1. Protein up before you run
THE classic early-morning, fasted, steady-state cardio is a great way to burn fat and lose weight. However, during this period you also degrade muscle-mass – leading to a progressive loss. To combat this, boxers should consume a source of protein about 30 minutes before running. Ideally, branched-chain amino acids are a great source of the good stuff! This will stop any form of muscular breakdown that occurs during cardio workouts.
