On February 14, 2013, Muscular Development Store releases a statement following a Stack article by Jim Carpentier regarding how pre-workout snacks can help provide an energy boost when exercising.
According to the Stack article, if you exercise on an empty stomach, you’ll end up running out of energy during the middle of a tough workout. Having a pre-workout meal is essential, and would help provide energy for intense physical exercises.
The article states that, “Fresh or dried fruits are excellent energy-boosters—they are sources of complex carbohydrates—and nuts have protein and heart-healthy fats. Fruit and nuts are also rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, which not only enhance your immune system, but also boost recovery between workouts, practices and games.” The article mentions that apples, almonds, bananas and Brazil nuts are all good pre-workout snacks.
The article goes on the mention that, “For athletes seeking to gain weight for their sport, who therefore require more time for digestion before exercising, these triple combo snacks have more calories. Carbohydrate-rich dried fruit, popcorn and dark chocolate are heart-healthy foods (athletes need healthy hearts for endurance). Seeds and nuts have protein; and the nuts, seeds and dark chocolate also have healthy fats.” The pre-workout snacks for athletes trying to gain weight are more calorie heavy, and involve foods like dark chocolate chips and popcorn.
Brian Turner, representative of the Muscular Development Store, knows how important a pre-workout snack is. “Exercising on an empty stomach is never a good idea. Simple pre-workout snacks like almonds or even an apple can make a big difference in an exercise routine. In addition, the use of supplements can make a huge difference for your performance.”
