While each of us have different dietary intakes and needs, it’s important to understand that food is fuel for our bodies. We need to be putting the right fuel into our body before working out to maximise our potential.
Overfilling often leads to feeling nauseated during training, which will reduce your performance ability. You should be looking at consuming carbohydrates and protein at least one hour before and after your workout.
Here are three pre-workout snacks that can assist you in getting the most out of your session:
Handful of Almonds
Not only are they a great source of protein and easy digest, there’s no prep time. They’re easy to take with you on the go aswell!
Banana’s hold a high amount of carbohydrates – but don’t let the stigma scare you away!
The combination of carbohydrates and protein will help you build muscle.
