Strawberry Dreamsicle Shakeology

I've gone and done it again. Combined two of my FAVORITE Beachbody products and the results was nothing short of YUM!

We all love our Shakeology - right? Have you tried the newest flavor - Strawberry? It's amazing on its own but I love to spice things up just a bit. If you want to try your own Strawberry Shakeology, click on the pic below!

Combine that ^^^ deliciousness with some of Beachbody's infamous Results and Recovery formula and - BAM - winner winner chicken dinner!

Never heard of Results and Recovery? Well, my friend, you are missing out. Not only does it taste like an orange dreamsicle, but it has helped reduce my soreness after intense workouts! I am now able to sit down after leg day - woo hoo! Yes, it still hurts a bit, but not like it used to!

Why such a change when drinking R&R (as the cool kids call it...)? That's in the science behind the product. Here is what the Beachbody website has to say about R&R:

Recover faster and see better results!
This great-tasting shake is specially designed to provide the precise nutrients you need to recover quickly after intense workouts. P90X® Results and Recovery Formula™ offers a unique mix of:
  • Dextrose–based formula for optimum glycogen replenishment*
  • A high Protein Efficiency Ratio (PER) blend to provide the critical building blocks for rapid muscle resynthesis*
  • Vitamins, including antioxidants, to help reduce muscle soreness and assist in repair and growth*
Studies1.2 show that with proper nutrition during the first hour following a workout you can increase your body's ability to recover by more than 100%. The key component to maximizing this "window of opportunity" is a formulation of approximately 4 parts carbohydrates to 1 part protein.

P90X Results and Recovery Formula is a state-of-the-art, great tasting, body-shaping cocktail that's guaranteed to take your results to the next level.
