Protein is important for building and repairing muscles, particularly after a workout. Here are our top post exercise meals to help get the most out of your workout:
Red meat is very high in protein and zinc, both of which can help to support muscle growth. Traditional pepper steak often has a rich sauce so use a few spoonfuls of sour cream to help reduce your dairy intake. Also, replace the potatoes with sweet potato to increase your intake of low-glycemic carbs and release more energy.
Quick and simple, a chicken stir-fry is an excellent source of protein and other essential nutrients such as vitamin B. Although brown rice is generally a healthier option, white rice has a high glycemic index which helps replenish your muscles with glucose and aid repairs.
This meal is perfect for a post weight lifting session. Combining salmon, rice, sweet potatoes and vegetables; “The Lifter’s Lunch” offers omega-3 to aid muscle repairs and vitamins B6 and B12 for energy. According to Men’s Health Magazine,
“A study presented at the International Society of Sports Nutrition found a combination of 1-5g of creatine, 30-40g of protein, 50-100g of carbs and up to 30g of fat was the best mix of nutrients for creating muscle growth when eaten directly after a brawn-building workout. The salmon gives you the protein, creatine and fat, while the potato, rice and veggies take care of the refuelling carbs.”

Joshua, 28, holds the IBF and WBA belts, while New Zealander Parker is the WBO champion.

Parker is undefeated in his 24 professional fights, with 18 of those wins coming by a knockout.
Joshua became IBF heavyweight champion by defeating Charles Martin at London’s O2 Arena in April 2016.
The following April, he added the WBA belt by beating Wladimir Klitschkoin front of 90,000 fans at Wembley Stadium.
Whoever wins in March is certain to then face undefeated American Deontay Wilder, who holds the fourth belt in the heavyweight division. No boxer has held all four heavyweight belts simultaneously.
