Top Six Pre-Workout Foods

We all want to train harder, spin faster, run quicker, jump higher, lift heavier weights but to do all of this our body needs to be fuelled with the right foods. Our body needs the right balance of carbs, fats and protein to fight fatigue and aid recovery. There are certain foods that help you maximize the efficiency of your gym workout and we have curated a list for just that!

  1. Bananas

    These are power packed with the right carbs and potassium that’s supports nerve and muscle function. They are perfect to snack on right before your workout.

  2. Oats

    They have a slow release mechanism wherein the carbohydrates are released gradually into your body ensuring higher energy levels throughout your workout.

  3. Whole Grain Bread

    Have it along with boiled eggs or some low-fat chicken for some add-on proteins.

  4. Grilled Chicken, Broccoli and Sweet Potato

    This combo is a must-try for anyone trying to build muscle mass. It’s more of a meal than snack so make sure you have it at least 40 minutes before you hit the gym.

  5. Dry Fruits

    One of the easiest pre-workout food that you can have! Just munch on some apricots, figs, pineapple or dried berries and you are good to go!

  6. Greek Yogurt with Fruits

    Fruits will give you the carbs you need for the energy and yogurt will give you the protein-filled punch. Greek yogurt has almost double the protein than regular yogurt and also fewer carbs.
