Madrid Personal Trainer David Hughes gives you your Secret Top Pre workout foods.




Lentils are an extraordinary source of carbs, protein, B vitamins, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, calcium, and copper. They will give you an incredible pre workout boost. If you´re not used to them start with just a few or you may have a touch of gas that will put a funny spin on the Kick Ass club workouts! 😉


The monounsaturated fats discovered in almonds and different nuts have super omega-3s and omega-6s. These gonna give you a much neede pre workout boost!


Oats are full of fibre. Subsequently, the carbs are discharged into your bloodstream slowly, keeping your energy levels consistent throughout your workout. They also hold B vitamins, which are invigorating, anxiety lowering, and switch carbs into energy


The magnesium in yogurt can give you an energy kick for your workout and is an exceptional choice before both cardio and weightlifting sessions.

Trail Fruit and Nut Mix

Trail blend is an extraordinary source of phosphorous and zinc. The first aids muscle development and energy, and the second speeds up muscle recovery. Be careful of the amount, more than one pack can leave you bloated.

Bananas And Other Fruits

Although it is widely believed that the sugar in bananas can make you fat, it is actually a very digestible form of carbohydrate. Bananas are packed with potassium, they aid in maintaining proper nerve and muscle function. Since your body doesn’t store this nutrient for long periods, an intense workout is enough to make your potassium level drop. Apples, peaches, pineapples, and grapes are also good choices for an energizing snack.


Ok youre right, I was PAID to write this! haha, only joking!..

Tyramine and phenylethylamine found in chocolate can provide you with an energy boost for an intense exercise session. However, chocolate is packed with sugar, calories, fat, and caffeine, so don’t go overboard. Your best bet is dark chocolate; it contains the fewest calories and the most antioxidants. I favor the posho Lindt choccies from corte Inglés.
