Pre-workout Myth vs. Fact


Myth: “I don’t have time to eat a snack before practice … no big deal!”

Fact: The truth is that a pre-workout snack is essential to give you a burst of energy to start practice. The goal is to have complex carbohydrate and some protein plus 8-16 oz fluid. So bring something you can throw in your gym bag like an energy bar and apple, peanut butter crackers and banana, or a baggie of homemade trail mix with granola/nuts/dried fruit. Avoid foods that are fried, high in fat or loaded with sugar.
