Nutritional Advice

Best Pre-workout shakes

You can supplement protein into your regime pre-workout for many reasons – and a pre-workout shake is just one way that you can supplement. To supplement as a shake, protein powder is usually mixed with milk or water so that you can drink it in liquid form. In some cases, the powder can also be mixed with a high-sugar sports drink to provide an additional energy source along with protein.

Post-workout Meals

During exercise your energy levels decrease, and your glycogen stores rapidly deplete in your muscles, causing them to tire. It’s important to have a good post-workout meal to replenish the stores that have been used during your workout. A meal comprising of the right macronutrients can set your body up for optimum recovery.

Pre-workout Meals

Your pre-workout meals are almost as important as post-workout because they tend to serve the purpose of fuelling your workout. Your blood sugar levels should be high during your workout – failing to eat the right foods before your workout can lead to low blood sugar levels, which in turn could cause fatigue and light headedness.

What is Pre-workout

It’s a no brainer that your body requires energy to exercise to its maximum potential. Whether it is high intensity interval training or endurance training, your energy levels must be high to prevent your muscles prematurely feeling fatigue, or completely exhausted. Food and supplements before your workout, when chosen carefully, can help support your workout and delay the feeling of fatigue by boosting energy levels.
