    Donating before or after the gym? If before just be careful, your body will be alot more prone to fatigue.

    Eat and drink lots right after you donate, then go in but be conservative.

    I worked out a few hours after I donated and didn't notice anything. i think that if you are like 120 it might make it hard to work out but at the time i donated i was 220.
