Fitness and nutrition enthusiasts will tell you that the most important meal of the day is not breakfast, but the post-workout meal. In a very general way, I am in agreement. The body is absolutely primed for recovery and absorption of nutrients following an intense training session, probably more so than in the morning when most people eat breakfast. Though I place more emphasis on post-workout nutrition than pre-workout nutrition, what you consume before your workout can have a substantial impact on performance and recovery as well.
When I heard Vitacost® was launching a new sports nutrition line, I couldn’t have been more excited. From my experience with other Vitacost-brand products, I knew it would be top quality—and that it would be priced right. After trying several products, I can honestly say my hunches were right on. Whether you’re a woman or a man, a hardcore bodybuilder or someone just looking to get or stay fit, Vitacost® ARO™ products are a smart choice that you’re going to absolutely love.
