Favorite Pre workout meal?
What's everyone's favorite pre workout meal?

I usually train first thing in the day, so I make a smoothie about 90 - 120 minutes before lifting.

2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp flax oil
1 - 1.5 scoops whey protein
1/2 cup oats
1 cup of preferred frozen fruit, usually berries or mangoes
2 cups water or 1 1/2 cups juice

It has been working for me awhile but I am starting to get sick of it. Need something that will fuel an intense session.

Honestly lately what I've been doing is one of the following....

If I train early (after first meal):
3 whole eggs
3 egg whites
1 bagel w/ pb
20 oz milk
greek yogurt

And If I'm training later in the day....
2 lbs ground turkey
1 box creamy four cheese riceroni

That right there makes a few meals. I typically eat it pre, post, and then one other meal. A quick warning though, this meal is THE SHIT and you will get addicted and never go back to eating anything else ever again. ;) GAINZ CITY.

Anymore the only thing I ingest preworkout is Optimum Nutritions Amino Energy. More often than not there is a gap of 3-5 hours since my last meal when I lift or I lift fasted first thing in the morning.

I don't.

because every workout I'm doing either squats or deadlifts, food swilling around in my stomach isn't a good idea for me personally. just makes me feel sick.
I suppose it's the compression on the abdomen or something that's intensified with those lifts in particular.

Half an hour before I tend to have a banana or something, but in terms of a pre workout meal, they just don't work for me.

Some sort of lean protein (chicken, turkey, lean beef)
Sweet potato.
1/2 scoop Karbolyn.
tsp of peanut butter.

I work out in the late afternoon. I consume a pre-workout snack about an hour before. I like to have something liquidly, so I consume a bowl of cold cereal. I use a natural brand like Barbaras. I use scoop of protein powder instead of milk. I also add a small handful of raisins, and an even smaller handful of nuts (for some fat to ward off hunger). I put all of these in a bowl, cover it, and keep it by my work desk. Then I add cold water when I am ready to eat it.
