What you will do after training is especially important for regenerative processes. Therefore, at this time, it is worth paying attention to what we eat, what we drink, and also what activities we perform. Unfortunately, many people do not pay attention to this, and this is bad since they do not get the maximum results from training. If you want to know what should not be done after a workout, read on.
Going to a disco (party)
Many young guys love to go to the gym on Friday, do intensive training, and after that they go to a disco. They think that now I will get pumped up and look pumped up (the body will swell for a few hours from pumping). And then you will drink beer, eat chips, salted nuts. And drink other alcoholic beverages. Then from such training and rest will only harm, and if you are still going to rest like this until the morning, it is better not to go to the gym at all on this day! And in general, if you decide to seriously engage, it is better to avoid such parties, each such party throws you back a few training sessions!
Theoretically, drinking a small glass of beer or a glass of wine during dinner is not something very scary and a problem. The consumption of large amounts of ethanol (alcohol) will probably already serve as great harm to the regeneration of muscles and the body. Why? Alcohol first interferes with the process of filling muscle glycogen, second, it disrupts the balance of water balance in the body, and third, it has a bad effect on the course of anabolic processes that occur in muscle tissue.
A campaign in the sauna
Going to the sauna, after training, seems to be something desirable. They say that after a sauna a person feels good, vigorously. It is not so. Going to the sauna after a workout is bad! During this period, the body needs to be saturated with water, cooled, and not heated and increased fluid loss, also, you load the heart muscle even more. Going to the sauna after a hard workout can essentially impair regeneration, slow down protein synthesis, increase catabolism, and slow the addition of fluids, electrolytes, and lost glycogen. The best option is to just take a cool shower.
ome people train in the evening, after training they come home and refuse to eat dinner or even a light snack for fear that consuming something before bed will cause an increase in the level of fat tissue. This belief is wrong. Firstly, the fact of eating food in the evening is not at all more dangerous for the body than eating food in the morning or at lunch. Secondly, refusal of food after exercise is negatively reflected in the regeneration, catabolism of muscle proteins is enhanced. During this period, the body needs to deliver fluid, protein and carbohydrates.
Intake of energy drinks
A cup of cappuccino will not harm anyone after exercise, but excessive amounts of caffeine and other energy drinks are not advisable during this period. A high dose of these substances with an invigorating effect on the nervous system can potentially increase cortisol levels by inhibiting the regeneration process. If the training takes place after dinner in the evening hour, the use of power engineers at this time can disturb your sleep, it will be difficult for you to fall asleep (it will disturb the quality of sleep), which is also not good!
