5 best pre and post-workout foods

Whether you’re looking to build weight or gain muscle, balancing nutrition and diet with exercise is important to reaching your fitness goals. Entire Training’s award-winning tutors have compiled a list of the top 5 foods that can help you to prepare for your workout and rest after you’ve finished.

Top pre-workout snacks

What you eat before starting your workout is incredibly important as it gives your body the energy it needs to maximise the benefits of all your hard work at the gym. Carbohydrates are a good place to start and our tutors recommend oatmeal with low-fat milk and fruit. They are digested quickly and give you that boost of energy you need.

Protein is usually thought of as a post-workout staple but a little bit can help during exercise, especially if you plan on doing any work with weights. Protein helps muscles to heal and strengthen following your trip to the gym, which is of course the ultimate goal. Greek yoghurt and a handful of nuts and raisins are an uncomplicated way of getting the protein you need.

Post-workout meals

For the 45 minutes after your workout, your body is especially good at absorbing carbs and protein. Eggs are packed with nutrients and protein, making them the perfect post-workout food. Serve them however you like and maybe add peppers, onions or meat for an extra protein boost!

Pasta has always been a popular choice in many different diets and fitness programmes. Rich in carbohydrates, immediately after a workout is the perfect time to enjoy a pasta dish. Add chicken or beef for that extra dash of protein.

Entire Training is a leading provider of gym instructor courses that give trainers the skills they need to be successful. Our tutors understand the important of healthy eating when it comes to exercise and often go on to complete the Level 3 Award in Nutrition for Physical Activity.
