I have decided I want to be a Navy Diver for a career. I have been lifting 2.5 years now and have made a lot of progress. I need help on setting up a meal plan for this. I have never added swimming into a workout routine before so I am not sure of the caloric requirements for a person.
I’m 6’2 250lbs 17-20% bf
My workout consists of 1 hour of swimming upon waking Monday-Friday, two circuit training sessions on Monday and Wednesday and a heavy day on Saturday.
Monday workouts consist of 4 circuits 10-12 reps of chest, shoulders, triceps, and traps. Each circuit has no rest between movements and 60 seconds rest at end of circuit.
Wednesday workouts consist of 4 circuits 10-12 reps of legs, back, and biceps. Each circuit has no rest between movements and 60 seconds rest at end of circuit.
Saturday workouts are full body heavy lifts 3 lifts per body part 3 sets of 4-6 reps
This is what I eat daily right now
Meal 1. 3 Jumbo eggs and 4 slices of bacon
Meal 2. 8 ounces of beef and a cucumber
Meal 3. 7 ounces of pork or chicken 4.5 ounces of spinach
Meal 4. 8 ounces of beef and a zucchini
Pre-workout 1 serving of Surge WO Fuel
Meal 5. 7 ounces of salmon or tuna
Meal 6. 3 jumbo eggs and 4 slices of bacon
I have been on this diet for quite sometime with great success but with the added swimming I don’t think that I will be getting enough food. I was thinking of taking a serving of Surge upon waking on my way to the morning swim and adding sandwiches and spaghetti this is what I was thinking:
Pre Swim 1 serving of Surge
Meal 1 on non lift days 3 jumbo eggs and 4 slices of bacon
Meal 1 on lifting days Power Shake(2 servings of protein powder, 1 cup of milk, 1 serving of oats, and two servings of natural PB)
Meal 2. 8 ounces of meat, 1 cucumber
Meal 3. 7 ounces of meat, 4.5 ounces of spinach
Meal 4. 8 ounces of meat, 1 zucchini
On lift days Pre workout 1 serving of Surge
Meal 5. Spaghetti and spinach
Meal 6. 1 serving protein powder with water
Meal 7. 3 jumbo eggs and 4 slices of bacon
Do you guys think that this will be sufficient? I don’t want to lose to much muscle mass in this transition into my new career path. Any suggestions are welcome
