#3

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


#4

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


#7

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!

#9

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

I usually have oats with eggs or ground beef.


#10

I eat poor children.


#11

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


#12

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.


#13

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.


#14

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.


#15

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:
