How to Get Post-Workout Nutrition for Less Than Half the Price

If you buy ready-made workout supplements, you could be throwing away hundreds, of pounds every year. Why?

Because sports nutrition marketing is very clever and you’re naïve enough to believe it.

Let’s take a look at the price of a typical post-workout supplement; CNP Pro Recover.  A 1.28Kg tub of this costs £24.97 from Bodybuilding Warehouse

If you use this regularly (which you should be if you’ve actually decided to fork out for such a product), you’re going to go through it in no time. Here’s how to make a post-workout shake that’s as effective for much less.

 

1. Buy a reasonably priced Whey Protein powder

The Cheapest brands on the market are probably MyProtein or MaxiRAW.

You can get 5Kg of product for just under £60

 

 

2. Buy some Glucose Powder

500g of this costs £1.29 in Holland and Barret

 

 

3. Mix to two together using a 2:1 Carbohydrate to Protein Ratio

Combining these two products (the key ingredients for any post workout shake) will cost you around £72 for 5kg of post-workout goodness.

CNP Pro Recover costs around £100 for the same amount.

BSN Cellmass Costs Around £200 for the same amount

Fishy Delishy

Awesome Tuna Salad Recipie

I knocked this up the other night when I wanted a tasty, low-carb meal before bed. This would be an ideal choice for an evening when you haven’t hit the gym or when you’re trying to cut. Here’s the recipie

Fishy Delishy

  • 1 can of tuna in sunflower oil
  • 1 boiled egg
  • half an avocado
  • a handful of olives
  • a few cherry tomatoes
  • iceberg lettuce
  • rocket
  • a drizzle of olive oil
  • black pepper

 

 

 

Please note that if you are trying to cut, this does contain a fair bit of fat (albeit from good sources) so you want to substitute a couple of things. Use tuna in spring water in place of the sunflower oil version, omitt the egg yolk, and lose the extra oil. Leave the olives in though, they’re ace.

Enjoy!
