Pre and post workout Tips

If you are a person that train or do any physical activity, you should know what to do before a workout and what to do after a workout, to impact your progress and results.

Exercises are part of my healthy habits, I do it in a conscious way. I am sharing some tips to help you to have energy during your workout and to recover fast.

Pre workout:

  • Prioritize getting enough good quality sleep.
  • Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
  • Before I go to train, I alternate daily some drinks to boost my energy like:
  • I drink one cup of matcha green tea with one spoon of bee pollen or
  • Matcha green tea with Maca, a natural superfood that can enhance your strength; Inca warriors consumed it before battles to make them strong. 
  • Also I drink a green juice to don’t go to train with my empty stomach because I train in the morning. Green juices provide you fiber, hydrate you, highly alkalizing.
  • Consuming Beet juice with fresh orange juice may boost stamina and improve blood flow. 
  • One tablespoon of L-carnitine, It’s formed in your liver and kidneys and made from two essential amino acids (lysine and methionine). It helps the body turn fat into energy.

Post workout:

  • Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
  • Stretch well to reduces pain and risk of injury also to eliminate lactic acid and  to increase flexibility.
  • Consume enough protein, powder, plant based or if you eat animal protein try to eat sustainable fish and free-range eggs or chicken. Its environmental also less toxins for your body. I use VEGA protein, I do plant-based smoothies with superfood that are antioxidants like goji berries, blueberries or acai.
  • Eat Amino acids like Bee Pollen help the body build protein, which is vital to building and growing new muscles. Also helps recovery fast after workouts. I add it to the smoothies, fruit bowls, oat meal.
  • Don’t forget Fatty acids like almond butter packed with omega 3 are important to reduce inflammation and muscle stiffness, build muscle and burn fat. I add it to my smoothies, on a gluten free toast or with fruits like figs, strawberries and banana.
