whats your pre-workout meal?
I was just wondering what every one's pre-workout meal is , and how long do you eat your meal before your workout, my pre workout meal is an apple and a 30 g protein shake. I was wondering if i should be eating something more that. or if that is good, i usually eat that 1 hour before my workout. Should i be eating more.

Whether I'm cutting or bulking I never eat anything less than 45 mins before I train. My workouts tend to suffer when I have food in my stomach. While cutting I only have carbs PWO and PPWO. When bulking, everthing is fair game

Well if dieting my preworkout meal is about 90 minutes before and consists of 1/2 cup rice, 2 chicken breast. If bulking than it's still 90 minutes before but consists of 1 cup rice and 2 chicken breasts. I do have a 25gram protein shake 10-20 minutes before my workouts though.

Oh and jurewix...loose the apple in your pre workout meal..it has simple sugars and causes and insulin surge which inhibits muscle growth.

While cutting I eat 1/2 cup of oatmeal or 1 yam and 2 to 3 peices of turkey or chicken and hour before I hit the gym. Bulking 1 to 1 & 1/4 cups oatmeal with 1 tablespoon of natural peanut butter and 3 peices of chicken or turkey abouth 1.5 hours before I get to the gym.

I work out after my first meal of the day. It consists of 8 eggs, 22g whey, 2-3g creatine, ~10-15g dextrose. If i'm in a rush, then i will work out about 30min after my first meal and cut 1-2 eggs out, if not, then i usually wait 45-60 min.

Hey coldstone, should i eliminate all simple sugars before my workout , or should i just eliminate the simple sugars before my preworkout meal, im guessing gatorade is a simple sugar also because i have been drinkin 8 oz before my wokrout. hows 2 packets of oatmeal , and a 30-40 g shake?

Dietin' I'll have 3 cups of oatmeal with water and some cinnamon(gotta have it) , Off season I'll have two Big'N'Tasty and an apple Pie since Mickey D's is right next to the gym I work at.
