My name is Jeremy and I'm about a year into strength training and had some questions that some of you could answer. First I train chest and triceps together, it just made sense to me since you use triceps benching, anyways and I've noticed that a lot of people train them apart, or will train chest one day then triceps the next. Now is that like training the same muscle two days in a row because I have always tried to avoid that. Two, I always use different workouts each time I lift. Should I use the same ones for a month or so, then switch it up? Im trying to stay away from a training plateau. And last, when is a good time in the day to eat redmeat, I didnt know if it really mattered or if it could help before a workout-Ive heard some bodybuilders say it really helps to fill them out.
Right now I'm eating Oatmeal with blueberrys and a scoop of protein, a grapefruit, Glutamine,multi vitamin,Glucosamine-Chondroitin at 7:00am. Half a sandwich salad and protein shake at 10:00am. No-Xplode, Creatine, and Glutamine at 11:30am,preworkout protein shake then lift at 12:00p. After workout-shake, banana, and half a sandwich,wheat crackers and activia yogurt. At 4:00p I eat a cup of brown rice, and a 1/4lb of red meat. Then I eat dinner at 7:00p-usually baked chicken,veggies and potato, then protein-glutamine before bed.
If anyone could maybe give me some advise or say hey this looks bad or you might try this. I know everyone has different needs and body types, but Im open minded and trying to get the best results like anyone else. And thanks for taking time to read this
