Peri-Workout nutrition, also referred to as intra-workout nutrition is one of the hottest topics in most training and nutritional circles today. Dietary choices around the time of a workout can have profound effects on the quality of a training session as well as the adaptions that take place. Whether your goal is to improve maximum strength, lose a few pounds, or gain some lean muscle mass it is good to have an understanding what you put in your body can do regarding training adaptions.
