Good morning all. I have a question for you early morning lifters. What would you consider your must-have supplements for an early AM workout?
I have always been a later afternoon/early evening lifter but a new schedule has put a stop to that. For the last month I’ve been at the gym when they open the doors at 6am. I’m really liking the early AM thing, but I just don’t feel like the intensity is there. Never really been an early riser so getting up at 4am so I’m fully pumped at 6 just isn’t going to be an option.
Right now I’m up around 5:15 with a little mobility work and then off to the gym. Since I’m rarely hungry that early, I’ll have a bowl of oatmeal or a banana if anything at all. I know I should be having something pre-workout but honestly I’ve been off the supplement train for a while and cooking my typical breakfast that early isn’t happening.
As I’ve gotten older (mid-thirties) I find that I’m less interested in drinking all of my meals. My diet is pretty solid, just lacking the multiple Biotest jugs that used to fill the cabinets. So without buying up 100 different sups, what would you early AM guys not go without?
