Question
Dear Muzza fitness,

Since you have expertise in both fitness and nutrition I would like to ask you the following questions.
I started bodyweight training 3 weeks ago. I had a feeling that I needed to get back in shape but I have a feeling im stagnating or im expecting to fast results. I wonder how I could increase reps or intensity of a rep to increase my strength level? I do mostly push ups, sit ups, pull ups, lunges, squats, planks. These are done in various varieties. My other question would be regarding protein. I decided that I wanted to get my protein from food only and not from artificial shakes. However I seem to be eating every 2 hours without any rest for my intestines and stomach. I do not think this can be a good thing in the long run. How do I make sure I keep enough protein in my body without losing muscle mass? I thank you sincerely in advance. Regards Dion

Answer
Hello Dion,

I hope I can help answer your question as much as possible.

Try focusing on negative repetitions. They can really increase your strength and are a great thing to add to your workout.

You can get protein from various sources of food, every meal doesn't have to contain meat. Eggs, beans and tofu are great sources of protein and you can evenly distribute these foods throughout your day.

Eating a small source of protein every 2-3 hours will be enough to help promote muscle growth if you eat and train correctly.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Muzza

Experience

As an ISSA certified personal trainer it is my job to provide nutrition plans on a daily basis for my clients and offer nutritional help to those in need. I believe that nutrition is one of the most important aspects to getting into shape. My reason being is that if you workout out for one hour, four times a week then that's only 2% of your week. If you sleep 8 hours a night that's another 33%. So during the other 65% of your time it's nutrition that makes changes in peoples lives. So focusing more on nutrition has helped many of my clients get the results they wanted.
