I’ve been roaming around this site for at least a couple years now, but you’ll notice this is my first post. I’m posting with the hopes of receiving some constructive criticism regarding my nutritional strategy and training program. Current stats are as follows: 27 years old, 6’3", 260 lbs, 10% bf. I have been training seriously for approx. 5 years, prior to which was spent mostly training sport-specific with a strong focus on cardiovascular work.
A typical day looks something like this. Feel free to take note, 'cause I’m about to put on a clinic:
500 mls egg whites, 1 whole omega-3 egg, 2 slices turkey bacon, 1 grapefruit, 1 avocado
8 oz lean beef or salmon fillet, mixed veggies
[Work out - 40 mins cardio]
8 oz tuna fillet, mixed veggies, 2 oz almonds/organic peanut or almond butter
Meal 4 (1 hour pre-workout)
8 oz chicken breast, 1 cup cooked brown rice, mixed veggies
[Work out - weights, cardio only pre-contest]
Meal 5 (immediately post-workout)
8 oz chicken breast, 2 cups cooked brown rice, mixed veggies
8 oz white fish fillet, mixed veggies
500 mls egg whites, 1 omega-3 egg, 1 avocado or 2 tbsp organic peanut/almond butter
Nutritionally speaking, I’m currently in a post-contest phase (read lean bulk) so will throw in a cheat meal 2 or 3 times a week, but my food choices remain sensible. Keeping bodyfat levels in check is a priority, hence my morning cardio session - steady-state, heart rate approx. 120 bpm.
I intend on stepping on stage again in July, where I will compete in the BCABBA Championships. I qualified by placing 3rd at the '09 SWCF back in November, my first show.
