Nutrition for getting sexy arms isn’t too complex. Especially if you ignore all the fads.
However, there are certain situations when basic nutrition just won’t do-some advanced techniques are called for.
Working out early in the day is one example here. Since your body has been starving all night, proper nutrition with precision is mandatory.
Thus, without further ado, here are some tips for early morning workout nutrition:
1. Drink water before anything else. You have to rehydrate your dehydrated body ASAP. You also need to drink enough water so that you can digest breakfast.
2. Exercising 3 hours after rising. You can go ahead and have a full breakfast here. Make sure it’s balanced, though. Include a protein, carbohydrate, fat and vegetable source. Doing so will maximize the amount of nutrients going to your active tissues before working out.
3. When the workout is 1 hour upon waking. You need some carbs and some fat to slow down the digestion of the carbs. A good choice here would be a peanut butter sandwich. And make sure the bread is whole grain, no high fructose corn syrup allowed!
4. Exercising 10 minutes after rising. You are going to need some liquid or gel-like carbohydrates here. You could have a supplement like power gel or Gu. Or you could make your own shake with maltodextrin or dextrose and casein protein. It’s essential you have fast digesting carbs before exercising so that you don’t black out. Blacking out is not worth it no matter how badly you want sexy arms!
I understand that you may have a very hectic and “tight” schedule. However, I strongly recommend against working out 10 minutes upon waking up. It’s extremely difficult for the female body to digest any type of food or supplement within such a short time frame. You’re likely to burn through a lot of muscle if you do this. Not good if you want to get rid of arm fat and get sexy arms! [youtube:9aBoLYnkUIo?version=3;[link:How to tone your arms];http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9aBoLYnkUIo?version=3&feature=related]
