Which is More Important – Exercise or Nutrition?
Let’s Take a Look…
Which is more important, exercise or nutrition?
This is the question you should be asking yourself if you want to get the most out of your workouts.
Some experts will argue that diet and nutrition has a greater impact on bone mass and strength than exercise, while others recommend that even a little exercise each week is enough to keep you healthy without changing what you eat.
We would say both are equally as important!
So whether you’re a serious athlete or a complete beginner, you should be monitoring your exercise AND what you consume pre and post-workout. This will not only help you to achieve the results during exercise, but also aid in recovery.
After all, why sweat your back out in the gym if your body is deprived of the nutrition to recover?
You are What you Eat!
There is one solution which doesn’t involve trying to eat 50 chicken breasts a day – supplements!
Supplements such as pre-workout drinks and post-workout recovery aides can really help you to get the most out of your training. So with this in mind, we here at Sports Involve have made you a list of the best supplements to give your workouts the boost they need!
