How to Improve Your Workout

Helen Bush

You should never waste a second of your time on an ineffective workout. You want to know that the time you spend exercising is actually worth it, so we have compiled some tips you can use before, during, and after your time at the gym.


  1. What you eat can affect your workout. Before the gym, you should eat slow-digesting carbs such as oatmeal, sweet potatoes, fruit, buckwheat or whole wheat bread. It is also beneficial to eat a green salad with your last meal before the gym. You should avoid having high-fat meals before your workout.
  2. As you workout you should keep your focus on the muscles you are training and vary the speed of repetitions. You can also benefit from exercising with several partners. Listening to music also helps you exercise longer and achieve more.
  3. Stretching after your workouts can help already warm and pliable muscle to remain flexible. Also remember to stay hydrated. Drink plenty of liquids during the day, also before, during and after your workout. Listen to your body and play it safe.
