Training for a Tough Mudder is no walk in the park. You’re going to push the limits of muscular endurance, strength and physical stamina with each and every training session. For that reason you need to pack your Tough Mudder Meal plan with carbohydrate and protein rich post-workout foods that will maximize your training and recovery time. This recipe is going to be the perfect combination for you.

If you haven’t checked it out already, here’s our latest post featuring The Ultimate Tough Mudder Meal Plan that will prepare you for your very fist event.

What’s so great about this fettuccine and shrimp combination post workout? Well, other than the massive amounts of flavor in this recipe… you’re going to consume anywhere between 60-100 carbohydrates that will fill your depleted glycogen stores from your workout.

This will aid in faster recovery for more effective strength gains and no missing energy for tomorrow’s brutal workout you have planned.

And of course, shrimp is one of the leanest protein sources you can consume and it’s packed with a complete amino acid profile. Between the fettuccine and the shrimp, that’s double the recovery power for your post-workout Tough Mudder meal.

Here it is, fast and easy.
