Cooling down after a workout is an extremely important part of training that lots of people often neglect. Basically, you bring your body back to the state it was before the workout, releasing the tension. When you skip this part, your muscles shorten and they lose their elasticity, so it is easier to get injured later on.
Nutrition is everything, whether you’re an athlete or not. When you’re working out regularly, you need all the right nutrients in order to function well, from protein, carbohydrates and fats to vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Try to eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, avoid processed foods and always stay hydrated!
