GeneralDo’s and Don’ts Before and After Working Out to Maximize Results

While the amount of time you spend working out (and the types of workouts you focus on) are going to be the primary ways in which you build your muscle, the way you prep your body for the workout and treat it after the workout also plays an important role in how fast you see your results.

For instance, giving your body the energy it needs before the workout, and also feeding it with the right amount of nutrition after the workout can work wonders, especially if you’re trying to add more bulk to your muscles in a short span of time.

In this article, we’re going to walk you through some of the best ways to maximize your results, and also list out some of the mistakes people commonly make which can slow down their progress as well. Let’s get started!

Use a pre-workout drink before you workout

Use a good pre-workout energy drink. Pre-workouts are packed with all the right ingredients which will give your body the energy boost it needs before you begin an intense and long workout session.

Whether you workout early in the morning and need something to wake you up and get you going, or hit the gym after work and need a boost to get you going after the long day you’ve had — a pre-workout will instantly give you the energy you need to have a long and intense workout session.

This is because all the ingredients used in pre-workout drinks consist of supplements that are meant to wake your body up, stimulate your mind, and give your muscles the protein it needs to make it through a tough workout session.

If you’ve never used a pre-workout before, you could start by reading all about why you should invest in it if you’re serious about making the most of your workout and seeing faster results – this pre workout for beginners covers everything you need to know, right from the different kinds of ingredients used in it to how each one benefits your overall workout session in the long run.

How to build muscle and see faster results

Avoid overeating or starving yourself

Many people have two common misconceptions – they either eat too much after their workout in order to bulk up sooner, or starve themselves to burn their calories.

Both of these can have major side-effects in the long run, especially if you’re working out on a regular basis and tend to have intense workout sessions.

The best practice is to maintain a balanced, controlled diet throughout your fitness journey. Include everything that’s good for you – from fats, mean, carbs, vitamins, and supplements, if necessary.

One of the easiest ways to know if you’re following a healthy diet is to talk to a dietician, discuss your physical needs, and find out exactly what (and how much) you should be eating everyday.

It also helps to cut out all the unhealthy foods you may otherwise consume – such as processed foods, foods loaded with preservatives, sugar, and deep fried foods.

Allow your body to rest after your workout

Very often, people who are keen on seeing faster results get into the habit of over-training, as this makes it feel like they’ll be able to double their progress in a short amount of time. The reality is that your body has a limit, and pushing it beyond it is not going to benefit you in the long run. Not only will overtraining cause physical pain and damage to your muscles and body, but it will also reduce your overall performance – leading to slower results in the long run.

Like everything else, finding the perfect balance between training your body and giving it adequate rest is something you’ll have to do if you really want to see the best results in a short span of time.
