A Day In The Life Of A Bodybuilding SARMs Advocate
Not many people do this, so I thought I would just quickly tell you about a typical day in the life of me as a bodybuilder who is also using SARMs, and who is also advocating a very healthy lifestyle.
I’ve seen some really unhealthy junk out there in terms of advice, and lifestyle seems to come 2nd to just pumping iron as hard as you can, for as long as you can, while smashing as many SARMs as possible.
So this is only going to be basic, and I won’t go into details about my exact exercise regime because everyone is different, but I want to just give you a breakdown of what a typical day looks like, so you can see how you match up in terms of your approach.
How My Day Typically Starts
When I get up in the morning, the first thing I will look at is my SARMs stack for the day. It’s always best to take it on an empty stomach first thing in the morning, because then you’ll get the best absorption, and it will be working for the whole day.
So I’m currently doing a SARMs stack for bulking, consisting of 10 mg of Testolone, 10 mg Cardarine, and 5 mg YK-11.
What I’ll do is drop them sublingually under my tongue one at a time and let them absorb. Then I will have a small glass of water, and that will be my lot for one hour.
After that, I’ll have breakfast. Usually it’s a vegetable-based smoothie. Spinach, mango, and avocado, vitamin pill, magnesium, zinc, scoop of oats, and a scoop of flavorless protein powder.
I mix that together to make 1.5 L of liquid, and I will drink that half and half. Meaning half at that point, and the other half over the next hour on my way to work.
The Meals To Eat Throughout The Day
At lunchtime I will take some other supplements if I’m on them. This allows a couple of hours for the smoothie and SARMs to be sorted by my body.
If I’m on some CrazyBulk supplements, this is the time I would take them, so again it’s on an empty stomach.
Then I will have lunch. It will usually be something like chicken and salad, with some wholegrain rice if I’m at home, or if I’m on the go, I’ll mix something up to eat at work that similar.
All the way through this, I’m thinking lean and clean in terms of my diet. Small regular meals allow my body to clear them through and benefit from the nutrition without retaining any fat or excess calories.
The only time I would change this, is after I’d been to the gym, when I will have a meal that has more carbohydrate and protein in it to help recover, and also to help my muscles start the repair process.
In the evening I will have another snack. This helps to maintain things, but also I will make the stack larger if I’ve been to the gym and worked out that day, because it will help my body to recover as I sleep.
It will be a small meal, lean proteins, vegetables, and no carbohydrates.
My Daily Habit For The Gym
I hasten to add here that I don’t go to the gym every day, that is self-destructive. I aim to go down the gym once every three days, to work out for two hours consistently.
Between gym visits I also aim to be doing 30 minutes of cardio and fat burning every single day.
One hour before I hit the gym I’ll have a small snack and an energy drink. I don’t want to take on too many calories in food that clog up my stomach, but I find I need instant energy ready to hit the gym.
In the gym itself, I will just drink water. If I’m really struggling, I might have an energy bar to hand as well.
One hour after I’ve been to the gym, I will have a high-quality protein bodybuilding shake. Mix up around 500 cal worth of powder, and add to it a good scoop of creatine. I know you can take creatine before, to help muscle energy, but I prefer to use it afterwards to help with muscle recovery. There’s no reason why you can’t use it before and after though, it’s not going to do any damage.
Other Healthy Habits To Build Into The Perfect Day As A Bodybuilder
I’m going to go through this all in detail when I talk about bodybuilding meal plans, but I hope from this quick outline you’ve been able to see a bit more about what happens every day with me as a bodybuilder.
I don’t obsess about it, and I don’t try and cram tens of thousands of calories in, even during a bulking phase. I think about the pressure it’s putting on my liver, and I try and avoid the madness you see on some YouTube channels cramming down so many calories, especially proteins.
That’s because I like giving my body a break, so I do shorter bulking phases of eight weeks, followed by a six-week break in SARMs cycles. That way I’m not destroying my testosterone levels too much, and I’m not putting too much strain on my muscle and bone tissue.
The key thing I want to get across you here is that it’s healthy habits that can help you for the long term. You have to aspire to be developing and maintaining a lean and muscular physique that doesn’t come at the price of your mental and physical health.
Crucial to this are two things which people don’t usually talk about. Eating lean and clean, and doing the cardio. All you’ll usually read about is pumping as much iron as possible and cramming SARMs down your throat, and for me, that’s not the way to go.
