When you train in the early AM like you sometimes do (5:30 am) what does your pre workout meal look like?

Also when you were doing metabolic pump and explosive complexes at night a while back how did you change these from week to week? Did you use intra carbs during both your AM and PM sessions?

Thanks!

Hi Brad,

Thanks for the questions.

When I train in the early AM I don't have a pre-workoout meal. I simply use 3-4 servings of Plazma and begin drinking them 30 minutes before I get to the gym. Thus, I'll have ~75 grams of carbs and 30 grams of protein in my system by the time I hit my first working set.

The PM metabolic pump and explosive complexes that I did last Spring stayed the same based on which primary or secondary workout in which they were paired. I was dieting at the time so I think I only used 1 serving of Plazma and 1 serving of Mag-10 for these workouts. They were typically shorter workouts anyway...lasting maybe 25-40 minutes. The short answer is yes - I used intra-workout carbs for both AM and PM sessions, but less for PM complexes.

Hope this helps!




All the best,
Mark Dugdale
