    Default Balencing Nutrition with personal amount of Physical Training?

    Hey everyone. I am a sophomore in highschool and am new here. I am a first year wrestler, and an experienced weightlifter. Recently, the idea of becoming a SEAL started to appeal to me, and now its my ultimate goal.

    I am in need of some nutritional advice. I want to reach my physical potential for wrestling. This includes low amount body fat to make weight, and impressive endurence and strength to outdo my opponents. I weigh 152 pounds currently but I am interested in bulking up to 160 before next season. I want to be pure muscle, and maintain an extremely low body fat percentage: its steady at about 9% right now.

    My plan is this. I will wake up before school, and run 2 miles every at an 8:30 pace on Mon, Wed, and Fri. On Tue, Thur, and Sat, I will also wake up early and do suicides to build up stamina and endurence. Directly afterward I will do sets of pullups, pushups, situps, and jumping jacks. Then I will go to school. As soon as school ends, I will take 1.5 scoops of SuperPump 250 and go to weightlifting practice (wrestling season ended, so I only go to tournaments on weekends). On Wednesdays and Saturdays I will skip weightlifting go to my local YMCA too and swim. Sunday is a recover day.

    Once dinner is over, I will do a disk of P90x. I have completed the system before, so the workouts aren't groundbreaking for me. That said, I do make them extra challenging by using heavy weights, going faster etc.

    So an average day for me consists of 3 workouts. Running and basic exercises in the morning, Weightlifting or Swimming in the afternoon, and P90x after dinner. I have had little experience with nutrition and every website seems to say something different. So what would you recommend I eat for meals and snacks? Keep in mind that I still have to make weight. Right now, I eat about 2400 calories a day, 50% complex carbs, 30% proteins (including a Whey Protein shake), 20% carbs, and 1.5 scoops of Super Pump 250.

    Any advice on what/how much to eat to achieve maximum results? How do I achieve maximum potential in strengh endurence, whereas my opponent will be exausted and I have bearly broken a sweat? And does anybody have any advice on building enough will-power to not slack off on the nutrition plan?

    Thanks

    Hey, I am not an expert on this, but I can give my best advice. It seems that you are very dedicated because you wrote all that, so that is a good start. I say keep a notebook on your workouts and what you eat, calories, and time.
    I used to keep a journal, but I eat too much food that I didn't know the calories of and I became lazy .

    In the morning, regular oatmeal with muscle milk/milk/skim milk/soy milk/ water is a good idea. Egg whites are high in protein and are low in calories. Throw out the yolk because it has cholesterol.

    Snacks: almonds, peanuts, protein bars, a scoop of peanutbutter

    Lunch/dinner: meat, soy, fish

    carbs: don't eat white bread, make it high in fiber and whole grain/wheat


    If you are having trouble not snacking on junk food like cookies, chips, and that bad stuff, set one day as a day where you can have a cookie or bag of chips or something like that. If you are hungry, chew gum or drink water.

    For endurance, sprints are the best. But for not breaking a sweat and having your opponent exhausted, your opponent would have to be out of shape big time. Just work harder than your opponent, and it will pay off.
    For losing body fat, cycling, swimming, and long distance running.
    Running up and down stairs or running up hills and jogging down is good for legs.
    At times when you are just watching tv or using the computer, randomly get up and do squats or pushups or something similar.

    Its good that you have an organized schedule, but mix it up a little, or it might get boring.

    Water, water, water. Drink water. I think coffee is good for your metabolism? No alcohol is a good idea.

    Don't forget to review your wrestling often during the summer ( practicing shots/watching technique videos/other)

    Very good advice. I'll stick to a similar diet. Like 50% carbs, 30% protein, and 20% unsaturated fats. I am going to multiple camps this off-season and competing in a wide variety of tournaments (all folkstyle). Thank you.
