Pre and Post Exercise Nutrition


Proper nutrition is essential for optimal performance during training and recovery post-training. Consuming the right foods at the right time can help to fuel your body, improve endurance and strength, and speed up recovery.


Pre-training nutrition is essential for providing your body with the energy and nutrients it needs to perform at its best. The ideal pre-training meal should be consumed 2-3 hours before your workout and should include a balance of carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats.


Carbohydrates are the primary source of energy for your muscles during intense physical activity. Consuming complex carbohydrates such as whole grains, fruits, and vegetables will provide a steady source of energy throughout your workout. These types of carbohydrates are also rich in fiber and other essential nutrients.


Protein is also important for pre-training nutrition, as it helps to repair and rebuild muscle tissue. Eating lean protein sources such as chicken, fish, or tofu can help to support muscle growth and repair.


Healthy fats are also an important part of a pre-training meal. They provide energy, aid in absorption of certain vitamins and minerals, and help to keep you feeling full and satisfied. Good sources of healthy fats include avocado, nuts, seeds, and olive oil.


In terms of portion sizes, a good rule of thumb for a pre-training meal is to aim for about 0.5 to 1 gram of carbohydrates per pound of body weight, and about 0.2 to 0.
