What workout plan works best for you?
My workout plans consists of weight training 5 days a week and cardio 3-4 day off-season and 6-7 days pre-contest. When training, I find my body responds better to heavy weight training. Every 3-4 weeks I also add eccentric training. However, when I'm a month out from a competition then I incorporate light weights with supersets and drop sets.
I train 2 days on, one day off and then repeat. This helps me from getting burned out and gives me plenty of rest. On my days off from lifting, I do 45 minutes to an hour of cardio, with abs, calves, and stretching. I also find that plyometric training really helps to lean out my legs and is also a great challenge!
What kind of weight training routine do you follow?
I typically workout 5 days a week. Here is my workout program:
Monday: (am) 45 min. cardio - (pm) Chest / Biceps / Abs
Tuesday: (am) 45 min. cardio - (pm) Back, 45 min. cardio
Thursday: (am) 45 min. cardio - (pm) Legs, 10 min cool down on bike
Friday: (am) 45 min. cardio - (pm) Shoulders / Triceps, 45 min. cardio
Saturday: (am) plyometric training - Abs/ Calves
I will increase or decrease cardio as needed according to my physique
What Nutrition Plan works best for you?
My secret is eating clean ALL year. In the off season I enjoy one cheat meal a week, but during the contest season, it's game time! In the off season I learned to not be afraid of carbs, this was very hard for me to accept. But, the end result was an increase in lean muscle.
I get my carbs from oats, cream of wheat, brown rice, and plain rice cakes. I taper out my carbs by the evening.
My protein sources come from chicken, lean turkey, lean hamburger, cod, salmon, tuna, egg whites and whey protein.
I could not survive my contest diet without: sugar free popsicles, crystal light, sugar free jelly, sugar free maple syrup and cinnamon. I of course eliminate these two weeks out from my show.
My Diet and Nutrition Intake
Meal 1: 3 Tbsp. cream of wheat or 1/3 cup oatmeal, 1 scoop Premium Whey Protein (chocolate or vanilla) & glutamine
Meal 2: 4 oz. chicken, 1 1/2 cups broccoli or green beans
Meal 3: Tuna or cod, 1 1/2 cups salad
Meal 4: 4 oz. chicken, "Greens First" drink and glutamine
Meal 5: 6 egg whites, 1-2 plain rice cakes with sugar free jelly (post training)
Meal 6: 1 1/2 scoops Premium Whey Protein, glutamine and broccoli.
* I add almonds and Udo's oil to some meals accordingly.
