    Working Out First Thing in the Morning. What to eat and when? Also supplement timing

    If I get up early in the morning to work out, instead of going at night, what should I be eating and how long before I workout should I eat it.

    How would I use things like fat burners (that say to take on an empty stomach when you wake) and pre-workout supplements.

    Anyone currently do this, and are you doing a 3,4, or 5 day split. How do you do it. Thanks and reps

    You could have yourself a meal like egg whites (or whole eggs), Oatmeal or a bagel with some jam on it, maybe a grapefruit (if your daily cals can support it, grapefruits also help speed up the metabolism) about 30 minutes to 45 minutes prior to your morning workout, the carbs should up your insulin a bit and help against muscle breakdown during your workout and give you some good energy throughout the workout as well.

    All fat burners should have directions on the best way to take them on the label somewhere.

    I've been doing morning workouts pretty much since I first got into bodybuilding 2 years ago. My routine goes like this:

    6:30am - wake up
    6:45am - EC stack (1st dose)
    7:15am - breakfast (cereal, whey, hardboiled egg)
    8:00am - leave for the gym
    8:20am - arrive @ gym (put stuff away in locker, run to the bathroom)
    8:30am - workout
    10:30am - PWO meal
    10:45am - shower
    11:30am - leave for work
    12:00pm - arrive @ work (get settled in, set up computer apps, take 2nd EC dose etc)
    12:30pm - lunch
    1:00pm - start work

    Then I work straight til 9pm, arrive home at 10, clean up, go to bed (around midnight-ish), then do it all over again the next day. Needless to say, I'm pretty much ready to drop dead by the time Friday rolls around.

    Look into fasted training. Some people like it some people dont. Some prefer to just have a little somthing like BCAAs or a scoop of whey before. Its convienent if your trying to lift right when you wake up or after work/school.

    If youve got the time then the above suggestions are solid as well, happy meal sounds like fun lol.

    I want to kind of get up, eat, get my food ready for the day and go.

    Would it be alright for instance to take my fat burner right when i get up and eat 15 minutes later, and then go straight to the gym. It only takes me like 10 min to get to the gym or less.

    I currently workout in the mornings Mon-Fri, so I may be of some assistance. I work out in the morning because I have school and the gym's too crowded by 4-6P.M. so I gave up going in the afternoon. My schedule goes like this:

    10P.M. - Bedtime
    4:50A.M. - Wake Up
    5A.M. - CytoGainer (150g)
    ---5:30-6:30 Workout---
    6:40A.M. - Oatmeal (1 cup) / Post-Workout Shake
    9:30A.M. - Chicken and Rice (white)
    11:30A.M. - Chicken and Rice (brown)
    2P.M. - Banana
    So on and so forth

    I don't know how early you get up, but you can try it like that. It took me a while to get used to drinking protein in the morning because my stomach kept getting upset, but I got used to it. You can also take some BCAA's in the morning too if you think it will help.

    I am also a fasted cardio-er. Graduated uni in the spring and am currently unemployed so I have a lot of time on my hands but my morning routine goes like this.

    Wed/Fri: Wake up, gulp down about a liter of water, head to the gym, LISS, hit the sauna for 10-15 min, head home, eat breakfast (oatmeal, blueberries, cranberries, 1 scoop whey, flax seeds)

    On Tue/Thur I do HIIT so on those days I wake up, eat a complex carb like a banana or oats, drink plenty of water, do my HIIT, go home and hence...

    I lift at 6:00 every morning with nothing but Jack3d and Ephedrine in my system. I've eaten before my workouts but don't really feel that it adds to the effect of Jacked + E

    Try fasted workouts and a meal before, see what works for you. Remember that food is fuel and I believe you'll have better energy and have better workouts when you have slow burning carbs in body and a good meal. See what works best for you.
