I am a recreational lifter and aspiring powerlifter at 88kg, 21 YEARS OLD (squat:200kg (440lbs) Deadlift:220kg (485lbs) Bench: 160kg (352lbs) not great totals but only started training last year following a debilitating knee injury which put my basketball ambitions to rest.
Anyway, the story goes that every 4 to 6 weeks i get ILL without fail!!! High temperature, fever, coughing up mucus and dizziness, so not ‘man flu’ as some might claim. My diet is around 120grams protein daily/80gram carbs, lots of broccoli and veg. ANY1 KNOW IF DEPLETING FAT FROM UR DIET HAS DETRIMENTAL EFFECTS AS I DO NOT EAT MUCH FAT. (i do snack on peanuts and sunflower seeds though. Fruit juice and i also take l arginine supplement and a regular whey protein powder when i can afford it, RECENTLY BOUGHT A VITAMIN C 1000MG SUPPLEMENT AND IT DOESNT SEEM TO WORK?
ANY IDEAS? I AM REALLY SICK OF GETTING ILL ALL THE TIME AND IT IS KILLING MY PROGESSS SO BADLY! ANYONE WITH ANY EXPERIENCE ON ALTERATIONS I CAN MAKE TO MY DIET WOULD BE A GREAT HELP. MY 4DAY SPLIT IN THE GYM IS AS FOLLOWS:
MONDAY: BENCH PRESS, DECLINE BENCH, DUMBBELL PRESS,
SHOULDER PRESS, MILITARY PRESS, WEIGHTED TRICEP DIPS,
SPEED PULLS WITH UP TO 100KG…
WEDNESDAY: SQUATS/ LUNGES/ PULLUPS/ BARBELL ROWS/ T BAR ROWS/ KROC ROWS/ CABLE PULL THROUGHS
FRIDAY: LENGTHY WARM UP, ROMANIAN DEADLIFTS FOLLOWED BY DEADLIFTS
ANY SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOME. THANKS ALOT
