Simple Early Morning Fueling Options

Here are some options for fueling your early morning workouts so you are adequately hydrated and fueled:
  • Eat a quick and easy snack with about 200 to 400 calories (depending on your body size and workout intensity).
  • Wake up 4 hours before important training sessions/events, eat a simple breakfast (bread + peanut butter), then go back to bed.
  • Eat your breakfast the night before via a bedtime snack.
  • Fuel during your workout.
