I always aim to stay as active as possible. On an ordinary day, i wake up around 5 am, walk 40 min to my gym, eat my jelly beans, then workout for 1.5-2 hours, run for 10min,and then walk back home for another 40 min.
Walking and Running
The initial walk will allow my body to warm up and get ready for my workout. Then after my workout, running and walking allow my body to cool down and burn the extra fat/sugar.
Sugar and performance
Where as the jellybeans will fuel my workout since I’m working out on an empty stomach. Sugar is always demonized on nutrition and fitness websites. The sugar itself is not bad for your health, its the quantity and timing that makes all the difference. Taking 50 grams of sugar before an intense workout is actually a necessity if you intend to improve your performance.
My actual workout
I follow the pull/push/legs split. But since my leg muscles are more advanced than the rest of my body, I started doing legs only once per week. Therefore in my normal working out week, I do once legs, and i rotate pull and push to fill the week. So if I am training for 6 days, it will be Pull,Push,Legs,Pull,Push,Pull.
