7 am: Coffee
8:30: 1 packet Kodiak Protein Oatmeal, local honey, 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (currently Dymatize Hydrolyzed Whey, I love it a lot)
11:30: 4-6 oz of salmon, 3/4 cup of rice
3pm: Preworkout (currently Astro Flav Drip ,I love the strawberry watermelon flavor and it is caffeine free)
Workout. Pretty much every day. Sometimes twice a day on the weekends. 1 to 2 hours.
4 PM: 10-15 minute walk. Dymatize Fruity Pebbles Whey (2 heaping scoops), it’s better than the real thing. I love it.
Post Workout: Orange Juice, Cranberry Juice, and Greek yogurt in a shaker cup
Dinner: 6-8 oz. beef, 1 cup of rice
Before bed: 2 heaping scoops Fruity Pebbles Whey.
That is it. This is a shift away from the intermittent fasting that was a resounding success. Training volume and intensity is going up. The added protein I can already see cutting recovery time dramatically. Weights are rising steadily. Scale has not budged from 268 pounds in over 2 months but measurements are going up and down in all the right places. Waist measurement is down 2 inches. I feel really good.
Alpha GPC/Vinpocetine with morning coffee.
Zinc immunity and Vitamin d3 with lunch meal. The 10-15 minute walk that I take midworkout is outside and Scottsdale almost always has sunshine. Protect your vitamin D people!
Currently drinking 1-2 gallons of water per day. Half or more of daily intake is during workout or shortly after.
I get massages as frequently as I can afford and they are an absolute game changer for recovery. My new living arrangements have a hot tub, and most days I soak for 10-15 minutes. Usually between the post workout shake and dinner.
I’ll do a breakdown of my workout program in the next article.
