You’ve just finished your ‘at home’ workout. You know, because you aren’t allowed to visit the gym just yet? Anyway, most people take a shower right away. However, did you know that there are other things you need to do before that? No worries, almost everyone makes the same mistakes!
1. Skip the cooling down
After an intense workout, it’s important for you to do a cooling down. Why? Because if you wouldn’t, your heart rate drops too quickly. That may cause dizziness and even cause you to faint. Now, I think I speak for everyone when I tell you that that’s the last thing you want to happen.
2. Not stretching before you begin
To avoid muscle pain, it’s important to stretch your muscles and limbs before you start working out. Why? Because your muscles will grow much faster and heal quicker. Plus, you’ll get much better results. So: don’t forget it!
3. Wrong food
After you’re done with your workout, there are specific kinds of food you should eat to reduce your muscle pain. Eat carbohydrates and proteins, for example, a boiled egg.
4. Drink too little water
Are you totally exhausted after your workout? That means you haven’t drunk enough water. It’s important to do so because it helps your muscles to recover and will lessen your muscle pain.
5. Keep wearing your workout clothes
Sure, your sports leggings might be very comfy, but it’s not supposed to be worn after your workout Why? Because it can cause infections (for females in the female parts) and that’s the last thing you want to happen.
How often do you workout?
