What can you really achieve in just 12 week’s with the right nutrition, training and supplementation?
CB Conditioning (Chris Brodie) wants to put this to the test! So with the help of a good friend Adam Oxley my goal in the next 12 weeks with a lot of planning, adaption and hard work is to test to what degree you can transform your body composition. By pushing Adams limits day in day out in the gym and keeping him on track with a complete diet overhaul I hope to bring him back in a condition which will grab some attention!
In this article I am going to start off by focusing on his diet and follow up with my next article on his training as this isn’t going to just be your run of the mill “eat healthy and lift heavy” plan . Below is a current typical days eating in the life of Adam:
|Breakfast||500ml Orange Lucozade’s
2 x 25g Bag of Walkers crisps
|Lunch||Cheeseburger & chips
500ml Orange Lucozade’s
330ml Coca Cola
Adams original diet was not what I would call healthy or fit for the goal of this transformation. Looking at each of the 3 meals (I use the term “meals” loosely) we can see the vast majority of his calories come from carbohydrates and fats. Most of these carbohydrates in the form of sugar and a large quantity of the fats being saturated.
To give you a bit of background on Adam he has been training in the gym for only 2 months, giving him some knowledge of how to apply himself, but overall this means that he is entering the transformation with basically a clean slate in terms of experience. His stats are as follows:
- Age: 19
- Weight: 76kg
- Height: 5,10
- Bodyfat percentage: 14%
The new diet is dramatically different and goal orientated! Also something I feel is a good starting block in terms of both quality and quantity of food:
|Meal 1: Breakfast Shake||Liquid egg whites
Natural peanut butter
|Meal 3||White rice
|Post Workout||ADAPT BCAAS
I think it’s safe to say that this is going to be a major shock to the system! Keeping the meals small, with as many calories as possible from whole foods, the above plan is going to be our starting block. It’s rich in high BV sources of protein, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats from fish, eggs and nut butters. It also provides vitamin, mineral and antioxidant packed fibrous greens and fruit.
With regards to supplements ADAPT NUTRITION have him covered along with a pure dextrose and whey protein product. ADAPT have been good enough to send across a triple stack of products to make ensure he is performing at optimum during his workouts and recovering as fast as possible. Into his pre/post workout nutrition we will be supplementing the following:
PRE-TRAIN is without a doubt one of the best pre-workout formulas on the market to date. ADAPT have got the balance of ingredients for energy, focus, endurance and pump nailed. The BCAA+ includes all 3 branch chains and can be used both pre and post workout to aid muscle recovery. The GH ASSIST and this is by far one of the most underutilized type of supplements available is used to boost growth hormone when needed most around your workout.
