Default Early A.M. Workouts - pre-workout meal?

Happy Friday y'all! Quick question about eating before workouts. I'm up at 3:30a, in the gym before 4a. The last thing I'm thinking about at that time is eating, but I'm sure I probably need to be doing something.....don't I?

The only thing I can imagine I could possibly get down at that hour would be a shake on the way to the gym. So here's my questions....

1. Do I have to eat/drink something before I go?
2. Any recommendations on something easy that would also be easy to get down at 3:30a?

Thanks!

It's a good idea to have some kind of fuel in you to get the best workout possible. Given your time constraints something liquid would be your best shot. So yes a shake or an MRP would be good. Wish I had a gym that opened so early! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I workout every morning on an empty stomach. About 1/2 hour before I go I take aminos and either 1/2 cup of coffee or and ECA to minimize catabolism. Then I have my shake and supps right after. Works great for me.

Here is a post from the training forum that may help you out.

training on an empty stomach

This is generally an opinionated matter.

If I'm cutting I'll drink just a shake post workout.

I personally feel everyone should drink a protein shake first thing in the morning, all the time, as a daily habit.

Wow! Thanks Old School! Lots of good stuff in that thread, as well as a couple of links. Probably take me awhile to digest it all (pun intended!). Appreciate you pointing me there!
