    Arrow 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.

    I eat either 2 cans of tuna, or 2 chicken breasts, and 1 cup of brown rice, about 1.5 hours before workout. Then a pro shake on the drive to the gym.

    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?
