Mix two (2) heaping scoops with 10 to 12 ounces of cold water and shake well. Consume immediately following workout.
How PostWOD™ Works
PostWOD™ has a 1:1 carbohydrate-to-protein ratio that has been proven, when consumed during the ideal 30-minute post-workout window, to maximize recovery and muscle growth. Fast-acting carbohydrates replenish glycogen levels to restore energy and prepare the body for its next workout. High-quality, fast-absorption protein shuttles amino acids to repair existing muscle tissue and build new muscle. Creatine was added to increase Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) production for strength and force. Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) in a 4:1:1 ratio of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine turn on muscle protein synthesis (mTOR) and begin the rebuilding process. And last, but not least, a full-spectrum joint complex can decrease inflammation and promote connective tissue repair.
Building muscle is easy! It doesn’t happen while you work out; it happens when you feed your body the right ingredients at the right times post-training (during recovery), and DRIVEN™ has made it simple. Train hard and refuel with PostWOD™.*
