Ok, it’s time for my promised “Top Secret” Pre-Workout Power Potion Recipe that will give you everything you need to turbo-charge your workouts while providing a ready source of amino acids to avoid muscle loss and begin the growth process.
Follow the directions on the next page and consume this mixture about 1-2 hours before your workout …
The “Muscle Nerd’s” Top Secret Pre-Workout Power Potion
Ingredient 1: 1.5 cups Skim Milk
Milk is probably one of the most overlooked supplements there is! It’s loaded with both fast-digesting (whey) and slow-digesting (casein) proteins for a steady supply of amino acids…and it’s been proven in research to be a powerful growth hormone releaser!
Ingredient 2: ½ Frozen “Slightly Green” Banana
Ripe bananas have more sugar content than bananas that are still slightly green and will result in more of a quick “sugar rush” instead of supplying long term energy to power through your workout. Grab a bunch of “slightly green” bananas at your local supermarket, peel them all, and place them in a plastic bag in your freezer to break up and add to your protein blender drinks as desired.
Ingredient 3: 2 Tbsp Natural Peanut Butter
“Natural” peanut butter ( NOT the commercial hydrogenated garbage!) is loaded with mono-unsaturated fats…perfect for helping you raise your body’s testosterone levels for increased muscle mass and rapid fat burning. Look for a product that ONLY lists ” Peanuts ” and ” Salt ” on the list of ingredients.
Ingredient 4: ½ Cup Raw Oat Bran or Uncooked Oatmeal
Raw oat bran, like oatmeal, is a complex carbohydrate that is ideal for supplying tons of sustained energy for your workouts… AND the rest of the day.
Its finer texture makes is a better option for blender drinks, but if you only have access to oatmeal, make sure you put the dry oatmeal alone in the blender first and give it a few seconds on “high” to break it up a bit more.
Ingredient 5: ½ Scoop Vanilla Whey Protein
In addition to the casein protein from the milk, whey protein will provide you with additional, ready-to-deliver amino acids that will provide your muscles with a “jump start” on the recovery process.
Vanilla flavored powder seems to go best with this drink but chocolate flavored is another great option!
Directions: Ok…this is pretty self-explanatory, but here goes…
Add the first 4 ingredients in the order listed to your Vitamix and blend on “High” for about 15 seconds. While it’s still blending, open the top and add the protein powder . Blend for another 5 seconds…stop… drink…wipe the “smoothie mustache” off your face…and enjoy your workout!
