These Pre-Workout Snacks are easy and incredibly helpful for your routine.
The worst thing about working out (apart from working out) is the whole food decision that one has to take. What to eat, when to eat and what not? All of this consume a majority of your time when you’re not working your ass off for shedding or gaining those extra kilos.
Food is one of the most important parts of working out and no matter what you want your body to be, food does play a crucial part in getting you closer to your goal. One has to understand that working as hard as possible in the gym can only be beneficial if you have a look out on your diet, that is, what you’re putting in your body.
However, today we decided to talk about pre-workout snacking.
One thing that everyone should, basically rote learn now that never, and I definitely mean never, workout on an empty stomach. Your body needs some sort of fuel before going through a rigorous set of exercising. Make sure to have a combination of carbs and proteins which would provide you a stream of energy for a challenging workout and nutrients to repair muscles afterward.
Here are 9 best things that you can include in your pre-workout snack and instantly feel energised.
Banana is rich in fast-acting carbohydrates which are a great usable fuel for your body and workout.
Caffeine is considered to be a great pre-workout snack as it gives you a jump of energy to get each and every workout done. However, this doesn’t mean that you consume a Starbucks Latte with whipped cream and all. Try having an espresso shot right before you step out for exercise and see the result.
Oats are jam packed with fibre, which gives a steady release of carbohydrates in your bloodstream and gets you moving.
Yes, a small bowl of chickpea with lemon juice can alone provide you a whole lot of protein, fibre and carbohydrates. Apart from this, it is one of the easiest pre-workout snacks to have.
5. Dried Fruit
Try having a handful of dried fruit as your pre-workout snack, when you have just minutes before heading for your usual workouts. It’s light and full of simple carbs that give instant energy.
6. Wholegrain Bread
Wholegrain Bread is filled with fibre which provides slow release of sustained energy throughout your workout. You can have it alone or combine it with some peanut butter.
7. Greek Yogurt
Greek Yogurt is full of proteins and contains almost double a number of proteins than simple yogurt, plus, it also has half the amount of raw sugar than regular yogurt.
8. Egg Whites
You can have boiled egg whites or basically make an omelette out of it. It has a good amount of proteins and absolutely no fat.
9. Fruit Smoothies
Pick your favourite fruits and just throw them in a blender to get yourself a delicious and full of proteins, fruit smoothie. These smoothies can be easily digested and have the combination of simple and complex carbohydrates which can last for your entire 1-hour workout.
Again, remember to eat something before you start your workout. No matter if you’re trying to lose weight or gain muscles, eating something before works for making you feel energised and is an absolute must. Pre-Workout Snacks are the key to success and your goals.
