Guys I’m in need of some help. I’m 15 and have been working out for about 5 months. However, being a teenager I can’t really control any of my meals, I basically just try and make smart choices by not eating junk food and stuff like that. So what tips can you guys give me, and what are some good pre and post workout snacks?
PS: I either workout first thing in the morning or right after school if that makes a difference.[/quote]
Well I’m 17 and I know where your coming from. Try hard to keep track of your calories and if your goal is to get bigger/stronger, try and get a surplus of good, clean caloies. Don’t drink pop or eat too much junk food, once and a while is ok but not all the time. Eat snacks at school. Put shit in your locker like granola bars, protien bars/shakes, pretzels, etc… Also, before workout meals… Oatmeal is a good choice, slow burning, gives you plenty of energy (or something with protien), and after workout meals should consist of protien, I’d say the best choice would be whey protien shake.
