When you get off work and head straight to a brewery workout, you’re probably going to want to eat a snack so you can have the best workout possible. And, depending on what kind of workout you’re headed to, you should fuel your body appropriately.
So whether you’re off to a light yoga flow or participating in a high-intensity bootcamp, we’ve figured out what you should eat to perform your best.
If you're doing a lighter workout
You don’t need the same energy you’d need for a three mile run, so enjoying a salad with chicken or fish will make sure your stomach isn’t growling through class, but also won’t leave you feeling stuffed. If you’re starving right before you flow it out, Shape Magazine suggests you stick to light snacks that will digest quickly, like a banana or a handful of almonds.
If you're running
Something that’s high-carb, low-fat and low-fiber will make sure that you have energy, but aren’t weighed down by your body’s digestive process. According to Runner’s World, a bowl of cereal with skim milk, or a banana with a few tablespoons of your favorite nut butter will make sure you’re good to hit the pavement.
If you're doing a high-intensity workout
Ace Fitness recommends small snacks that will give you energy without weighing you down. Two hours before your workout, try some Greek yogurt with granola or whole wheat toast with peanut butter and bananas. If you’re peckish right before the workout, go more carb-heavy and save the protein for after the class.
What's your favorite way to fuel up for a brewery workout?
Remember, no matter what kind of workout you’re trying, be sure to hydrate with plenty of water before, during and after the workout. And of course, be sure you have room left to enjoy the beer you worked for.
