I’m Ruth Sharif, a nutritional therapist and an enthusiastic barreworks studio member! When it comes pre and post workout fuel, there are so many different sources of advice, it can difficult to know exactly what we should be doing to get the best results. So let’s have a look at some principles and practical suggestions (tried and tested by me also!), that will help optimise your barre training but won’t compromise the hard work you have put in and negate the fat burning benefits.
It is worth saying that the premise for a nutritionally sound diet is similar, whether you are training or not.
Your own personal training goals, as well as the time of day that you plan to exercise, will then determine the balance between the different food groups.
