What Do You Eat Before Training?


Whats the last thing you have before training?


cray fish sandwhich around 5:30pm, training at 8:00, lucozade energy drink during training.



That is possibly the most vile thing I have ever read.

Depends when I lift, Weetabix before an AM session and flavored milk right after. I try and have some complex carbs if it's a big session


The Pret cray fish sandwhich is nice man...



Last thing I have before training is a shake with some creatine, whey protein, dextrose and maltodextrin in about 1.5L of water. Normally finish that about 15-30 minutes before I start warming up. It's not uncommon for me to go into training before I've had a solid meal that day, sometimes just a breakfast shake (protein and berries and shit) or a glass of milk with a multi in the morning.


Dead Animal always


1.5l 15-30mins before you hit the gym? You obviously have a much stronger bladder then I do...I probably have about 1-1.25-1.5litres during the 2.5-3.5hr training session.

No cray fish sandwhich today. I had 4 medium potatoes, 2 chicken thighs and a lamb chop for lunch 4hrs ago.

Luzocade for me!



eat some decent protein koing!!!!! whats with all the shit


I dunno, chicken thigh + lamb chops sounds damn good to me.

I usually have oats with eggs or ground beef.


I eat poor children.


I would like to see a picture of this crayfish sandwich.


Crayfish sandwich sounds delicious.

I like to have a couple of eggs, a shake with berries, yogurt, protein powder and creatine + a coffee and some ice cream.

Depends though, sometimes I eat dinner and wait about an hour or two then train. In that case, no shake.


Pret as in Pret-a-manger? Was in London not long ago (have dual citizenship) and ate there about 3x a day.

As for me, generally 2 whole eggs + 1/2 cup whites + 2 chicken sausages and a handful of spinach, 1 cup puffed rice afterwards and 1 finibar 15 mins later. I start warming up and foam rolling 30 mins after that.
It winds up being around 50g protein, 55g carbs, 15g fat. Then sip on BCAA's and Waximaize during.


I also have some more whey/dextrose/maltodextrin in about 2L of water during the session itself haha. If I've been slacking off and not training much sometimes I'll have to piss 5-6 times in the hour after the session's over, but the body adapts and that stops.


I take a protein shake in the morning and before I sleep.



I work in an office guys...I can't cook eggs at 5pm...so my crayfish sandwhich is good. It's a good source of protein and it's seabased for a change :stuck_out_tongue:



I'll grab one tomorrow :slight_smile:



I must have a tiny bladder...

The crayfish sandwhich is from Pret-a-manager and has mayo and rocket on brown bread.



in for cray fish sammich


No cray fish sandwhich today.

Tomorrow I'll grab it on Friday!

How are things man?! You on AIM?
