Breakfast - Timing and workout

Ok Im looking to do the WOD in the mornings perhaps @ 6:30

Id have to wake up approximately 6 o clock. DO I skip breakfast and have it after the WOD or eat it earlier ie wake up eat an hour before or something?

I dont want my porridge to end up on the gym floor is all

Edit: P.s I zone, and dr sears says to eat breakfast within 1 hour of waking up

Re: Breakfast - Timing and workout

You could probably work out fasted and use your breakfast as your post workout meal, or break up your breakfast into a smaller block Rx (i.e eat something small before working out and then eat the rest after).

Workout fasted man. It isn't for everyone, but if you haven't tried it you might like it. I find that "hunger" feeling a motivator through tough workouts. Porridge as a PWO meal sounds like a winner.

I do like the fasting idea, I suppose Ill have to make sure I have enough stored energy from the day before if its a hard workout. And on strength days I can eat breakfast before

Re: Breakfast - Timing and workout

Workout out fasted can take some time to get used to but it is awesome. You just wake up and go and then your so beat from the WOD that after once you fuel up you can almost feel the nutrients going into your muscles and replenishing your body.
