So... I need some tips and advice.
With my schedule I have about 30-40 minutes tops from the time I wake up to the time I plan to hit the gym. I typically get up just before 4:00am, knock back some Power Drive & HOT-ROX and hit the pool for a fasted, moderate pace swim from 4:30 until 5 or 5:30 depending on the day.
What I'd like to do is take up some of that "swim time" on two or three of the days to incorporate more weights work and move some of that cardio time to the evenings when I can get a walk or lightweight/bodyweight complex in without worrying about it being peak gym time for everyone else.
My question is this: what would be the best thing for me to consume so I'm not lifting in a fasted state? I'm assuming it would be a shake of some sort, but I'm wondering if there are better choices I could make than a whey drink or some such.
Does anyone else work out insanely early like this, and - if so - what do you eat and when?
