Hey guys - Just wanted to know what kind of stuff to have pre-workout which would replace my present plan. I'm 19, 185-ish lbs, like 11% bf (estimate) and have been working out for a year now. Each of my workouts consists of 4 compound movements each (4 sets of 8-10) and takes 1 hr 20 min (3 min rest periods).
This calls for a large amount of carbs to sustain the necessary energy (rice is so god damn concentrated!). An hour before working out, I consume about 700 cal of rice (about 160g carbs). Although it sounds like too much, I have experienced no weight gain and I'm always tired at the end of my workouts and beleive that my rice is being put to great use. Any ideas on easier ways of having a pre-workout meal?
People take Surge but my only problem with that is that it does not have as many carbs and has alot of sugar. Considering the fact that I'm exhausted by the end of each workout and I'm maintaining my body weight, I can't picture consuming less than what I am for pre-workout. Any ideas are appreciated!!
