I’m back from a much needed and as usual, way too short vacation with the family. For meal prep for the week, I wanted to change it up from my fritatta (as there are too many eggs on this site lately) so I went for a more traditional high protein lunch for the week; chicken breast. Today I’ll go over what you need and how I prepared and portioned it.
As all of you know, I get up at the ass-crack of dawn to go to the gym. In fact, before the sun is up I’m on my way there. An important part of bodybuilding is getting your macros, especially protein. Also, it being the early morning, I like to have some coffee prior to starting my day. My stomach would feel all bloated and full if I had a protein shake, then a few cups of coffee. Then it hit me, to combine the two. Today I’ll share my caffeine infused protein shake, and how to tailor it to your personal fitness needs.
If you guys are following a lifting program and trying to pack on muscle, you gotta eat. I foolishly had to learn this the hard way and wasted two years lifting while not eating enough for muscle growth. To put on muscle, you need to eat, and you need to eat a lot of wholesome, clean foods,but things like family, work, and other time constraints can get in the way of the nutrition you need. Today, I’ll go over what meal prep is, how I prepare all my food for the week, and how even non-lifters can benefit from cooking all their food at once.
Killing it in the gym is essential for muscle and strength growth, but the other side of the coin is food. If you’re not eating enough to sustain muscle growth, your hard work in the gym will not pay off. Today I’ll review 5 protein packed foods I eat regularly and how I prepare them to keep things interesting.
