Want to maximize your workouts? Consider adding these pre-workout ideas for sustained energy.

  1. Nut butter and banana slices: bananas are a simple carb with both natural sugars and potassium which can help prevent muscle cramps. Nut butter is a healthy fat that can help keep you energized throughout your entire workout routine.
  2. Oatmeal and blueberries: The complex carbs in oatmeal are broken down in your system slowly, keeping you energized longer. Blueberries contain antioxidants that can help prevent cell damage.
  3. Chicken breast, veggies and steamed rice: You’ll need to wait at least an hour two before hitting the gym after having this hearty meal but when you do, you’ll gain the benefits of all macronutrients (fat, carbs, protein) along with fiber which aids in healthy digestion.
