I Love Strength

 

I try to keep my shit together. I’ve been a fat sloppy strong dude and a slightly chubby strong dude, but I prefer being in better shape. While recently dropping 35 pounds I have become a better athlete and held onto my strength along the way. Actually my deadlift and Olympic lifts have never been stronger.

 

My plan was some simple changes and sticking to some timing issues for nutrition.  I run a keto style plan.  What's that?  It is basically all meat: High fat ,high protein.  Think 55% fat (good fats, whatever that means), 45% protein, and 5% carbs throughout the day. The only change is on training days. I do carbs around training. I track these calorie-wise but not in my macros.

 

Modern BCAA+

 

My Typical Eats

 

I have been eating a ton of hot wings. Do them naked (unbreaded), with a little ranch. I roll through these at about 15 per clip. Another standard meal for me is a cheese burger, bacon, Avocado, and fried egg. These are both standard mid-day meals for me. That's about 2-3 hours pre training.

 

I will eat a bit lighter: Chicken breast, hamburger patty, or shake. With this I'll have about 30 grams of carbs. Usually a piece of fruit or something like that. During the workout I'll drink some Modern BCAA+, AminoLIFT, and a G2 (gatorade). Post workout I'll go about another 60 grams of carbs: usually sweet potatoes or a bit of rice with my dinner. All of this is done around my training window.

 

Pre and Post Workout Nutrition

 

Pre workout I will eat a bit lighter: Chicken breast, hamburger patty, or shake. With this I'll have about 30 grams of carbs. Usually a piece of fruit or something like that. During the workout I'll drink some Modern BCAA+, AminoLIFT, and a G2 ( gatorade). Post workout I'll go about another 60 grams of carbs: usually sweet potatoes or a bit of rice with my dinner. All of this is done around my training window.

 

That's what has been working for me. Would this be the same plan I would follow to try and drastically lean up? No. But I am a strength athlete. I just want to ditch some of the fluff and be healthier. I also do some HIIT style conditioning 3-4 times a week on top of my normal strength program in my Strength Lab.
