NABBA Universe – Inside the Final 3 weeks
Here is a little video blog for you showing my current energy levels and attitude.
This is realistic of how you need to push your body in the final stages of prep even though energy levels are at an all time low.
Its mentally challenging but when you have come this far and you have focus and desire you are in it for the long haul.
I am definitely looking forward to getting back to a normal lifestyle and the freedom to take my good lady wife out once in a while. That’s really where my mind is now as I have been on a tight structured plan for nearly all of this year!
Remember though, normal life to me is still training 4 times a week and eating clean but with the option of eating what I want come weekends and non- training days. Being fit and healthy is truly a lifestyle and not a destination. I value my health highly and intend being physically fit for as long as I can muster even though the years are starting to add up now.
I am also looking forward to reserving my energy for my clients too. i get just as much buzz seeing their improvements as I do my own (probably more so actually).
Current nutritional status is:
First food post morning cardio – 100ml egg whites + 2 whole eggs with 5 rice cakes or 80g oats + (greens powder)
Meal 2, 3, & 4 – 175g grilled turkey breast + 150g sweet potato or white potato
Meal 5 – 175g lean red meat + 125g sweet or white potato
Last meal post cardio – either 150ml egg whites + 2 eggs + 100g white fish OR 50g casein protein made with water.
Sunday – 30 mins fasted morning cardio + quads & glutes training through the day + 30 mins night-time cardio
Monday – 30 mins fasted morning cardio + abdominals & posing practice through the day + 30 mins night-time cardio
Tuesday – 30 mins fasted morning cardio + delt training through the day + 30 mins night-time cardio
Wednesday – 30 mins fasted morning cardio + chest & triceps through the day + 30 mins night-time cardio
Thursday – 30 mins fasted morning cardio + hamstrings, glutes & calfs through the day + 30 mins night-time cardio
Friday – 30 mins fasted morning cardio + back & biceps through the day + 30 mins night-time cardio
Saturday – 30 mins fasted morning cardio + weak points & posing through the day + 30 mins night-time cardio
I will also train instinctive so rep ranges and weights vary to how I feel on the day along with additional body-parts like abdominals, glutes and the like. I do not like to leave a stone un-turned or a body-part un-toned so I hit from every angle possible.
Thanks for following my progress
From a very tired Steve 🙂
