So why do people train. To look good? To feel better in themselves. To fit into those jeans or dress? As a hobby or life choice? As a sportsman or woman? And or for health reasons?
All of the above reasons are great and good for you.
But slogging it out in the gym is only part of the picture.
Nutrition is another part of the foundation for better results for all your hard work on the treadmill or lifting the weights.
Water helps muscle ache less, and can prevent cramping in the muscles. Set an alarm on your mobile to encourage regular water intake. No-one drinks enough water.
Stretching. This will improve the flexibility in the body and joints. No-one stretches enough after a workout or after a day on shift.
And lastly, sleep. Everyone sleeps for different lengths each night. It averages between 6 to 8 hours a night. It just needs to be consistent. This is when the body repairs itself, to clear build up of toxins and waste products and to relax the brain.
If you have all of the above on point, then your doing well. If not then aim for small changes in routine for improved results
