I have moved to a different city and joined the gym yesterday, last night my workout consisted of 15 minutes running on the treadmill at 10 mph with a 3% incline and 3 sets of leg presses, 35 repetitions per set at 110lbs where 1 set is fast push out and slow in (for power). I forgot to add that the rest time in between each set is 15 seconds, I wanted to max out my heart rate, it worked, I could hear it more than the music playing.
now the thing is I am at work and my eyes are drooping...I haven't had nutrition after working out, I have had a lot of water. But for breakfast I had oats and that is about it.
these are my questions at the moment, sorry if I have bunched too many in to one:
- Should I take things like Coconut water post workout for electrolyte replenishment?
- Can I take those electrolyte supplements during my workout? because I sweat very heavily and loose a lot during my workout.
- Should I save taking things like protein supplements for the next morning or take them sometime after my workout?
- What do I immediately need replenishing after my workout to lower fatigue, water being the obvious and minerals etc.. I know the body acts as a sponge for sometime after working out so it is better during that time to take things like protein, but I would really like to stop/lower my fatigue.
I sleep for 6 hours a day, usually no more and definitely no less.
I have read articles on these questions, but here I can describe my workouts and get a more suitable answer, thank you all in advance for your help.
