meal before training

posted Jul 25, 2014 20:59:27 by koryjames
I am on a recomp diet, I go to the gym at about 5-530 pm and have a shake at about 3-330 pm before the gym. My first meal starts at 5 am so my 6 meals are spread about ever 3 hours throughout the day. My question is I know I am supposed to eat an hour before I lify but will a shake be sufficient since my last food meal doesn't hit till around 8-830?

Sure will. gets some good fats in that shake. either mix peanut or almond butter in it, or eat nuts. get 40 to 50 grams of carbs from oats or a carb powder.

yep, but look at the back and make sure the ingredients are just peanuts because a lot say all natural but have a ton of other shit in there. If your are bulking you don't need to be too picky about it tho.

If you're looking into natural butters Manbake has some quality stuff, but it's pretty expensive compared to other brands. Not bad on price if it's like a tablespoon or two post-workout. Most of the time I just use the Skippy Natural which is far from natural haha.
