Carter,

I was wondering what your view is on how soon one should have their first feeding of the day on a non-workout day. For example, I get up at 5:30am and I do not eat my breakfast until 6:30am. I generally have some green tea upon awakening. Do you believe it would be better from a body comp/health perspective to strive to have your first feeding sooner (ex. 6am)? Thanks.

Any benefit or detriment is probably inconsequential (assuming you do eat by 6:30am).

Carter,
I train first thing in the morning, starting Phase II of S2B on Monday. Would my first serving of Surge be sufficient? Lately, I've just been sipping my first serving during warm up and the first few minutes of training. I'm wondering if I should actually have this prior.

Thanks in advance!
Jonny

I currently train clients in the early mornings 5:00am, and I often get asked what is the best pre workout meal. I usually tell them a peace of fruit would surfice for the hour, and then follow that up with whey and glutamine powder with water. Their body composition levels are low so lean mass is not of a concern, but does the fruit intake comply to what you're talking about as far as pre-meal intakes.

Pre-resistance training meals should be 10 habits compliant.

Consuming Surge as your only feeding immediately pre-workout is much better than nothing at all but ideally, one would want a 10 habits compliant meal (or shake) followed by the Surge followed by the workout and so on and so forth.

Thanks for the reply. I plan on making surge one of my pre-workout consumptions for my clients in the future as i plan to open up my own training facility in 2 months. Is there anything els i could add to my pre-workout program? I'm currently using the 10 habits for myself and clients along with the 7 habits. those who follow it have seen the results.

Should this pre-workout early morning meal be more of a "PW" type meal or an "Anytime" meal? Workout will commence 45-60 minutes after meal. Will also plan to consume one Surge during workout and then one Surge during first 30 minutes after workout.

In what sense are you asking? "Food" wise, it'll be dependent on the given client.

It would be an "anytime" 10 habit compliant meal. As mentioned, Surge is better than nothing (for many individuals at least) but not ideal.

carter, any chance you can give us the best example from PN we could use for pre-workout, aswell as the appropriate timing.
how about achocalate peanute butter shake (liquid) as oppose to
berry oatmeal or bran porridge (solid)
cheers!
