Post Workout Formula Overview
POST Workout Formula Overview
The POST-Workout formula is designed for the forty-five minute window after exercise and is perhaps the most crucial time for your body in regards to supplementation. In fact, research has shown that not utilizing nutrition after a workout leaves your body in worse shape than if you had never even exercised. Using proper nutrition repairs damaged muscles and replenishes muscle glycogen stores. Within this window muscle cells are in an anabolic state, but this state diminishes rapidly, and if proper nutrition is not taken muscles will become insulin resistant, thus slowing muscle recovery and growth potential.
In order to increase recovery and repair muscles effectively the body must synthesize protein, which is best triggered by glycogen replenishment. Many athletes make the mistake of taking protein-heavy supplements immediately after a workout, but this is simply ineffective. Without an insulin spike and glycogen replenishment, protein synthesis cannot occur, they are intertwined. In fact, the most important macronutrients to take immediately after a workout are carbohydrates. Numerous studies have shown that in order to receive the greatest recovery an athlete should take a 3:1 carbohydrate/protein ratio sports drink immediately after a workout. The Post-Workout formula is designed to be mixed with either water or a berry based juice and is to be taken immediately following your workout.
SSP Nutrition’s POST-Workout formula nutrients immediately scavenge free radicals, repair muscle cells and enhance growth potential during this critical and short lived “anabolic window”. POST is based on a proprietary blend of natural ingredients that replenish muscle cells with the most scientifically advanced blend of effective nutrients.
Protect / Replenish / Repair
♦ Hydrolyzed-Whey Protein for Instant Absorption
♦ 3:1 Glycogen Replenishment and Muscle Repair Complex
♦ Enhanced Fat Loss and Recuperation

The workout shouldn’t stop when the training ends. Experts conclusively agree that post-workout nutrients are the most important part of the day’s nutrition. Those missing this crucial step risk a muscle composition of a worse condition than prior to the workout. SSP’s POST-Workout formula helps you “Seize the Moment!”
POST Key Ingredients
Leucine - The pre-eminent amino acid which restarts the anabolic process, increases insulin levels to trigger greater protein absorption and shuts down catabolism.
Lextrose-Maltodextrin - Dextrose (fast burning sugar) and Maltodextrin (a slower burning carbohydrate) blend to further spike the insulin levels and immediately open the pathways for optimal protein absorption over a two hour period.
Whey Protein Hydrolisate - Provides instant protein absorption directly into the muscle cells exactly when they need it most. Each POST contains 6 grams of Whey Protein Hydrolisate which is the equivalent of approximately 30 grams of typical Whey Protein due to its efficiency in absorption.
Whey Protein Isolate - Provides a slower protein absorption into the muscles over the next two hours after the workout.
Creatine HCl– Creatine has been studied for over 30 years and has been proven by far to be the most effective supplement to increase endurance and strength while being safe. SSP uses Creatine HCl which minimizes any water retention so the athlete does not have any bloating effect.
Carnitine - A proprietary blend featuring Acetyl L-Carnitine (this super antioxidant helps supply the brain with energy by improving energetics in the cell’s energy generator) acting as both a fat burner and a triggering agent to keep the testosterone receptors sensitized and further enhancing the anabolic state.
Magnesium Glycl-Glutamine - Chelated (A form that is better absorbed by the body) form strategically delivers the Glutamine past the stomach and into the intestines for actual absorption. Studies conclusively show that any other form of Glutamine will not survive the harsh stomach environment and are simply a waste of energy and money.
Chromium Chelavite - Chelated form of Chromium acts as another transport agent, sensitizing the insulin receptors which mimics an insulin spike without a large dose of sugar based carbohydrates thus allowing for even greater protein absorption and muscle growth.
