Pre-Workout Tips & Tricks
Before, during and after a workout. It’s totally been my thing lately. Before I workout, I add Zicam Total Immune Crystals to my water bottle for extra support of my immune system. Many people don’t realize this, but immunity function actually starts in the gut and these crystals have probiotics that are so important for your digestive health, so you can get a little bit more out of your water.
I’m a big fan of stretching before a workout session to be able to prepare your body for working out. Water and stretching are something that every nutritionist and trainer will recommend, so I try my best to do both. They both make a huge difference in the way I feel, look and perform during a workout.
Aside from stretching, you must do your warm-ups as part of your pre workout routine to raise your heart rate and let your blood flow to prepare your muscles in a series of range of motion- prior to your exercise routine to prevent injury.
Take your pre workout supplements to give your body an extra boost and energy as you exercise.
One good supplement is Beta Alanine. Beta Alanine is a popular supplement among athletes and fitness enthusiasts. It is most effective in exercises lasting one to several minutes. It can help reduce fatigue while increasing exercise capacity and muscle endurance. (Source: Healthline)
Check with your Doctor or Nutritionist before taking such supplement.
I’ve been loving raw almond butter before I workout– I’m on a real kick. It sort of feeds my engine.
Not going to lie: I’ll sneak a couple of spoonfuls of almond butter ( typically after lunch ) for a little boost.
If I don’t have almond butter, I’ll go for something quick like Zicam’s Total Immune Melts. The amino acids & electrolytes in these tiny, delicious orange drops are awesome and paired with your favorite post-workout drink and make replenishing after a sweat session easy, peasy.

A scheduled workout ( aka working out with a babe ) can be a game changer. I started making my workouts a meeting/priority on my calendar. And by inviting someone along, I’ve eliminated any excuse not to work out! It also helps that TSC Bombshell Body effective workouts are 27 minutes: A good workout that is quick & effective. And you can do them anywhere!
Cooldown is also as important as pre-workout so your heart and muscles cool down slowly. While stretching is a good way to cool down, You can make use of foam rollers as foam rolling works on loosening the muscle tissue plus the connective tissue better than just stretching.
I am not one of those people that can push through a workout without quality sleep. Sleep is my number one beauty tip and without it my workout is just not the same. If I don’t get at least 7 hours, I won’t workout.
Jewel once said, “If it’s between sleep and the gym, I’ll choose sleep.”
YES. Me too.
Sleep is always my main priority. Especially between crazy workouts.
Working out has been found to be beneficial for our nervous system as well. So, make it a habit!
