Ennis TriClub Baking Dept

 

Your post-exercise meal determines your energy level and recovery for upcoming workouts. During exercise, your body uses glycogen, which is energy stored in your muscles. Eating shortly afterward replenishes your glycogen, promoting proper recovery and lowering your risk for fatigue. It also lowers your risk for dehydration and low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia. So a little treat after training is allowed. 

 

If you think you have what it takes to join the ETC baking dept please bring along something after any session for approval :)
