“You only get out of it what you put into it” as the saying goes.. But that doesn’t only refer to your work ethic; it can also be applied to your eating habits before and after your workout. It’s important that before your workout you eat foods that will give you plenty of energy. After your workout you need to eat foods that don’t just throw away your past hour of hardwork.
