Default Pre workout protein

At the moment I'm just having 1/2 a cup of oats 30-45 mins before my workout.
Is this all I need? Or do I have to get some protein in too.
I don't think I could stomach a shake pre workout though.

I like to work out about an hour after a meal. Might just be "bro-science" but it seems to work.

Leave your ego at the door.
Prepare. Showing up dehydrated, hungry, and tired will guarantee failure.
Be ready to fight for that grinder of a PR.
Listen and learn. Absorb everything you can, and assimilate that knowledge.

But seriously, I don't think it matters all that much. I see guys on here training in a fasted state early in the morning. They seem to be getting along just fine as long as their total calories for the day are giving them what they need.

I just have normal meals and time the workouts around them; I have to say though, if a meal is big or slow digesting, squatting is no fun at all...I learned my lesson on that one.


Try something and if it works for you then stick with it, as said, some train fasted as well; it's not a bad idea to track pre-workout food and timing in your log somewhere, that way you can gauge any changes you make and any reactions you have in relation to either food volume or new food as well as the timing of it and how it does or does not affect set exercises...for example, you may be fine with a heavier meal prior to a predominantly upperbody workout but it may be a very bad move before a squat/deadlift style session.

Thanks for the comments.
Is the pre workout meal strictly for energy then? Or does it have some part in muscle growth?

Yeah, good idea.
I don't do too well with allot of food in my stomach, especially liquid which was why I didn't want to take a protein shake pre workout.
