Cereal For Pre and Post Workout

Of course, our breakfast meals are great for breakfast, but they are also perfect for pre and post workout/training, for numerous reasons. Here are just a few!

Pre-workout

  • The combination of carbohydrates and protein will give you sustained energy, so after a busy day, you’re going to have a lot more energy after eating a breakfast meal such as ours and for at least a couple of hours after. For all of you with busy lifestyles and long working hours, this is so important!
  • As a result of the above, you’ll also benefit from increased performance. The energy will give you a stronger focus leading to a better workout or training session, which will lead to better results. We’ve all had those sessions where we feel lethargic and underperform if you address this and have the right pre-workout meal you can really see an improvement

Post workout

  • Cereal can also be great for after your workout, as it will help to replenish your muscle glycogen, so after all that energy has been expended, a good balance of carbohydrates and protein will help to rebuild those energy stores. This is important when you have other tasks to perform after your workout, to ensure you don’t feel too fatigued
  • Similarly, a higher protein cereal such as ours will aid in muscle repair. Muscle tissues will be damaged when you exercise, and the role of protein is to help repair these tissues. This can help to increase your muscle mass which will, in turn, raise your metabolism, making it easier for you to burn body fat.

In both instances having the balance of carbohydrates and protein are going to leave you feeling full up and satiated, which will help you to perform well both during and after exercise.

No energy crashes and scrapping around for a quick sugar fix 30 minutes after you’ve finished training!
