Why no fruit pre work out?


Recommended Posts

Carb's aren't necessarily BAD preworkout, protein and fat is just better. Eating protein and fat peri workout, signals glucagon, which is basically the hormone opposite to insulin. Insulin stuffs things into cells for later use; glucagon tells cells that we're going to use that stuff soon.

So it's just priming your body to access your energy stores in the next couple of hours.

Carbs don't cause a glucagon response really. they're all about insulin.

Thanks for the explanation Renee!

I was just worried I was doing a very non-compliant whole30 thing... Still experimenting with this, yesterday I had protein & fat before a wod and it went well, but can't really decide yet which combination works best for me.
