Workouts are important to stay fit,but there are certain simple things one must follow to ensure that you gain the benefits of your fitness regime. These simple do’s and don’ts will help you stay fit.
- Sleep enough
It is ideal to sleep 8 hours a day. Lack of proper sleep will increase the levels of Ghrelin,a hormone which increases appetite along with decrease in the levels of leptin, a hormone which makes you feel full. This results in overeating.
2. Food clock
Another important thing to be followed is the time when you eat. Ensure that you are in a free stomach before workout or else it becomes difficult to exercise and makes you feel nauseous. It can even lead to stomach pains, cramps and diarrhoea.
3. Control alcohol consumption
Alcohol is stored as fat in the muscle and not as energy. It also dehydrates the human body and makes the kidney produce more urine. A person who exercises after drinking alcohol sweats more and it leads to reduced performance.
4. Avoid wearing sweaty clothes
One simple mistake that most of the people make is wearing sweaty clothes during workout. This can lead to skin rashes accumulation of dirt in the pores and other skin disorders.
5. Avoid having pain killers
Having pain Killers before workout will block the production of enzymes which plays a vital role in the protection of stomach and intestinal linings.
