The key to a perfect body is confidence, but most importantly, it’s nutrition as well!
Snacking before a workout gives you energy and gets you motivated to finish your workout without any distractions. It will also improve your performance and help you achieve your fitness goals.
Nutrition is key to success and good food will help your body recover from a hectic workout. Your body needs fuel before and after a workout. If it doesn’t get enough food, then the muscles will gradually detoriate and you’ll end up feeling weak and unmotivated the next day.
Feed your body with enough carbs, protein and fat and never stop hydrating yourself because our body needs water to function properly.
Drink water before, while and after workouts. You can also consume energy drinks to restore and retain the fluids.
Here are a few items you can consume right before your workout :-
- Fruit Smoothies
- Greek Yogurt
- Brown Bread/Gluten-Free toast with Avocado
- Boiled Eggs
- Handful of dried nuts
- Coconut water
- Peanut Butter toast with banana
- Dark Chocolate
- Black Coffee
- Protein Bar
It depends on how long you have for your workout. If you have an hour, then you can consume a tuna sandwich, or if you have two hours left, then choose something slightly heavy as in grilled chicken or sauted vegetables.
Never starve yourself no matter what.
Always remember, good food, right food is the only way you can get those chiseled abs and toned booty.
