Starting your day correctly!
There are various physiological factors which affect the way your body runs in the morning which can have an effect for the rest of the day. By following some basic, yet essential practices first thing, I feel you can optimise your results, performance and health.
First thing in the morning when your stomach is in a fasted state, I feel it's good practice to line the gut with nutrients which help digestion. Ingredients such as a greens powder🌿, lemon juice 🍋and apple cider vinegar along with glutamine all help the gut in different ways. If you often feel bloated or suffer from indigestion you'll notice far less bloating and indigestion in your gut during the day because of this!
After 6-8 hours of sleeping, it is very important to rehydrate. Simply drinking a litre of water with your breakfast is the best way forward. As well, adding electrolytes can help. This is particularly important to those individuals who train soon after waking up. Drink plenty of fluids and allow extra time to warm up before getting into your heavy sets.
Finally, your breakfast...🥚🥑🍳 In all instances you need a good supply of easily digesting protein to quickly get into the bloodstream. It makes sense to eat something which is relatively easy on your digestive system for breakfast. My personal favorite are egg whites. They are a very easy digesting protein source for most people.
I am sure everyone who trains wants to get the best out of their workouts in the gyms or outdoors. By simply following these simple methods you can do that. The secret is in the little details. Have a great day everyone. 📸 @peter_at_photoshoot
