I’ll be doing a research program in China for two months and of course I’ll be lifting there. There are gyms around where I work I already know but not sure as to their quality. If they suck I’ll find a better one.
Anyway, I’m planning to do the 12-week Thibadeu olympic program, but I’ll be there for 8 weeks and will have to take a 2 week break afterwards and will probably want a week break the first week when I’m jetlagged as fuck. So I’m thinking to do the first two weeks of the first block, and th emiddle two weeks of the other two blocks.
It’ll be my first time focusing on olympic lifting, and although I focus on bodybuilding generally I feel like this would be a good opportunity, where I won’t have as much nutrition freedom, to work on power. Thoughts?
As for nutrition, anything I should know about China? We get a meal card and I’ll find a grocery store and get a nuts and beef jerky supply for snacks, anyone know about prices there?
How about supplements? Can you buy whey there? Is there anything illegal I should know about? I’m planning to just bring over some whey, creatine+dextrose, fish oil, and a multiV. Should I stock up on bars before I go or are there GNCs or some equivelant there? Can you order supplements to there alright?
