Anyone who trains first thing in morning

what has worked best for you
A) protein shake before workout
B) just a preworkout supplement like energix

or what ever else?

It worked well for me with just a multi & a fat burner with some low intensity to try to spare muscle. I used a treadmill at full incline.

I'm usually in the gym by 5:30 or 6:00am. I usually have a 3/4cup of oats around 45min before training. If I wake up late, I'll sometimes use a preworkout drink or a couple of caffeine pills instead.

I train about an hour after I wake up. I wake up take a multi and have a bowl of oatmeal. An hour later I am training. When I have it I drink an igniter shot from bsn. Or I will have a blue monster energy drink.

If I lift in the am I have a really hard time eating a whole food meal...always feel like yacking half way through.

In that scenario I normally will eat the following unless it's leg day:

50 grams protein (25 whey, 25 casein)
1 cup oats
few blueberries
splenda

Leg day I just have my BCAA's with 30-40 grams of waxy maize that I sip during my workout. Otherwise I feel like yacking even with the above mentioned meal.

Love training in the morning

I am at the gym by 6:30am. I cant eat and go to the gym, feel like I'm going to yak

I have two cups of coffee and and stimulant, that's it for me. I eat when I get home.

The only time I'll eat something prior to training in the morning is when I have to do legs, this gets tough on a empty stomach. When I train legs, again I'll have 2 cups of coffee, stimulant and two rice caskes with PB spread over them.

I train before work every single time, in the gym at around 6:30 - 7:45 am usually. Wake up at 5:30, have oats + whey before training if it isn't leg day. If it is I go for yogurt with whey and some fruit so I'm not too full.

Don't have time to wait around for an hour either but by the time I finish eating and get to the gym and start training it's been at least 45 minutes anyway. I can't train on an empty stomach.

5:30 am. I work heavy construction and would never make it after
8 hrs of that.
With me I never eat pre workout just a cup of coffee. I want all blood
flow to the muscle being worked not to the stomach for digestion.

I have always believed that this makes a lot of sense and have tried training on an empty stomach because of it. Never works for me though. Feel too weak and unfocused.

BigTazz, People react different. For me I get sluggish right after a meal.
You say your gym's a 45min drive, that should be enough time for the
digestion process.

Over my many years of training morning workouts
have never been my thing. I have poor workouts.
I always train at night or mid day.

AM Training

I'm usually at the gym around 6a.m. and I have a serving of N.O. Shotgun before I workout, it has 18 gm of protien in it. Then I have my shake after my workout and breakfast about an hour later.

I wake up early enough to eat a full meal about an 1.5 hours before i train. I wake up...eat...prep my meals for the day...relax a little bit then head to the gym/work for the day.

Works well for me because i am morning person.

I always train in the AM and have a full breakfast (eggs, ham, cheese, toast, oatmeal w/ Beverly protein mixed in, and apple juice) before I lift. I don't see how one can just have a protein shake and a piece of fruit and be able to give 100% at the gym.
