Are You Making These 5 Post Workout Mistakes?

Then, you're probably missing out on best results!

1) You skip stretching

Stretching is the most important post-workout activity. You'll be doing a horrible mistake by skipping your stretch after every workout. Doing this could actually put you at a risk of many injuries. Also, stretching regularly helps you bring down your stress hormone.

2)You're missing out on shower

Ladies, missing out on showers after your workout will make you the most unwanted person in the room. And we're sure you don't want that. So do not forget to take a shower after the workout. Also, it can lead to bacterial infections if you don't take a bath after your workout.

3) Consuming alcohol right after the gym

Drinking alcohol immediately after the workout will ruin all your hard work in gym. It will dehydrate your body and slow down muscle recovery. If you really feel like taking up alcohol right after the gym then wait for at least 30 minutes.

4) You don't change your gym clothes

Your gym outfit might be the most comfy but you need to change into clean clothes. Your gym leggings might retain sweat which can lead to yeast infections if you don't change it right after the gym.

5) Not getting enough sleep

Being sleep deprived can be one the biggest reasons that you're not getting results in gym. One should always take 7-8 hours of sleep per day. A good sleep is a must after an intense workout.
