Ok here's the deal, I either have class or work from 9-5 mon-fri. Being a college student that usually leaves my nights pretty booked up with studying, papers, etc. So I like to go lift in the morning. I've never minded getting up an hour or 2 early so it fits easily into my schedule. Also I like to get in there before all the "spring breakers" who have no dedication at all and crowd out the gym doing nothing but curls all evening. The question is... is this a good idea working out on a basically empty stomach?
I usually get up and grab a handful or two of raisins, a scoop of natty PB, and a protein shake with some blueberries in it and hit the gym. Is this enough to not be considered an "empty stomach?"
I guess it also depends on your goals. Right now mine are to put on a few lean pounds but to keep my BF low since I'm about to go on cycle. (To all of you cycle nazis I definitely do have an entire PCT and cycle support ready)
Any help/insight about the working out early thing would be great. I'm still learning and appreciate anyone smarter than me helping out. Thanks
