Greetings Cliff, thank you for your great articles. I am new to the lifting game and am still trying to make sense feeding my body properly. I am a morning routine guy and I cant seem to find many articles out there that are focused around AM routines. In the past, i have noticed that eating before a workout can make me feel sick to me stomach while training. Now, I am taking a pre-workout supplement and it seems to be working great. My question is do I need to be eating before I hit the gym or keep on the pre-workout supp? I am a 28 year male, 205 lbs with 21% body fat. I have always been tall and skinny until this year. I would like to keep gaining muscle but need to drop some body fat. I am eating 5-6 times a day. If possible, let me know yoour insight. Take care man!

Cliff,

I have read several of your articles and am impressed by your comprehensive level of detail. Judging by the number of comments and ratings, it seems like you have been able to spread your knowledge to a wide audience. In regard to helping your online community, I was hoping you could post an article with an actual routine for intermediate-level lifters. I have scoured the internet for a decent routine, but I haven't found anything that seems to follow all of the recommendations you make. If you addressed this topic, I think your articles would have a more holistic impact on readers.

Thanks!
Elias
