    IMOP, its probably the junk load that is doing much more for your look than the sodium manipulation. But I also spike sodium prior to the stage.....I just dont ever deplete prior.

  2. Oh yeah dude for sure the junk load is doing more.. I just figured the sodium manipulation helps with the water

I have always heard a pre on a empty stomach increases the effectivness
    Totally know where you're coming from...I workout same time as you...and also didn't want food to hinder any of the energy/focus of the PreWO...for several years...then about a year ago started mega dosing BCAA's pre/intra, made some progress...the last 6 weeks or so have been experimenting by eating an apple & cottage cheese (sometimes also whey) at 5am, downing a preWO at 5:15ish, gym at 5:40 & using about 10-15g bcaa's intra...better energy, better workouts by far & making progress at a faster clip...wish I had tried this years ago...

    Now that sound interesting.... I have an intra right now that has waxy maize which is not such a good feeling about 45min into... I bet with that little bit of food that would help.... I will try this tomorrow... AND WILL BUST OUT SOME REPS IF IT WORKS!

  5. Yo guys you could try just taking your preworkout then sipping dextrose powder and whey during your workouts??
    Although sometimes (like legday) the **** will make me nauseous, but id rather be nauseous than catabolic!!

    Why not BCAAs?? I always drink bcaa and carbs during my w/o


  7. I am taking this diet as a pre workout meal.
    carbohydrate meal bread, potatoes, brown rice, pasta, couscous,fresh and dried fruit.

    iget that nauseous feeling with my preworkout and my intra. I am trying to find another preworkout right now that combines with infinite force. Infinite force has proteins, glutamine, waxy maize few carbs...not sure about the dextrose. It keeps me going good until the 45th min when i feel like death... i just stop drinkingthe intra and move over to the water fountain. One of the "much older" guys/extrainer tells me that just water would do me good and that junk I drink before and after is not needed...'all you need is a gut health supplement, protein powder and eat well'. i dunno ... i just do what i can!

  9. I'd suggest eating a meal 1-2 hours before hitting the gym and a piece of fruit right before and after.

  10. I figured the nauscious feeling was the preworkout and the intra... I tried another new preworkout and everything was great! Hopefully tomorrow I will have the same experience. I still think I should be seeing more gains if I eat before working out, unfortunatly I am not getting up 1.5 or more hours before I workout ... 530 am workouts are early enough!
    I need to maybe .... if I wake up in the middle of the night drink a shake with ample grams of protein
