Eat right

• Have a cup of black coffee without sugar before the workout. This will increase your ability to exercise by at least 30 per cent

• Eat a small amount of complex carbohydrate or protein-rich food 30-45 minutes before a heavy workout

• After you are done, have glucose, bananas or fresh fruit juice. Follow this up with protein and complex carbohydrates in 10-20 minutes
