Im gonna have to start lifting at like 4 am in order to get my lifts in....

What can people recommend in order to take that doesnt cause issues like a racing heart or stuff like that?

dedication and motivation.... will get your ass up every morning and doing it.

on your other topic. black coffee. keep your stomach light. somedays make your own protein shakes before working out. consumed quick. also vitamin b early will give you a boost. avoid pre workout drinks with high doses of stimulants.

supps? universal. animal paks gave me motivation every day for a while before gear.

and bring your best work out tracks to get you in gear

There is nothing other than pre workout stimulants
Unless you have the motivation Spartacus is talking of
And sounds like you don't. Preworkout
Drinks will wake you up. You just have to experiment
And find the right dosage that won't give you
That racie feeling.
I use 1MR. I have water on my night stand.
Set the alarm 30 min early. Get up drink the
1MR.go right back to sleep. 30 min later, Bam!!
You're wide awake. No dragging your ass around.
Works well for me. I feel great and I have a great workout.

I use 1MR.

tons of pre work out sups in the market. that one being one of the most costly. dose wise....to those who are sensitive to stimulants there is "stim" free sups.
article on "arginine" causing veins to constrict not allowing blood to flow freely causing elevated blood pressure, making it seem like the user is full of energy in reality the heart is being fooled.

regardless. I set my coffee maker the night before it has my pre work out ready for when I wake up. that was when I worked out early.

btw....I hope spongy chimes in on this supp topic.

being a post whore....sorry.

and as jax said. finding the correct dose for you. may be underdose or over normal dose depending on tolerance. a good tip is to also take weeks off a stim.

I'm in this boat, Mate. What's been said is correct. Only dedication will see you through. No amount of caffeine is going to drag your ass out of bed at Ohh-Dark-Hundred if you're not already committed to doing so.

In time it gets easier. I've been training before work around the same time slot you mentioned for years. Your body will adapt. Stay the course.

I get up at 3:00 and workout from 3:30-4:45. As soon as I wake and head to the kitchen, I mix a cup of 1MR with water. Always helps me get going at that ungodly hour!!

honest, id drink a pre WO within a hr of when you wake up.....

if you get up in the middle of the night or close to when you wake up drinking the Pre WO would be great. also drinking 10-14oz of liquid will have to make you pee which will wake you up naturally.

id try that. and maybe a carwash shower (in and out in 2 min) just to further help wake you up.

I like protein right at wake up then 15 minutes later hit some pre workout been using NO explode. When I am dropping weight might also stick a thermagenic in as well which gives caffeine. By the time I start working out I am ready to go. I give around 30 minutes from wake up to starting my stretching.

its not lack of motivation, its lack of having to wake this early for the last 15 years!! i have not had to get out of bed this early for that long...

1mr might be something i look into thanks

Take two spoons and crush a 200mg caffeine tab and mix it into 4oz hot tap water.
90 day supply $3.48 at Wal-Mart.

Save your money and thank me afterwards.
