6 Protein Shake Recipes for Your Sweet Tooth

By Kate Horney

Your first meal after your workout (often referred to as the PWO, or post workout, meal) is incredibly important for refueling your body and helping you burn fat and build muscle. Make the most of the PWO period by giving your muscles all they need to rebuild bigger and stronger.

 

Make it a goal this week to try to get 1/4th of your lean body weight in grams of protein after your workout!
