Pre & Post Workout Nutrition
Who & When?
Who would benefit from a targeted approach and when?
Adjusting meal portions, and/or adding snacks is important for anyone who is participating in a workout that is (a) more than 60 minutes, and (b) at a moderate to high intensity with continuous/consistent effort (i.e. endurance athlete, body-building)
15-75 minutes prior to your workout
Within of 15-30 minutes of completing your workout
What does it taste like?
What does a pre-workout meal or snack look/taste like?
Why It’s Important
The purpose of your pre-workout snack/meal is to ensure your muscles are maximally fueled so that you have consistent energy for the entirety of your workout.
The purpose of your post-workout snack/meal is to kick-start the process of muscle building and repair. It also replenishes your muscles ‘fuel tank’ so you have the energy and stamina for the next day’s workout.
What If I Still Care about Nutrition but I Don’t Fit the Above Description or have Special Considerations?
If you’re not training as an endurance athlete or aren’t working towards large strength or muscle gains, then you likely don’t need a targeted workout nutrition strategy.
