but first I’m after some input/ideas…
I have a problem. I can’t eat food after my weigh ins for a competition. Whether or not I have to cut to make weight, for some reason, on competition day, I just CAN NOT hold any kind of solid food down.
Even some protein shakes are tough. At my last meet I mixed some Power Drive and some whey with a bit of gatorade, and immediately after the first event (550lb frame carry) I was behind a pick up truck emptying my stomach. I’m not sure what the problem is, but I know at least one other high level strongman competitor that has this same problem, so it’s not completely unheard of.
For some reason, the only thing I seem to be able to keep down is watered down gatorade. However, this is obviously far from optimal on the most important day of my cycle. I’ve got Georgias Strongest Man coming up and it’s a heavy contest that will probably last 5-6 hours, so I’m looking for something other than straight carbs to get me through.
I need something that is gentle and will digest quickly and easily. It’d be nice to get some kind of protein in, but I don’t since I dont see that happening, so I’m thinking the WOF might be the way to go.
To those of you that have tried it, how does it sit in your stomach? Is it thick, or could it be digested easily if I water it down enough? Will I be able to have half a shake and then do a heavy Conans Carry while holding my breath the entire time?
