The ingredients in this shake will add zip to your sip and power to your workout. Yogurt can help prevent cramping during exercise. Plums deliver energy-boosting carbs plus Vitamin C to quell muscle soreness. Whey protein powder increases your chances of building more calorie-torching lean muscle because it contains the essential amino acid leucine, which is integral to muscle recovery, repair and growth. For best results drink this shake 45 minutes before an hour-long workout.
