Three Great Workout Tips

1. Eat something light before any workout– I’m not saying a 4-course meal, but you should most certainly eat something light ONE HOUR prior to a workout. Fruit, oatmeal, cereal, etc. Your body needs the energy, and the food will assist in providing that energy; if you don’t eat, you may feel nauseous, light-headed, or other symptoms (I learned this from experience…please eat before working out)

2. Bring water or a water supplement w you to your workout.– self-explanatory…working out tends to bring about sweat, which can dehydrate you. Water, Gatorade, or some form of vitamin water will quench the beast known as “thirst”.

3. Always stretch BEFORE a workout, and do cool down exercises after your workout– you don’t wanted begin a workout w out warming up your muscles/limbs, so light stretching is extremely important. After your workout session, muscles that you’ve worked need time to “relax”, if you will lol. Therefore, you should make sure to do cool down exercises which will also decrease the heart rate.
