7 WORST Things to Do After Your Workout

Regardless of whether you can shower right away or not, change your clothes, socks, and shoes immediately to keep your muscles warm and loose.
This promotes good circulation, which aids the recovery process after a workout.
It always feels good to get out of sneakers after a tough workout, but be sure to put on a supportive pair of shoes or sandals if your legs or feet are feeling especially spent.Plan some light activity throughout the day, even if you are headed to work. Plan to drink and eat after your workouts, preferably within 20 to 30 minutes of finishing.
If you are headed right to work, or have other commitments immediately after a workout, pack a cooler with some healthy snacks beforehand so you can grab and go—possibly even eating in the car.
Be sure your snacks include protein, a little fat, and some complex carbohydrates for replenishing energy needs. Good options include low-fat chocolate milk, a turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread, almonds, fruit, or yogurt.Get up, walk around, do some gentle stretches while standing, and breathe deeply.
