Meal Plan

Posted: November 5, 2014 in Announcements

Hi All,

I have been doing Josh Thigpen’s Cube Method for Strongman 2.0 for almost 12 weeks.  I have seen gains in all areas of functional and maximal strength.  I figured I have been training my muscles, now I really need to break down and get my diet in order.  I have always struggled with my weight and diet.  I have tried everything from eating very little (i.e. cottage cheese and tuna diet, only juicing diet) to eating 8 times a day with balanced food.  I have never found anything  that works for me or is easy for me to stick to.  I am going to give it another go with Josh Thigpen’s Performance Nutrition Encyclopedia (you can purchase this through, there is a link to the website in the blog roll) sample meal plan for strongman.  I have adjusted it a little bit due to when I workout and what time I usually eat due to work.  Here is what I am going to try to do for at least the next 4 weeks.

Daily Plan:

5:00 – Wake up, take 1 a day multivitamin and heart health supplement, drink Dark Rage pre-workout, 1/2 scoop

5:30 – Workout

6:45 – Drink Dark Matter post-workout, 1 scoop

7:45 – Drive to work, Drink Isofast Whey Protein, 1 scoop

8:00 – Breakfast, 6 eggs, 1 1/2 cup mixed vegetables, 1 cup oatmeal (dry measure)

12:00 – Lunch, 6 oz chicken breast, large leafy green salad w/ light dressing, 3 oz yam/sweet potato

4:30 – Dinner, 8 oz lean beef/fish, 4 cups steamed vegetables, 1 cup brown rice (cooked measure)

6:00 – Drink Dark Rage pre-workout, 1/2 scoop

6:30 – Workout

7:30 – Drink Dark Matter post-workout, 1 scoop

8:30 – Bedtime Snack, 2 cups non-fat cottage cheese, 1 cup berries

9:00-9:30 Go to bed

I am going to cook all of my meals in advance.  I am going to try to cook 6 days worth of food each weekend. If I can’t do that I will try to make meals from 5:00-6:30 pm and 7:30-9:00 pm.

    Luke cooks almost all of his stuff in advance for the week, too. He says it really helps keep himself organized. He sets up piles of workout clothes, and his shakes powders in little containers for the week, too.
