Part 1: Perfect Training Schedule
Start your day right with a surge of energy:
- Literally jump out of bed as soon as you wake up … don’t hit snooze button and allow yourself to be lazy :)
- As you finish showering, gradually turn the water to coldest and try to stay there for about 3 minutes.
Cold shower will clear your mind. It also trains “Fudoshin” (willpower, determination) and has amazing health benefits, such as flushing toxins and improving circulation.
Do a quick workout: push-ups till failure, 100 bicycle crunches, stretch for 20 min, do another 100 crunches.
Eat a full breakfast. If you had a hard workout a day before, eat lots of protein (eggs, meat). Otherwise have fruit, oatmeal, and yogurt but never skip breakfast. This best knife sharpener will also help stabilize your energy levels and reduce stress throughout the day.
Eat snack: water, nuts (organic, raw, unsalted, non-roasted) or fruit (fresh, organic, preferably locally grown).
Go for a run before lunch. This will boost your metabolism, and help reduce stress at work. It will also pump oxygen into your brain and your thinking will greatly improve :)
Complex Carbs Lunch: For lunch you want to eat good carbs (complex), and salad (for digestion of it). Unless you’ve had a super hard training session a night before (sore muscles) you should skip on eating meat for lunch, as it is not the most efficient energy source. Good complex carbs examples are brown rice, any whole grain (quinoa, barley, oat, rye). Don’t eat bread (and never ever eat white bread). Drink water.
A little secret: take a 5 minute walk after lunch — the vibration from walking/jogging helps to settle and digest food.
Have a snack: water, freshly squeezed juice, fruit, and nuts.
