Re: Feeling beat

I'm not sure that I agree with all the advice to make sure you get up earlier and eat before training because that doesn't work for me. I'd rather get to stay in bed a little bit longer, wake up, maybe have a coffee and then go train making sure that I eat and drink plenty straight away afterwards. And it goes without saying to make sure that you are eating plenty of fat through the rest of the day to help you recover (meat, fish, fish oil, milk, avocado, olive oil, nut oil, coconut etc etc)

I guess you can't really answer these because everyone's mileage will vary. Haha. Just musing.
The normal REM cycle is about an hour and a half. Whenever I try to "sleep in" for less than this time I don't think I feel any better than if I had just gotten up and made use of the time.

I agree. And I personally can't stomach anything bulky in the morning at 5:30 before I workout. The shake has actually worked pretty well for me.
