I started this site 10 years ago after doing my first triathlon in 2001. My goal for this site is to get people healthy and happy. I firmly believe that triathlon is the best 'sport' for your body as it has less impact then the more popular single sport(running) while incorporating your upper body from swimming allows for a balanced-body approach to fitness.
Mass Building Diet
How to eat for a mass-building weight program
The Advanced Diet. Very, very...very important!!! This diet was one of two things which changed my weight training forever. I could never put on muscle weight...no matter how hard I lifted. One year after I started this diet, I went from 160-165 to 170-175 pounds of lean muscle mass!!! Here is the low-down..note, this is for me, ~170lbs...you can adjust it to your weight and goals.
LOTS OF MEALS IN SMALL QUANTITIES!!! DRINK PLENTY OF WATER!!!
7:00 AM - Protein/Carbohydrate power shake with fruit (I use GNC Pro-Performance Weight Gainer) and of course my morning espresso!
9:30 AM - One chicken breast, water.
11:30 AM - One chicken breast, potato, rice or pasta. Water.
2:30 PM - One chicken breast, water.
4:30 PM - *optional* power bar before gym, Gatorade.
5:00 PM - (Weight training followed by triathlon training.)
7:30 PM - Power shake immediately following triathlon training.
9:30 PM - Chicken breast OR can of tuna, salad, rice, pasta or potato.
*Portions may/will have to be adjusted for your training, goals and/or weight.
