Hey guys- I wanna make sure I’m eating/ supplementing right around my cardio, to make sure that I’m getting what I need to provide me with the energy to make it through and also to prevent any muscle breakdown… At the minute, I’m doing 45-minutes of pretty intense stationary cycling (sweat loads/ out of breath.) I do this in the morning, around about 1 and a half hours after I finish my breakfast (4 egg whites, scrambled with 2 yolks and a cup of oats- about 450 cals) and as I arrive at the gym I’ll eat a banana and down 20g of whey (to prevent muscle breakdown.)
Afterwards I’ll drink 500ml of a sports drink (30g carbs- 120 cals) and down a couple of hydrolysed amino acid tablets. 30 Minutes later I’ll have a high-carb, medium protein lunch (around 450 cals.) How does this routine sound? If I only had breakfast an hour and a half before cardio, do I need to eat something and take a shake beforehand? Any help is much appreciated!!
