Are you struggling to combat post exercise fatigue?
Say goodbye to that dreaded feeling with these 5 simple tips!
Regular exercise increases energy levels as the heart and lungs are stimulated. Although, after exercising we often then start to feel tired due to reduced energy levels.
Hydration: Dehydration is one of the main reasons people suffer from fatigue during and after exercise. Keeping your body hydrated is essential to keep up energy levels sustained throughout exercising. Re-hydrating with water alone will not have the same effect as taking one sachet of Totum Sport but why? Totum Sport is an electrolyte supplement that provides all 78 minerals and electrolytes to your body that is lost via sweat and metabolism. Taking one sachet of Totum Sport 10-20 minutes before exercise will help you retain water and help to prevent dehydration during exercise.
Exercise routine: Exercise regularly keeps you healthy and strong, however over exercising can weaken the immune system and leave us feeling exhausted. It is important to listen to your body and ensure that the exercises that you are doing make you feel good and don’t put too much strain onto body.
Carbohydrates: Glucose is the body’s main source of energy. When you exercise you use up a lot of glycogen in the body that needs to be restored. One way this can be done is by consuming carbohydrates 30 minutes post exercise which will help to replenish glucose and help prevent tiredness. Taking one sachet of Totum Sport immediately after exercise will enhance the absorption and utilisation of carbohydrates in your post workout meal helping your body to function better and help to reduce post exercise fatigue.
Rest days: Rest days are an essential part of your training routine to prevent the muscles from burning out and restoring your energy levels to help you perform better in your next training session. One sachet of Totum Sport can also be taken on rest days it contains minerals that can help strengthen the immune system, combating the risk of illness and fatigue.
Sleep: You should be sleeping around (7-9 hours) every night (7-9 hours) to help your muscles relax and regenerate.
