Best 7 Pre-Workout Snacks
If you eat the right snack before your workout, you will have so much more energy.
Have you ever eaten and gone to the gym right afterwards? There were some days I couldn’t organise myself better and I swear, I wanted to puke when doing that set of squats! I figured that I get the best results when eating a light meal 2-3 hours before training, but you may want to eat only 1-2 hours before. Important is that the food doesn’t lie heavy in your stomach and that you have still enough energy to jumpstart your upcoming session.
The snacks I chose contain equal parts of fast-digesting carbs and protein to fuel your muscles before you hit the gym. Drink 5-6 dl of water with your meal to be ideally prepared for your badass training.
