Drinking plenty of water before your workout is key to keeping your energy levels up so you can get maximum results from your workout. Sip water as you’re getting your gym kit on, or enjoy a smoothie using coconut water as your pre-workout snack. And make sure you keep hydrated during and after your session as well.
Did you know that water regulates your body temperature, keeps your joints lubricated and helps move nutrients into your bloodstream so you have the energy you need to exercise?
A simple tip to know whether you're hydrated enough is to check your pee. If it's clear or light yellow you're doing well. If not, up your intake of water or try a hydrating green smoothie like this one!
Hydrating Green Smoothie
- 1 cup coconut water (choose a 100% coconut water brand like innocent)
- 1/4 cup spinach
- 1/4 cup chopped broccoli or kale
- 1/2 a cucumber
- 1 orange
- Small knob of ginger (peeled if not organic)
Simply whiz it all up in a blender for a refreshing and hydrating energy boost before your workout.
