When getting back into the swing of an exercise routine, it’s important to do some research. Find some strategies that will help you get the most out of your hard work in the gym. With that in mind, here are three easy ways to improve your workout routine:
 

Stretch

You’ve probably known about the benefits of stretching since middle school gym class. Still, a ton of people who work out don’t stretch! Stretching is huge for staying flexible and helping the body recover from workouts quicker. Dynamic stretches like high knees, lunges, arm swings and leg swings are perfect before exercise. After exercise, try some static stretches like reaching to touch your toes or butterfly stretch.


Have a Post-Workout Protein Shake

After exercise, protein is essential for helping muscles recover. Try having a scoop of BiPro protein powder or a bottle of BiPro Protein Water within 30 minutes of finishing a workout.


Chart Your Progress

Recording your results is a great way to keep track of how you improve over time. If you’re doing cardio exercise like running or biking, set a goal for how long you want to go or how many miles you want to travel. Then, keep a log of how you do every time. The same strategy can be applied to strength training. Record how many reps you do and how much weight you lift for various exercises.
