I prefer to train in the early morning, before I get to work/school. I usually get up around 6:00 and i have to be on the bus by 6:30 to get to the gym before 7. Sometimes this is brutal, but once I get used to it, it’s fine.
The problem is I have a lot of trouble eating ‘big’ in the mornings before I lift. I usually don’t have any appetite before 7:30 or so, and when i force feed (either slamming down a protein shake or shoveling in eggs or something like that) I feel like crap, which screws up my workout.
Does anyone else experience this? would it be a bad idea to eat breakfast around 8:30 after I train? I just hit my short-term deadlift goal(40 lb PR last week!) and I’m looking to improve body-comp and conditioning over the next couple of months.
If they matter, I can provide specific details about training/diet /stats upon request.
thanks in advance,
