Pre-workout food

Pre-workout nutrition is critical for optimal performance and muscle building. Here are the best nutritional strategies for muscle building from the book "The Nutrient Timing for Peak Performance".

🍌 Start with carbohydrates

Carbohydrates are your best friend when it comes to pre-workout nutrition. They provide the energy you need for your workout. A banana or a bowl of oatmeal about 30-60 minutes before your workout is a good choice.

🥜 Add proteins

Proteins are important for muscle building. They help stimulate muscle protein synthesis and prevent muscle breakdown. A shake with Whey protein or a yogurt with nuts can help.

💧 Do not forget to hydrate

Hydration is an often overlooked aspect of pre-workout nutrition. Drink enough water before your workout to keep your body well hydrated.

🚫 Avoid foods that are difficult to digest.

Foods that are difficult to digest can cause stomach discomfort during exercise. Avoid foods high in fat or fiber just before training.

⏰ Pay attention to timing

The timing of your pre-workout nutrition is critical. As recommended in the book "The Nutrient Timing for Peak Performance", you should eat a full meal 2-3 hours before your workout and a light snack 30-60 minutes before.

📝 Individualize your strategy

Every body is different. Experiment with different foods and timings to find out what works best for you.
