No energy when training is a killer right?

Every rep, every stride feels an ordeal

You have no spring, no zip

 

Its common…

Particularly if you train early morning or after work?

 

The issue for you though is what can you do…

Time is often a problem as well as how your gut feels!

(fitness 30 minutes after a bowl of porridge isn’t great)

 

The science shows us how different things you eat and drink digest, and how much energy they can give you

 

Ultimately you want things which will give you energy quick…

With minimal digestive time…

That aren’t going to mean you consume a day’s worth of the sugary white stuff in one gulp

 

Back in my elite sporting days we had the same problem

So we spoke with a couple of fantastic sports nutritionists in Oz to solve this, SO…

 

Based on that and my experience I give you these gems to give you an extra gear when you train:

 

  • There has to be some form of carbohydrate

 

If you’re training early when breakfast is only 30 mins before and you’re going to be conditioning/doing fitness, start with low fibre fruits

This will provide quick energy with minimal digestive issues

If you have more time, are training after work, or are only resistance training, you could have some more fibre based carbs like porridge or banana

 

  • What about pro, bro?

 

If you’re doing fitness/conditioning, unless you have 1.5 hours or more before you train your stomach may struggle

Therefore leave your protein until immediately after you’ve trained when your body needs it most for recovery and adaptation

 

If you’re lifting, to prime the body’s cell signalling pathways

(which you need maximise to develop strength optimally)

You really should get your protein in before you train as well as after

 

  • Beverage?

 

When you wake up you’re typically as dehydrated as the Sahara

We know dehydration is linked to tiredness and decreased mental and physical performance

So as soon as you’re up get neck a pint of chilled H2O

 

If you have no body fat issues you could have an isotonic drink early morning which also would have carbohydrates, BUT BUT BUT…

 

Most people we deal with do have a body composition need, and if this is the case, stick with the water

 

And last but not least…

A strong turbo charged coffee will allow that caffeine to excite certain centres in your brain to maximise your work out in terms of fitness and body composition

 

TAKE HOME?

Don’t train on an empty stomach, there’s always a way

(unless you want to feel tired and get less bang for your buck)
