Workout prep you shouldn't forget
Make sure you’ve drank enough today, and go for an extra glass before you get started. And of course, bring along a bottle. But don’t overdo it! Overdrinking can make you feel bloated, so follow your bod and drink when you’re thirsty.
Skipping pre-workout snacks is a total don’t. But so is munching on stuff that’s bad for you. Go for fruits, grains, and proteins. Try treats like whole-wheat toast with PB or Greek yogurt with granola.
Dress for success
Workout attire can be cute, but make sure it’s practical too. Wear comfy kicks that support your feet, and stretchy fabrics that keep you cool and let your bod breathe. And a little gym glam never hurt anyone. Pick pretty pieces to boost your mood and make you ready to move.
You’re pumped to push it, but before you get started, take a sec to stretch. It’s an important step to make your workout better, and more importantly, keep you from getting hurt. Spend about 5 minutes targeting your legs and your core.
Simple, easy motions to get your bod going are a must for pre-workout prep. Do a few squats and jumping jacks, or go for a quick jog to get your heart rate going.
