    high protein
  • Proteins (also known as polypeptides) are organic compounds made of amino acids arranged in a linear chain and folded into a globular form. The amino acids in a polymer are joined together by the peptide bonds between the carboxyl and amino groups of adjacent amino acid residues.

New Workout: Week 6 (ending)

New Workout:  Week 6 (ending)

Well I said I wouldn't take another progress photo until the 8th week, but I've since changed my diet again and workout session. The results were favorable and productive. I've since dipped into the 7.8% body fat range and packed on a couple more pounds (of muscle I hope). This may be a bit too low for my comfort so I'm going to try and raise it back up a bit, maybe to the high 8% range. My shoulders have come in a bit more as well as my abs... still no lower row yet, unfortunately. I've added a whole new core strenghtening session to my sessions in hopes to workout my trunk. I've made the following changes to diet:

Added more fruits for hydration. But 80% of all carbs (ie simple sugars) are consumed around my workout:

Pre-weight training: banana, Fiber One bar and Vitamin Water (~4g Protein and ~60g Carbs)

Post-weight training: Nitrotech protein supplement and PowerBar Performance bar (~49g Protein and 46g Carbs)

Then after my jog/walk:
PowerBar Endurance drink (17g Carbs)

I've made the following additions to my weight training:

Lateral raises on the stability ball
twising crunches on the stability ball
Plank and side plank exercises on Wednesdays
The metronome (for the obliques)

The results of the new diet: Much more energy sustained during workout. My lifts are getting more precise and my running has yielded a longer distance before absolute failure. I've added 10lbs more to my dumbbell flys, 12.5lbs more to dumbbell presses 5lbs more to my lateral raies, 2.5lbs more to my bent over raises and 10lbs more to my concentration curls.

The Theory (and if you're diabetic I don't recommend this diet):
While you're working out your glycogen stores (sugar) are depleted. After your workout your body is at the most receptive state for good quality nourishment. So no fats immediately after your workout! You want to replenish your glycogen stores and add protein for muscle repairs immediately after your session, whether weight training or cardio. Normally I wouldn't recommend carb loading like this if you're mostly sedentary all day. But after a hard, strenuous workout the carbs won't be stored as fat because your body needs it as energy. If you don't nourish your body then your muscles start breaking down in the process. To combat it spike your insulin levels up with some simple sugars. Be careful with the amount of protein though, because your body won't store protein it will secrete it out and that's hard on your systems. Sugar on the other hand, as we all know, the body will store and whatever it doesn't use it will be converted and be stored as fat! So far this theory appears to be working. I'm experimenting with different methods as I go. I hope this may help some of you that are curious about nutrition. It's amazing what a little reading will do:)

Take care everyone!

PS: When I say sugars, I mean simple sugars (monossacharides) like fruits or supplements with dextrose, maltodextrin or fructose. Don't consume complex carbs, low on the glycemic index, because your body will never metabolize it fast enough for your workouts. So don't eat cake or doughnuts afterwards. Consume fruits instead, it's a good source of water and fructose. And save your healthy fat intakes for the down times when you're not working out in the day!
