If you want to reap all the benefits of HIIT, know that what you do outside of the gym matters too.
Fuelling your body well before and after HIIT sessions can help you get the most out of your training.
Protein will prime your muscles for intense exercise.
During intense activity, most of these glycogen or energy stores in our body become depleted.
Intense exercise also breaks down muscle tissue. This means you also need protein after a workout to help repair and rebuild damaged muscles.
