Hey guys. I'm 19 and am currently a Finance student. Goal is a solid IB gig. That's not the topic of this discussion. I wanna know what you bankers do to stay in shape! Let me know anything and everything.. share your routines! This is simply out of curiosity and is just for fun guys.
DISCLAIMER: I am not a health expert nor do I think of myself as one at all, this is just my personal routine. I hired and used a personal trainer for 4 months; after that I let him go and have been doing my own thing. I believe that personal trainers are not needed once they have taught you everything they know, and would never have a trainer for more than 6 months.
Upon waking up, take one scoop of BPI Glutamine with 16oz of water. First thing I do.
Fun Fact: Drinking 16oz of water upon waking up will increase your metabolism up to 110%.
Next is cardio, on an empty stomach.
I add 1 scoop of BPI CLA + Carnitine, blend into my water for my run. (sno cone flavor kicks ass).
HIIT training.. I sprint a minute for every minute I spend jogging.. Usually end up running for 25 min. I run on a treadmill with a slight incline, on good days i'll run outside!
Get home, shower, breakfast. I take a multivitamin and fish oil after breakfast. Any multivitamin and fish oil that you do your research on is sufficient; it's hard to go wrong with those.. just grab the GNC blend if you aren't sure! I use "Klean Athlete" Multivitamin & Omega fish oil pills.
Breakfast usually consists of 12oz egg whites and 2 full hard boiled eggs with 1/2 cup oatmeal.
So my mid-day is really just me eating, I like to do my lifting at night.
Meal 2: 7oz chicken breast, 1/2 cup white rice
-90 min later-
Meal 3: 7oz salmon, 1 cup of greens. (I eat broccoli and asparagus, sometimes I bake some zucchini.)
Meal 4 (Pre-Workout):
-1/2 whole avocado
-1 slice of ezekiel bread
IMO: Meal 4 is a perfect pre workout meal, you don't get full or bloated but you have a great amount of energy.
-Bare Performance Nutrition Pre-Workout (15-20 min prior gym)
-BPI Best BCAA's (sip while working out)
I have a pretty complex workout schedule, but I gym 5 days a week(mon-fri) and my current routine is 16-20 working sets and between 6-10 reps/set.
Day 1: Shoulders/Calves
Day 2: Back
Day 3: Legs
Day 4: Chest/Calves
Day 5: Arms/Forearms
I don't know about you guys, but I have to do arms/forearms last before my 2 day rest period. They're too burnt to go into chest with full power before 2 days pass by.
Post Workout/Final Meal
Meal 5: Bare Performance Nutrition Milk'n Cookies flavored whey isolate, 2 scoops; mix with 1/2 cup of oats. (Don't give me shit for using a flavored protein. It's fucking awesome and only has 2% DV of sugar, the rest is straight isolate protein)
Meal 6: Romaine salad w/ 4oz chicken shredded
I drink about 1-1.5 gallons of water daily.
What do you guys think? This works really well for me and I have seen tremendous gains, it's perfect for my body and leaves me with a clear mind and tons of energy at all times!
*P.S: Any of you guys actually go to Equinox? if so is it worth it (lol)? I live in Northern Virginia and go to a pretty nice local club called Sport&Health and also Gold's. *
