You've just finished your workout, but we all know that training is only one part of a healthy lifestyle. All of your efforts can easily be sabotaged if you make a mistake, especially immediately after training.
Do you have a post-workout routine that benefits your quest for a healthy body and mind? Let’s look at what you should do after a workout.
Things to do after training
1. REMEMBER TO DRINK
Many people are, without realizing it, dehydrated. Especially in warmer weather, must drink water constantly. About 30-35 ml per kg of body weight for every hour of physical activity is ideal. Always remember to drink water before, during and after training.
2. DON’T CONSUME TOO MANY CALORIES
Even a good exercise routine cannot overcome a poor diet. Only professional athletes can really afford to eat what they want, as they spend many hours a day training and have a fast metabolism. For everyone else, with a job and a normal life, what you eat after training is crucial to achieving your objectives. It is better to take in easily digestible proteins and carbohydrates, as well as a decent amount of "good" fats, in order to repair your muscles and replenish nutrients. An ideal post-workout meal is sweet potatoes and eggs or a banana smoothie with peanut butter (without protein preparation). Instead of giving in to the temptation to eat a hamburger and fries, try these two recipes.
