    Hi All,

    I have been going to the gym during my lunch hour but I really feel pressed for time and am rushing my workouts.

    I have the option of weight training at 5 or 5:30 AM but I am concerned that I will not have as much energy in me because of food intake.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on a good pre-workout meal at 5:00 AM? Would a protein shake prior as soon as I get up be sufficient and then do I follow up with a full meal around 7:30?

    Thanks,
    Patrick

    A protein shake before is just fine or if you can't stomach it all at once you can drink it wile working out. Then either get a good protein meal right after the workout or drink another protein shake.

    If you want a boost, why not make a smoothie, using some protein powder, a little oatmeal[get some carbs], then perhaps some fresh fruit, an apple, a banana and another fruit[orange perhaps?] all mixed up. Might seem high on sugar, but the calories are not high and you will have three fruits in you before 6am, oatmeal and protein.
