What Should You Drink After A Workout?

Staying hydrated after you exercise is super important!

Here are 3 of the best post-workout refreshments!

1. Commercial electrolyte drinks

A 12-ounce serving provides 21 grams of sugar (over 5 tsps). Excess sugar intake is not needed for the casual exerciser. These drinks are appropriate for long bouts of high intensity exercise where additional fuel is needed.

2. Coconut water

 This potassium rich drink provides electrolytes without added sugars. It’s low sodium content prevents it from being an ideal electrolyte replacement for endurance athletes.

3. Water

For exercise lasting one hour or less, this is the best choice for hydration.
