Nutrition on Speed: 5 Essential Juice Recipes for Fit Guys

How can juicing boost your workout performance? Here, five fruit and vegetable juice recipes built to increase energy and speed up muscle recovery.

Most men in the U.S. do not get the 400 mg of magnesium that’s recommended daily—yet the mineral is charged with activating key enzymes and massively contributing to energy production (who couldn’t use more of that?). Plus magnesium keeps muscle and nerve function strong, steadying heart rhythm, maintaining bone health and boosting the immune system. And according to the Linus Pauling Institute, magnesium is also required for several steps during protein synthesis. Want to pack in more of the mineral and reap these benefits? This juice recipe makes the most of green leafy veggies, which are rich sources.

Make It: Juice 1 handful of parsley (tip: wrap in green leaves before pushing through juicer slowly); 3-4 leaves of chard or collards; 3-4 carrots, scrubbed well with tops removed and ends trimmed; 2 ribs celery with leaves; ½ small beet with leaves; and 1 organic lemon with skin.
