Well here's my first post. I've been reading the articles on this site for a while, and post on other forums but for some reason never got into posting here. Anyways, here's my situation.
I usually have an hour of class from 8:30-9:30, or 9:30-10:30 and then I’ve got a 2 hour break when I like to hit the gym during. I always wake up around 7:30 and have about 100g of Oats with a scoop of whey and ground flax and milk.
I hit the gym about 90 minutes after this meal, but I find that I just don’t have the energy during my workouts that I need. Would drinking a shake with just some simple carbs and BCAA’s right before I workout/during my workout be the best way to keep my energy up? The only problem with this is that I find it hard to do core work when I consume liquids during my workouts.
I was trying to follow Alan Aragon’s pre-workout guidelines which is where I got my macronutrient amounts from. I also take White Flood ~20 minutes before since I’m running a log for Controlled Labs of Green Magnitude and White Flood and so I will have energy and be boosted from these products (Caffeine rush) but my strength won’t be there often, and halfway through my workouts I start feeling an empty pit in my stomach.
If anybody has any tips on what I could try pre-WO I’d be more than willing to give it a shot. Also I’ve done a lot of searching, but if you know of any articles or threads that cover this, feel free to PM me or post the link. I spend tons of time reading articles anyways .
Thanks in advance,
