Get tanked, and eat nothing but easy mac and handfuls of nuts.
Seriously though, you were probably getting tired because you were eating too light before class. Eating clean before training is great and all, but you still have to get plenty of calories.
My previous pre work out had more calories than I had this time.
Before I'd make a shake with a banana and blueberries and some spinach and then eat some chicken or turkey sausage. All together I think it came out to like 300-350 calories.
This easy mac pasta shell shit is only like 220 calories, then whatever a handful of walnuts is.
Obviously I don't think junk food is better than clean food. Maybe it's just pasta is much better fuel for my particular body then fruit? I think trying to get my carbs pre workout from fruit was making me crash mid training session?
Probably a fluke, but I'll continue the experiment and report back. Gonna train tomorrow. Currently having my two beer's.
