I've been doing some searching around the site trying to find some info and I've found some posts close...but have decided to just ask specifically...
This morning I did my first early morning workout…
Up at 4am
Breakfast at 4:15 - 1/2 cu of oatmeal with Vanilla Metabolic Drive and Honey (and of course water!)
At gym 5am…start with 10mins of warm-up on elliptical (to get all the joints moving)
And then do my workout…Maximal effort day on the bench, followed by some dips and then some lying Tri extensions. During the workout I drank about 8oz of Surge.
got home and added some creatine to the second 1/2 and finished it off.
Got ready for work.
While in the shower and getting ready for work I felt pretty crappy. Light-headed, a little shaky, and just generally “not good”
I’ve done morning workouts before (during my Triathlon training days) and always felt great all morning.
This was my first morning workout that I was using Surge.
Was it just a sugar spike, then crash? Should I maybe opt for a different peri-workout drink for the morning workouts? Different breakfast?
Thoughts and/or links would be great! Thanks!
(also…not sure if it matters, but I’m a skinny guy trying to GAIN weight/muscle…slowly trying to get my body used to eating more…which I’m working on, but at this point I just can’t eat a huge breakfast. The fact that I’m eating breakfast at all has been a huge change (and step in the right direction!)
