I am a 21 year old, 5’6, 165lbs guy studying at university.
I am currently training high repetitions with kettlebells/bodyweight exercises and intense cardiovascular training activities. my current goal was to get lean, which with this training I can say I am. I am sitting around 10% BF at 165lbs at the minute.
Due to my schedule of classes at university I can only manage 3 meals per day.
my diet looks like…
Breakfast = bowl of porridge with 2 scoops of whey protein, 2 eggs and a portion of green vegetables.
2nd meal = 2 chicken breasts, 3 eggs and green vegetables.
3rd meal = steak, 3 eggs and broccoli.
and before bed I would have 2 scoops of whey protein and a banana.
(the meat in these meals vary from red meats to poultry to fish of different days)
I am currently planning on changing my goal to adding more lean muscle mass to my body.
To do this I am going to change my training to incorporate lower reps in exercises such as squats, deadlifts, chin-ups, rows, presses, cleans and snatches.
My only problem is tweaking my diet.
I think I should be adding carbs such as sweet potatoes and brown rice into my diet. is this correct???
If so I would find it hard to afford such meals as I am already out a fortune with my current diet…supplements and rent.
Are there less expensive alternatives to bulking foods??
