We’ve all been in the position where we have a workout planned but havent eaten enough beforehand or are just not sure what to eat to get the most out of our training. A properly timed pre workout meal with the right nutrients can really boost your workout. So here are a few ideas for quick and easy pre workout meals.

1. Protein porridge with a twist.

Add a sachet of oats (or one serving) and approximately 1/3 of a tub of low fat yogurt together in bowl then mix to make a porridge like consistency. If you’re wanting to put on size try adding a scoop of whey protein and chopped fruit.

2. The “in a rush” pre workout meal.

2 bananas, 1 scoop of whey protein, 300ml almond milk. Blend it, down it, leave.

3. The instagramer’s pre workout meal.

2 slices of granary toast, covered with smashed avocado, poached eggs and garnished with sprinkle of pink himalyan sea salt. This gets all your macronutrient needs to fuel a workout, and also between 30-40 likes depending on how good your photography skills are.


You should leave at least 1-2 hours to let your food digest but if you’re like me and need a full belly to train, try one of these and then right before you set off just pop up with a handful of nuts or a piece of fruit.

If these aren’t enough ideas for you, here’s a blog from our archive with some more food suggestions!
