Whether your goal at the gym is to improve muscle tone, increase cardio ability, get in shape or just to pursue a healthy lifestyle, you will need to improve both strength and stamina. To achieve a conditioning goal like this and keep building on your accomplishments, it’s advisable to plan out a clean eating diet that continuously fuels muscle rebuilding with amino acids from protein, while also replenishing your body’s stores of the carbohydrate energy known as glycogen.
Here are a few principles to keep in mind to support your training:
- Do short, intense workouts
- Make certain you are getting adequate sleep
- Never miss a meal
- Keep a food diary to monitor how much protein, carbs and fat you’re consuming from whole foods daily
