Wednesday I blogged about using my Whoop data to help me prioritize good recovery practices. Recovery is based on a set of specific practices that enable us to repair from yesterday's workout and prepare our body for tomorrow's.
Do you know what helps you recover? GOOD FOOD! It's #foodiefriday and here's a fantastic and EASY one pan recipe for hummus crusted chicken and veggies from Working Against Gravity.
We all know that calories are king and we need to prioritize protein. Did you know that women who are menopausal and post-menopausal need MORE protein because our hormones are no longer as active in muscle synthesis? Yep, it's true. The guidelines from the Whoop Women's Performance Collective is 2 g for every 1 kg of body weight. To calculate this divide your body weight (in pounds) by 2.2. Whatever that number is, 77kg for me, multiply by 2 and that's the DAILY protein goal. Mine is 155. what's yours? Share with us in the comments.
