training early in the morning advice

now there is a scientific explanation of why people can respond differently. this is where the art of exercise comes in. knowing when to apply what stimulus/variable for a better response.
well, dont eat till after the workout. increase your fat intake and decrease your carb intake and your body will get more efficient at using bodyfat as fuel. now i am not saying eat less over the span of a day or week just change your food choices. there will be a few weeks for your body to get used to it. you have to push past that. once you do you may feel much more energetic than before. and dont worry about not eating before hand. your body stores enough fuel to workout and go without eating for days. just push past the initial few weeks of feeling groggy. in time you will feel stronger.you can call me "ozzie" for short.

Ok, I started to read it all, and in the end I decided I will just let you know what I do as I am a 5am trainer, and have been for the last 10 months or so especially now that classes are starting back up again and I work FT.
the night before I make all my meals for the day including preWo and postWO.
Uppon waking down a Dexaprine XR with a big glass or water which wakes me up and gets me "primed" to eat as I also use to blow chuncks in the morning.
Eggs with oats and/or apple preWO along with Conquer and Hemavol.
Compete + BCAA + Gatorade during workout
And then postWO is usually whatever I want at the time. Usually P28 bread and Muscle Egg french toast.
That is my typical morning since last October.iForce Nutrition Anabolics Minion Member

We train Sunday morning 7am... Its not quite 5am but hey certainly is early enough for a boring saturday night /
Okay so I get up at 5:45am... The drive to the gym is approximately 20 minutes.
I eat a Tuna Sandwhich, make a protein shake (1 cup water / 1 scoop chocolate protein), then I make 24oz PWO drink... Why PWO? Because it tastes better than coffee and I need caffeine.
I drink 1 on the way to the gym and I drink another halfway through the workout.

I train at 5AM. I wake up at 415, drink a liter of water with a preworkout in it, morning BM, and then off to the gym. Post workout meal is 7 eggs and 1.5 cups of oatmeal.

can you explain the science behind those different responses? will 2 people of the exact same anatomy, physiology, with the exact same chemical/hormonal balances with the same BMI, BMR, hydration level, stress level, sleep habits/patterns, workout program (including intensity, volume and frequency), overall caloric intake, overall protein intake, fat % and muscle mass react differently? if so can you explain the mechanism on why 2 identical mechanisms are reacting differently? here is a thought, if 2 people shed body fat and 1 had 300+ grams carbs a day, then both were eating in a caloric deficit. there is also the variable of how often those carbs were taken in as when insulin is being used to store bodyfat it is mechanically impossible to use body fat as fuel. did you take that variable into account?
i was trying to keep this simple for everyone reading this but it seems at least for 1 reader i cannot. thats ok. i have learned a lot over the years from forums. maybe others can as well. for example, the human body is an amazing machine. that working hard, sleeping hard, and eating hard will get further than majoring in the minors. that the details are great when discussing with others that want to know or by others that push something silly but otherwise are not important.

this does remind me of this phrase:
people judge you on your actions and not your intent. you may have a heard of gold but so does a hard boiled egg.
thank god it is just the internet and of little concern to my real life.

A workout first thing in the morning helps fire the metabolism all day, and when your metabolism is higher, you burn more calories. As a consequence, morning workouts mean you can eat the same amount and still lose weight. However, if you're not able to wake up on time in the morning, it could be because you might be undertaking some sort of physical exercise that raises internal body temperature, which, in turn, tires you completely and keeps you up at night, therefore, you are not able to wake up in the morning since you sleep late. Instead, try relaxing stretches or an indulgent bath before sleep. Morning you'll feel fresher. I read an awesome post related to this here.
