Ahealthy pre and post work­out rou­tine is es­sen­tial for fu­el­ing your work­out. Here is what you need to keep in mind while fol­low­ing a pre and a post work­out rou­tine. What to eat be­fore

hit­ting the gym: What you eat be­fore a work­out de­pends on your own body and how you digest things. It’s very per­sonal, you have to gauge what works best for you. For some, liq­uid is great, for ex­am­ple a smoothie, but for oth­ers this will be jig­gling around in their stom­ach! It also de­pends on your work­out, for ex­am­ple weights ver­sus run­ning. Run­ning will only make some­thing liq­uid jig­gle more! So try out dif­fer­ent things and see what works for you. Also a caf­feine hit is great to have be­fore a work­out to get you ready for it and in­crease men­tal alert­ness. How to re­fuel af­ter a work­out: What­ever you choose it has to en­hance your phys­i­cal rou­tine and nour­ish you with good nutri­ents. A com­bi­na­tion of pro­tein, fat to help you feel full and carb to fuel the body is per­fect af­ter a work­out.
