Have You Skipped Your Workout? Continue With Your Normal Workout Routine

Question / Dilemma: Got badly caught up in work and didn’t go to the gym for three days? Ab kya karu?

Answer: Don’t worry. Just because you missed the gym doesn’t mean you need to spend an additional hour in the gym for the remaining days of the week. Stick to your one hour workout routine, focus on your diet and you’ll be on the track. Remember to eat well before and after working out. Have nutrition dense food – the right combination of proteins and carbohydrates that promotes muscle gain.
