What’s your pre workout routine?

By | March 26, 2015

While there are many similarities in people’s pre workout routines, there are also many differences. I find this quite interesting, and would love to hear about what everyone does.

Please comment below with things such as:

  • Do you go to a gym?outdoor workout Maybe you work out at home, or in a park, or something else even?
  • What time do you do it? Do you have routine or is it always different?
  • Do you eat first?
  • Do you take a pre workout?
  • Etc etc

My routine

I havegym a fairly consistent routine. Every day I get up at 5am and  make my girlfriend a coffee. I also make myself a decaf at the same time. I then mix up a drink which is a combination of supplements and a pre workout. The recipe is constantly changing but at the moment it is DAA, L-Glutamine, BCAA, AAKG, Creatine Monohydrate and this morning I mixed in a large scoop of Bullnox. I down that and then sip on my decaf coffee while chatting with my partner. I usually leave the gymhouse within the next 30 minutes. Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings I go to the gym and lift weights. Tuesday, Thursday and one day on the weekend I go for a run (depending on the surf – if the waves are good I sometimes skip the weekend run).

    Don’t work out too much these days – getting a bit long in the tooth. The push ups and bench press tend to give me the bursitis in the shoulders, so I don’t bother. Part of getting old I guess. Used to work out a lot and I found that going to the gym on an empty stomach worked the best for me. The digestion process takes a lot of blood away from the muscles to the stomach. Fresh juice is ok though, because it brings its own enzymes for digestion – not immediately before the workout, about 30 to 60 minutes. Then only water during the workout and lots of it.

      Thanks Andrew – great rundown. I also go on an empty stomach, apart from the coffee and pre workout. Also, I say you’re never too old!
