So, long and short is my squat is plateaued at the 230-ish mark, and I can’t figure out why. I’ll try and snap some vids Friday to post in case form is the culprit, but I’m A2G every rep and feel like I’ve been adequately coached at my affiliate to know if something was amiss. I’m sure also a calf/overcompensation injury sustained from a month+ in a boot could also be to blame, but I digress.
Just to get all my bases covered I figure I’d post my regular diet too just to be safe, so here it is.
Breakfast: 3 eggs (fried or scrambled), cheese. Apple, 16 oz whole milk (Lactaid), 1 serving raw almonds (~24 according to the package)
Lunch: Spinach salad with chicken, ~1 tablespoon olive oil/vinegar for dressing
Pre-WO: 12 oz Muscle Milk RTD
Post-WO: 16 oz whole milk, 2 scoops Muscle Milk, 1 scoop Leucine & Creatine, 1 Clif Builder’s protein bar
Dinner: some form of meat (roast, chicken, steak) 4-8 oz, spinach salad with oil/vinegar
Pre-bed: 2 tablespoons all-natural PB, Post-WO drink but without the creatine
I supplement with Fish Oil and Vitamin D, and take my Multi like a good boy. Portion sizes were my best estimate, I don’t have a scale or anything to measure it. I’m trying to keep my diet somewhat clean since I’m training for football. I’ve been doing our summer training program so it’s not like I can deviate from it and do SS, CFFB, or the S&CP. We lift for about an hour, do a short plyometric session (4 exercises max), then condition MW, T/Th we speed and agility work, Friday we just lift and do the short plyo session (no conditioning)
