If you train for an hour or so in the morning and then again in the afternoon, you should eat the right foods to recover sufficiently in the meantime. Learn more about best workout recovery foods.
Before the day of training it’s important that you have sufficient levels of glycogen stored in your liver and muscles, which will provide energy. The night before, have a balanced meal rich in carbohydrate, such as brown rice or wholemeal pasta, and moderate protein such as chicken, eggs or fish, but low in fat.
Try to have a similar meal about two of three hours before your second workout or regular snacks. Keep in mind that you have to eat the meal at least two hours before exercise.
Thirty minutes to one hour after training, have a drink or snack that’s rich in carbohydrate or protein to help your muscles recover.
Hydration is also a crucial factor. Sip on water throughout the day; although the volume will depend on the amount you sweat during training. If you are exercising for more than an hour, consuming a drink containing carbohydrate and electrolytes can help.
