View Full Version : Boost before the gym
10-15-2003, 02:06 PM
I have one of my meals about two hours before i go to the gym BUT i'm looking for some sort of boost i.e food/drink, shortly (Edit: by shortly i mean at least an hour before if food) before i go to the gym... anyone?

I don't eat anything IMMEDIATELY before... but I like to have a protein shake about 45mins before lifting
you can buy lots of premixed shakes, or simply toss some protein powder in a shaker cup and add water to it before going to the gym

I try to always get something at least 30 minutes before going. Anything closer to working out and I get sick and anything further away and I get hungry.
Maybe an extra boost of caffiene or something might do the trick.

I've ate dates a few times before a workout and they've always given me a boost.
They're a highly concentrated source of carbs, and they contain good minerals.
A nice glass of OJ seems to help out my lifts

Try some Cytomax... I've done some looking around about this stuff and the guys who competetively (SP?) ride bikes love the stuff. I bought some buy haven't had a chance to see if it does anything for me.

Lately I've been taking 1 serving of Gatorade powder mix (about 15g dextrose) w/ 5g creatine right before I leave for the gym. Seems to work for me just fine.
