One question to get started in the right direction:
What, exactly, did you eat yesterday?
Two more questions to further narrow things down:
What are your goals?
What exactly does your training look like - days, exercises, sets, and reps?[/quote]
I’m typing this on my phone, so forgive any typos. Yesterday, I had:
46g protein shake (9AM)
34g carbs bowl of oatmeal (9AM)
8 oz. Chicken breast (11:30AM)
2 servings of whole wheat pasta w/ protein (11:30AM)
46g protein shake (1:15)
5g creatine monohydrate (1:15)
2 slices whole grain bread (1:40)
A few handfuls of peanuts scattered throughout the afternoon
Chicken quesadilla with chips and salsa (6PM)
A few more handfuls of peanuts at night
46g protein shake right before bed
Around 140 oz. of water consumed
I’m doing Waterbury’s 30-day program. I just finished the first ten days, and now I’m starting the scheduled five-day rest period. If you haven’t seen the plan, it’s almost entirely compound movements. One-legged deadlifts, chin-ups, rows from varying angles, weighted lunges, dumbbell floor presses, etc.
As for goals, right now I’m tall and fairly skinny. I need to add mass everywhere. If you’re looking for a specific goal to reach over time, something like Ryan Reynolds.
