Pre workout meals are never a necessity if you have the mental ability to carry out the routine without its requirement. Obviously when I say this in general I is writing for an individual who does a healthy hour’s workout daily not the one who does a 90.
Today’s article comes out from a real life incident that happened an hour ago. I am now a constant to gym and workout and have shed Kilos in the year, exact number if you would ask 12+ when I still follow a Desi Punjabi diet of “Pinni” and “Milk” in breakfast. Not to staggering a figure but still a good number I would say given the fact people and posters day 15 kilos in 3 months and all. My Gym trainer today recommended me a diet which he eats and a proper pre and post workout meal. The same he has recommended to many, I am no six packs but a good physique I would say. I would like to share my experience with you in terms of Pre and Post workout Meals.
Pre workout meals are never a necessity if you have the mental ability to carry out the routine without its requirement. Obviously when I say this in general I is writing for an individual who does a healthy hour’s workout daily not the one who does a 90 minute cycle followed by cardio and then the weight training. You need to understand is the pre-workout meal a necessity or are you just forcing you with it from the glitters of your trainers abs. One needs to understand the person from whom the advise in coming. I workout for an hour daily then go back to my nine to six corporate life followed by evenings and then the day ends. Meal culture has originated from athletic training where it becomes a necessity in comparison to the quantum of energy one is burning. The time you workout is of vital importance for your workout meals. Workouts in morning are in a fasted state and might have the need of a pre workout snacking in case you going for weight training. Workouts at lunch and evenings generally body does have the energy to suffice the need. So that’s the logic part lets come down to foods.
Complex carbs before and simple carbs post is what I have seen people following. Foods like Banana, Yogurt (Dahi), fruit smoothies, Fruits, Apple wedges.
Post workouts go for chocolate milk, Omelets, Avocado, Mixed Vegetables, Wheat Spinach and Tuna Sandwich.
