Pre-workout drinks are great to help boost energy levels and help stamina and strength whilst you're working out. Post-workout drinks help repair wear and tear of muscles and replenish glycogen stores to fuel the body.

Why This Works
This drink is loaded with natural sugars and is rich in bioavailable compounds like lycopene and vitamins A and C. It is also an electrolyte balancer. A study on 20 male cyclists supplemented with watermelon puree over two weeks showed that it enhanced endurance exercise performance and increased post-exercise antioxidant levels. Consume it 45 minutes before working out or 5-10 minutes after workout. Recipe and image borrowed from Stylecraze.
