How's everything going guys? I'm a new user here, somewhat uneducated when it comes to proper diet and nutrition, and thought I could use some of your much appreciate knowledge!
Some personal information about me: I am 20 years old, 5'11'' and weighing in at a whopping 145 lbs. I play junior A hockey and have taken for granted that I have been able to make it this far with my body type. I will be off to NCAA Div 1 hockey next year (coach's think I currently weigh 165) and realize that I need to bulk up and muscle up to stay at the top of the line up.
At first I was doing some research on taking anabolic steroids, specifically D-bol. However, after 10 minutes of reading I realized I am nowhere close to even taking that stuff. Which leads me to where I am right now:
I have come up with a diet, nutrition, and supplement plan and I would love it if you guys could critique it to best fit my situation. So far this is what I have:
Immediately when I wake up:
NO2 Black - this is so I can maximize the absorption of proteins, open up my blood vessels
1 Whey Isolate Protein Shake
30 minutes later:
6 eggs (5 egg whites, 1 whole egg) + fruit of the day OR
Healthy Cereal OR
90 minutes later:
mid-morning snack (1 can of tuna + more fruit)
30 minutes before lunch:
another serving of NO2 Black
chicken, steak, fish along with rice and vegetables along with a multi vitamin after
30 minutes before workout:
BCAA (branched chain amino acids)
***Would it be alright to throw some NO-Xplode before my workout or is that unnecessary?***
Immediately following my workout:
Shake with 1 scoop whey protein and 1 scoop casein protein
***Should I use 100% whey protein here or would the Whey Isolate Protein work just as well?***
fat-free yogurt, fruits, etc
Chicken, steak, fish along with vegetables and starches
1 hour before sleep:
Casein protein shake
Immediately before sleep:
1 ZMA pill
***Someone told me to drink a Mass XXX shake before I go to bed as well, how does this sound?***
So there it is, what do ya'll think? Thanks in advance for the responses!
Also, can anybody help me out with a 'good' workout plan? Currently I don't have a set plan, I actually am having trouble finding the right workout plan.
Sorry for the essay, I look forward to hearing from you guys!
