Post workout nutrition is important. No you wont shrivel away if you don't eat or drink anything right after your workout! Proper nutrition is necessary to make progress and build muscle though. Following a workout, carbohydrates are needed to replace glycogen (stored energy) in the body. Protein is needed to begin repairing muscle tissues. Simple sugars have been shown to best replenish carbohydrate stores and stimulate the release of insulin. Insulin and growth hormone released during and after a workout are the main hormones that assist in muscle growth. Protein/branch chain amino acids also stimulates protein synthesis. Protein synthesis is responsible for new muscle growth. Make it easy and consume an all in one post workout product like Core PWO!
