Yes. Exercise on shake days is the key to getting maximum results.
The whey protein shakes are an exceptionally healthy way to add more protein to
your diet. It’s a quality protein source that is absorbed and utilized efficiently by the
This is particularly important for athletes, bodybuilders, those 50 years or older, or people who need to gain
muscle mass and strength while losing fat.
When it comes to muscle gain and fat loss, protein is the king of nutrients. A
combination of exercise along with a healthy eating lifestyle work together to achieve
your health goals.
When should I drink my IsaLean Shake?
After a workout is the most obvious time to consume whey protein powder because
that’s when your muscles need it most. Drinking your IsaLean Shake within 30 minutes
of finishing your training session will initiate the recovery process by flooding your
bloodstream with amino acids, which are quickly shuttled into your muscle cells where
they can be laid down as new muscle tissue.
A lot of people wonder whether or not they should work out while on cleanse days. The
answer is, yes. In fact, exercise can kick start the detox process and can help your body (to) eliminate
additional toxins- BUT, the important thing is to choose your workouts carefully. We
wanted to make a little “dos and don’ts of exercising on a cleanse day– so here are
some suggestions to help you get the most out of your cleanse day work outs!
Dos and Don’ts
DO – Yoga
Yoga is a great way to loosen your muscles without too much high impact, cardiovascular stress.
DON’T – Muscle Building Workouts
You aren’t taking in a lot of protein while cleansing, so it’s usually best to stay away from muscle building exercises like cross fit and weight lifting.
DO – Brisk Walking
Try starting your morning with a glass of room temperature lemon water followed by a brisk, 20 minute walk. This will help jump start your digestive system and keep everything moving throughout the day.
DON’T – Long or High Impact Workouts
Remember that part of cleansing is resting. Try to stay away from extended workout sessions and workouts that induce a lot of cardiovascular stress such as sprinting.
DO – Swim!
Swimming is a low impact exercise so it’s easy on your joints, but it counts as both a cardiovascular and a strength training exercise. Swimming has also been shown to reduce stress and lower blood pressure.
DO – Tai Chi
Tai Chi is a great form of exercise to engage in during your cleanse days. Often referred to as “meditation in motion”, tai chi encourages strength and balance and could be the perfect way to help you cleanse your mind as well as your body!
