The above picture is from Christmas till now...I have gotten a little leaner and added a bit of muscle.
First a little backround:
Training: On and off the past 5 years
First I'd like to address my training time, before this year my life was 100% baseball, so all of my weight training was for the purpose of being better at getting up on the mound and pitching. That is what I mean by on and off, off season was always a big lifting time for me and then as the season came and went I would be back at square one. My strength has definitely progressed over the years but now that I am finished playing I am switching gears and want to build as much size and strength as I can.
Current lifting stats:
This week I started Amit's "Simple No Machines Workout" it was great and I look forward to working through the entire program. I was lucky enough to spend 8 months a Cressey Sports Performance last year and it fed my appetite for strength and I gained more size than I had ever done in previous off seasons. I am rambling now, so back to the title. I feel like I am spinning my wheels, I have finally worked back to my strength when I was at CSP and I seem to slowly be creeping up in size. It's mainly nutrition and future programming I am worried about, I can't just run Amit's program forever haha My diet mainly consists of the following:
Chicken,steak,lean ground beef, eggs,Chobani greek yogurt
Brown rice, red dill potatoes,oats
Peanut butter,cooking with whipped butter, whole milk
(I'm Sure I am missing some stuff here, but this is generally what I eat)
Forza Pro Protein
Hypershock Rage Pre-Workout
Sample Day Diet(generally what I eat daily)
4 whole scrambled eggs, 1 cup oatmeal
about 20-30min later
20oz Iced Coffee black w/ 1 scoop of Forza Pro
8-10oz shredded chicken(Usually seasoned with Mrs. Dash), red dill potatoes/or brown rice, steamed vegetable mix
Snacks through work day
2 string cheese, 1 Chobani fruit at the bottom yogurt and a banana
Home from work
1 giant spoon of natural peanut butter
12-14oz whole milk 1 scoop Forza Pro
1 giant spoon of natural PB
12-14 oz whole milk,1 scoop forza pro
Some type of lean beef, 1 large bag brown rice(training days)(a little less non training), vegetable mix
Once a week I will have a gigantic "Cheat Meal" (4x4,fries, xl milkshake at In-N-Out, 11 pieces of pizza, etc..) or twice a week I will have two moderate cheats.
I know this post is longwinded. I also know there are very knowledgable people here who can help me be smarter about reaching my goals. So I wanted to provide as much information as possible. Any and all suggestions will be helpful.
