My Top 3 Pre-workout Energy Boosters To Get You Jumping Out Of Bed
I don’t know about you but I need something to eat before I work out. If I’m just going on a walk or light yoga I’m ok, however if I’m doing anything cardio or weights I’ve gotta eat.
Obviously, you don’t want anything heavy. The key is eating something easily digestible, something that’s going to go down and stay down.
I’m super excited to share with you my top 3 pre-workout energy boosters so you can feel powered up and ready for your workout:
1. Coffee – Yes coffee!
It’s an amazing pre-workout, it obviously wakes you up thanks to the caffeine but it also helps increase your metabolism, making your workout count for more. It has also been shown to increase performance, focus and decrease muscle pain. Pretty awesome hey, I’ll have a double espresso please.
2. Date and almond butter
Dates are great pre-workout as they digest easily giving you a quick fix of energy, and the nut butter helps it release slower so you don’t crash half way through your session. They are super easy to make just pop a tbsp. of nut butter inside a date and you’re ready to go! If you don’t have any dates to hand, why not grill some bananas and munch them with nut butter.
3. Protein Shake
Tried, tested and always a winner. I love Neat Nutrition and Sun warrior, they are naturally sweetened so you don’t need to add anything in but they aren’t full of rubbish like many other brands. I just add a scoop to 250ml of almond milk or water and drink it before I head out the door.
