How to optimise your energy production
The body produces energy mainly from carbohydrates and fats. Several vitamins and minerals are closely involved in these processes. To be
fit, vary your menus, including foods with a low glycaemic index, good fatty acids and plenty of fruit and vegetables. At the same time, take
it easy and remember to rest. Playing sports also helps you to stay dynamic and active!
How to optimise your energy production
How to relieve leg cramps
To relieve leg cramps, nothing beats prevention: eat a balanced diet, with a proportion of carbohydrates and minerals adapted to your
activity, hydrate sufficiently, warm-up before each physical effort and move regularly. Stretching is the quickest mechanical way to get rid
of a cramp. Make stretching part of your daily routine to reduce recurrence.
What training should I do to combine mind and body health?
On iFIT, you will find a series dedicated to the links between sports performance, the health of the body and the mind. Rich programmes
designed by world-class athletes await you: visualisation, mental conditioning, resilience, anxiety, emotional management and more. The
coaches also talk about their experience as top athletes.
What should you eat after exercise to promote muscle recovery?
Immediately after exercise, drink a mineral-rich drink and eat carbohydrates: a handful of dried fruit, a banana and coconut water, for
example, make an ideal post-sport snack. In the days that follow, increase your protein intake, combining it with high-quality fats. Rest is
also very important to help the muscles regenerate.
Why is it important to warm up before sport?
At the beginning of each exercise session, whatever the activity, spend at least 5 to 15 minutes warming up to prepare your body for the
workout. Keep your heart rate up, mimic the movements you will make during the session progressively and do dynamic stretching.
Warming up is also essential for the mind. Get ready to perform at your best!
Why is it so important to stay hydrated?
The body is made up of about 60% water. Having a good level of hydration is essential to ensure the circulation of nutrients, regulate body temperature and evacuate waste. During exercise, perspiration eliminates a lot of water, which is why you need to drink enough. Stay well hydrated by following a few simple tips!
How do you exercise more consistently?
To be more consistent in your training, you need to put consistency at the top of your priorities. Becoming a habitual
exerciser may seem restrictive at first, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be rewarded by the results you get and stay
motivated. This is the key to self-esteem and performance.
What tips should I follow to improve my mental health and better manage my emotions?
As important as physical fitness, mental health can be maintained through exercises from different practices. Managing
negative emotions, self-esteem, letting go, gratitude, positivity: there are many avenues to explore. Yoga or meditation are
often invaluable for taking a break from the daily grind.
What are the benefits of a morning routine?
Having a morning routine helps you start the day well and be more focused, efficient and productive. By adding new healthy habits to the reflexes you already have, you ensure that you optimise the rest of the day, starting with taking care of yourself before you go out into the world.
What healthy breakfast should you have to start the day with energy?
A breakfast of oatmeal is the perfect way to start the day. Adopt the recipe for overnight oats, a no-cook porridge that has the
advantage of being prepared the day before in less than 5 minutes. When its time to eat it, all you have to do is personalise it with
healthy ingredients, such as seasonal fruit, seeds or dried fruit.
How can I get more fibre in my diet?
To get the full health benefits of fibre, include at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day in your diet and choose whole grains.
Among the foods richest in fibre are dried fruits, seeds, legumes, fruits and vegetables, which can help you stay fit and create healthy
meals. Try to keep well hydrated and make gradual changes to your diet. You'll soon see the benefits.
How can I get into a good mood and be productive in the morning?
After a night’s sleep, the body needs water, natural light and movement, whether it’s stretching, walking or even breathing exercises. Choose a series of easy-to-remember numbers and create your own 3-step morning ritual to oxygenate your brain, get rid of tension, and get the most out of your day: good mood and productivity guaranteed!
