When you're training, it's best to hydrate early and often. The goal is to drink before, during and after training sessions as much as possible:
Before exercise: Your body needs time to process all the liquid you're going to consume during a workout so start hydrating before working out. This will help ensure that your muscles and brain are adequately hydrated when they need it most.
After exercise: You should always be drinking right after a tough workout because this allows your body an opportunity for muscle recovery via rehydration of fluids lost during sweat production while exercising.
Carbohydrates are your body's preferred source of fuel, so it makes sense that eating them before exercise will help you perform better and reduce muscle damage during and after exercise. Try starting with one or two pieces of fruit and then have a flapjack or whole grain cereal for breakfast.
Your body needs carbohydrates to replenish what was burned during exercise, so it helps to refuel immediately after finishing up your session instead of waiting until lunchtime or later in the day when blood sugar levels could be lower than usual due to lower activity levels throughout the morning.
Eating a carbohydrate source after working out helps replenish the muscle. This aids in recovery. You can also reduce muscle soreness by eating carbohydrates before your exercise sessions. This enables you to start your workout with optimized glycogen levels.
