I’m one of those people who like to train very soon after waking up. I usually have 30-60 minutes between me waking up and actually starting the warm up set in the gym (because it’s like 2 minute walk from home). This means I tend to train either on empty stomach or possibly a cup of coffee to wake me up a little if I feel too sluggish in the morning.
This has been working out just fine but after hopping on a more demanding program I have noticed my energy going down the drain towards the second half of the workout. I’d like to remedy that and the most logical solution to me seems to be eating something before I go train. However, I feel like most foods are out of the question since the time window I would have between eating and training is not enough for the digestive process to take place.
The only solution I see is having a protein shake and hoping for the best. Are there other alternatives?
