Re: Pre-workout Nutrition and Energy/Performance Problems

Try eating 1.5h-2h before and have a quick snack before the workout. You can also snack on something like grapes or raisins throughout the workout besides.

If you eat just before the workout, your body may have less blood to go around because it is using more to digest the food in your stomach.

Speaking from experience, I do not reccomend protein/carb (endurox,etc) drinks on metcon days. Fine for Oly or Strength days but not a good combo for the metcon, especially if they have any sort of stimulants. Pukie here we come.
