Whether you’re a casual jogger or gym addict, it’s always important to make sure that you’re getting the most out of your workouts. The health benefits of a good workout are endless. Not only can it help you physically, helping you to balance your weight and improve energy, but exercise also promotes healthy sleep patterns and a better mood. How can you make sure your body is reaping all of the benefits of an excellent workout? You turn to your diet.
Best Foods for a Healthy Workout
Foods that fuel your exercise performance are very important. It’s about eating the right types of food at the right time throughout the day. A healthy breakfast can help you get off to a good start. According to an article published in the Harvard Health Letter, eating breakfast regularly has been linked to a lower risk of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Starting your day off with a good meal can also help replenish your blood sugar levels to help power your muscles and brain energy.
Be sure to stay away from sugar and turn to grains like oatmeal and whole grain cereals that are high in fiber. Some good sources of protein are milk, yogurt, nuts and eggs.
Supplementing your Healthy Workout
Interested in taking your healthy eating to the next level? One way to really increase your productivity and ensure you’re reaching your maximum potential during workouts is through the use of sport related products.
If you want to both step up your workouts while at the same time increasing your overall health, taking a multivitamin is the perfect solution. Taking a multivitamin is beneficial in upping your performance on and off the field by combining useful supplements including vitamin c, vitamin d, calcium, magnesium, as well as many others. A performance multivitamin is a superior supplement that can benefit any lifestyle, but it is particularly helpful for athletes and for those with an active routine. It helps to provide powerful cell protection, increases stamina and endurance, improves stress resistance, and strengthens the immune system. It also improves the circadian rhythm – the body’s normal adaptation to the 24 hour clock – helping your body adjust to more vigorous exercise and recover more quickly after a workout. A superior performance multivitamin will be non-GMO, made following cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices) and made with vegetarian capsules that offer efficient absorption and protects the delicate ingredients.†
One ingredient that’s a must for all athletes looking for a boost is creatine. Creatine has been shown to enhance muscle mass, as well as build up strength and give enhanced boosts of energy, which is great if you’re an athlete like a weightlifter or a sprinter. A superior Creatine powder supplement will be non-GMO and made following cGMP standards. In a study published by the Public Library of Science One, researchers from various Canadian research institutions placed thirty-nine older adults, aged 65 to 85, who lived at home on a six-month exercise and supplement regimen. One group was supplemented with 5 grams of Creatine Monohydrate with 2 grams of dextrose along with 6 grams of Conjugated Linoleic Acid and the other group received placebo (dummy pills resembling the supplements) for 24 weeks. All participants performed resistance exercise twice a week for the study period. Functional capacity improved in both groups as measured by the ability to walk, sit, stand, and climb stairs and overall balance. Among those supplemented with Conjugated Linoleic Acid and Creatine Monohydrate, there was a greater gain in muscle endurance and a significant increase in muscle mass with a significant decrease in body fat compared to those on placebo.†
