When it comes to getting ready for the gym, a mental preparedness takes place of how badass of a workout you're going to have. If you're a caffeine person you may like to take it before your workout to get you a pump going. If you’re not a caffeine person you may look for alternatives on how to get your pre workout game going before you hit the gym. Luckily there are a few natural ways to boost your pre workout game without all the super caffeined powders or other super packed fillers.
Fruits In The Morning
If you are the kind of person that likes to have a little something in your tummy before your workout, try eating some good old high fiber fruit like apples, oranges, strawberries, mango,...etc. This helps with bowel movements and there’s nothing like working out feeling light as a feather! Not only does it help you feel extra light but fruits contain natural sugar and also, fruits are good for you to help your immune system strong as ever!
Get Your Full Hours of Sleep
Whether you feel fully rested on 5 hours or 10 hours of sleep, make sure you're getting a full night’s rest every night! This helps you feel refreshed and energized for the day vs feeling groggy and tired during the day that would affect your motivation to get your workout on.
Keeping up with your water intake impacts you more than you probably think! One of the side effects of being dehydrated is feeling fatigue and weakness. Obviously we can’t have that if we are trying to boost our pre workout game! We must replenish our muscles to give us the boost that we need. There are also so many other positive effects of drinking water you can read all about it here in our article.
