3 Fueling Tips For your Workout

1. DRINK WATER: I can not emphasize enough how important staying hydrated is. Drink 1/4-1/2 cup of water every 15-20 minutes during your workout. When it's really hot out, you will need more.

2. LIMIT HIGH FAT FOODS: Limit high fat foods to 2 hours prior to your workout. High fats take a long time to digest. A small serving of fat is ideal, such as half an avocado or PB toast.

3. POST WORKOUT MEAL: Focus on a carb and protein heavy post-workout meal. The basic rule is 50 grams of carbs and 20 grams of protein, within 1 hour of finishing the workout, for muscle recovery.
