Thusday and Friday are OFF then repeat.
I am currently experimenting with various weight to see how my back response to them, right now and pray to god that it last everything is going quit fine.
Diet is has followed most days.
Wake up is 5g of creatine and wait 30 minutes then its 30g of whey protein in water with flax oil and Light force greens supplement.
post workout drink is the same 5g of creatine in grape juice then 30 minutes after whey protein shake this time 50g of protein no flax oil to benefit the insuline spike.
snake is 2 eggs with chicken breast
Lunch time is a tuna sandwish with whole wheat bread.
After noon snake is again one whey protein shake 30g in water
Supper is a chicken sandwish or anything related to chicken LOL
before bed another whey protein shake with flax oil.
I drink a lot of water, i am not talking about 8-12 glasses but more in the range of 5 litres a day, and some green tea also.
I cannot do cardio right now physio orders and i got some re-education posture exercice to do too.
Does that sound good, i lift slow and concentrate on the muscle worked, i try not to involve other muscles and specially the lower back.
I will try to up the intensity too a bit, i am sure that i am not overtraining cause i got plenty of rest and am a computer techicien so my job is not physically demending.
Thank you everyone and if there is something wrong with my diet or training i wont mind some suggestions.
Have a great weekend.

Sorry forgot to mention
Whey protein is Optimun Nutrition brand the big 10 pounds one, with 3.5 of glutamine per serving and think its less then 2 g of carbs.
Creatine is a simple cheap brand that i bought at Loblaws.
