Sounds like you are an impressive sportsman and one with the right mindset which will certainly help you get far!
Once you have sorted out your training programs to achieve your goals you need to determine what your body’s calorie need in relation there to is – in other words the calorie need for 110 kg plus your training calories averaged out over a period of a week. Professional athletes should eat about six times per day with the macro nutrients in the right ratio. Divide your calorie need into six meals per day with a ratio of 50-60% carbs, 15-25% protein, and 20% fat. Also try and keep this ratio as close as possible for each of the six meals. Mostly consume low GI carbohydrates and ONLY use higher GI carbs during and after training to refuel you stores. Read food labels to supply you with the necessary nutrition information to be able to perform the calculations and visit the GI foundations of SA’s website www.gifoundation.com for more info on the glycemic index of foods.
Please look back into the archives where a while ago I pasted a dietsheet template which should give you a good idea of what to do.
Now only we can start talking supplements. Supplements are used in conjuction with a proper eating program. We make use of isotonic drinks before, during and after taining which contain high GI carbs + a little protein to refuel the stores. After a very heavy weight training session we will use a meal replacement shake as there is a 45 minute window period where in to refuel the body and therefore there is no time to rely on food to firstly digest to give us the nutrients. After all training sessions take a recovery product like Muscle Armor – I have seen best results with this product. Lastly make sure you consume at least 4 l of water per day and get enough sleep and I promise your will achieve all your goals and more.
Always a pleasure to help! Keep me posted to your progress.
