Every morning I do a little yoga, basic body weight exercises, some planches, rope climbs, and a mile run to get the blood flowing. I’m worried that this may have a catabolic effect since I’m doing so on an empty stomach and all and was curious If I should take my Surge before to counteract the initial catabolism or if taking it after would be sufficient.
Also right after that workout, I usually take Power Drive with my morning oatmeal and yogurt for a little CNS recovery from the previous day and a kick start. Thoughts on timing of the Power Drive and Surge?
P.S. I train every day besides some very needed rest days here and there, so recovery is KEY for me.
P.P.S. Sorry for this being long, and please dont bash me for doing yoga. >_<[/quote]
I would definitely suggest some Surge about 30 mins before your workout. (Or test it and see how you feel. I actually need something more solid in my stomach pre-workout and Surge can make me feel nauseous.)
The thing is, you are actually ALREADY in a catabolic state when you wake up before you start your workout.
I would say if you are just purely doing cardio and trying to really cut weight, then yes…first thing in the a.m. on an empty stomach will do the trick.
But since you are doing resistance work, definitely get some carbs and protein pre-workout. I’d also take the Power Drive before the workout as well.
p.s.-anyone that bashes you for doing yoga is an ignorant dickhead who has probably never tried it…so just politely ignore…or not politely.
