Pre-Workout Fueling

Giving your body what it needs before exercise is an essential component to maximize any workout. To achieve optimal results it is beneficial to know the appropriate balance between carbohydrates and protein, specific to both your individual needs and the demands of the workout.  Pre-workout nutrition provides your body with a source of energy, a reduced risk of injury and the appropriate type of fuel for your workout.

 

From yoga to power lifting, the metabolic demands vary so your pre-workout fuel choice should match your exercise.  A 30-minute yoga session may only require half of a granola bar prior, while running 90 minutes may require 1.5-2 of the same granola bar. Meeting with a sports dietitian will help you learn what fuel choices are optimal for your exercise regime!
