Get at least 7 hours of sleep. 8 is better but I can’t do that usually. I try to hit the sack between 11-11:30 and am up by 6:45, in the gym by 8. My morning includes a pre-workout supp with some go-go juice in it, but since I’ve moved to NYC I probably don’t need it much - the 20 min walk to the train station wakes me up.
As for nutrition, I work a desk job so it’s pretty flexible in regards to me hitting my meals, but I’ve had all kinds of times when I can’t get to a microwave or anything. So I have a couple bars handy, or pre-filled shakers with my real replacements so all I have to do is add water. I take high-protein bread powerbutter sandwiches.
Time your workout before work so that you can hit your PO meal right though - all meals are important but getting your post workout nutrition right is of utmost importance. Anyway, it’s all a matter of strategizing and being smart about where to make the sacrifices you know you’ll have to make.
If I don’t get my workout in it’s really hard to make it through the day.
