6 Great Pre-Workout Meals

Eating the correct foods pre-workout is vital. So if you’ve started this year off with a new training programme, make sure you’ve stocked up on the right snacks, too. We share some great ones to add to your grocery list, courtesy of myprotein.com:

  1. Bananas: Not only are the full of potassium, but they’re a great source of natural sugars and are the perfect snack 30 minutes before you start exercising. Experts say eating a banana pre-workout is the perfect way to boost your glycogen stores and increase blood sugar levels.

  1. Yoghurt and dried fruit: It’s delicious and nutritious. While dried fruit is high in sugar and calories, it’s a great snack, say experts, to be eaten pre workout.

  1. Porridge and oatmeal: A perfect breakfast before your morning workout, contain complex carbohydrates and soluble fibre. But make sure to eat it about two hours before you start training.

  1. Fruit smoothies: These are just great for breakfast — especially in summer. They taste fabulous and contain the series of micronutrients beneficial for your health and wellbeing.

  1. Apple wedges with peanut butter: Slices of apple with a small spread of peanut butter is a great pre-workout snack and can be consumed 30 minutes before you start exercising.

  1. Omelettes: They’re a great source of muscle building protein and amino acids, but should be eaten about two to three hours before you hit the gym.
