The work-life balance in today’s world is something that’s becoming more and more difficult with every passing day, the pandemic situation, professional life, work pressure, securing your job, personal life, taking care of your family, and so much more are being served on everyone’s plate and it’s just so tiresome in all the ways. Life has become such that taking a break feels like a task with a thousand things still running in the mind. Thankfully, people are still a little inclined towards keeping their bodies healthy. They buy some time from themselves, hit the gym or a yoga class, swim, play a sport, or go for a walking/running session in the parks. Most people prefer going to the gym because it has all the equipment and professional guidance that one needs to keep their body in good shape. People are also awakening to the facts of eating healthy and drinking an adequate amount of water to keep their bodies healthy. That’s a good thing.
Well, the thought of exercising or working out for many people is restricted to having a nice body and not a healthy body. They go a little careless in that sense. There are so many things that people in your family going to the gym would be careless about, but those are some things that have to be taken care of the most. Let’s take your brother, for instance. He might be going to the gym to keep his body in shape and his muscles all strong, maybe to gain or to shed weight; everyone has different reasons to hit the gym and work out. Well then, it becomes your responsibility to ensure that he takes care of these things before heading to the gym, keep online rakhi shopping a little aside right now, and give him a rakhi gift of wisdom, knowledge, and awareness because that’s more important than anything else.
You can get him a rakhi gift anytime these days. Getting stuff delivered anytime and anywhere is not a mammoth task anymore. It takes a few minutes after selection, it’s as easy as it could ever be because these days, online shopping sites and applications or online gift delivery services have the feature of delivering products on the same day or the next day, so technically, you have ample time to do all that rakhi shopping. Educating your brother about simple things like what all needs to be done before he goes for a workout, what all to do after, during, how to take care of his skin, and his diet, there are great things whose information about the correct processes could turn out to be a great gift for your brother this rakhi. So here are a few things you can make your brother aware of that he shall be taking care of before starting his workout session.
- Hydrate, Honey: He should make sure that his body is adequately hydrated before he starts working out. A workout session involves a lot of vigorous exercises, hence, a lot of sweating. A dehydrated body might cause muscle cramps, instant fatigue, dizziness, and even fainting, so he should make sure that he takes enough water during the entire day, especially sometime before he heads for his workout session. An immediate workout session after having water is also not recommended as it might result in nausea or gut pain of any sort. Having enough water 15-20 minutes before working out is a must. Also, take proper food with vitamins, protein and resistant starch sources. Check different types of resistant starch and vitamins.
- Keep a Good Sleep: Before working out, he should ensure his body gets enough rest and good sleep. A sleep-deprived body and in a state of external or internal unrest could turn the workout against you. It would make him unproductive, and he wouldn’t be able to put as much effort as he wanted to, which would frustrate him further. He would sometimes try to skip the workout session, would try to do an easy workout and not what is required, as so many more things that are not exactly what he would want out of him. So make sure his body isn’t sleep deprived or at unrest.
- Snack Attack: Your brother shouldn’t have a large meal right before a workout, but he can grab a pre-workout snack which would give his body some extra fuel for the vigorous exercises he’d be performing during the workout. A protein bar or a toasted loaf of whole wheat or any other bread with vegan butter on top of it in medium quantity could be a good pre-workout snack for him. His body should be out of nutrition in any way, food provides energy, and workouts need energy, so that a quick snack would be great for the perfect workout session.
- Don’t Dress to Impress: You should make sure that he should keep the fashion and style aside while heading for a workout and concentrate more on a comfortable kind of dressing. You can wear printed leggings to look more stylish. Though these days, many brands are coming up with amazing stylish workout collections, and they are a good option too because they ensure that those clothes provide you comfort and style at the same time. Consider the clothing material before getting yourself clothes, especially for a workout, and they should be stretchable and sweat absorbing because literally, the wrong choice of clothes during a workout session might result in sprains, wardrobe malfunctions, and a lot worse. He should go for comfort more than just style.
These ‘before workout’ tips for your brother are universal, and not only him, you, your family, friends, and everyone in the world should take care of these. These are helpful and would strengthen the core of your workout session to a great extent. Taking care of these points would make your workout better, hence, better and faster results of all the vigorous spine-shaking exercises you do to get the perfect and fit body.
