But now I know that you don't need to use machines to have a good training session. A barbell and a few tried and tested compound exercises would suffice. So I can pretty much safely say I got my training programme down pat.
My focus is now more on nutrition. Given my allergy to dairy (especially milk), my source of protein is significantly limited. So far my substitute for dairy milk is soy milk. I know soy has received some bad press but I figured if our forefathers have taken it for many years then how could it possibly harm me?
Drilling down, post workout nutrition is not my main concern. My concern is pre-workout. I know I need a good mix of slow burning carbs (i.e. low GI) and protein. Plus the meal should not be too big that I need at least a couple of hours to digest. Off the top of my head I can think of a few pre-workout meals:
- Cashew nuts + Soy Milk
- Tuna Sandwich + Apple
- Roti telur bawang (Got eggs in it... fair game(?))
I'd put oatmeal in the list to. But I hate it. Tastes like cardboard. So yeah. There's only about three pre-workout meals I can think of and I'm not even sure if they're all legit.
What do you think? Any suggestions?
