I wanted to share one of my favorite shake recipes with you! This recipe is for all watermelon lovers! You knew how good watermelon is for you right? Adding it to your fuel is even better. If you are working out everyday , and need that workout shake right after, this may be your favorite. 

This shake incorporates whey protein , which we know helps with shedding body fat and held with muscle mass. I know many of you may be sick of drinking the same chocolate whey everyday, so to switch it up , try this. 

1 scoop vanilla whey protein

1 cup cubed watermelon

1/4 peeled cucumber

1/2 cup aloe water 

1 tablespoon lime juice 

Blend it all together for a tasty shake for your muscles. Watermelon is loaded with so many antioxidants and can help with your workouts. It has a high water content that will help with recovery. This is a water based shake which helps the body recover quicker with hydration. It’s amazingly tasty.

Are you stretching before your run or workout?? I hope so.. Lack of stretching can cause great damage to your muscles over time if not, and can stiffen the muscles, and can cause pain. We stretch to improve our flexibility. Flexibility is super important for a number of reasons.

– it improves muscle balance around your joints.

– it reduces your chances of injury when exercising, running, or playing sports.

-it increases your nutrient supply to the muscles and cartilage, which reduces soreness.

It is proven that 3-5 min of cardio is a recommended warmup for muscles. Anytime you head out for a workout , spend atleast 5 minutes stretching . Your muscles will be thankful!
