Rough mistakes not to make after training

There’s nothing worse if a strictly adhered diet and hard workouts don’t bring the long-awaited results. If the language of the scales doesn’t creep lower than we expect, it’s time to suspect: we’re doing something wrong. Forget the “I’m not eating, I’m not running out!” types of sentences!

You are afraid of carbs

The truth is that our body also needs protein and carbs after a hearty workout. Many people only drink protein shakes after a workout because they “fiberize” or are simply afraid of getting fat. During exercise, the body’s glycogen stores (glycogen stored in muscle) are dangerously depleted, and if we don’t replace them ourselves, the body solves them from elsewhere — at the expense of the protein we take in, or worse, by breaking down amino acids in the muscles. So omitting the post-workout carbs from the smoothie certainly significantly hinders the effective transformation of our body.

You skip the stretch

The recovery and rebuilding phase of your muscles is key to both shape and stamina. Hard training is not enough, you also need to pay attention to stretching. Many people see it as a waste of time, even though it is with this that we can steer our muscles towards a more shapely and healthier development. Not to mention that among those who neglect stretching, a strong muscle fever appears the next day, which can often be worse than a five-minute run after a workout.

You do not change your training program

Habit is great master, and even our bodies abuse it in a gallant way. The workout plan that initially brought development suddenly “changes” itself. The reason is simple: the muscle gets used to that load and will no longer respond to weights as it used to. We don’t do anything wrong, but we need variety. Ideally, enter a new set of tasks every 3-4 weeks. It can be easier or harder, the point is that new stimuli reach the muscles.

You miss the shower

What is the first task after training? The shower. Surprisingly, it is described, but it is not clear to many that the sweaty body should be cleaned immediately and hidden in dry clothing. This is because clothes soaked in sweat retain moisture, which can be a source of fungal infections in addition to colds. And one illness leads to a week-long miss in the tournament. And relapse results in extra meals, extra weights.

You’re not resting enough

Just as our phone doesn’t work without recharging, so does our organization’s “battery”. Of course, we don’t have to look for an outlet, if we want top shape again, a bed will do as well. An adult body needs 7-8 hours of sleep a day, especially on a training day. Do not give this sleep time below, as your body may later have relentless revenge for the stolen rest time.
