critique would be appreciated
Hi, I would appreciate some critique following your recommended diet/goals format:
I have been training for 18 months, mainly cardio, and only 2-3 months ago have decided to try and bulk and concentrate more on weights. I have no wish to become really big, I am just looking to add on about 1 stone of muscle. I am particuarly trying to put the weight on my legs and have seen a really good result on my calves over the last 2 months. I train legs twice a week, one day cardio, and two days upper body with two days rest in between.
Typical Diet over last month or so:
6.30 get up and have fresh fruit smoothie (usually berries, banana) with 30g whey
6.45 2-3 shredded wheat with milk (I need fibre at this time for bowel reasons)
10.00 tin of mackarel, pilchards or sardines
12.30 chicken salad or chicken in granary roll
17.00 Pre work out small sandwich (always granary bread) or cereal (oats) before workout
18.00 PWO 40g whey in tropicana orange juice (I can't stomach it in water!)
19.00 main meal of chicken breast/fish or steak with plenty of veg and potatoes or rice
21.00 I often struggle with this meal as I am usually really full, but may have 2 eggs on 1 slice of granary bread for example
On non training days I ditch the pre and post workout. I also drink 4 to 6 glasses of water a day, and maybe the odd glass of wine with my main meal.
I am 31, 5' 9.5", 10.5 stone, I don't know my body fat, but I have very little that is visible.
I work in an office most of the day, but usually get out and about and walk maybe 2 miles most days.
I don't take any supplements other than unflavoured whey, as above.
I probably go out once a month on average and have a skinful of beer.
Thanks in advance for any responses...
