Anonymous said: Hey, I just wanna let you know that I love your videos they're really helpful and i would like to know if you can give me some advices. So basically my question Is that is better to work out in the morning or at night? And is better to eat before working out or after? Thank you so much XX

Hi there! So sorry it took me a while to write back! First off, thank you so much for your lovely compliments! I really appreciate it, it’s so very nice of you! You should work out whenever you feel is the right time for you. There is no such thing as a “better time”. Some people feel better working out at 6 am (I’m not one of those) and some people feel more comfortable working out at night. For me it doesn’t matter when, only if it’s not in the early morning. You should always eat before you work out, even if it’s something small like a smoothie or bar and wait about 30+ minutes before you begin your workout, so your body can handle digesting the food better then if you started exercising right away. You should also eat something afterwards, to give your body energy again. You don’t need to eat right away, but you shouldn’t wait longer than 2 hours to fuel your body. Always remember 3 bigger meals, and 2-3 snacks a day is a really good guideline for keeping your body fueled and ready to go. I hope that helped, and please don’t hesitate to ask anymore questions :) Have a lovely day!

It was not the best, but expected from the first competition of the season. Still need to get into good shape, but mentally I felt better than all the years before, which was a big improvement for me! Hopefully the next one is better :)
