Months training seriously: Zero
I'm 18 live in UK. Ive been interested in Health and Fitness for the past 6 months doing tons of research and reading a few books (starting strength and a few others. I do Muay Thai 6 days a week and I am generally all around healthy (Don't drink/smoke often). I worked out at home for 2-3 months last year doing silly workouts and a mediocre diet and soon after gave up due to motivation not being present. Since then I've researched quite a bit and I now know what It is I need to do to attain my goals. The Muay Thai is really what keeps me focussed as getting the shit kicked out of you by bigger, stronger guys on a day to day basis really keeps you motivated in wanting to go to the gym.
My goal is to eventually be around 190-196 with 7-9% BF.
Rippettoes Starting Strength.
3x5 Bench Press
5x3 Power Cleans
Workouts A and B alternate on 3 non-consecutive days per week.
Chin-ups Monday 3 sets to failure
Pull-ups Friday 3 sets to failure
No ab work I get enough of this through Muay Thai.
This is a rough outline of my diet*
2 egg whites, 2 eggs. 1.5 cup oatmeal with 2 cups milk. Glass of milk.
1 bananna, 1 pear, 2 table spoons of peanut butter. 2 cups milk.
Turkey Breast and pesto in grilled cheese sandwhich. Lots of salad. Glass of milk.
Dinner/pre training meal: 5PM
Pasta/noodles + 4oz meat with tons of veg.
6:30 PM - 8:00PM: Muay Thai
Cottage cheese + Protien Shake with 2 cups milk.
10:30: SLEEP. I get about 9.5 hours sleep a night. I find that 8 isn't enough and leaves me tired during the day.
Supplements: Essential Fatty Acids, ON Whey Protien. Multi-Vit will have to wait as I'm short of cash this month.
Gain functional strength and get up to around 190-196 with 7-8%BF.
