    why is it not optimal? i dont want to run for very long because i'll get my heart rate too high and burn too many calories. i'm no scientist, so i could be wrong. i just run short and fast to get a little cardio in and rest my muscles in between my workout. i'll add that i'm currently gaining weight, not trying to lose

    Hey guys,

    I'm starting to get back into the gym after being out for 6 months due to school. I usually go in the afternoon, but I also want to start going in the morning also hitting the gym twice a day then, 3x week doubling up on supersets (morning and evening weights), and the other 3x a week doing morning weights and afternoon cardio.

    What do you recommend for a morning workout friendly breakfast? Should I also start taking a pre-workout so I can hit the gym with a higher intensity? I'm thinking Muscle Pharm assault.

    Floor presses will increase your bench.

    Incline DB presses, dumbbells held with palms facing each other, dumbbells pressed against each other.

    Do any of you guys drink coffee? I had given up coffee for lent, and used to only drink a cup pretty much every morning. Had one this morning, dang! I had forgotten how good a cup of coffee can make you feel sometimes. :D Stupid caffeine!!!

    What are y'alls opinions on one cup every morning and exercise? I usually exercise after 1 pm. Or any opinions over coffee for that matter.

    When I went off it for lent, I was feeling all the withdrawal symptoms of caffeine for a few days. Then I just felt less energetic than usual for the rest of lent but I didn't notice it anymore towards the end, felt pretty good.

    Then I went and had a cup this morning! Whoooo! :D

    I fuckin love coffee! But ever since I've been taking thermogenic pills I had to cut down on drinking it. Also it's very acidic.

    Too be honest I think it's a great natural preworkout (if you drink it black)

    ..stay tuned
    That shit is like crack. Way too much intensity for me.

    I had one of their sample packs which came with my last supp order. No denying that it works.. probably wouldn't want to get dependent on it for a good workout. Thats the problem with pre-workouts, its easy to mentally think you need it. Then if you don't take it you don't push as hard.

    I find once you push thru the first 10 minutes and get a good sweat going you don't need a pre-workout. 10 minutes on the stair climber or stationary bike to get the heart rate up and a sweat on before lifting works good for me. Just gotta push thru that laziness feeling.

    NO Xplode is kind of fun for the pumps. Again, don't want to get addicted to it to feel you NEED IT for your workout.

    How do you guys stick to eating healthy being away from home, like a vacation and stuff like that. What happens to your work out routines?
