Fueling for a Workout

ENERGIZE

It is so important to know your body and how it responds under stress. Under stress I mean a workout.  Everyone does not respond the same.

There are different times and I have no idea what make a difference I will have what I call “my jump to it juice” powerful energy drink to get me started on my  workout.  My juice gives me that extra I need to push harder especially if it’s a weight lifting day included with an intense cardio workout.  Now there are days I have to have substance like food which is usually almond butter on multi grain toast with 1/4 banana sliced.  However unlike my juice which I am ready to go for it in 20-30 minutes, I must wait an hour. I know an hour is a lot of time too many but I will get so nauseous if I push it.  There are friends that can eat a nice healthy breakfast and 20- 30 minutes later they are fueled up and ready to give their workout 100 +. I can’t, Ive tried several times not for me.

Now on the other side there are so many can go on a cup of strong coffee or just nothing. Again it is important to know what works for you  to begin your workout and to endure the workout. Yes now that you are in it, make certain you also are hydrated well during your workout.  Know your body because H20 maybe enough but you may need to add electrolytes, there are many choices or a few dashes of Himalayan salt.  Just stay tuned to the body and know what works and what doesn’t.

To weeks of getting your body fueled for awesome workouts.
