Don’t ever hit the gym with an empty stomach, because you need a lot of energy to perform in cardio or weightlifting session. A couple of hours before you hit the gym is the best time to drink your juice because, in a glass of juice, you’ll get quite complex nutrients, including carbohydrates. Those nutrients will help you to slay your workout, and if you’re planning on gaining muscles you can always add your protein powder to your juices. It will give you energy, without leaving you starving until the end of a session.
3. Post Workout
Workout is one of the most draining activities for our body. After a session of working out, you need to refuel your body, especially your glucose levels. And this is the best time for you to drink your juice. It’s not only refreshing but also can fulfill your nutrient needs before you can sit and have a proper meal.
We also recommend you to drink fresh juice immediately after it’s being processed, because the vitamins and nutrients in a glass of juice can reduce immediately within a couple of minutes. We also suggest you use less sugar, or not use any block of it at all to manage your daily sugar consumption.
