Anyone here workout early in the morning before work. If so, how do you do it? What do you take pre workout? When do you eat breakfast?
I recently got a new job and do not have time to workout after work.
I've been working out in the AM for over a year. I roll out of bed ~5:30am. I usually have all my stuff ready and pre-mixed the night before so I don't have to waste any time doing that stuff (clothes, mp3 player, shakes, supplements, etc.).
I've been taking Scorch + Yohimbine pre-workout for awhile. It does a good job of pepping me up. I take it directly upon waking (before getting dressed).
I also start drinking Xtend about 5:45. I get to the gym ~6-6:15. It takes a little more warming up to get the CNS up to animal mode.
Workout until ~8:00am. I have my shake ready in the car on the way home. Shower, get dressed for work, eat breakfast ~8:40. I'm at work by 9:00. I only live about 3 min from my office, though.
i workout in the AM. when i wake up i have take my creatine, and eat oats and whey protein. about 20 minutes later i take whatever stims im taking that day (caffeine, tyrosine, yohimbe or ephedrine), and about 20 minutes after that i hit the weights.
I also work out in the morning. I have a tough time eating really early in the am. Can anyone suggest something to help, I do not want to comprimise my strength because I am running on empty
I wake up 1 hour pre-workout, drink a home-prepared MRP (oat flour & whey), go back to sleep for another 1/2 hour or so, grab some stims and BCAA's and hit the gym.

I wake up at 4:30. Soon as I wake up I have AP, two glasses of water, half of a stim X, shot of clout, two cups of coffee, shot of protein and a orange. At the gym by 5:30 roaring to go. Workout is done by 6:25 hit the shower then drink post-workout shake on the way to work. Get to work by 7 eat some turkey sausage and oatmeal til 2.5 - 3 hours later.
How do you take a half of a StimX? It's a capsule?
I've been doing this...
wake up at 8... immediately drink protein shake
845 drink my preworkout supp... either NO Xplode, SuperPump etc
work out 9-10 while sipping BCAAs
10-10:20 do cardio
10:20 drink my PWO shake of 60g carbs 30g protein
10:45 come home and have a "real meal"
I'm going to take some advice I just got on another forum and add some carbs to my wakeup-shake... probably just a half cup of oats.
