My diet sucks, Does diet play a role in recovery? Soreness??
Here is a post I posted about in the workout section
I started biking about 3 months ago, I was 194lbs at the time. Since then I really started to get into it, headphones heart monitor and all.. Now 3 months later I am doing about 45 minutes in the morning with a heart rate of about 155 average ( 25 years old ) and an hour at night with the same HR. Been eating pretty healthy, although I need a diet plan ( Will post in that section too )
I am now about 168lbs.. Don't get me wrong, I look awesome I love the way I feel and look, my love handles are almost gone and my vein in my bicep is almost out, I feel to be ripped though I will be about 155 which is WAYYY to light!!!
I want to slow my weight loss down allot, but I love to bike so much.. going through a break up with my G/F biking is the only way to get some stress out.
I do workout pretty heavy on M-W-F
My workout is like this, please let me know if I should change anything..
Pull ups 2x12 ( 3 months ago I was doing 2x4 )
Seated rows 4x10 4x10 4x8 4x6
Stiff dead lifts ( super light ) 3x10 3x10 3x10
Dumbell rows 4x12 4x10 4x8 4x6
Barbell curs 4x10 4x10 4x8 4x6
Flat bench barbell 4 sets, first 2 are a warm up with 135 x10 the second two are 205x6 and 225x3 ( got very week from losing this much weight )
Incline dumbell 3x8 3x6 3x4 going to 80's on the last set
Tricep pull downs 4x10 4x10 4x8 4x6
Dumbell flys 2x8 2x8 superseted with over head tricep 2x8 2x8
Over head push presses 4x10 4x10 4x8 4x6
Than I do barbell lifts up to my chin ( for sholders ) 4x10 4x10 4x8 4x6
Lat. raises with dumbells 3x8 3x8 3x8
Obviously you guys see no legs here, and I know I need to do them, but my body for some reason GETS SO **** SORE.. For example EVEN if I don't do this much cardio because I do skip the morning cardio sometimes My legs ARE SORE 24x7, ALL THE TIME!! The bike kicks the crap out of them.. I would loveto throw squats in there, but I can promise you all if I do, I will not be able to do ANYCARDIO at all.. I get and stay sore for atleast a week after squating ( and yes I used to do it all the time so my body was used to it )
It sucks because I cannot NOT NOT! get sore, on any part of my body ( I wonder if diet has a role in this )
So that's it boys, any input you wanna tell me??
Here is my crappy diet.
I usually don't eat right after my cardio in the morning, I drink a shake sometimes but usually not.
I eat maybe 4 meals a day being chicken, turkey burgers, brown rice, sashimi, steak ( lean )..
I know I need to eat more, I am getting almost nothing for calories and usually eat almost no carbs.. I am cutting right now, but scared I am losing WAYYY to much muscle!

You spent a whole page listing your workout routine, and two crappy sentences describing your diet?
Come on, dude. How about a little effort?

And there will always be some soreness after working out. If this was easy, everyone would be doing it.
