Pre/post workout snacks


Recommended Posts

I'm on day 1 and I do Pure Barre classes 4-5 times per week after work, so I'm trying to figure out what would be good to eat for pre/post workouts right before I eat dinner.

I was thinking a hard boiled egg and olives for pre-wo, but post-wo has me a bit stumped since I usually get home around 8:15-8:30, then cook dinner and eat. I'm wondering if jerky (beef or turkey) has too much fat for post-wo, and/or if I really need a post-wo mini meal for something like barre class. I generally burn 350-380 calories per class. 

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

You could try going without the post workout if you don't feel the intensity is there - turkey jerky would be relatively lean so that would work if you wanted to try that.  If you decided to try without the post workout and find you're recovering slower then definitely add it back in.
