Stretching is an essential step at the end of your workout. Indeed, it allows you to relax your muscles, boost your blood circulation and recover well. Be careful however, do not force too much all at once after your workout, just enjoy smooth and gentle movements for 3 to 4 minutes.

Your meal should be composed of vegetable or animal protein, carbohydrates, and vegetables (preferably cooked, for easier digestion).
