Stretching – Dynamic Stretching is safe because you are working within your own range of motion and doing a light bounce. This may help you release tension in your muscle and then allow you to stretch further. Do not do Ballistic stretching which are heavy bounces in which you may get tiny tears in your muscle.
Water intake (no caffeine during this time since it is a diuretic) – 1) 16 -24 ounces – 1 hour before; 2) 4 – 8 ounces – 10 minutes before; then 3) 6 – 8 ounces every 20 minutes for hydration. If you follow this guidance you should feel like you have to take a bathroom brake when you get to the studio but not during your workout. TELL ME IF THIS WORKS FOR YOU.
HEAVY FLOW (PMS) – To keep your energy up, add an iron supplement or eat iron rich foods.
Eat Bananas – This will boost your absorption of protein. To make this work for you make sure to couple it with rich protein food. Protein is important for building muscle. The more muscle that you have the higher metabolic rate in return which means more calories burned while resting and working out. Then muscle will replace your fatty areas. YES WE ALL WANT THAT!
