Here are 5 Habits that will help improve your workouts
1- Get Enough Quality Sleep
Sleep is one of the most important things to not only push hard in your workouts but to recover efficiently, which ultimately dictates the quality and speed of your results. 
If you want to be able to train harder and more frequently with greater recovery and results, then you want to make sure that you’re getting enough sleep every night.
2- Hydrate
Hydration plays a critical role in both physical and mental performance.
However, far too often, individuals think that it’s only important to focus on drinking enough water immediately before the workout. The truth is that maintaining proper hydration is a 24-hour process. You also need to make sure that you’re consuming enough essential electrolytes, such as sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium.
3- Have a Quality Pre Workout Meal
Fasted training has become a popular trend in fitness over the past few years, but the simple truth of the matter is that not properly fueling prior to your workouts can limit performance and endurance, increase the onset of fatigue, and increase protein breakdown. Therefore, it’s a good idea to have a pre workout meal an hour or two before training.
It would be good to at least have a whey protein shake before training, or (at the very least) a serving of essential amino acids, like Her BCAA/EAA or His BCAA/EAA
4- Review Your Previous Workout
In order to build muscle and gain strength, you have to employ progressive overload, which essentially entails forcing your muscles to do more work than they have previously.
And, the only way to know with relative certainty that you’re actually doing more than you previously have is to track your workouts and then review those numbers before you training session.
5- Warm Up Properly
The final part to making the most of your workout is to perform a proper warm up. Warm ups serve to prime the muscles, joints, ligaments, and connective tissue as well as the nervous system for the intense work ahead. This allows your body (both mentally and physically) to be “firing on all cylinders” when it’s time to get to work.
