lost stores of carbs and protein, finding a Blast with substantial foods and a higher calorie count is best. Focus on consuming the Blast 30 minutes following a workout, this does not replace a meal but is an additional way to get added nutrients after a hard workout. Here are some great recipes -

You can use the Tall cup for post-workout Blasts focusing on 16-24 ounce Blasts.
