Our tip

Not a chicken fan? You can obviously put whatever you want in your wrap! We advise you to make sure you have a portion of protein in it, either with meat or with vegetable proteins (tofu, lentils, chickpeas…).

Goal: strength

Is it necessary to eat before sport for muscle development? The answer is yes! On the programme: carbohydrates and proteins. Carbohydrates so that you can give it all and to protect your muscles. Yes, as long as your muscles have carbohydrates available as a source of energy, they will use them. More carbohydrates? Then the energy will come from protein, among other things. So if you want to build muscle, this is a situation to avoid.

Then your lunch before the sport must contain protein. Protein is the very basis for building muscle. If you eat enough protein before the workout, you will have enough amino acids available during training to build muscle. Whey Protein is ideal in this case because it is easier to digest than casein. And anyway, your favourite protein shake is mandatory after training.

By the way: to ensure your performance, taking BCAA’s before training can help you achieve your goals. Ideal in capsules or as a drink to provide you with freely available BCAA’s. This means that your body does not need to get its energy from muscle protein when the carbohydrate level is too low at the end of training. Instead, it uses the BCAA’s that you have taken as a supplement.
