1 cup yogurt
1 cup milk
two scoops protein
1 banana (or 1 cup fruit of your choice)
blend and drink on your way to the gym.
One hour later, 6 eggs, 2 pancakes, 2 big sausages, coffee.
As for "letting yourself digest an hour before your work out..." Why? Do you think you'll get cramps, like your momma said you'd do if you ate and then went swimming? If a guy would eat up to ten BCAA tabs right before their work out, then why wouldn't anyone else eat a friggin' meal?
Sheesh, the urban myths abound!
Your body is a complex machine, capable of multi-tasking!!! It can handle food at the same time as working out... Unless you're squat day is so extreme you find yourself puking. If that's the case, don't eat before. But if your avatar is any indicator, this is not the case. Train harder dude. You look soft.
Oh, and one last tidbit... eat protein with every meal. that "little bit of oatmeal" sucks as a meal in of itself.
