For the longest time when I was younger I would ask people what to eat pre-workout and it was always the same crap advice. Well not crap advice because there is a good point to it but it just wasn’t working for me. If you’re eating carbs before your workouts and lacking drive this is for you!
For example, I would have a bowl of brown rice pasta and some ground chicken breast and instead of feeling amped up for a work out I just wanted to sleep.
Then came the fix. I learned that carbs play a major role on certain neurotransmitters specifically serotonin so it actually takes away from your neural drive. So the solution was to have carbs in a meal prior to your pre workout meal or have zero carbs period till post training or during training.
Let’s say I am training first thing in the morning. So I wake up and I want some sort of fast acting protein so I pick a quality whey isolate like Hydropure by Nutrabolics and a tablespoon of MCT oil.
The protein is clearly to help maintain and positive nitrogen balance and the MCT also act as protein sparing and as a fuel source when carbs are low! Not to mention it is thermogenic.
MCTs stand for Medium Chain Triglyceride. Basically what that means is it’s not a long fatty acid but a short one therefore it does not require a ton of enzymatic actions to help the be utilized as a fuel source. It’s basically instant energy!
Now since you have a fuel source and are not eating carbs before training your neural drive should actually be much better for training.
