After we exercise our bodies are in an accelerated state to absorb nutrients. If we don’t eat within 30-60mins post exercise you need more kJ/calories to achieve the same nutrient intake. Not good if your goal is fat loss and muscle maintenance. My go to is plain Greek yoghurt, handful of nuts, berries and 1/2 whey protein scoop 🥜🥛

The banded good morning is a great warm up exercise that you can use to prime the posterior chain before an intensive lower body session.
○ Hook the band under the arches of your feet and on top of your traps, hold the band on either side with arms at 90 degrees for stability.
○ With a slight bend of the knees create tension through your glutes and hamstrings and hinge at the hips keeping your torso in a neutral position.
○ Just before you reach the position where you can no longer maintain a neutral spine, stand back upright, using your glutes to bring your hips through.
** To add an extra challenge to this, place a miniband just above your knees, grip the ground with your feet and fight to keep your knees out, to place further emphasis on hip musculature.
Thanks to @lukebienstock for demonstrating!
