Post-Workout Mistakes that can Sabotage Progress

Los Angeles, CA – 3/10/2014

With aproper diet and exercise program, most people can expect to see results withinsix to eight weeks from the start of the program.  However, if this milestone passes and thereis little movement on the scale or in the fit of a person’s clothes, they’rebound to become frustrated.  They maythink that they’re following all the right steps, but there are several littlethings we all do that can potentially sabotage our hard work, and keep us fromgetting the results we desperately crave.


Manypeople are under the impression that unless the body is breaking a sweatconstantly that they aren’t getting any benefit.  Therefore, they push themselves harder andharder during each workout but take no time to stretch or recover at theend.  Considering the cool down portionof a workout as a waste of time can put the body at risk for injury or leave aperson feeling stiff and sore.  This cancause them to skip a few workouts, thus putting off progress they would havemade by taking the time to recover properly.


Inaddition to needing recovery from the physical exertion of a workout, the bodyalso needs recovery in the form of fluid replacement and nourishment.  Sports drinks can help replenish the bodyafter intense workouts, or exercise done in extreme heat, but for shorterbursts of activity save the calories and stick with water.  In addition to this, it’s okay to reward theappetite with an occasional indulgence, but making it a regular habit cansabotage the results a person is working for. Find healthy ways to satisfy cravings and refuel the body for the fullbenefit of activity.


Forrefueling, timing is essential.  If wewait too long to consume a post-workout snack we could miss out on the body’sability to fully absorb the nutrients we’re providing.  Think about eating a protein rich snackwithin 30 minutes of a strength building workout, and at least 60 minutes afterany type of activity.


Keepingthese little tips in mind will help the body achieve the results we work sohard for, and make the body healthier overall in the quest for better healthand fitness.
