    This meal plan is suggested for an average male and should be adapted to meet your individual requirements. When planning your diet you should always take into account your activity levels, current state of health and any special dietary requirements. Please ensure you consume plenty of water throughout the day. We do not advocate or promote any specific diet or nutritional plan apart from a varied and healthy diet.

  • Training
  • In conjunction with our well-structured diet protocol a training program for lean muscle needs to be adopted, focusing particularly on muscular hypertrophy (particularly sarcoplasmic aka muscle volume via glycogen storage).

    Our ideal program consists of a 4 day training schedule to create a balanced, proportional and aesthetic physique, whilst also providing optimum time for recovery and growth. We have provided an extensive resistance training program with one HIIT session per week below with this goal in mind.

    Cardiovascular exercise can be added depending on an individual’s activity level throughout the day. For example a sedentary office worker may want to add 1-2 20 minute sessions per week while a more active labourer may not need to.
