Contest problem

  1. Contest problem


    I posted in the contest prep also but that doesn't get a lot of traffic so I figured I'd post here also.

    Hey guys I'm starting prep in a few weeks and I'm stuck between a rock and a hard spot.

    I work 4, 10hr shifts a week, Mon-thur. My problem is I only have 12hrs from the time I get home from work until I have to return to work. This leaves me roughly a 4 hour window to train/cardio/food prep and get ready for work (with 8hrs of sleep)

    Training fasted is working well right now, but I'm putting on mass so eating carbs before bed & during the day isn't an issue. I was thinking of 30gr of BCAA's around my workout to help, maybe even some more leucine.

    10gr 30min before with pre-workout supp's
    10gr sipp'd during my workout
    10gr post workout before i start cardio

    I can then go home and have a shake & solid meal before leaving for work. What do you guys think?

  3. Little confused.. You're still in the mass gain phase of contest prep? And you're asking about when to dose your Aminos?

    The schedule u posted looks good... Only thing i would consider is that intra workout Aminos Is essentially 'pre cardio' so I would consume thr final 10g AFTER your cardio to really enhance and begin recovery..

    Sorry for confusion. I start contest prep in about a month. I'm currently in a mass gaining phase.

    More so worried about muscle loss during contest prep from training fasted on a sub-caloric diet. I.E. not eating for close to 10hr and training in that window.
