Snack during workout?

I typically wake up at 4:45am and have a scoop of protein with some milk (about 15-20g protein in scoop) + a tsp of peanut butter.

WOD at 5:15 and i play basketball from about 6am - 7:15am
currently i go home, shower, breakfast and go to work.

should i be squeezing something in between the WOD and basketball?
I don't have hunger issues, but am concerned if I should be getting some post wod nutrition to maximize my gains.

any input would be great

if it helps, typical day (6'2, 200lbs)
4:45 am - protein / milk + tsp peanut butter
7:30am - protein shake, w/ banana + peanut butter
9:30am - greek yogurt
12 - spinach salad + chicken breast w/ oil and vinegar
2:30 - apple + almonds or string cheese
5pm - low sodium turkey
7:30pm - meat / fish / chicken + vegetables

Re: Snack during workout?

My stomach would rebel if I tried to wedge food between two workouts like that. YMMV, in part depending on how intense the basketball game is.

It's hard to say without portion sizes, but there's a good chance you're not eating enough in general. You get up before 5 and your first real meal isn't until noon?

Yes generally that's a good idea.

Maybe so, but you can train your stomach to accept stress just like you can train a muscle.
