Whether you’re doing strength training or cardio, this infographic from our friends at Greatist can tell you what you should be eating both before and after you hit the gym.
For example, if you’re focusing on strength training, you should fill up on protein beforehand so your body can have a ready supply for tissue repair. Doing cardio? Focus on carbs for that much needed energy.
After working up a sweat with strength-training exercises, try a chocolate protein shake. Post-cardio workout, you should try reaching for apple slices with a handful of walnuts.
