Weekly Workouts 2/26 – 3/4

I like smiling, smiling is my favorite

What should you eat before your workout?

The purpose of a preworkout snack is to provide energy for a workout, so it’s best to eat something easily digestible that’s higher in carbs. Carbs are the best source of energy and are generally the easiest nutrient to digest. I usually workout first thing in the morning, so my preworkout snack is very important. My go-to is a banana because it digests easily, has a good amount of carbs, and doesn’t upset my stomach. If I don’t eat a banana then I usually eat some cereal. Some other ideas include: yogurt and fruit, oats, protein bar, and peanut butter toast
