Food Intake is Important for Pre and Post-workout.
Athletes use a range of dietary strategies to improve exercise performance including eating carbohydrates and especially protein following workout programs. They also focus on maintaining proper hydration during and after physical training. According to a study on the role of nutrients for post-exercise recovery, without adequate carbohydrates, proteins, and fluids, performance can be impaired. Consuming carbohydrates along with protein immediately after exercise has shown to be an excellent strategy to maximize rates of energy restored to muscle cells.
