  • eating close to a workout????

    hey guys I have took a year from competing to force feed myself for more growth.i have been doing alot more of eating in the last two months. So I have thrown up a lot more during training session. My question is how long to you guys give your self to digest before hitting the weights? I threw up monday in the middle of my set of deadlifts, it wasn't alot but am I the only one with this problem? I usually wait about and hour before I hit the gym after eating. Perhaps I should tone down the food pre workout

      The last real meal has to be finished 2 hours before a workout for me. 30 minutes prior to it, I usually take BCAA, Glutamine, Glycerol and other supps; and, around 1 hour into the workout (when I see that I won't be done in 60 minutes), 1 and 1/2 scoop of whey isolate. And that's because I too would puke my guts out if I started a lifting session less than 2 hours after a meal.

        I usually eat about an hour before my workout. Works fine for me but I digest food quite fast.

          30 - 60 minutes beforehand. I have a pre/intra workout shake as well. Never had any issues with vomiting except for some queasy stomach aches after doing legs or back.

            I tend to get better results if I lift an hour or so after eating solid food. That gives the food time to settle and leaves me with energy and focus to get a good session in.

              It depends on what you eat and how fast it digests... just listen to your body and do what you're comfortable with...

              If certain foods take you longer to digest, then wait a bit longer...

              It's pretty individual and it ain't rocket science... listen to your body !

                  If you're dead set on eating close to a workout, try something like a 30 gram waxy maize shake, 1 scoop whey iso, and 10 grams bcaa's. That shouldn't sit as heavy and should digest quickly enough that you won't puke.

                  One thing I've found is that for deads or legs, I can't take any pre-workout stims so beware of that as well.

                    Regardless what anyone does you have recognized the problem so adjust to it. Also its not uncommon for compound exercises to make blood pool resulting on nausea.

                      thanks for the feedback guys. I have been trying to adjust to it. I might have to try the waxy pro and glute shake. It seems like it should work better.

                        I think the shake would be your best route... and even that about an hour before... for me, a whole food meal takes around 3-4 hours to completely leave my stomach... so 2 hours is about right (unless it is a small snack).

                            the shake seems to do the trick thanks gentlemen.
