    My current diet & workout...opinions?


    This is also in an older thread with diff title. Thought it may miss being noticed because of the title. I need opinions. WOW....I'm glad I found this community.


    OK...here it is.
    Example of my diet....last week

    6 am....5 eggs scrambled (5 whites,2 yellow)....3 turkey bacon...water to drink, GNC Mega Men Sport Muti, 1000 mg Vit C, tbs. Flaxseed oil, T911 sublingual

    9 am....GNC protein meal replacement shake, Quaker instant oats

    12 pm....2 cans tuna or 2 chic breasts or 2 grill fish filets. vegetable serving, bottled water

    2 pm.....Bodyfortress protein shake & apple(or some other fruit) 1000 vit C, tbs Flaxseed oil

    5 pm.....same as 12 pm, T911 sublingual

    8 pm....protein shake with a Nutragrain fruitbar

    Workouts a.m. about 45 mins
    Mon 5 am....Chest
    Perfect PushUp til failure 1 set to warmup
    Dumbell bench 150 lbs, 3 sets til failure ( alternate decline, flat, incline )
    Dumbell Flies 90 lbs, 3 sets til failure ( alternate decline, flat, incline )

    Mon Night Taekwondo Class

    Tue 5 am....Cardio & Legs
    50 jumping jacks, 50 pushups, 50 crunches
    Dumbell Squats 150 lbs...til failure
    Dumbell lunges til failure of good form
    Dumbell calf raises

    Wed....Back & Shoulders
    3 sets of pullups on Irongym til failure (wide, narrow, neutral)
    3 sets Dumbell rows between sets of pullups
    3 sets Dumbell pull overs

    Thur.... A little of everything
    Bullworker Isotonic workout, maybe squats, bench, or curling bar...whatever strikes me.

    Thur night...Taekwondo class

    Friday.... Arms

    Isolation curls, Curling bar biceps, Tricep curls all til failure

    Wkends....rest unless I get bored. May lift a little or do a kick punch drill on heavy bag. Or I may get a long Isotonic workout with Bullworker.

    My equipment is limited & can't really afford Gym while I'm training TKD. I test for 1st degree Black in June. I may take time off after that and get Gym membership. Not sure yet, I love martial arts.

    I have Dumbells and incline bench. Curling bar. Perfect Push Ups. Iron Gym pull up bar. Bullworker. Everlast Heavy Bag.

    your eating too many artificial foods. you need more whole foods in your diet. what kind of oats? sugared? plain? i would lay off the fruit bar in your 8pm meal. stay away from sugars late in the day. other than that, diet is good. try and limit to 2 meals of protein shakes unless your on the go all the time.

    Plain oats. Reason for 3 protein shakes is my work hours. I avg. 10 to 12 hr shift every day. Barely any time to work out much less cook. I cook all my workday meals on sunday...store in tupperware & refridgerate. Wife cooks my supper in evening. 3rd shake & nutragrain bar is like a night time snack. LOL...it used to be a glass of milk & 2 Little Debbie cakes. I miss Little Debbie. She was so hot & tempting.
