    Need a more suitable PRE-workout fix!

    Shop Now
    Right, so here it is. On a workout day, I have 4 rashers of bacon and 3x eggs when I wake up. A couple of hours later I shall have a banana....20 minutes later i'll have my pre-gym coffee then another 5-10 minutes I shall hit the metal.

    This has been doing me well. I have managed to join the 100k squat club, a 50kg overhead press, 115k dead, 70k bench and a venerable 65k bent over row. I'm 168lbs and am enjoying my progression. But I am beginning to get gassed and I think I need more in the tank to keep the power-outage up during lifting.

    I think the banana isn't cutting it.

    What are some good pre-workout snacks/shakes that keep you kicking ass during heavy lifting (3x5 heavy stuff)

    Mark's recent post mentioning MCT oil has me intrigued as a possible pre-workout alternative. Evidently it's rapid ketogenic energy, which sounds ideal to me.
    Makin moves. Makin money. Makin bacon.

    A little bit of starch from oats, rice or potatoes pre-workout ain't gonna kill you. Especially not if you don't need to lose weight and are trying to bulk up.

    If that sounds like too much of a stretch then you might add a second fruit in the morning before your workout, or stuff your breakfast meal with tomatoes, bell peppers and carrots.
