That is why we give you some fitness tips and information about the different supplements for sports.

Keep a log

Everything starts with establishing a goal . Would you like to lose weight, build muscle mass, improve your endurance, or something else? Write it down in a log. In this log you can also keep track of the statistics of your training sessions. You can make it as detailed as you wish. Write down your starting weight, how many days a day you exercise, how much weight you lose each week, etc. This is not only useful to keep track of your progress, it also has a motivating effect. Just be careful not to use your weight as the sole measure of progress.

If you often exercise, your muscles grow, and muscles make you heavier.

1. Don’t forget your proteins

After a workout, it is very important to further strengthen your muscles with the right nutrients. So take a snack rich in protein, or eat a meal with enough protein.

In certain circumstances, such as during intensive sports and training, an extra source of protein may be indicated. Whey protein is ideal for this: not only does this protein have an excellent composition with all essential amino acids in a good ratio, it is also well digested and absorbed. Choose a high-quality whey protein preparation in the form of an isolate, such as  Mannavital Whey Protein 94 Platinum , which is also free of sugar, artificial sweeteners and flavors. Etixx High Protein Shake Vanilla contains 95% pure whey protein isolate that supports optimal growth and rapid recovery of muscle mass.
