    Running out of Fuel...




    I notice myself getting tired quickly during workouts...

    Any advice on pre-workout snacks?

    Currently on 40/30/30 CARB/PRO/FAT eating 2400 calories per day.
    Life ain't a track meet, it's a marathon.

    Maybe a piece of fruit to boost your glucose levels a bit for some energy and then you can burn it off during your workout.

    I had a banana and cereal yesterday...

    Still felt a little weak, doesn't fruit wear off quickly?

    fruit is a slow absorbing carb.

    glucose is fast, so it would wear off quickly.

    If you are "tired" mentally, not muscularly, shoot for complex carbs like 3-4 hours prior to workout.

    Muscularly I might think dextrose would replete some glycogen about 30-60mins prior. Worked on a TKD quite well.

    Yeah, actaully feels more mental. My actually muscles aren't tired..kinda hard to explain.

    Ill try the complex carbs as per "wannabestrong"' advice, and see what happens.

    Thanks for fruit tips, Celestial.
