Proper hydration and nutrition prior to training

Summer is right around the corner, so get ready for those warmer temps and their impact on training. Drink at least 16 – 20 ounces prior to training….proper hydration is key to sustaining your workouts in warmer temps. If you haven’t eaten in 3+ hours, eat a light snack of mainly fast-digesting carbs (fruits, bars, shakes, etc.) with just a touch of protein no less than 20 -30 minutes prior to training. (The ratio should be 2:1 or 3:1 carbs to proteins).
If you’re doing an extensive workout or are outside, make sure your drink has an electrolyte component that includes sodium….need to replenish what sweat has depleted.
Hydrate continuously during your workouts for optimal performance and muscle health…..and remember…..always put some fun in your training!!!
