Supplement Timing for AM Workouts


#1

I'm changing my workout schedule to am workouts, instead of pm. Here's what it'll look like:

Wakeup (1 scoop Metabolic Drive) @ 7.15
Workout 7.30 - 8.45
Shower/PWO Surge 9 - 10
Then my regular day schedule.

I used to workout in the evenings, from 6-8p or so.

My questions are:
1. Would taking a scoop of Power Drive with my protein (pre-workout) be ok? Or will they interfere with one another? (How can I optimize both the protein intake and Power Drive?)

  1. I'm on a cycle of HOT-ROX right now. I used to take them at 9a, and again at 4p. How should I adjust timing to fit my new schedule?
    (I was thinking I could take it maybe 1.5 hours after the surge, or 3 hours PWO, and then again at 5 or 6)

  2. Random question: I'm planning on 'cheating' tomorrow (Superbowl party, so wings + beer, most likely). Should I drop supplementation for the day, as well? Or keep with regular supplements, and eat crap?

Someone has to have advice to offer?
