      Ive always trained in the afternoon between 4 & 5pm, its becoming a bit of a hassle and theres a new gym thats opened that opens at 6:30am instead of 10am (my gym)


      Im thinking about joining this new gym and taking advantage of the early starts and getting there for 7am.

      Only thing worrying me is - will I be weak as Ive not ate any food as by normally 5pm I have had most of my day time meals and im all energised up.

      What times do you train and what times do you think are best ?

      Some of my biggest lifts were done at 7.00am.

      Just take a bcaa and carb drink and sip whilst training.

      You should be using energy from the day before anyway. A lot of it is mental. You have the energy there to use.

      You will probably feel a little odd for a week or so then your body will adapt and all will be fine.

      I changed a while back from 5-6pm to 07:30-08:00 and made my best gains that early in the morning.

      Couldn't lift for shlt at first though, took a while to be able to lift my normal amount, but shot past where i was training later in the day. I now train about 10am.

      When I first started training early mornings, I was really worried about not having the food in me & so on.

      Admittedly it took a bit of getting used to. The first time, your body is giving it "what the fcuk are you doing - I don't do this sh1t before breakfast", but after a few workouts it's all fine.

      Nowadays I train at home. If I'm working I train after work, but at weekends I always train before breakfast. Don't notice any difference whatsoever in energy levels or strength on weights, but notice that cardio is much more comfortable on an empty stomach.

      I don't even bother with carb drinks or BCAA's. A cup of tea & I'm ready for anything.
