Been trying to smash some iron for the last 3.5 years. Have hit some decent numbers as I’m at a master’s raw total. But, I’ve not gotten serious about nutrition, sleep or cutting booze.
Nutrition: I eat whatever I want but focus generally getting enough protein in, stay away from sugary foods, and pay little attention to fat (other than not eating fried foods).
Booze: Way too much red wine. I consider bottles to be single servings.
Sleep: 18.5" neck is trying to kill me, diagnosed with an AHI at 65 and O2 desaturation at 69. So I struggle here as I’m not always compliant with using my CPAP.
So curious. If I actually get my shit together with diet and sleep, how much of a difference would it make. Like, I’ll get newbie gains again? I’m sure some of you trained for a while, then took nutrition seriously so I’m curious about what kind of strides you’ve made
