I will be switching up my six-day/week training program (one area of the body per day) after a long summer. I have seen some of the best gains ever now that I have a good sense of what I’m doing. I’m also doing most of this on a budget since I’m still an on-campus college student.
Anyways, my new program will be a three-day/week training program (with one day rest in between) that hits the big exercises each day that I lift in order to increase the intensity and volume of my workouts. After reading some of CT’s recent articles, I have really grasped the significance of training based on the physiological response by my body during a given point during my routine for that day. I will also be employing the rep with those thoughts in mind about force and what all goes into the rep.
My supplement program doesn’t entirely suck. But like I said, I am executing the muscle building on a budget plan. So I guess I was hoping to get any advice on the best way to go about the training program with that budget in mind. The only supplements I have are whey protein powder (Vitamin Shoppe Whey Tech Pro 24), Biotest L-Leucine, and I am waiting on getting my order of Alpha-GPC sometime soon this week.
I usually like to get my protein shake in with some whole-grain bread with a generous portion of natural peanut butter spreaded and a banana for some immediate carbs and protein. Then I go get an additional meal without starchy carbs. I am about 150lbs., 10% bf, and my goal is to reach 165 to 170lbs. one year from now (at longest). Any suggestions about how I should go about “stacking” my real food with my supplements before and after workout would be appreciated. Or even a link is fine.
