Reach the peak of athletic performance. Take your game to the next level by learning some fitness essentials. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
  • Eat more carbs

    Supply the body with efficient energy fuel found in grains, starchy vegetables, fruits, low-fat dairy products, and carbohydrate-replacement drinks

  • Obey your thirst

    Drink fluids before, during, and after exercise to prevent dehydration, but avoid overdrinking, too

  • Take a multivitamin

    When your diet isn’t enough, extra vitamins and minerals will help your body get the nutrition it needs for exercise

  • Check out creatine monohydrate

    Take 15 to 20 grams a day of this supplement for five or six days to improve performance of high-intensity, short-duration exercise (like sprinting) or sports with alternating low- and high-intensity efforts

  • Try vitamin C

    Take 400 mg a day for several days before and after intense exercise to reduce pain and speed muscle strength recovery
