Someone just pm’d me for my workout and routine so I thought I’d just share it incase anyone else would like to know.
It’s probably not perfect but it has worked well for me, here it is
I have been working out 3-4 times per week full body workout.
A typical week would be this
Monday flat bench press 5-6 reps, seated row 8 rep sets,
abs on decline bench holding dumbell 12 rep sets,
Tuesday, incline bench press 5-6 reps, pull ups, shoulder press, squats 8 reps,
Then on thursday and friday repeat.
After most workouts I do 15-20 mins cardio on a machine. (pretty high intensity)
I try to eat every 2 hours no matter what, with carbs just in the morning and more fat in the evening with protein all the time.
However if i feel like a piece of fruit or some vegies I usually go for it at any time of the day. I eat quite a lot of kiwi fruit which are high in fibre.
I eat mandarin’s for the vitamin C, and some apples and bananna’s for good measure.
I have to say, quite a lot of the time I am hungry to some extent, as although I dont really count calories, I eat the same things everyday and I know approximately how much i’m eating and it’s working to me.
I think aslong as you eat regularly you shouldnt get too many cravings for sugar.
If you feel like a cheat meal, or just really hungry, as I did last weekend what I suggest is to just have an extra bowl of oatmeal, or steam a big pot of different vegies and just eat (nearly) as many as you want.
On non-workout days I try to go for a 20 minute run up and down a hill I live next too before breakfast(with my top off if it’s sunny to get a bit of a tan for my abs )
Oh and lastly, I am a university student, and everyday I don’t leave home without at least 1-2 200 gram cans of tuna and 250-500 grams of cottage cheese, and 2-3 pieces of fruit. In addition to my post workout drink etc.
I only drink green tea and water other than workout drinks.
Sorry if this is kinda hard to read, I had an exam today and another yesterday and I’m abit mentally tired, hope I can be of help to some people though, cheers and goodluck!
I’ll probably post some pic’s once I get a digital camera.
