Nutrition/Supps for AM Training


#1

I wake up early and workout first thing in the morning. Alarm rings at 6 AM and I’m normally getting to the gym by 6:30 AM (short bike ride).

I’m currently bulking. I workout 6 days a week doing p/p/l twice a week (based off kingbeef’s routine in the sticky’s).

Recently I’ve been waking up and mixing 1 scoop of Optimum whey protein with a cup of orange juice. Then during my workout it’s 1 scoop gatorade powder mixed in with 1 scoop BCAA 5000 powder. Post-workout shake is 50g protein 80 grams carbs 500 calories taken immediately after training.

I’ve just order a couple products from the Biotest line and wondered what would be the best peri-workout combo when working out first thing in the morning.

I’ll have FINiBARs, Surge Workout Fuel, Surge Recovery, and Grow! Whey available, in addition to some BCAA powder.

I was thinking:

upon waking up - Finibar, 1 scoop Grow! Whey, 1 scoop Surge Workout Fuel

during workout - 1 scoop Surge Workout Fuel, 1 scoop BCAAs

post workout - 2 scoops Surge Recovery, 1 scoop Grow! Whey

30-45 mins post-workout I slam 4 whole eggs, 2 chicken sausages, 1 cup oatmeal, 1.5 cups milk.

Your schedule is a little tight to fit all those things in correctly according to label directions. And you’ve purchased some overlapping supplements. Still, much better than your previous plan. But next time drop us a note here and we’ll help you design the right stack for your needs and schedule.

Have the <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/finibar-competition-bar"target=“new”>Finibar upon waking. Ideally, this would work better if you woke up a little earlier. Begin sipping the <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/surge-workout-fuel"target=“new”>Surge Workout Fuel as you get to the gym. Continue throughout the workout. After training, have the <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/surge-recovery"target=“new”>Surge Recovery. Do NOT mix any whey into it or you’ll dampen the proper effect of the formula. Save the <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/grow-whey-protein"target=“new”>Grow! Whey Protein for other times of the day, between meals or added to meal.

Not perfect, but a great improvement.
