Working out regularly results in many health benefits like a leaner body and a more mobile lifestyle, but to improve your overall wellness, you should be thinking about more than just your time on the treadmill. From how you take care of your body to what you put in it, many factors can impact the efficacy of your fitness routine and your overall health. To help you work out safely and maximize exercise's benefits, talk to your health club and read more workout tips in the resources below.
- A balanced diet includes not only the right foods but the right liquids. Especially if you are exercising and sweating, staying hydrated is critical to maintaining proper body function.
- Eating before you exercise can provide your body with the fuel it needs, but which foods should you choose? Instead of working out on an empty stomach or a stomach full of junk food, choose protein and simple carbs that give energy and burn off quickly.
- Just as important as the time you put in on the treadmill is the stretching you do before you get on it. These dynamic stretching tips from Runner’s World can help you to protect your joints and prevent injury before a run.
