    Pre-workout timing.


    I started my RPM and Drive today.

    When exactly should I take my RPM before mt workout so that it is kicking in my system. 30 minutes before?

    I usually take it 30-45 min before workout.

    The timing depends alot on what you've got in your stomach. 1 hour pre-WO is recommended, although 45 pre is what I've done and seems to be pretty popular.

    I highly suggest reading the DRIVE and RPM writeups (RPM FAQs )

    I like to do it even earlier; I usually dose my RPM (+HEAT) about 90 minutes or so prior to training.

    I used to just eat oatmeal + whey 90 minutes pre WO, but then I started having a shake with some WPI + Fruit and my lifts and energy in the gym skyrocketed so now I always have a shake 15-20mins unless it's my deadlift day. :clean:

    I tend to like eggs + quinoa or eggs and whole grain muffins or eggs and fruit and I just shoot for 25g protein from eggs, maybe 20-40g of carbs. not too heavy a meal, but enough to give me energy, and quiet any rumblings from stims.

    I have been making a smoothie with bananas, pineapple, WPI, egg protein, and almond butter about 60minutes before training and it has really helped me during my training.

    Rodja,

    BTW: The RPM/Drive stack is good stuff. Thanks for all the tips.
