    So im wondering for the people around here who are a little more serious about boxing. If you work out in the mornings (8:30am-ish) do you eat breakfast before or after your workout? assuming your doing more then a run of course

    I never eat before training.
    Nothing hurts more than being hit in the stomach with even a small amount of food in there.

    I work Midnight to 8am so It depends on how I feel usually I eat eggs earlier in my shift then go work out or sometimes i go home sleep a couple hours then go to the gym, it really depends on what type of work out I'm doing that day.

    Unless you're attempting to lose bodyfat there's no good reason to not eat before training.

    My ritual involves taking these needles in my ass.
    I don't know what's in em' but my coach gives em to me, and I can so sooooo many reps.

    Makes me rampage sometimes, and my ***** tits would be nicer if they ain't had so many damn zits, but i'm swole as #$%$ so who cares right???

    Bodyfat's not connected with meal timing.

    I would always eat before my morning runs. First thing i did was get a banana or w/e and then get ready for my run.

    I thought one would start burning muscle before they burn fat if they dont eat properly.

    I need that extra energy :bbb

    I would never do any kind of hard training without eating SOMETHING first. Just makes me feel weak and interrupts the quality of the workout. Even if it's just a bagel or fruit, just something.

    Except sparring. If I was doing that in the morning I'd just get up early and eat a few hours before.
