So lately i’ve been thinking of changing my workout time to early in the mornings instead of my current time which is around 3 or 4pm.
Reasoning is that if i do early morning workouts it will:
-get me up early, because i enjoy working out and if i work out first thing i will actually look forward to getting up to do it. this contrasts with currently: i wake up and decide its too cold to get out of bed and sleep another few hours (no heating in my house, irish winter aint fun)
-mean that the rest of the day is free for other plans (aside from keeping an eye on nutrition)
Ideally I would be working out about an hour after i wake up, but the problem is that i always wake up really hungry and really groggy. My question therefore is that i need a food or suppliment which would:
A) get nutrition into my muscles quickly to help my recovery from the previous day’s workout and
B) give me enough energy that it gets rid of the grogginess and is able to fuel me for an intense workout
I’m thinking a mixture of whey protein and some form of fast realease carb?
Anyone who does early morning workouts i would appreciate your views on this!
