We get it. Knowing what to eat and when, can seem a bit confusing. Especially if you’re just getting started with a health and fitness goal. This blog will break down the principles of pre and post training nutrition so you can make the most of your sessions.
WHY IS PRE & POST WORKOUT NUTRITION IMPORTANT?
Let’s start with “why”. You might hear that you need to “fuel” your workouts, in the same way you need to put petrol in a car to keep it running. You can’t expect your car to run properly on an empty tank. Sure you might be able to get out a few km’s – but you’re not going to be able to get very far.
The same can be said for your body. Planning your food choices and being mindful of certain macronutrients will improve your performance at the gym, increase muscle growth, speed up recovery and even improve your mood after a workout.
