Energy boosting tips for a great workout
1. Eat right
A healthy, balanced diet is an essential part of any successful fitness plan and a key factor when it comes to keeping your energy levels up. Organic superfoods, healthy snacks, and the right mix of supplements will boost your energy and awareness levels as well as reduce tiredness and stress. Sugars and refined carbs will do the opposite. Eat regularly, eat well, and use the right supplements (think energy boosters!) to give your body what it needs to perform at its best.
2. Sleep well
When it comes to a healthy lifestyle and energetic vibes, sleep is a must. Make sure you get to bed on time for a good night’s sleep – most people need a solid eight hours’ shut eye before they’re able to pump at their peak.
3. Keep hydrated
Dehydration will slow you down, making you feel tired and lethargic. Most of us don’t drink enough water during the day and often mistake thirst for hunger. Energy drinks and protein shakes can offer a welcome energy boost as well – just be sure to pick the right ones for your workout needs.
4. Take a vitamin-B rich multivitamin
Vitamin B is essential for transferring energy from food to your body. Boost your vitamin and mineral intake with a high quality, Vitamin B rich multivit to lessen fatigue and stress, and help you perform better, inside and outside the gym.
‘Did it’ rewards, feel-good music, the promise to meet your gym buddy on the circuit… Mental motivations can go a long way to boosting your energy levels and putting you in the right frame of mind for a great workout. Find out what works for you and work that.
