3 Post-Workout Protein Smoothies from a Dietitian

To keep himself and his clients motivated, registered dietitian and certified personal trainer Rachael DeVaux likes to switch things up at the gym with circuit training.

Her current rotation? The tape jumping squats, weighted deadlifts, reverse lunges, high knees and finish with a high plank. If you want to try it at home, do each movement for 40 seconds with 20 seconds of rest in between. Repeat the circuit three times.

After working out, she recommends refueling with protein within 90 minutes of your workout. Post-workout smoothies are her go-tos – they’re a quick and convenient way to get a combination of nutrients (complex carbohydrates, fiber, healthy fats and quality protein) that can help rebuild your muscles. (You can find more of her recipes in Rachael’s good eatsher debut cookbook.) Along with a protein smoothie for recovery, she suggests foam rolling, stretching, and drinking plenty of water.
