    Does it have calories in it? If you answered yes (which I hope to hell you did), then yes it gives you energy. Really any source of carbs + protein is preferred pre-workout.

    I'm not a huge fan anymore of fruit before training myself, but apple's are indeed pretty good in general. I always put some in my protein pancakes in the morning.

    Give it a go yourself for a while and decide that way.

    Pre-workout, i'm more into my coffee and stimulants lol

    personally - I don't find apples a good choice pre workout - they don't give me a 'kick' of energy (if anything they make me sluggish).

    As suggested - I love nana pre workout (especially with whey, oats and honey ) and they are a great source of potassium as well - which is very handy around your workouts.

    a steak or hamburger with oats or potatoes will give me a full surge of energy along with all my other carb meals before that depending what time you work out. BULKING FTW!

    I personally like apples before a workout. As long as whatever I'm having has carbs, I'm good.

    Protein powder

    I change it up, but use:

    Protein Powder
    Eggs/Egg Beaters/Egg Whites
    All Purpose Flour
    Baking Powder
    Vanilla Extract
    Splenda

    Add some water too if the batter is too thick. Top with sugar free syrup after cooking.

    What? You've never heard of protein pancakes?
    Dear lord boy - where have you been?!

    Check out the 'RECIPE'S' thread or the MEALS EATING NOW thread - stacks of recipes in there.

    V. important:
    - regulates 'balance' of electrolytes with sodium in your body (esp important if you have a higher sodium diet, or if you are sweating a lot)
    - helps maintain a healthy blood pressure
    - regulates acid-base balance (important if you are eating a high protein diet)
    - aids in correct nerve impulses
    - aids in correct and strong muscle contraction (skeletal and heart)
    - aids in production of energy
    - aids in protein synthesis
    - assists in glucose uptake into cells
    - assists in glyconeogenesis
    - assists in healthy intestinal function
    - assists in preventing fatigue associated with low calorie diets
    - helps decrease mood disturbance in some with depression
    ^^

    So , as a bb/ athlete, the main ones there are:
    - regulates acid balance on high protein diet
    - regulates water balance
    - helps with muscle contraction and nerve conduction
    - helps with production of energy and protein synthesis
    - helps prevent fatigue associated with low calorie dieting

    I've hade bananas and apples about 1.5 hrs before several occasions. Never really noticed a diff between the two. I just need carbs to even think about having a good workout. Maybe it's more of a personal thing?

    I eat oats/natural pb/whey about 45 minutes before my workout and a banana and coffee 10 minutes prior. Seems to give me decent energy throughout the workout.

    V. important:
    - regulates 'balance' of electrolytes with sodium in your body (esp important if you have a higher sodium diet, or if you are sweating a lot)
    - helps maintain a healthy blood pressure
    - regulates acid-base balance (important if you are eating a high protein diet)
    - aids in correct nerve impulses
    - aids in correct and strong muscle contraction (skeletal and heart)
    - aids in production of energy
    - aids in protein synthesis
    - assists in glucose uptake into cells
    - assists in glyconeogenesis
    - assists in healthy intestinal function
    - assists in preventing fatigue associated with low calorie diets
    - helps decrease mood disturbance in some with depression
    ^^


    So , as a bb/ athlete, the main ones there are:
    - regulates acid balance on high protein diet
    - regulates water balance
    - helps with muscle contraction and nerve conduction
    - helps with production of energy and protein synthesis
    - helps prevent fatigue associated with low calorie dieting

    You CAN get tablets (and you also get potassium from lite salt/ diet salt - which replaces sodium with potassium) but you can get potassium from lots of things you eat too - mostly fresh vegetables and fruits but also legumes/ pulses and dairy. So if you be sure to eat healthy you don't need to stress.
