YOU’VE GOT QUESTIONS, WE’VE GOT ANSWERS
How many days per week do I need to work out?
Depending on your health and fitness goals, you'll need to commit to a minimum of 3 days of exercise each week to see results.
What should I eat before a workout?
Eating an easily digested carbohydrate an hour or so before you hit the gym ensures that you'll have enough energy in the tank to get through your program.
If, however, you exercise first thing in the morning, eating before your workout may not be an option. Experiment with the types of food and the timing of your pre-workout meal to discover what works best for you.
What should I eat after a workout?
Eating after a workout is important. You need to replenish your glycogen stores and 'feed' the muscles that you've just trained. Sports nutritionists suggest that you eat a small snack consisting of protein and easily digested carbohydrates within about an hour of training and then your next meal an hour or two later.
How quickly will I see the results of my training?
Expect to see the results within two to three weeks. Changes in body composition often take longer to notice; the more consistent you are with your workouts and the closer you adhere to your nutrition plan, the sooner the results will become noticeable.
Which should I do first; cardio or weights?
It's different for every individual. It comes down to what the person's fitness goals are.It is better for you to have consistency in your exercise than to worry about the two extra calories you might burn from doing weights or cardio first. Analyze your goals and plan your workouts to reach those goals.
