If he can barely walk to his car after his workouts there might be something wrong =). If his routine and diet are not good the pre workout supp is the not the answer to his problems
Its called overtraining in my book. He wont do it for long, don't worry about it. His body will let him know when it's time to stop. I mean, oatmeal and grapes for a preworkout meal and wondering why you're killing yourself fast in the gym. What if something got after you after your workout? Thats the logic I use. The logic of nature. We're not supposed to render ourselves immobile. Obviously the body isn't made for such a workout. Nice way to overload the central nervous system as well.
a preworkout sup? I think you should do some research on proper nutrition first. What do your other meals look like Yazzy?
1 HOUR BEFORE GYM-
-1 TO 2 CUPS OATS SOMETIMES HALF A CUP
-1/2 CUP SULTANAS
-1 SCOOP PROTEIN
-AND IF I PUT 2 CUPS OATS THEN I PUT 2 CUPS SOY MILK.
AND ALL OF THIS IS PUT IN A BLENDER.
-BETWEEN 300 400 GRAMS OF CHICKEN BREAST OR STEAK
-2 sweet potatoes and 2 potatoes
-or just 1cup brown rice
-and 2 scoops protein
2 hours later
-mid size can of tuna in oil.
-1 peanut butter sandwich
2 hour later
-2 scoops protein
-THUR BACK & LEGS
BEFORE I DO WEIGHTS I DO 45 MIN'S CARDIO AND THEN 2 HOURS LATER COME AND DO WEIGHTS AND SOMETIMES AFTER WIGHTS I GO FOR A 10MIN WALK AND 5 MIN RUN.
THE WAY I DO MY REPS AND SETS IS-
3 SETS OF 10 REPS
1 SETS OF 7-9 REPS
1 SET OF 4-7 PEPS
TOTAL 5 SETS OF 1 EXERCISE
EXAMPLE bench press-
- 80kgz 3 sets of 8-10 reps
-100kgz 1 set of 4-6 reps
-110kgz 1 set 2-4 reps
my workouts go for 1/2hours to 2 hours with 10 15 secs recovery between sets.
Ok the diet seems pretty decent but not the workout. First, why do you do Cardio before you lift? If your goal is to get bigger and gain mass the cardio is not helping. I cannot tell for certain based on your diet if you are cutting or bulking or what. SO tell us what your goals are.
Also, I think your sets and reps are a little odd. Not sure why you would do 3x10 then do another set of 7 and then another of 4. It seems excessive to me and probably contributing to the fact that you can barely move after your workout. I would say you are doing TOO much
And 10-15 seconds of rest time is WAY too little. Your rests should be 60-90 seconds so you can maximize your lifting
It's All In The Timing - Pre & Post Workout Nutrition
by Will Brink
Most people are aware that nutrient timing is as important as nutrient composition. In other words, itâ€™s not just what you eat, but when you eat it that gives optimal results. As the man says, â€œTiming is everything.â€ Consuming the right foods at the right time can have positive effects on body composition: which means more muscle and less body fat.
Health-conscious people are told to avoid simple carbohydrates, and for good reasons. Itâ€™s not true all the time and in every situation, however. Following a heavy workout, there is a metabolic â€œwindowâ€ - so to speak - where the body preferentially shuttles glucose into the liver and muscles to replace lost glycogen via both insulin-dependent and non-insulin-dependent transport mechanisms. Translated, this means your body will shuttle carbs and protein into the tissues you want (muscle) instead of storing them as fat after a workout.
To carry the analogy further, the metabolic window doesnâ€™t stay open indefinitely, so you need to take advantage of the opportunity while it lasts.
