    Best pre-work out foods time wise?

    Are there certain foods that would be more advantageous than others to consume a few hours 1 - 3 hours PRE work out and foods that would be good maybe 30 minutes before?

    Degree of incline for bench?

    30 degrees? 45 degrees?

    Does it even matter? Am I nitpicking?
